These days if the Hollywood bigwigs aren't remaking something, they're tacking on more sequels to an existing franchise. Franchises are getting reboots and TV shows are being brought back to life with all new casts. Sometimes it can be a good thing (Star Trek
) but certain ideas probably should have been killed (cough! 90210
cough!). So, instead of lamenting remake or reboot ideas right off the bat, I thought I'd put it to a vote.
Last year Rob Zombie released his remake/reimagining of John Carpenter's 1978 movie Halloween, which itself had spawned a whole line of sequels. This Friday we'll see another Rob Zombie remake, this time of the original first sequel to Halloween (got all that?). The 1978 movie is probably my favorite scary film to watch on Halloween itself but I'm not a fan of Zombie's remake, and I'm not so sure we needed a remake of a sequel to Halloween.
What do you think? Are you still interested in the Michael Myers character? Or should we finally lay this slasher film series to rest?
