Once again, a new Halloween is coming our way. Thankfully it is ignoring the two train wrecks put out by Rob Zombie. It also looks like it is pretending that none of the other Halloween movies save the original happened. I can understand that (it is basically what H:20 did except that one included the second movie) but that does make me ask some questions. Laurie has been preparing for Michael's return since, well, the first movie. Why, though? This movie seems to be erasing the family connection between the two and going for the "wrong place, wrong time" angle so why would Laurie believe that she was going to a target if Michael ever escaped.

That aside, the trailer looks good. I am cautiously optimistic that this will be a good entry into the series.

I actually liked the sequel.  I thought it was pretty well done, and it did look like it happened on the same night as the original, even if it was really made about three years later.  I even get the ramped up body count since they had money from the success of the original and well, I probably would have indulged myself too.

In my canon the first two happened.  Also H20 because I liked that one.  I didn't like the one where Laurie was killed off, so I won't cry about that.  It's cool that Jamie Lee doesn't mind being a scream queen and actually embraces it.  It's her family legacy, after all. :lol:

I liked Halloween II as well. Like you said, they did a good job of making the sequel seem like it was set during the same night, instead of years later. Watching the first two Halloweens back to back makes for a fun movie experience. I wish this new one would acknowledge the sequel.

H:20 is a favorite of mine as well. I thought it was well done with some good suspense and a nice final fight between Michael and Laurie.

Yeah, the less said about Halloween: Homecoming the better.

I like Halloween 4. It brought Michael back and set the story in a new direction since Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't coming back. The sequels went off the rails with the Cult of Thorn and all the conspiracy nonsense, though.

There are so many paths to take in the franchise that fans can pretty much pick and choose what they want for their personal canon.  Because Donald Pleasance is just as integral to the franchise as Jamie Lee.  I mean. my canon is still the first two plus H20 but I've got nothing against the ones with Sam Loomis in them.  I do wonder what they were thinking when Halloween 3 was made but maybe they had just done too many drugs at that point. :lol:

^^  You mean Season of the Witch?  At that time they were planning to make a different movie every year under the Halloween banner, like an annual anthology, rather than make more and more sequels to the masked killer story.  But money talked and they listened.  :lol:

Yeah, that's the one.  Oh, I didn't know that.  Knowing that puts a different spin on things.  I would have listened to the money too. :lol:

I enjoyed Season of the Witch.  I certainly understand the appeal of a profitable franchise, but I kind of liked the idea of an annual Halloween-themed movie as well. It's too bad they couldn't have done both.

^I also liked Season of the Witch. Like you, the idea of an annual Halloween themed movie series sounds great to me. Dark Castle Entertainment did something similar in the early 2000s, when they released horror movies on a more or less yearly basis around October. I believe some of the movies were Bats, 13 Ghosts, Ghost Ship, What Lies Beneath, and Gothika.
