Halloween trailer #2


This movie looks freaking amazing. I'm very, very, very glad to have the franchise put back on it's proper tracks. I wasn't a fan of the Rob Zombie movies and vastly prefer the first 3 movies as well as H20. I do enjoy 4-6, just not as much. 8 outright angered me and the remakes missed the mark. This returns the series to it's origins, and looking better so than how H20 did. I really like how they're skipping over all the sequels and this just resumes 40 years after the original. I do appreciate the Easter Eggs towards the other movies that I'm seeing in the trailer though. As a 40 year old franchise, there's no need to completely ignore the past 40 years, it just works better from a story telling stand point. There's been a fan theory floating around that Michael has a helper in this movie, which I don't mind. He's in his 60's. Sure, he's completely capable of moving around and doing all the stuff he does, but let's talk facts here. It was always a little bit of a reach that he was in such good shape after being an invalid for all those years, now he's been locked away for 40 years after getting the hell beat out of him at the end of the movie? Look, he's going to be feeling it. Either way, I love just how brutal this movie looks and can't wait to see it. I just hope it doesn't disappoint.
