    Yup it's official...there will be a sequel released as soon as next summer and yes it will be in 3D! Rob Zombie will not be returning for the third but Bob Weinstein gave a hint at who he is negiotiating with to take the helm as director..."he studio is in negotiations with a new director, whom he declined to name, who has experience in horror and has a "different take" on the franchise."

    Here's the link to the article: http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/17231

    Thoughts? Reactions? Who would you like to see pick up the 31-year-old horror franchise?

    Personally, I am sick of 3D! We are going to have a lot of movies released in 3D next year:
    -Underworld 4 3D
    -SAW VII 3D
    -SAW 3D (re-release)
    -Halloween 3D

    I am looking forward to seeing who will take part in Halloween 3D! How are they gonna do it?! I'm sure they'll find a way!icon_razz.gif

    Hmmmm. Think I liked the olders better also. Did anyone else notice this post production mistake in BOTH the old first one and the new first one??

    PALM TREES! In both films there were palm trees visible. The movie was supposed to take place in the midwest on Halloween. All the trees are green , flowers blooming, green grass. There was even a banana tree in one shot ahahaha. Both films were shot in California.

    Now the 70s films I can understand the post production problems with editing all that out, but in todays world with CGI anything can be painted out. Shit the big palm tree in the one scene just after the girls yell at Michael...coulda been a pine tree with CGI.

    Anyone enough of my Geeky run off hahaha.

    It's been rumored that they are remaking Scream and Night Mare on Elm street. Eh! No one can replace Heather Langencamp or Robert Englund.
    Scream please! icon_biggrin.gif Some originals should not be remade.

    A Nightmare On Elm Street already been remade - its in post-production NOW & gonna be out in theatres by April 2010.

    They aren't remaking SCREAM - they're making a new trilogy/continuing with parts 4,5,6.

    Personally, just cuz Zombie's HALLOWEEN II made 3rd (which isn't tanking), doesn't equal that it was horrid. Trust me, part 8: Ressurrection was a POS.

    But yes, the direction of the series went into new territory with this.

    You guys are saying NONE of ya liked Rob Zombie's THE DEVILS REJECTS? That movie was great.

    Oh, and possibly - one reason FD4 blasted away HALLOWEEN II is ONLY cuz the 3D films cost mucho more than a 2D ticket. That does equate into it.

    Devils Rejects as well as House of 1000 Corpses was great. I didn't get to see either of the horror films this weekend, only had time for Inglorious Basterds.

    FUCK CGI! LOL naw, CGI is cool for things involving this. Just not....gore or special effects. Fake & cartoony looking on top of film. anyways....

    Yea John Carpenter shot Halloween in the spring of '78 for it to be released several months later in the fall. Was a low budget/independent picture. Even those "brown leaves" you see blowing on the street & lawns throughout the movie ---- those were the same brown bag of leaves scraped up off ground & used again for every shot. Gotta be resourceful if independent ;)

    I don't feel like there have been that many 3D movies...most of them are cartoons I'd never see anyway. Not sure how you could be sick of it already.....I'd think you be sick of movies NOT being in 3D...since there are 100x more of thoseicon_biggrin.gif

    The only movie I've seen so far in 3D was My Bloody Valentine...which had a pretty bad story but the effects were stunning. Underworld franchise is meh and Saw also became meh.

    For 3-D.....the new Alice in Wonderland should be great.....

    awww No more remakes they should take off from Halloween 8 theres still some un left stories like the Baby and Boy in part six then Michael's Nephew in part 7 What happened to Thoes People.. Tommy from part one ran off with the Baby and Boy in part 6...

    Wasnt Michael trying to kill all his Famliy memebers and pass on the demon inside of him to that boy..something like that right..

    instead of Zombie's retake on it Having Michael kipnap his sister..Yup Zombie and his writers already messed up the story with thier version..but then again showed a new light by telling more of Michael's story and making him Cock ass strong like he should be... But no kidnapping his sister and famliy memebers...When he should be trying to kill them..

    USMC - the point of Rob Zombie remaking HALLOWEEN was to start from scratch. Cuz, lets face it - by part 6's muddles storyline of Curses & cults, & part 7 (H20) ditching previous storylines from parts 4-6, the whole franchise became a mess. H20 & part 8 can't weave into the storylines of parts 5-6, cuz they cancelled eachother out completely. Anyway the point is - the niece michael was after in parts 4-5, the "thorn" curse/cult - NONE of this was originally intended as John Carpenter's vision of what he began w/ his first HALLOWEEN. Michael was supposed to be nothing MORE than a scary ass boogeyman & the representation of undying evil. Nothing more. Then, as the 80s progressed (& even now) - more installments were made ONLY to create explanations behind who Michael was .... when in fact there was NO NEED for any of that.

    Though, I like some of these installments - Dimension Films scrapped ALL the other installments plots cuz it just became ONE - HUGE - HOT - SHITTY - MESS HAHAHA icon_lol.gif

    One of my favorite stories about the Halloween franchise is that John Carpenter was so at a loss as to how to make a sequel to the smash hit that he got drunk on a 6-pack of beer and was then hit with the "inspiration" to make Michael and Laurie siblings. Gotta love that kind of careful creative process.

    naw i like that sort of shit, Rujock. good catch, dude. nothing compares to originals but remakes are still pretty cool as long as they leave out the fricken cgi bull. and, yeah, enough of the 3D junk. never works on me anyways.


    Im not a huge fan of CG. Im saying if the film is supposed to be in Illinois or Iowa (I forget where exactly) there are not Mexican Fan Palms 50 feet tall there, nor are flowers and grass full grown and blooming october 31st LOL. I was just saying it was amusing that both never cut the palm and banana trees out

    the original halloween is a masterpiece of film. you'll frequently find it on top 100 film lists and within books devoted to the study of film. the use of shadow is remarkable in the work, as well as the brilliant direction of angles a p.o.v. Zombie has no understanding of the intricacies that made it so spectacular, instead relying on the now-accepted wave of horror films that value gore and weird/disturbing deaths over technique and subtlety.

    Zombie is a bigger horror movie fan than all of us combined. He understands the intricacies, yet does things his own way. If he did the exact same movie, that would be worse.

    I'd rather have someone try and do something their own way and fail than completely copy someone else's style and succeed.

    redheadguy saidFinal Destination won at the box office making $27million in its first weekend while Halloween 2 scared up $16 million.



    ......which doesn't prove a thing as far as 'quality' goes. The 4 Final Destination films are pretty much cut/paste & dry when it comes to the franchise's regurgitated formula.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the franchise & they're thrilling ... but nothing more than setups to outrageous murder-set-pieces.

    Halloween II, however (though, nothing brand new either as far as plot goes) does install a real threat w/ it, & actually has a few characters you truly care for. And w/ Rob Zombies direction, it is something different. And honestly, yea I thought it was a MUCH SUPERIOR film to his Halloween remake (2007).

    Here's another official but "unused" trailer for HALLOWEEN II - it's pretty badass w/ the Moody Blues song "Nights in White Satin" playing over it. Loved how he used that in the movie.

    Interesting too that this movie was filmed in Atlanta & surrounding neighboring areas in Covington, GA

    A co-worker let me borrow The Devil's Rejects (I had it for like 3 months), but I never saw it. I wanted to, but all I could think about was the clip they showed on Bravo's Top 100 Scariest Moments. It was of a woman running aimlessly around while wearing her husband's face.

    I like horror. Gothic horror literature and horror movies, but something about Rob's approach doesn't send me. Kinda unnerving. And on this other message board I frequent, practically everyone there is a fan of his. I feel so alone.
