Danny McBride: New Halloween will bring the creep factor back to the series

The last word we brought you about Blumhouse's upcoming sequel to John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN was when we let you know that the film's shooting was being pushed back to January.

Today we have a whole new host of comments about the film via, you guessed it, co-writer Danny McBride. And God bless this man. He is really keeping us all as up to date on the film as he is allowed.

You can check out all of McBride's comments on the new film below. Here he talks a bit about bringing back the dread and the "creep factor" from Carpenter's classic. Good stuff!

Danny McBride bringing the dread back to HALLOWEEN:

The original is all about tension. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) doesn't even know that Michael Myers exists until the last minutes of the movie. So much of it you're in anticipation of what's going to happen and the dread that Carpenter spins so effortlessly in that film, I think we were really trying to get it back to that. We're trying to mine that dread. Mine that tension and not just go for gore and ultra-violence that you see some horror movies lean on. To us, it was all about bringing back the creep factor and trying to find the horror in your own backyard, in our own homes.
