The eleventh installment of everyone’s favorite slasher franchise returns with the unimaginative title: “Halloween Returns.”
Written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan penning the script—the team behind the various Saw films as well as the Collector, the Collection, and Feast. According to horror-hub, Bloody Disgusting, Marcus Dunstan is set to direct.
Plot details emerged through MovieHole, though there is no telling the accuracy, but they are as follows:
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.
Though no solid details as to which timeline the film is set (that of John Carpenters or Rob Zombies), the studio is not considering the film a remake or a re-boot, but rather a “recalibration”
Production is slated to begin this July.
Eli Roth’s jungle cannibal flick, Green Inferno appears to be in official limbo, it’s studio (World View Entertainment) pulling it prior to its September 5th, 2014 release. While I have never been much of a fan for Roth’s films, his contributions to the extreme horror genre have been nothing less then generous, ushering sex, blood, and gore to the mainstream masses. And strange enough, mainstream America seems to welcome it with open arms.
Green Inferno looked different. It looked good. Now as it were, we have to wait. This is Hollywood, so it’s not a matter of if it will be released. It’s a matter of when.
In the mean time, the trailer hit for Roth’s next picture, “Knock Knock” staring Keanu Reeves hit a few days ago. Watch the trailer below. I’m still on the fence, but I’ll watch with baited breath, but in the meantime it looks like there’s no one home.
