So, today isn’t April Fool’s Day again? It’s April 3rd? Oh, shit.
Rumors are flying about Michael Bay’s company, Platinum Dunes, possibly taking over the Halloween franchise.
Let’s have a moment of silence for an already over-poached horror goldmine.
Do we, does anyone need another Halloween movie? Haters be damned, but I LOVED Rob Zombie’s remake of the original Halloween. On the same note, I HATE his Halloween 2. It was truly a pointless film. Carpenter’s original classic is my favorite horror film of all time. It was a brilliant underdog in every conceivable way, and here we are again debating whether Michael Myers dons the mask and kills again. In my humble opinion, the only thing that needs to die is the Halloween franchise.
Don’t get me wrong, I would buy the shit out of an expertly written and drawn Halloween comic book. I would be interested in other forms of the characters, but the 3D crap, the reboot crap, just needs to stop. If you’re a legit Halloween fan, you roll your eyes every time there is mention of a new one.
If you know anything about Bay, then you know his Platinum Dunes people delivered us the following lame remakes: The Hitcher, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and the upcoming and undoubtedly shitty, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Yeah, the one where they’re aliens. No harm in changing the origin story to an unrecognizable pile of shit is there?
So, like you, I’ll sit back and wait for some action. I hear Bay is having some concept art created for the potentially new film. Myers is a mental hospital fleet car that “transforms” into an unstoppable Illinois murderer.
Man, remember when Halloween III Season of the Witch was the worst one?
