COVID-19 shows Halloween’s Michael Myers who is scarier
July 8th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Halloween. [ Comments: none ]


Halloween Kills was supposed to come out this October, but Michael Myers found out that there are things that are scarier than him. That thing is COVID-19, of course. So today, John Carpenter announced today that they are postponing Halloween Kills.

We write this to you heartbroken over the fact that the delay of our film is even a discussion, but if there’s one thing that a career in the film industry has prepared us for, it is the unexpected. Over the past few weeks, our film family has looked at the forecast of theatrical exhibition with obvious concern. We have discussed and struggled with how best to present “Halloween Kills” to the loyal fans around the world, as well as the new audience we hope to invite to this experience.
It was a wild and vibrant production. We lined up a cast of legacy characters like Laurie and Tommy, Lindsey, Lonnie, Marion, Brackett and The Shape, then alongside some new faces, we aggressively made the second chapter of our “Halloween” trilogy. It unfolded into an experience that was a creative playground and we feel confident that our misfit pleasures will be seen as an unexpected entry into this franchise.
If we release it in October of this year as planned, we have to face the reality that the film would be consumed in a compromised theatrical experience. After weighing our options, we have chosen to push the film’s theatrical release by one year.
On top of a traditional release, Universal has agreed to an IMAX presentation of the film in October 2021. We are sound mixing with one of the greatest design teams that can slash, scream and creep their way under your skin. We’re going to have time to complete the film with the quality that fans deserve. And preparation on “Halloween Ends” has begun as well.
It is an honor to be working with these characters and spending time in Haddonfield. We look forward to sharing our next chapters with you.
David Gordon Green and John Carpenter

As much as we want to see what happens next in the trilogy (especially after watching that teaser trailer), I agree it might not be the best Halloween to release a Halloween movie. Next year, we will love seeing Myers torment his sister, Laurie.

Personally, I think they should release the last two Halloween movies together. Don’t make us wait another year.

Happy Halloween!
October 31st, 2019 under Halloween. [ Comments: 4 ]


Let’s be honest, the news is very scary every day of the year. However, there is one day it is not. That is Halloween. On October 31st, they have some fun. News Be Funny put together several of their greatest tricks on this day and they are all treats.

Hopefully, they gave a few ideas on how to celebrate today. I know I have some. Sadly, my television news friends did not agree with any of them. So selfish on their part.

Happy Halloween.

Jamie Lee Curtis has seen better days
October 8th, 2019 under Better Days, Halloween, Jamie Lee Curtis. [ Comments: 3 ]


James Lee Curtis shared this photo with us today and I think we can all agree that she has seen better days. Not only has she seen them, so has Lauri Strode.

I bring that up because she is back filming another Halloween movie. When the last movie left off, she and her brother Michael Myers had another one of their fights. Which is why she looks so beat up. When your brother is a psychotic serial killer and it is your mission to take him down, you are going to like crap the next day.

While Strode will be all grumpy for obvious reasons, Curtis can still manage to put a smile on her face.

Halloween Kills is out next Halloween.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space is coming to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights
July 29th, 2019 under Halloween. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1988, we became afraid to go to the circus because of the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The oversized Klowns, who are not from Earth, put their victims in cotton candy cocoons. Which sounds really sweet, until you realize that all of the victims are dead. Therefore, you cannot eat your way out of it.

Why am I telling you all of this about a movie that came out over 30 years ago? Because it is still fresh in the minds of Universal Studios. So much so, they are adding it to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights in both Orlando (September 6th) and Hollywood (September 13th).

What can you expect from the maze that has been transported from Crescent Cove and time? They say, “Guests will be lured by the sweet smell of cotton candy and ice-cream and find themselves in an otherworldly circus tent where they’ll come face-to-face with the crazed klowns and their sinister, side-splitting antics. As they make their way through the Big Top Space Ship, guests will witness diabolical klowns making cotton candy cocoons from unsuspecting victims and will realize the joke’s on them as they are next to become the gooey snack. From one shrieking klown to the next, the mazes will lead guests through the doomed community of Crescent Cove to an eerie amusement park closed for the season. Trapped in a terrifying funhouse full of killer klowns, guests will be left screaming as there’s no stopping this twisted three-ring circus.”

I don’t know about you, but this sounds like the perfect addition to their lineup. It makes you wonder why they have not been doing it all along. I mean cotton candy, popcorn and scary clowns is what the holiday is all about.

How does Grant Cramer, who played Mike Tobacco, feel about his movie coming to life? He told me, “I’d love to see Killer Klowns become a Halloween staple just like Dracula or Frankenstein or werewolves. Every Halloween I see a few more KKFOS costumes, decorations, and cool things like this. I think it’s awesome!”

It truly is awesome. If you have never seen Killer Klowns or want to watch it again, you can check it out for free on Tubi TV. It is one of the greatest horror movies ever made. There is nothing quite like it and it can never be reproduced (please Hollywood don’t try). However, it can be enjoyed by one, by all! It is just killer fun. They don’t make movies like this anymore. Yet, it is just as timeless now as it was then.

Which is why I will be walking over to Universal Hollywood (yeah I live that close) to see what they do with this, Stranger Things, Ghostbusters and The Walking Dead in September and October.

Jessica Simpson won Halloween!
November 1st, 2018 under Halloween, Jessica Simpson. [ Comments: 3 ]


Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her third child and that means her couples costumes are limited for Halloween. But she found one that worked for her and her husband, Eric Johnson. They went as Twins! You know the ones that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito played in the 1998 hilarious movie?

How did they do? You cannot even recognize her with DeVito’s hairline! Thus, she is the winner for 2018 in my book! Heidi Klum, who?
