Anybody here a fan? I've been one for many years. It's totally brutal and dark, yet simple, and I love it. Every other slasher franchise just doesn't meet up to Halloween. Micheal Myers is a fascinating character to me. In fact, I frequently make comparisons of Michael Myers and Darth Vader as being these terrifying and unstoppable yet totally emotionless and expressionless entities. I have varying opinions about 4 and 5, Curse of Michael Myers, and Rob Zombie's remakes. Season of the Witch, H2O, and Resurrection I just kind of ignore altogether. What do you think of the fact that they've made all the subsequent Halloween movies after the first one to no longer be canon, and now the 2018 installment will be considered it's direct sequel? I personally don't like that. I've always seen I & II as basically being one movie. Whenever I reference the original Halloween, in my mind, I imply them as being connected. And I feel like they could have kept Halloween II as being a part of it, and just make the 2018 movie a continuation of it. Obviously, the Laurie Strode being his sister story line is the biggest reason they decided to make a clean break, because that wasn't mentioned until Halloween II. But even with that still being there, they could have dispelled that in the upcoming movie. It's the studio's choice, and I won't let it keep me from enjoying it. I attended the panel for the 2018 movie at San Diego Comic Con just a few weeks ago. And I must say, Jamie Lee Curtis absolutely killed it! She gave almost an impromptu speech it seemed like about how important it was for her to portray Laurie Strode as a strong female who has come back from this traumatic experience to face her attacker once and for all. That the only reason she returned to the role was as part of an agreement with the producers and writers that Laurie Strode would be written this way. She felt very strongly about it, and would not have returned otherwise. And it's obviously in keeping with the current times we are in, which she totally acknowledged and made no apologies about. She spoke of random acts of violence as being probably the most terrifying reality we face in the world, and how this movie is obviously a depiction of that. At the end of the panel they debuted about a 3-4 minute uncut sequence from the movie. I won't spoil it for anyone. But it is absolutely brutal, uncompromising, and unforgiving. This movie is not going to be for the faint of heart. Here's the trailer for it. This one IS watchable.
