Trivia

Production for Halloween 3-D was shut down on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 because The Weinstein Company ran out of money. They had just received the first draft of the screenplay on Friday September 25 and shooting was supposed to start in November to end in time for Director Patrick Lussier to start shooting another film from a prior engagement in January, Drive Angry (2011) with Nicolas Cage. In May of 2014, Todd Farmer confirmed that neither he nor Lussier were involved in the project any longer. See more »

The best film with Michael Myers since the original
27 January 2019 | by ojadran4See all my reviews

The first Halloween terrified audiences when it came back, and this film has successfully done it again, in a much more modern way which fully captures the joy of any filmmaker or even any modern cinema goer.

It's a way which I didn't want to see since it was announced, but man did it beat my expectations!

The new variation of the theme music is awesome, John Carpenter serves as executive producer and Laurie's iconic hair from the original is back (!)

I swear this is one of those movies which words cannot serve justice to how great it is, and this is all coming from someone who's seen every Halloween to date. BUT, if you really want to enjoy it even more, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch the original first!!!
