Back in 1978, a little horror film premiered that changed the horror film genre and bore the slasher film. This film was titled Halloween. Since the film's premiere, there have been many sequels and two reboot films from Rob Zombie. Well, just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Myers' home, Halloween is coming back again.
This time John Carpenter will be returning to the helm as executive producer. Back in 1978, Carpenter not only directed Halloween but he also handled the soundtrack and script. The theme music in these movies still haunts us to this day. The new film will be the 10th sequel to the franchise, this number does not include Zombie's reboots, and according to Carpenter, "I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.”
Carpenter will be joined by another original name involved in the making of Halloween, Malek Akkad. He pioneered the film with Carpenter back in the day and they are both back now to help Blumhouse Productions with the newest film. The release of the picture will still go through Miramax, who owns the rights to the Halloween franchise.
We don't have any details on the film as of yet but we're sure it will follow the continuous story of serial killer Michael Myers. We enjoy the Halloween franchise so much here at PopWrapped, that we wrote an original story around it. So, what do you think of this news? Are you excited about a new Halloween film or do you think they've done a few too many already? Sound off in the comments with your thoughts! We are pretty excited because if it is going to be as scary as they are promising, then we are in for a few nights of sleeping with the lights on.
