New ‘Halloween’ Sequel Set Up At Blumhouse, John Carpenter Executive Producing

Legends never die. After years of Dimension Films trying to figure out what to do with the Halloween franchise, the company lost the rights to the iconic horror series that started with John Carpenter‘s classic film. Out of nowhere a surprise announcement came from Blumhouse Productions revealing that they are teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween sequel. Before you get all bent out of shape about the franchise not knowing when to die, director John Carpenter will be on board the film as executive producer.

Joining John Carpenter for the tenth film in the Halloween franchise will be Malek Akkad from Trancas International and, of course, Jason Blum, the producer of The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister and The Visit.

John Carpenter’s work on Halloween has influenced horror for decades, and the filmmaker is ready to help usher in a new era for Michael Myers, “38 years after the original Halloween. I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.” It’s strange that Carpenter counts Rob Zombie’s two Halloween movies as sequels even though that was basically a franchise reboot. In reality, this will be the eighth sequel.

All these years later, Halloween is still one of the most terrifying slasher films of all time, and maybe we’ll finally get a contemporary sequel worth talking about. Halloween H20 did its best to revive the franchise (parts of it hold up, but it’s nowhere near as good as the original) and even seemed to finish it. But it was such a big hit, that one more sequel just had to be made.

Personally, I think the only good Halloween sequel is Halloween II, especially since that’s when we find out that Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is actually Michael Myers’ sister. But Jason Blum thinks they can finally create a new sequel worthy of the Halloween name that fans will love:

“‘Halloween’ is one of those milestone films that inspired everyone at our company to get into the world of scary movies. The great Malek Akkad and John Carpenter have a special place in the hearts of all genre fans and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together. We cannot wait to find and collaborate with the right filmmaker to give ‘Halloween’ fans the movie they deserve.”

The question is who that filmmaker could be. My vote goes to It Follows helmer David Robert Mitchell. His movie had plenty of influence from the original Halloween but existed in a contemporary world. He seems like the perfect person to bring Halloween back from the dead.

Blumhouse and Miramax are aiming for a 2017 release but no date has been staked out yet.

    As long as John is involved in it, then I'll most def. check for it.
    Never saw It Follows. Was that any good?

    Halloween is what the Universal Monsters was to the 60s to our generation. Freddy, Jason, Myers, Lector, Scream, they will never die. They'll always constantly be remade and so forth. They're classics. I can't even imagine Halloween TV without any of those movie reruns playing.

    Loved the rob zombie remake. Halloween 2 by zombie was a little odd, but besides the ghost mom I thought it was ok.

    Zombie makes some 🤬 up movies.

    michael myers was at peak scariness when he was jsut a blank embodiment of evil who became fixated on a random girl who delivered something to his childhood home

    nobody brother
    no instrument of an acient druid curse
    no serial killer by numbers abuse victim impoverished backround/animal abusing child backstory

    just a mindless soul less killer with very little back story

    interested to see if they go for an 80s look and feel or closer to present times

    Basically the first movie. A monster killing a girl who invaded his space. If they go back to that I'lll check it out. I've sat through everything with this franchise including the unintentionally hilarious "Love Hurts" montage and Busta Rhymes karate kicking Michael Myers. They can't get any worse.

    Halloween and 🤬 forever the GOAT slasher movies. A new movie that respects that legacy can't be bad. But if Carpenter is just cashing in again don't bother. If this works maybe he'll try his anthology horror filn series idea again so every Halloween movie is not neccessarily synonymous with Michael Myers.

    word i will probably watch regardless but it certainly looks like theyre trying to make a few bucks by attaching john carpenters name to it for marketing and hype

    from the creator of the original halloween : john carpenter presents halloween xxxxxxxx


    supposedly though mike flanagan is in talks to be the director -- thatd be an interesting choice -- he wrote an essay about his philosophy on horror in response to people demanding a backstory for the killer in one of his movies (hush) and it boiled down to usually less is more

    if you apply that to the halloween franchise it really hits (at least for me)

    evil exists because it just exists

    it cannot be explained or scrutinized

    even if you move out into the suburbs where you think you can safely raise a family

    evil will still find you

    because evil just 🤬 is

    and it will pop up anywhere at any time for no reason at all


    rob zombies halloween
    evil exists because fathers and bullies are mean

    Top 3
    Halloween 1
    Halloween 2

    Yea he's not human, in the original Dr Loomis keeps referring to him as "it". He's supposed to basically be evil with arms and legs..

    @ckfree explained perfectly why the original was goat and why rob zombies version was ass

    Co-sign on everybody that said something to the extent of evil don't need an explanation. Some people are just plain evil, 🤬 crazy, fit for a straight jacket, etc. for no reason and that is much more scary than giving them an explanation on why they are that way like Rob Zombie did.

    Yes he is human they keep bringing him back cause that's what the fans want. The original Halloween series was supposed to be a different story, different villain, different characters every movie but fans loved Michael so much they kept bringing him back. Which is why part 3 is a completely different movie, they went back to their idea but fans 🤬 and now Michael keeps returning no matter what

    Even though they planned on the halloween series to be different monsters and killers Micheal myers was not human, Loomis didn't believe him to be human and the ending confirms it

    After he gets shot 6 times and falls 2 stories he dissappears and then the camera shows all these different places in town and you can hear him breathing, meaning he (evil) is anywhere and everywhere. He Def is not human in halloween 1
