This has been a good week for fans of unstoppable masked killers. First we find out that Jason Vorhees will be getting his own Friday The 13th tv series, and now Bloody Disgusting's sources at Cannes confirm that Michael Myers will be worrying babysitters once again in Halloween 3D. The movie was originally envisioned as a second sequel to Rob Zombie's Halloween, but the site say they're not sure if that's still the case of this will be yet another reboot. No other details are provided, though we do know that Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier wrote the last draft of the screenplay. Would you rather see a continuation of Zombie's canon or another take altogether? Or would you prefer if they left the unkillable bastard alone altogether? Sound off below.

It can't possibly be worse than Halloween 3: Season of the Witch.

Can't they just let slasher films die already?
MrReese - 4/30/2014, 3:19 PM
I was ok with the Zombie's 1st Halloween. The 2nd 1 was complete [frick]ing booshit though.I'll prolly still watch it. :)

Give the franchise to Avi Arad, apparently he thinks he knows what he's doing with Spider-Man

My favourite horror movie. Hell, it's one of my favourites in general. I f*cking love it.
GiantNerd - 4/30/2014, 3:23 PM
Don't care what anyone says if slasher movies continue to exist I'll continue to watch them. They have been my shit since I was a kid.
TheMaster2011 - 4/30/2014, 3:26 PM
Saw Rob Zombie's first Halloween movie and liked it. Haven't seen all of the 2nd yet but i hope this movie is set in his universe. I'd also like Zombie to return to the franchise.

When it has 3D in the title you can tell the best its going to be is a generic popcorn flick designed to leech money from the audience. I could understand if it was a sequel that just happened to be in 3D - however the entire focus of this seems to be on the 3D gimmick.

Either way, Slasher flicks are boring nowadays as after the first few you realise that they are just going to kill most the cast each time - and it gets dull seeing unlikeable people die.

Alright, I'll see how this plays out and check it out when it hits theaters. I [frick]ing love the original, 2, and 3 was cheesy fun (the other sequels can go [frick] themselves to the 10th dimension). I also really like both of Rob Zombie's films, I feel when he tries he can make some damn good horror. Whoever was the cinematographer on his Halloween films, House of 1,000 Corpses, and especially Devils Rejects, needs a damn award.

Well, I suppose I'll wait and see what it's like.

WHHHHHHHYYYYY
sahin86 - 4/30/2014, 3:48 PM
As long as Rob Zombie is not helming it...WOHOOO!

Ultimately what Halloween comes down to is Dr. Loomis. He's the character that drives those movies. At the end of the day that's what makes Michael Meyers different from Jason, Leatherface, and Freddy. Meyers was the white whale to Loomis' Ahab and his feverish chasing of Meyers propelled the movie around Meyers' actions. In the other slasher flicks we basically wait for the characters to figure out what's going on and ultimately fell the villain (usually by luck). Meanwhile Loomis is trying to tell everyone what's up and they don't listen and thus perish. It's why I like the Halloween flicks better than the other slasher flicks.

In H2O, Jamie Lee Curtis' character took that roll. In Halloween 8 (whatever it was called) they tried to fill that role with who? Busta Rhymes? Granted there was a whole lot more wrong with that film but lack of Loomis was a major one. I originally thought casting Malcolm McDowell was genius but unfortunately Rob Zombie's script didn't leave him a whole lot to do. I don't know, he didn't do it for me. So if anything I'd want to see who was going to fill that role - not necessarily Loomis but someone Loomis-like.

With others here, Zombie's first Halloween, very good, second one, wtf happened? One of best theme songs ever... original movie still the best...
batz11 - 4/30/2014, 4:00 PM
B&Y, [frick]ing right, worst shit ever, saw in the theater too...MM wasn't even in it, was he?
maninfinesuit - 4/30/2014, 4:01 PM
Just go back and continue in the original timeline. No one cared about Rob Zombie's 'evil white trash' take on Myers enough to be confused by that approach.
DrunkenNukem - 4/30/2014, 4:03 PM
i only watched the 1st one, the rest i didn´t care.
Ocelot - 4/30/2014, 4:05 PM
If it's like this it could



sadly it wont, especially with that title.
batz11 - 4/30/2014, 4:06 PM
Hmmm...


Realgarcia - 4/30/2014, 4:08 PM
He is the real only masked killer
maninfinesuit - 4/30/2014, 4:09 PM
I actually liked Halloween III. They'd have my full support in going back to Carpenter's original concept of an anthology series centered on the holiday itself.

Also, that ending.

Gnyah123 - 4/30/2014, 4:10 PM
i like zombies halloween!!
Gnyah123 - 4/30/2014, 4:14 PM
im sure hollywood wanted creative control over zpombie halloween 2 thats why it sucked
unless it was the script? but i hope and wouldnt mind zombie coming back to direct just dont mess up like u did wit the second that i still liked

the second movie was pretty decent the first 45 minutes was good i think...
the whole dreaming n chasing the girl in her dreams was cool
how she needed to have therapy in order to move on i liked that idea..
SuperCat - 4/30/2014, 4:16 PM
Another one I can add to my list of "sh*t to see on TNT."
Nick56 - 4/30/2014, 4:18 PM
Please let this be a new reboot and not connected to the godawful Rob Zombie stuff
Panoramacon - 4/30/2014, 4:22 PM
They need to beg John Carpenter to come back and do something new and creative with this franchise. I have felt for a long time that, unlike Jason, there is a greater potential for character development with Michael Myers that the constraints of the slasher genre prevent writers from exploring. But since Carpenter created the character, I would love to see where he in particular would go with it.
HeadPool420 - 4/30/2014, 4:42 PM
Let's see a Dr Giggles remake.
GenerationX - 4/30/2014, 4:47 PM
Reboot...don't remake the original but start fresh. Zombie's movies were friggin weird as hell. Make them VERY bloody but less weird shit and no Michael Myers childhood bs. The only things Zombie's movies had going for them was they were violent, bloody, and tits...
teentitansrock - 4/30/2014, 4:52 PM
Rebot this cause Rob Zombie's version SUCKED!!!!! Do it justice and make it in the vien of the 1978 version and not some House of a 1000 Corpses sick weird rip off!
Silentman - 4/30/2014, 4:52 PM
They should reboot it if they make it at all. Zombie's flick kinda sucked. I understood what he was trying to do but he completely missed the whole point of the character of Michael. You're not supposed to know why he's a killer cause he's not supposed to even be human. He's just the embodiment of evil.
McFarlaneFan - 4/30/2014, 5:41 PM
Zombie's remake was pure and total shit! He didn't get the premise and he sure as hell doesn't understand horror.

Zombie's Halloween was like a Tarantino wannabe film with lots of unnecessary chatter and an over emphasis on irrelevant character interactions.

The original Halloween scared the hell out of people in 1978. If it had been like Zombie's total shit film it might have intrigued them a bit with the white trash stuff but it would never, ever have scared them.

The time for slasher films is past. Reality became more terrifying than a guy with a butcher knife killing teens long ago.
There's absolutely nothing a Halloween movie can offer that hasn't been done before and done better.
case - 4/30/2014, 6:08 PM
Zombie's remake freaked the shit out of me when I saw it. It did what it was supposed to do and was well put together.

Is here any stories left to tell within the original canon? I say go on with the more recent ones, and give a definite no to a reboot.

Honestly, it's not like we're talking about high art here...
maninfinesuit - 4/30/2014, 6:11 PM
There was a twenty-fifth anniversary comic that followed Sam Loomis' son David continuing his father's work while trying to avoid the obsession that undid him. Think that would be very interesting to see on film.
xmandj - 4/30/2014, 6:15 PM
Halloween 1,2 and 4 and also Halloween h2o when Jamie came back are really good. The first rob zombie one was okay well some parts are but the 2nd rob zombie Halloween was trash I have know clue why michael myers mother was in any of them I guess it was a opportunity to put his wife in the films.
MericawithanM - 4/30/2014, 6:57 PM
I really liked the first rob zombie halloween but the 2nd one was literally the most disappointed I have ever been leaving a movie theater. But I am huge fan of slasher/horror films so I am totally for this.
