He's coming back home to Halloween as executive producer for the next film in the series. I have no doubt he's only putting his name on it for the cash but he's sounding like he's going to have an active role: “38 years after the original Halloween. I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.” Carpenter stated.

Halloween is probably my favorite horror movie. I've watched that movie so many times. I don't know why i like it so much but it's probably down to the atmosphere of the film. Just so damn creepy and that music...

 

I think it also helps that the michael myers doesn't speak and we don't see his face. Most horror movie are ruined when the character shows his face and starts talking.

I know you see his face but it's for a couple seconds and shows that this killer is actually just human and gives the impression he can be killed.

 

I kinda think they ruin that with him falling of the balcony and dissappearing but it leaves the film ending on the fact he is still out there.

 

The other films just turned him into a indestructible monster.

If you read what Carpenter says about him, the sequels were sort of right. Taken from the wiki, "John Carpenter has described the character as "almost a supernatural force - a force of nature. An evil force that's loose, a force that is 'unkillable'".

 

The face reveal has been lightened a lot in that photo - the droopy eye was supposed to indicate the injury he'd got from the coat hanger in the closet scene, but it never really looked right. Doesn't look fresh enough.

 

Great movie though - I await the new one with great interest now Carpenter's involved.

I just watched Escape From LA for the first time ever (I know, right!). I actually loved it, which I totally didn't expect. Sure, it has extremely dated special effects and is cheesy as fuck, but it's flaws are basically the flaws of the original. It's from the school of sequels where it's just a retread of the original, but they feel of a piece, even if it's a piece of b movie pop trash.
