Continue or Kill: The Halloween Movies

These days if the Hollywood bigwigs aren't remaking something, they're tacking on more sequels to an existing franchise. Franchises are getting reboots and TV shows are being brought back to life with all new casts. Sometimes it can be a good thing (Star Trek) but certain ideas probably should have been killed (cough! 90210 cough!). So, instead of lamenting remake or reboot ideas right off the bat, I thought I'd put it to a vote.

Last year Rob Zombie released his remake/reimagining of John Carpenter's 1978 movie Halloween, which itself had spawned a whole line of sequels. This Friday we'll see another Rob Zombie remake, this time of the original first sequel to Halloween (got all that?). The 1978 movie is probably my favorite scary film to watch on Halloween itself but I'm not a fan of Zombie's remake, and I'm not so sure we needed a remake of a sequel to Halloween.

What do you think? Are you still interested in the Michael Myers character? Or should we finally lay this slasher film series to rest?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often. Margaret

First of all, Rob Zombie should have NEVER been given the greenlight to remake, er, reboot one of the best horror films of all time! RZ is nothing more than a horror film buff whose music career afforded him the power and "pull" to make movies.....movies that are blatant rip offs of far superior efforts by talented artists. They need to bury this film franchise and fast! Let's try to come up with something new and original. Hollywood needs to stop trying to profit off the innovations and imaginations of others and inspire current and future filmmakers to be more than no-talented hacks.

Ugh be done with it already! The theme song to Halloween scares the bejesus out of me so I really do not want this to continue.

I am a huge horror film fan and even I think it is too much. Don't get me wrong...I will absolutely watch it. I just would like a new horror film. For example, Hostel was awesome, the sequel not so god. Saw great, the sequels are overkill and still not done. Where is the true creativity in Hollywood?

I am sick of all remakes, sequels, threequels, etc. Get some new ideas, Hollywood!

Being the fan of the horror genre that I am. And also still having some slots left for my worst movies of the year. I admit, I will be one of those viewing it this weekend. Im expecting it to be maybe one out of 5 stars at most.

I wish they would let Michael Myers rest. Or if they have to continue, maybe past the torch, to one of his offsprings they could conjure up. Still, I wouldnt be surprised if this 11th version, I believe it is. Is in the top three at the box office on opening weekend.
