    Just thought I'd point out that the official site of the remake has been up and running for a while now and they are already filming with a release date of Aug. 31st.

    I hope it doesn't suck. House of 1000 Corpses was pretty lame, but Devil's Rejects was pretty cool.

    Anyway, here's the site...

    And here's Michael Myers. At least they didn't change the look too much.

    • Danny Trejo -Ismael Cruz
    • Scout Taylor-Compton -Laurie Strode
    • Kristina Klebe -Lynda
    • Jenny Gregg Stewart -Lindsey Wallace
    • Brad Dourif -Sheriff Brackett
    • Udo Kier -Morgan Walker

    That is a pretty interesting cast. I mean you can't go wrong with Danny Trejo. I'm somewhat curious to check this out.

    So what's the plot for that one? I'm a big fan of the franchise.

    The studio wanted a complete reboot of the franchise after the horrendous last bunch of films. However, the script is supposed to be pretty lame for this remake. Myers should never talk, ever.

    Ok, I can see the point of a reboot, but making him talk?
    Did the even see the original or one of the terrible sequals (though H20 wasn't that bad)

    Myers never talked.
    He just walked around and butchered people, and when he got shot he still never uttered a peep.
    It's one of the rules.
    What's next? They give him a gun to kill people?

    Well, he was none to happy at the reception of his leaked script, but shooting began just a few short weeks after the script leaked. So I doubt it's changed.

    ....Michael talks? Oh for fuck's sake. Some things should just never happen.
    Personally, I always wanted to see the proposed Pinhead Vs Michael movie. The idea was that since Michael is basically possessed by a demon (which is why he can't die), Pinhead was after him. I forget why' it was either to join the Armies Of Hell, or because he was working against the Cenobites' mission. Either way, there was potential for some awesome stuff in that.
    Plus, it couldn't have been any worse than the last 2 Hellraiser films (which frankly felt like they were written as average horror flicks, and then someone shoehorned the Cenobites in at the last minute).

    From what I've heard the script that was leaked was not the final shooting script. Plus you have to remember that lots of changes can be made on set in the editing room. So like Megatron's head, don't assume it's final.

    That said, for those who have read the reviews, the leaked script seems to fall wide of the mark. He gets into explaining Myer's - who he is, why he is. Fans who think Myers needs to be psychoanalyzed are like Trek fans who think the show is all about the homoerotic tension between Kirk and Spock.

    This should be a lesson to whiny fanboys: Zombie is a big fan of Halloween, but that alone doesn't make him the right person to do this. What one fan thinks a franchise should be often doesn't match what everyone else thinks.

    FACT: Hollywood loves remaking John Carpenter flicks.

    So they're re-doing Halloween 1? I thought it was fine as it is... I want Jason vs Freddy vs Myers vs Ash.
