New ‘Halloween’ To Ignore All Previous Movies Except Original

Halloween Banner

The latest Halloween movie has taken some interesting twists and turns since we’ve known about it. First we found out that the legendary John Carpenter himself, who directed the original and hasn’t been involved with the franchise since Halloween III: Season of the Witch over three decades ago, would be helping to create this new movie. After that came the slightly confusing, yet intriguing decision to hire David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, the duo who previously worked together on Pineapple Express, Your Highness, Eastbound & Down, and Vice Principals, to make the movie.

More recently, there was even more exciting news for fans of the franchise: Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to Haddonfield once again. And this time she’ll be joined by Judy Greer, who will be playing her daughter.

Now Carpenter himself has another interesting twist for us. He’s revealed that the newest movie will completely ignore every other entry in the franchise except the original. See what he had to say below.

Judy Greer

Reboots are just a thing we are accustomed to seeing in headlines nowadays. But some reboots catch our interest, especially when it falls into the right hands. Such as Blumhouse’s new take on Halloween.

The film will bring back Jamie Lee Curtis who made a name for herself as the ultimate scream queen in John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic slasher film. When announcing her return, Curtis said “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.” So while it is something of a reboot of the franchise, the movie is also a sequel and canon. And to make sure it is canon, the film will be adding one interesting connection.

New reports confirm that Judy Greer will be joining the cast as Karen Strode, Laurie Strode’s daughter. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Alien Covenant poster

Alien: Covenant
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: John Logan and Dante Harper
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Demián Bichir
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 122 Minutes
Release Date: May 19, 2017

The truth is that while I liked Alien: Covenant, I didn’t love it. What’s tragic, aside for the future the prequel sets humanity up for, is that all it would have taken to make the film phenomenal was some small tweaks and changes.

Alien: Covenant lacks the same emotional heights sci-fi fans associate with Ridley Scott’s film of 1979 or James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, though it’s not without merit. Chief among the complaints is that the new film seems to sit on the franchise’s laurels rather than push it forward in the way Casino Royale did for James Bond or Logan did for X-Men. It’s been 38 years since the original Alien thriller, but this movie lacks some of the lauded learnings and innovations of modern science fiction cinema.

Ridley Scott Alien Covenant panel at SXSW 2017

It seems that despite the mixed review that 2012’s Prometheus endured, nearly everyone who is a fan of Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror masterpiece Alien is cautiously excited about his new film Alien: Covenant. There were glimmers of hope in the eyes of all who attended the short panel the acclaimed director participated in today at this year’s SXSW — hope that even though the film is the umpteenth installment of the series, that it’ll be worth the ticket price when it comes out in theaters later this year.
