Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Myers, Halloween

A poster has been released for Blumhouse’s new Halloween movie, which features a close-up of the one and only Michael Myers.

Despite sharing a title with the original, the movie is actually a sequel, which sees Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the franchise she began her film career with back in 1978. To make things even more confusing, original director John Carpenter, who’s acting as a creative consultant on the new entry, has said that the movie is a direct sequel to the first, ignoring all of the others that followed it. But despite the confusion, it’s still a new Halloween made with some guidance by Carpenter, which is all that’s really needed to be excited.

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.

78/52 Trailer - Hitchcock's Psycho Doc

If you ever needed more proof of just how important director Alfred Hitchcock is to filmmaking and film history, somebody made an entire documentary dedicated solely to one single scene from one of his movies. It also happens to be one of the most renowned scenes ever filmed.

I’m talking of course about the shower scene from Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic, Psycho. The title of the doc, 78/52, refers to the 78 camera shots and 52 edits that went into crafting the scene. It was directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, and includes Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, Peter Bogdanovich, and others dissecting and discussing the unforgettable sequence.

A new trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below along with a previously released trailer which involves the brutal stabbing of a bunch of fruit.

Scream Queens
Episode 2.10 “Drain The Swamp”
Written by Brad Falchuk & Ian Brennan
Directed by Ian Brennan
Starring Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Kirstie Alley, Lea Michele, Taylor Lautner, John Stamos
FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, December 20th, 2016, 9pm

Scream Queens concludes its second season tonight with an appropriately titled episode, considering it’s air date is the day after the Electoral College confirmed the Trump ascendancy. There are two Green Meanies left after Wes (Oliver Hudson) was killed off last week in a vat of boiling peanut oil. That leaves Chanel-hating hospital admin Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley), and vengeance seeking baby in the belly, Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) whose mom is even crazier than him, keeping Zayday (Keke Palmer) hostage while her son murders everyone he can in the hospital. The major bone of contention is his love of Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) and whether or not he will follow through with killing her or run away with her. In other news, Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) finally admitted she’s dying of an incurable disease and Chanel (Emma Roberts) could be in line for a major gig, replacing a murdered Brooke Shields on “Loving the D”.

Spoilers for the second season finale of Scream Queens below:

FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, December 12th, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Scream Queens

You gotta love any show that names an episode “Lovin the D.” Last week, things got way too kinky as Jamie Lee Curtis directed her first episode of the show, and her Cathy Munsch quickly became the subject of a love triangle as Wes Gardner (Oliver Hudson) returned and swept her off her feet, which caused huge jealousy for Dr. Holt (John Stamos). It was later revealed that he is also one of the Green Meanie killers since his daughter Grace went nuts after season 1. He left Chamberlain (James Earl) a bloody mess. That gives us Wes, Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley), the hospital admin out for revenge against the Chanels, and Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner), the baby in the belly from the premiere as our three (so far) killers. Of course Hester Lea Michele) is still roaming the hospital and she was the killer from season 1. And technically Chanel (Emma Roberts) killed Hoffel’s sister at Kappa house… and Holt has a the hand of a serial killer… and Munsch definitely murdered her husband last season… jeez man, who isn’t a killer on this show!

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week on Scream Queens, the adorable couple of Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) and Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) tried to work through their issues so they can move forward together. Unfortunately, there’s a small problem with their relationship in that he is one of the Green Meanie killers stalking the CURE Institute. We know that hospital administrator Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley) is pulling the strings and acting as a second killer, but there may be another. The highlight of last week was Dr. Holt (John Stamos) and the ongoing battle with his own hand, which was transplanted from a serial killer as well. It’s impeding his budding romance with Chanel (Emma Roberts) and drawing him into conflict with Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis).

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week, we found out the identity of The Green Meanie… well at least one of the Meanies. Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) confessed to psycho nurse administrator Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley). She was already on her own crusade to kill the Chanels for the murder of her sister, the cook back in season 1. Meanwhile, Chanel (Emma Roberts) won the hospital blood drive and Hoffel’s trip to Blood Island and plans on consummating her relationship with Dr. Brock Holt (John Stamos) very soon. In a hilarious twist, Cascade framed Holt as the “baby in the belly”… leaving 53-year-old Stamos being accused of crimes of the 30 year old. He is of course flattered at first until he realizes they’re serious.
