These days, the horror genre is flooded with stale and predictable sequels. However, every once in awhile filmmakers are making original and terrifying additions to director David Gordon Green vision.
Does Halloween 2018 fall into a classic?
Blumhouse Productions has become the go-to company that is putting out some of the best horror films like Get Out, Happy Death Day, and the Purge franchise. Now, the studio tackling one of the best slasher franchises of all time, Halloween. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest on the Halloween sequel which arrives this October.
The Halloween sequel includes OG actors like Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle, reconnecting all of the Halloween sequels, according to writer Danny McBride.
McBride has taken a new approach on the classic horror film, yet he has been able to reference each of the movies throughout the new sequel.
“This picks up after the first one. The Halloween franchise has kind of become a little bit of like choose your own adventure, you know like there’s some many different versions, and the timeline is so mixed up, we just thought it would be easier to go back to the source and continue from from there. It was nicer than knowing you’re working on Halloween 11, it just seemed cooler, ‘we’re making Halloween 2’. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there.”
What we find interesting is that McBride will reference and pay homage to nine sequels that followed John Carpenter’s original, according to Flickering Myth.
The films span over two decades so where will this movie take place? Current day or back in the early 80s?
We wonder if McBride’s humor will show in the horror film when referencing the other movies, Like Laurie Strode’s secret daughter Jamie, or Tommy Doyle (played by Paul Rudd who was never seen from or referenced again? Then, there is Jamie Strode played by Jamie Lee Curtis – her character was written off as dead in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers, but resurfaced in H20.
We hope Danny will connect the films, answer unanswered questions and fix all the holes between each film.
