Halloween 3D in 2010

08.31.2009

DVD Cover for the original HALLOWEEN 3

Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN II might not have made the critics jump very high, nor the box-office for that matter, but the Weinsteins still see dollar signs with that franchise, especially considering the actual week-end winner THE FINAL DESTINATION.

According to LA Times, Bob and Harvey aren't even waiting for a complete post-mortem on the movie to launch work on a third HALLOWEEN with two major changes: Rob Zombie won't be involved, and it'll be in 3D. I wonder which is LESS surprising. Oh, and it'll be released less than a year from now... If THAT works, like it currently does for SAW, well... Don't be surprise to get a new one every August for the next 5 years at least. Yay! *cough*

The studio revealed they're in active negotiation with a new "experienced" director -they won't say who- with a "different take" on the franchise. Why do I smell the word reboot looming nearby? Or is it SEASON OF THE WITCH all over again?!?

A third film is thus pretty much inevitable, but a lame director is not. YET. So who SHOULD it be? I got my money on Alexandre Aja.

Extra Tidbit: SEASON OF THE WITCH is the only original Halloween film I watched entirely, and I kinda liked it. Am I the only one?

Season of the Witch was a great B movie, fond memories of watching it on AMC during their halloween marathons, halloween is just in the air when I watch that movie. Who knows about, this, I don't care I don't like this new reboot, this post is pointless.

Your not the only one. Season of the Witch gets so much bad rep because it bares the Halloween title, but lacks an physical incarnation of the Myers character. If it was simply titled Season of the Witch I guarantee it would have received a lot more attention.

Dear God, can we just let this 'reimagining' die?!? I swear this crappy 'reimagined' franchise won't die just like it's titular character.

Not a remake of Season of the Witch

Also, the Weinsteins specifically said this film would follow Zombie's story so it won't be a remake of the original Halloween 3 like some are assuming.

Alexandre Aja all the way

I saw H2 this weekend and enjoyed it more than any Halloween movie since part 4. Maybe I'm a little biased since i'm in the Phantom Jam scene. Seems like Alexandre Aja is the man for the job, being that he's "experienced" in both horror and 3-D and is currently wrapping up filming on Piranha 3-D for Dimension. I wish they'd just let someone take their time and make a great movie instead of saying it's coming out in 2010 come hell or high water and giving directors little or no time to put the

I wish they'd just let someone take their time and make a great movie instead of saying it's coming out in 2010 come hell or high water and giving directors little or no time to put the thing together properly. I'm hoping the Director's cut of H2 won't feel so thrown together at the last minute.

Didn't necessarily like Season of the Witch, but there were some pretty cool scenes there. The kid in the hospital with the razor in his mouth was awesome.

I am a huge fan of the Halloween reboot by Zombie. But hearing that the 'studio' wants a third really pisses me off. Zombie stated that this was his conclusion to Michael Myers, and H2 was his own original take to finish that up. ( His take on H1 was fantastic, I thought; and I've hated all of Zombies other movies)

I just hope Zombie doesn't produce this like other directors do, and whore out their baby for 5$ a head for a quick buck.

Remakes Bah-Humbug!

I enjoy the original Halloween 3 I mean the story is kinda silly,but it's got great character actor Tom Atkins(that's why god made fathers,babe)..plus a kid's head turns into a pile of bugs and that's always a pleasure to watch ah the 80's where they didn't care if a freakin' kid died horribly.

So this time around will we see finally have a Halloween in outer space?

I know when they originally did Season of the Witch it was because they wanted a new Halloween movie every Halloween (kind of like what Saw does now) but felt at the time that Carpenter had wrapped up the Michael Myers story. Hence Season of the Witch. Wouldn't be a far shot to say they're probably thinking the same thing again...

Sounds sweet! Glad I'm not the only one who loved Season of The Witch. It does have alot of potential but they need to space out the scares if they remake H3. It seemed like most of the scary stuff was at the end of the film.

I'm hip to the 3D format but Halloween supplies nothing that would be enhanced by it. It would be filled with 3D gimmicks. Unless they took the high road and applied it to the atmosphere(My Bloody Valentine)...they would also need a decent script which probably won't happen.
