New Halloween Kills Clips Feature Halloween, Kills

"And on the eve before Samhain it would stir, and if the lust were powerful enough, it would rise to fulfill the curse invoked so many Samhains before.

How the New ‘Halloween’ Reinvents the Slasher Movie for the 21st Century

“Adaptation.” In movies, humanity – whatever the medium – adaptation is integral to sustained longevity. Slasher films once ruled horror wavelengths from a gore-slathered throne, but have since become fossilized designs of the past. In today’s social climate, there exists less movie-watching appetites hungry for sleazy womanizing, death for death’s sake exploitation, T&A filmmaking (though not that all slice-’em-ups followed this formula). Slashers eventually died out when subgenre popularity ...

Review: David Gordon Green's 'Halloween' Deals in Tricks, Treats, and Trauma

After watching John Carpenter’s 1976 action-thriller Assault on Precinct 13 at the Milan Film Festival, film producers Irwin Yablans and Moustapha Akkad put up the $300,000 budget for the young up-and-coming filmmaker to write, direct, and score a movie about a psychopath who stalks babysitters.
