Halloween Returns?

Not sure how I feel yet about the new Halloween movie news.  I am excited about getting a new Halloween movie that's not a part of the re-fake universe, but the plot description ain't exactly curling my toes either.

Here's all the news out so far on the new Halloween movie!

Halloween Returns!

Halloween Returns will be a standalone film set to reintroduce audiences to Michael Myers years after his initial rampage. It will pit a new group of Haddonfield youngsters against Myers.
The now 18-year-old child of one of Myers’ victims plays a central role along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter.
Myers is now on death row and the two kids with their own personal vendettas against the killer sneak in to watch his execution. But when things go awry and Myers escapes, the pair, along with their friends, find themselves in the firing line.
Shock has learned Halloween II’s Deputy Gary Hunt—who you may remember from the 1981 sequel as the blonde officer who accompanies Dr. Loomis to the school on the night he came home—appears in Halloween Returns, now as sheriff.
This morning news broke that casting is currently underway on the newly titled Halloween Returns, a “recalibration” of the Halloween franchise penned by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind various Saw sequels, as well as Pacific Rim, Feast, The Collector andThe Collection.

New Scream Mask

New Scream mask for the MTV series.  Rumor is they will be paying direct homage to Friday the 13th in this new series.  That's cream cheese with me.

See below for a quick shot of a mongoloid from the trailers that is supposedly one of the killers.  With Scream though, nothing is ever as it seems so we will just have to wait and find out.  I'm glad they are moving away from the characters in the movies, the last Scream was fun but it proved the old mainstays have kind of worn out their stay.  Scream as more of a homage to slasher movies in general is more keeping with the original.  The sequels began to self parody, which is the death spasms of a franchise IMO.
On a more personal front I am still planning on coming out with another fanzine.  Work is slowly coming along.  I feel like there really isn't any interest in it, so as a hobby I just kind of take my time.  Plus I took a little break from B-rated trash for a while to focus on post apocalyptic wastelander shit.  I mean, there really hasn't been a lot going on, but there is always tons of trash to delve through, I just needed to catch a breath.  You may see this blog getting more B-rated trash oriented and not just slasher focused.  I do plan on getting the fanzine itself out around October.  Will see; I'm also starting a new crazy workout regime next week because I feel like a pile of mush.  So far I definitely have enough review and art material, but I might make it a special extra sized thing that has my old reviews/art included as well.  I just want it to feel slam packed with gore and guts and all that fun stuff. I am also back on Facebook as well under my real name.  I will be checking the CC page for any messages or new fanzine requests, but you are better off messaging me directly if you want a copy, or better yet trade me something!
