Hey, look. Your insights are still set at the high school English class level. You get a Grape Job sticker for that.
I think that asking for a little variety from a film that took nearly thirty years to get on the big screen is pretty reasonable. When you wait that long to make a sequel/prequel, you'd think that maybe doing something a little different would be a good thing?
Guess not. But of course, horror fans have learned how to curb their expectations to zero. A decent film in this genre is automatically "great."
This could be fun, but definitely won't come close to Carpenter's film. It set the bar, wrote the book, and pushed the concept to its limit.
