The new “Halloween” movie trailer dropped this week and I got goosebumps watching it! Looks fucking awesome, I would say! I’m a huge Halloween fan. I’ve seen all of the movies… even the two Rob Zombie “Halloween” films.
Some of you may ask, why was this new movie made??? Well, John Carpenter always had a pure dislike for the sequels that came after the original Halloween and if you do a little google research, Carpenter had some negative things to say about Rob Zombie’s two “Halloween” films. The studio Blumhouse/Miramax were in development of a new Halloween film and they brought John Carpenter in to help out with the script some. John Carpenter also scored the music for the new movie as well. Carpenter didn’t like all the other Halloween movies and he wanted Michael Myers to be more frightening than the Rob Zombie version.
So this film wants to ignore everything else about Halloween (sequels/remakes) and this new film is going to be a direct sequel of the Carpenter’s 1978 original. This means that Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle is back as Michael Myers.
In this trailer, I loved how they honored Dr. Loomis by showing a drawing of him so that was a nice tribute to Donald Pleasance. Just to remind you, Donald Pleasance passed away in 1995 so obviously he won’t be able to come back, but I’m sure he gets mentioned a lot and I’m pretty sure there might be a few Dr. Loomis flashbacks from the original movie.
I’m excited for this film and I can’t wait. As long as John Carpenter was involved with this film, I’m sure it’ll be really good. Hopefully this movie does well in the box office and I’m sure it will. It could be a box office smash.
There have been a new Halloween movie in the works for a long while now. It has been announced last year by Miramax and Blumhouse studios with John Carpenter executive producing the film. The new Halloween film will not be a reboot, and it will not have anything to do with the Rob Zombie films at all. In fact, the new Halloween film will be a continuation of the original series. This will be the 9th Halloween film that will continue after Halloween: Resurrection (released in 2002). The new film will be directed by David Gordon Green. Jamie Lee Curtis is also set to reprise her role as Laurie Strode for the fifth and last time as this will be the final film of the original series.

Interesting. Wondering how this is all gonna end? Will Michael Myers finally be dead once and for all or will Laurie Strode get killed off? This is horror so anything is possible. Maybe neither one will happen, and they could come up with a different ending that will shock people.
Will the new Halloween movie use the main theme for the opening title? They probably will. I really do hope John Carpenter will score the music for the film as well ’cause that would be awesome.
I have seen all the Halloween movies, even the two Rob Zombie films he did. They can make as many Halloween films as they please but nothing will top the first one. The first one is a classic. That film I’ll never get tired of watching over and over again; although, I do think Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers would have to be the best one of the sequels.
Usually, every year, I would do a top 15 horror film list in the month of Oct., to recommend horror flicks for readers to see on Halloween. I just thought of a better plan. Instead of doing the typical yearly top 15 list, I thought I would do something different. Something a little better. I thought it would be cool to post one video a day of a favorite horror film of mine. One video a day, of a different film, leading up to Halloween Day itself on Oct. 31st.
Tonight, I’ll start off with this one, John Capenter’s “Halloween”, 1978 film with Jamie Lee Curtis. This is my favorite horror flick of all time, I watch it every year Halloween night. You learn something new every time you watch it. This film is indeed a classic. It’s definitely one of those films you can watch over and over again, and never get tired of it.
Enjoy the best scene of the whole film.
Tom Arnold said, that he and Arnold Schwarzenegger have both read the script for “True Lies 2”, and he really is dying to get it made. He hopes to re-team with Schwarzenegger again.

“True Lies”, was one of my favorite films by Arnold. That be great if they can get Jamie Lee Curtis back and maybe she can do another sexy underwear scene like you see in the pic above. Yes, Jamie Lee is aging and getting older, but she’s still good looking and pretty fit for her age. That be cool if the whole team comes back. I’m all for a “True Lies 2”!
The former Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis wrote a long insightful blog about the Miley Cyrus controversy. Jamie Lee defends Miley.

The former horror movie scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis, poses topless for AARP Magazine.
Quote from the article:
She says, “I want to be older. I actually think there’s an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older. I feel way better now than I did when I was 20. I’m stronger, I’m smarter in every way, I’m so much less crazy than I was then… Getting older means paring yourself down to an essential version of yourself.”
She also refused to dye her hair adding, “I’ve let my hair go grey. I wear only black and white. Every year, I buy three or four black dresses that I just keep in rotation.”
She’s probably one of the very few women celebrities who’s living it real.
Meaning no plastic surgery at all, no botox, etc.
Kudos to Jamie for being a real person! She’s still looking pretty fine at 50!
