McBride, David Gordon Green, Jamie Lee Curtis, and John Carpenter = fuck yeah

[–]AHH_CHARLIE_MURPHY 75 points76 points  (13 children)

The last episode of Vice Principals (and really the whole season, but especially the finale) got me really hyped for this

[–]brandonsamd6 36 points37 points  (2 children)

the penultimate episode with the fight was incredible as well.

[–]baperuth 7 points8 points  (0 children)

& Danny directed that episode! cannot wait for this!!! my most anticipated of the year

[–]slickestwood 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That fight was my TV moment of the year 2017. Just perfect.

[–]Spurrier85 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Already a classic

[–]s1me007 8 points9 points  (6 children)

I need to start this show. Is it Eastbound and Down levels of funny?

[–]hortonjmu 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It is that funny and at times funnier, but heightened/balanced with much darker situations

[–]thedonhudson01 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Yes, it really is. It’s a treasure.

[–]clutch_purse 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think it's better, personally. It's shockingly original, surprised it got made tbh.

[–]JabroniSn0w 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's awesome. Don't read anything about it or spoilers, just watch it. It's two seasons and the series finale aired a few months ago

[–]MrAwesomeMcCool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it isn't. But I still thoroughly enjoyed it still.

[–]slickestwood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It starts off a little slow, but it definitely can be.

[–]awesomeman462 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The one where Goggins smashes the planes is incredible

[–]-PetDetective- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the dark moments in Vice Principals are what make me really curious about this movie. Also he/they are very skilled in making you feel uncomfortable as well which also gives me hope that this could be something really good.

[–]riddin365 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah there's some good talent involved

I think this Halloween would be a critical and a box office hit

[–]Taclooc 86 points87 points  (42 children)

Halloween is my favorite horror movie of all time and has a truly iconic antagonist in my opinion. Everyone involved in this movie and the direction they’re going with has me incredibly excited. I can’t wait for the first teaser whenever that will be.

[–]Johnny_Mc2 17 points18 points  (8 children)

Since a remake of An American Werewolf in London is actually happening and is being made by Max Landis, I’m hoping it’s going to have an overall great team that’s passionate about it like this Halloween movie has. That movie has to retain the distinct emotional impact of the original for it to work. And no CGI. It’s Edgar Wright’s favorite movie ever, I’m seriously praying he gets attached to it. He succeeded in replicating the movie’s emotion and tone in Shaun of the Dead

[–]xfearbefore 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Max Landis rewriting his father's best film and a horror masterpiece

Please god no, leave it alone Max, please.

[–]Johnny_Mc2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah that’s the movie that has finally done it for me with being angry about a remake.. I think I understand the angry Ghostbusters fans now. It’s my favorite movie ever and it captured lightning in a bottle, I really don’t think it’d be able to be done again. Unless it was done perfectly, and Edgar Wright is the only person I can see doing it justice. He did it with Shaun of the Dead but idk. It needs to have that perfect balance of comedy, horror, and tragedy. Oscar Isaac would be perfect for the role though

[–]TooManyCookz 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Not anymore. Max is done in Hollywood for a good long while.

[–]accpi 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Why's Max done in Hollywood? I remember hearing that he sold the screenplay to Bright for 3.5 mil.

[–]TooManyCookz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Sexual assault allegations.

[–]accpi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh damn, I hadn't heard about this. I love his YouTube stuff and Dirk Gently. Hopefully he's not guilty

[–]FreeThinkingMan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I just looked into them, I couldn't find anything damning or detailed. Definitely not "done in hollywood". What have your read care to link anything? I read this and this doesn't have anything specific leveled against him from those he abused.


[–]TooManyCookz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just allegations and hearsay mostly. Though I have seen a lot of industry folk saying this is another one of those open secret type situations.

He also was not brought back for the sequel to Netflix’s BRIGHT, so it’s already affecting his career (rightly or wrongly).

[–]Emperor_Nihilist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really wish they just rebooted it entirely.

JLC didn't need to come back and we don't need to see a battle of 60 year old Laurie and Michael.

That being said, I will be a patron of this movie because I'm a slave to fandom.

[–]MaleNudity 102 points103 points  (27 children)

I love the Halloween franchise. I don't even care that they're retconning all previous retcons as long as it's not a continuation of Zombie's story. Can't wait.

[–]WaywardWriter 26 points27 points  (25 children)

1 > 2 > 4 > 3 > H20 > 5 > Zombie Remake > 6 > Zombie 2 > Resurrection

[–]PaulMeloBrook 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Halloween 3 master race because of icky creep factoe.

[–]IXI_Fans 2 points3 points  (0 children)

3 is a lot of fun.

It is not a 'Halloween' movie.

'Halloween 3' is a shitty 'Halloween' movie.

All of those statements are correct.

EDIT - I have now said 'Halloween' in my head so many times I actually had to go back up and verify that was the name of the franchise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

[–]Patio_Peter 12 points13 points  (0 children)

3 that low... absolutely disgusting

[–]ChemEcalgineer 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]therealjoshua 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Dude. Wasn't Resurrection the goofy one with Busta Rhymes ? The sheer campiness of it makes it better than either Rob Zombie one. Also 3 hardly counts and if it does , it's the absolute worst one.

[–]WaywardWriter 11 points12 points  (1 child)

3 is pretty awesome if you rewatch it. They originally wanted the series to be more of an anthology, which is why it was so different to 1 and 2. Unfortunately, audiences were so pissed about Michael not being in it that they went back to the basics for 4.

[–]g0greyhound 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Halloween as an anthology series would have been incredible. I'm always saddened when I hear how h4 came to be.

[–]Elgin_McQueen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can never forget Busta going hand to hand with Myers. It was awesome!!

[–]OfficialDatGuyisCool 10 points11 points  (5 children)

are you on ya meds m8? Robbie Zombie's Halloween 2 was the WORST.

[–]WaywardWriter 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I'd put it on the same level as Resurrection, really, but what that one did to Curtis was unforgivable

[–]Johnny_Mc2 5 points6 points  (2 children)

H2 was so bad, but I liked the first remake (Danny Trejo’s character was great in it). Rob Zombie needs to make a sequel to The Devil’s Rejects. that and House of 1000 Corpses are his best movies, he should call it To Hell and Back, have it be about Dr. Satan or something

[–]Elgin_McQueen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The new bits in that were great, the bits before he escapes. The remake section of the movie had nothing too memorable though.

[–]Dreaming_in_a_Coma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would of liked it if it wasn't supposed to be a Halloween movie.

[–]QUEST50012 0 points1 point  (5 children)

As someone who watched 4 and 5 all the time as a kid, I think you have 4 ranked too high. It does not hold up.

[–]WaywardWriter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven't watched it in a while; but if anything 4/H20 are on pretty level ground. 3 is the one I'm always indecisive on.

[–]Radaghost 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I like 4 (at least better than most of the others, which isn't saying much), but I would say 5 is the one that's ranked too high. It does nothing with the cliffhanger ending of 4 and Wendy is one of the worst characters in movie history.

[–]QUEST50012 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still enjoy 4 and 5 even though I don't think they're good movies. But 5 is definitely a lot worse. However, the worst Halloween to me is 6.

[–]WaywardWriter 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think the back half of the list is pretty level and up for grabs though, don't you think? 5 is pretty bad, but I still think it's better than Zombie, Resurrection, and 6 if only for the chase scene at the Myers household.

[–]Radaghost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like some of the stuff at the party in 5 and I always love me some Dr. Loomis.. I think I have a negative bias towards 5 because it was the only one the closest video store didn't have as a kid. I didn't see it many times growing up, so I don't have the nostalgic soft spot I do for some of the others, only my more critical adult view.

[–]Radaghost -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I don't know if this person has ever watched Halloween 5 considering how highly they've ranked it.

[–]AGnawedBone -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

That's pretty ridiculous IMO. The first remake is way better than pretty much every Halloween film after the first three. H20 was alright, and the remake sequel is easily the worst of the lot.

IMO: 1, 2, 3, remake, h20, 4, 5, 6, resurrection, remake sequel.

[–]WaywardWriter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It looks like the only thing we really disagree about is 4/5 though.

[–]xfearbefore -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

H2 is fucking great. Way better than the original remake. Brutal formula slasher mixed with touches of surrealism and actual character development. Scout and Dourif were great. I have yet to see another franchise slasher film sequel deal with the trauma of a previous films events so well, Scout is a broken mess of a person in a more believable way than I've ever seen in a film like this.

Soundtrack rules too.

[–]lukeyspesh -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Resurrection weren't that bad. It had Busta Rhymes in it.

[–]elflamingo2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They already retconned 3-6, and then rebooted it, so it will be nice to start off with a good movie as the foundation for this sequel/reboot.

[–]distephano87 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Tenth time's the charm!

[–]Made_in_Murica 34 points35 points  (10 children)

I’m absolutely amazed that Danny McBride keeps getting attached to these franchises. I’m not a fan of his acting but it’s obvious he’s passionate.

[–]nuclearbunker 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I’m not a fan of his acting

well good news because he's not acting in this, he wrote it

[–]askantik 43 points44 points  (1 child)

I’m not a fan of his acting

"Can I wear the Scream mask? The mask from Scream... while I do you from behind?"

[–]THE_reverbdeluxe 24 points25 points  (0 children)

"You look like a retarded Michael Myers. It's not a good look."

[–]JessieJ577 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I hope he plays Michael, imagine kenny powers talking shit while stabbing people.

[–]automatic_bazooti 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is totally my hat now!

[–]Wubbledaddy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's just the writer. The original Michael is back.

[–]TheBullMoose50 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He sorta reminds me of John c Reilly. But a little less talented serious acting wise.

[–]croationsensation7 2 points3 points  (2 children)

He’s just the writer

[–]FreeThinkingMan -1 points0 points  (1 child)

He is directing it as well.

[–]croationsensation7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s directed by David Gordon Green

[–]MrDirector23 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That's a sentence I never thought I'd hear

[–]riddin365 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm really looking forward to this

Right people are involved in this project and it is giving me genuine good vibes

[–]joshtm27 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Had the pleasure of meeting him when came by the bar I work at a week or so ago, before they started filming. Super friendly and personable, and took pictures with anyone who wanted them, which I found kinda funny since most or his on screen personas are the exact opposite.

[–]BenjaminTalam 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looking forward to hearing three weeks from now it's officially entered production once again.

[–]corey1031d 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Halloween is my favorite story of all time, and the fact that Rob Zombie isn't involved with this has me even more excited for it!

[–]Abramabundiz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Once i see Michael walking outta the dark and his theme song playing im going to cry of joy

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)


[–]thpearce 3 points4 points  (0 children)

username checks out.

[–]croationsensation7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A little disappointed that McBride isn’t going to be actually in the movie tho... he’s just one of the writers

[–]Singer211 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Virginia Gardner is in this, cool. She was really good in The Runaways.

Too bad that her character is almost certainly going to die though.

[–]ChemEcalgineer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As a huge fan of the halloween series, everything I've heard up to now has given me hope that this will be good. That also scares me because the idea of being hopeful for a good halloween movie goes against everything horror movies have taught me.

[–]Mrsparklee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It feels weird seeing Danny McBride's name on this, but I won't judge it til it comes out.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can’t wait to see this movie, everything they’ve revealed about it so far sounds pretty good

[–]LuciusTheKiller 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]ShotMyTatorTots 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pineapple Express Danny McBride? Looks like you got this melon farmer interested.

[–]jackbruns28 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

The franchise has been destroyed at this point. How many sequels and re-boots of the same tired concept can they keep on cranking out? The entire premise of every Halloween movie, except for Season of the Witch, has been a psychotic Michael Myers, stalking and murdering people. That's it. That's all Hollywood can do with these movies. That's all.

[–]Caleb902 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Like every other slasher of its era? They still appeal to some people.

[–]The0rangeKind -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

because you know danny mcbride's serious acting in Covenant just elevated the movie so much

[–]Singer211 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Actually yeah it did. Well in the sense that his was the only character that I gave any kind of craps about there (you can only do so much to try and elevate bad material).

Also he's not acting in this as far as we know. He just helped write it.

[–]Caleb902 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You should know what you're talking about before you speak probably. He isn't even acting in this film

[–]The0rangeKind -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Nowhere in my post did I even mention danny McBride acting in this movie. I was making a statement that he's worked in a serious film before and he still sucked
