Halloween Returns to Start Production This July

I never thought I’d be so happy about another HALLOWEEN film!! I’m one of the few individuals who enjoyed Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN remake and sequel. But I think Zombie said what he wanted to about Myers and it was time for him to move on. But recent news detailed a revival of the franchise with Marcus Dunstan not just co-writing the new film with long time partner Patrick Melton, but he’ll also be sitting in the director’s chair. Dunstan directed the super gory and fun films THE COLLECTOR and THE COLLECTION, and co-wrote, with Melton, the FEAST trilogy, parts four to seven in the SAW franchise, and PIRANHA 3DD. Dunstan is great writer who has given us so many fun horror films filled with boobs, gore, and scares. So when it was announced he was taking on HALLOWEEN RETURNS, I was stoked.


According to Variety, production on HALLOWEEN RETURNS is supposed to begin as early as July.

“Michael Myers has taken a long break from the bigscreen, and we know fans are eager to see him return,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chair of the Weinstein Company and Dimension Films. “We are excited to be back in business with Trancas and look forward to bringing one of the scariest installments of this classic franchise to audiences worldwide.”

I’ve got a good feeling about HALLOWEEN RETURNS. This won’t be a straight up reboot like Zombie’s two films, but will instead be a reintroduction to the character of Michael Myers. Let’s face it, we don’t need another remake. We all know where Myers comes from and his history. We need another HALLOWEEN remake about as much as we need another SPIDER-MAN origin story!!


We even have a plot crunch on the HALLOWEEN RETURNS IMDb page, courtesy of MovieHole:

The now 18-year-old child of one of Myers’ victims plays a central role along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter. Myers is now on death row and the two kids with their own personal vendettas against the killer sneak in to watch his execution. But when things go awry and Myers escapes, the pair, along with their friends, find themselves in the firing line.

I think we’re in good hands with this one, folks. What do you think?

Stay Bloody!!!

    I really would like to see the original first… I must have seen it in the past, i’m sure, but a long time ago. I have the second, but i don’t think that i’m gonna watch it until i have seen the first. I suggest that those Weinstein blokes put a copy of it in the blu-ray case of the new one, (and that one be better in 3D, or else…) but there will probably be a whole new shiny remastere polished, pimped up, and very expensive re-release…

    I Am So Wary Because Of All The Sequels, Prequels, Reboots, Remakes And Reinstalations But The Plot Actually Sounds Good
