Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers Ending Explained: 'Evil Dies Tonight,' In 1988

This franchise has been through a lot. For all of their talk on doing away with the lore of its sequels, the makers of "Halloween Kills" sure are digging in the crates for inspiration on the follow-up to David Gordon Green's 2018 effort, "Halloween," itself a sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 original. "Halloween" (1978) has since gotten eleven sequels and two retcons in 1998 and 2018, so there's a lot of continuity gumbo happening — it's enough to turn any new "Halloween" fan off from delving int...

Halloween Kills Producer Jason Blum On Why Sequels Are Difficult [Interview]

In 2018, Blumhouse surpassed expectations with "Halloween," David Gordon Green's sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic. Surpassing expectations wasn't anything new to Blumhouse, but the production company delivered a hit reboot that most audiences weren't expecting. Not just a hit, but more importantly, a well-liked return to the world of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. Three years later, the horror icons return in "Halloween Kills." "Halloween" is one of the bigger Blumhouse titles. ...

Halloween Kills Director David Gordon Green Made A Rock 'N' Roll Sequel [Interview]

"Halloween Kills" is a bloodbath. Director David Gordon Green's sequel turns up the gore, the comedy, and the pace in the sequel to the hit reboot, which brought Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) back. Like most sequels, "Halloween Kills" goes bigger, especially in the kills department. Not only are they nasty and impressive pieces of craftsmanship from the VFX department, but they are surprising — sometimes even shocking. Green wanted the sequel to go a little nuts, especially after earning the ...

Jason Blum Is As Upset As You No One Saw Upgrade, Offers Update On TV Adaptation

"Upgrade" is getting an upgrade. When the bonkers-in-Yonkers sci-fi action film, written and directed by Leigh Whannell, released in 2018, it received a pithy welcome at the box office, though critics like /Film's Matt Donato had a good time with it. Whannell moved onto his bombshell hit "The Invisible Man" in 2020, and now that the dust has settled on the (pardon the pun) universal fanfare and praise surrounding the resurrected Universal Monsters franchise-launcher, the writer-director has sign...

Vamp or Not? Bingo Hell

This 2021 release was directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero for the Welcome to Blumhouse movie run that the production company were doing in association with Amazon. I watched it as the trailer looked fun, not expecting to do a ‘Vamp or Not?’ – and that aspect is a bit blink and miss at that. The film is set in Oak Springs a rundown neighbourhood where businesses are selling up and people moving out. The hipsters are moving in and it is, of course, a cautionary tale about gentrification on one level –...

Probably not, but we need some sort of hope to hold onto if we're going to keep this dream alive. We've been reporting on...
