But given how the movie will come out on October 22, 2022, we're cautiously optimistic that by then, people will be able to safely spend time with others without being masked up, so it's unclear how the pandemic will be presented in the flick.

Um, that's like in about a week.

Might want to check that date again.

Ah, they're talking about the last one. Nevermind.

/people will still be wearing masks

Horror franchises never end. Freddy's Dead was 30 years ago and Jason Goes to Hell was 28. Chucky just got a TV show (shocked Freddy or Jason haven't) after a reboot.

I know this TFA is about a future flick, but I'll go see Halloween Kills because why TF not - but there are way better horror films out there right now (Candyman, The Night House), and upcoming (Last Night in Soho).

Well, I guess those aren't slasher films, but I haven't seen a decent mainstream slasher film in forever, so I have my doubts.

I want another decent Hellraiser movie.

Judy Greer's costume at the Halloween Kills premier.  I got nothing else.  She's awesome.

She did a really great job in the last with her character's instant pivot from faking being terrified to being a stone cold killer with a scary cathartic gleam in her eyes as she calmly pulled the trigger.

Still haven't seen the recent Halloween movies, despite the massive horror movie marathon I've been on. Halloween Kills is up on Peacock in two days and I'm hoping they release a few of the earlier ones too for the holidays.

The Curse of/Cult of Chucky movies were surprisingly solid. Putting the protagonist in a wheelchair was a smart move to help make a doll feel somewhat threatening again. I only like/hate-watch the original movies because of how much the ads used to terrify me as a kid versus how ridiculous they turned out to be (literally gave me nightmares and I didn't even see the movies until late teens/early 20s).

I think Freddy and Jason may be welly and truly gone now though. Both of their reboots sucked and I can't see anyone (successfully) filling in Englund's shoes at this point.

Dude. The last thing I want in any movie is covid, especially a Halloween movie. Movies are supposed to take you out of reality. That's especially important when reality farking sucks.

They both did, just not recently:
Freddy's Nightmares and Friday The 13th: The Series.

Slightly OT, but I already got my ticket to see the original 1978 Halloween (which I've never seen on the big screen before) on Halloween night at the Alamo Movie Drafthouse.

So I got that going for me...which is nice.

Holding the phone vertically for a still shot is bad enough but when shooting a movie, WTF?

That movie is so watchable, and a lot of it has to do with her. I love that she's wearing a Christmas sweater at Halloween. That's just objectively funny, and on point for her character.

Freddy had a series, but not Jason. Friday the 13th: The Series had nothing to do with the movies, and only used the title as an attention getter.

No, that wasn't aimed at you, it was aimed at Ed Wood's intern there.

Freddy's show didn't have anything to do with the movies either, did it? I think Freddy was the host, sort of like Rod Serling and The Twilight Zone.

Fair enough.

I can't see Jason being interesting enough as a character to actually get a full series out of. At least Freddy and Chucky have personalities.

I wouldn't mind a Halloween series, though. Do it as a Halloween-based anthology like Carpenter originally planned to do. That could work.

Wasn't there a Scream TV show? They're really beating the hell out that franchise. The first three were pretty good. Four was stretching it, now there's a five coming and the horse has been thoughtfully killed.

Sure there are even more Halloween and Jason movies but Scream had an actual story and characters.

There was indeed a Scream TV show. MTV, I think. They just announced it's getting one more season to resolve a cliffhanger.

Yeah, wasn't Chucky a robot or something? I guess there's something to be said for doing something a little different with the reboot but that's just stupid. The first Child's Play was almost a horror movie but then they became comedies and whatever.

Oh and as a side note, come up with different names for your sequels. You see this shiat a lot not. The new Scream movie is titled....wait for it....."Scream". Which would be bad enough if it were a reboot but it's a sequel, with the same main characters and everything.

Halloween did the same thing. It's very annoying and it's weird to title a sequel as if it's a remake.

This is the first I've heard of the Child's Play reboot, which I have not seen and was not up on that streaming service. At least they ended the original series on a pretty strong note with the Curse/Cult of movies.

Actually I just happen to be on Hulu's main page now and there's an ad for it.
