Halloween 2018

This trailer starts out pretty terrible with the mental institute horror straight out of a parody, but the high concept of remaking Terminator 2 for the newest reboot of the Halloween Franchise seems pretty interesting.

Trailer kicks ass, and I kind of love how ludicrously over-the-top the mental institution sequence is. With anyone else I'd be extremely skeptical of this whole production, but it's John Carpenter, so unless he's lost a lot of his mojo over the years I'm thoroughly hyped.

With that said -- this kind of movie pretty much needs to end with Laurie perma-killing Michael (ala Halloween H20... which was almost the exact same premise, now that I think about it), but its very existence necessitates a new line of sequels, because otherwise it would never get greenlit in the first place. This places it in a very rough spot that the series has blown its ass out trying to juggle thrice before, but I'll try to maintain my optimism.

It's the trailer drums that get me. There's really no way of getting out of that buildup without completely ruining the moment. Hopefully these are just trailer things, not actually in the movie.

Also, this video and the other one about Jason are great, for anyone who wants to catch up on the halloween series. Freddie one I don't like because apparently he didn't change at all.
