michael myers maze

At San Diego Comic Con International 2015, Guillermo del Toro announced that there would be a Crimson Peak maze for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. It has since been revealed that Focus Features and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are teaming with Universal Studios in both Hollywood and Orlando to create all-new mazes based on the Insidious film franchise. And now Universal Studios has announced that Halloween will come home this year at HHN.

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the newest maze addition to their Halloween Horror Nights lineup, based on the cult-classic horror film franchise Halloween. The terrifying Michael Myers will scare guests at this year’s Horrow Nights.

Comes Home! Guests will have the sensation of stepping through the silver screen directly into unsettling and shocking film scenes as they navigate their way through Haddonfield, adorned in classic Halloween décor on a similar Halloween night in 1963. Meyer’s abandoned family home and its blood-splattered walls, where the violent murder took place, will set the stage for a new crime scene as guests attempt to evade the relentless killer–armed with his signature bloodstained knife.

Halloween screening audio clip

It’s been 37 years since John Carpenter‘s classic slasher Halloween sent waves through the horror genre and across the nation, scaring the living daylights out of audiences in 1978.

But what was it like to experience this film for the first time? What was it like to witness Michael Myers, or The Shape, chasing Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) through Haddonfield, Illinois before he became a horror icon? Thankfully, a vintage audio clip has surfaced online from a packed screening, and you can see how their screams, general uneasiness and suspense match up with scenes from the climax of the movie. It’s just plain fantastic.

Halloween Returns

Michael Myers is putting on the mask and picking up the knife once again as Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are working on a “recalibration” of the Halloween series. Halloween Returns is the title of the new film, which will be the eleventh overall installment in the Halloween series, and the tenth featuring killer Michael Myers.

The story reportedly centers on the grown child of a former Myers victim harboring a deep (and understandable) resentment of the killer before becoming a target of the newly-freed Myers. In addition to serving as one of the writers, Marcus Dunstan will direct. Read More »

new Halloween movie

Michael Myers never stays dead for too long, and now he’s returning to the big screen. Dimension films has revived efforts to make a new Halloween film. The first step in the process is to hire Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who together wrote several Saw movies (specifically the latter four films), to write the script for the new film. But what is this Halloween going to be? Reportedly, it will be a “recalibration,” which seems like a single-word replacement for “we’re not sure yet.” Read More »

Halloween blu-ray box set

Halloween fans and Paul Rudd completists have reason to rejoice today. September of this year will see the release of a complete Halloween blu-ray box set from Anchor Bay and Scream Factory.

For the first time ever, there will be a single box release collecting Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection, and Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II.

In this case “complete” isn’t a term being used lightly. The box will feature not only all ten major Halloween releases, but also one of the rarest items in the Halloween catalog: the “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers. This “producer’s cut” is an alternate version of the film that was also the big-screen debut of Paul Rudd, and features quite a few scenes that aren’t in the theatrical release. The movie has been the most sought-after bootleg for Halloween fans, and a legit release is something we once thought would never see the light of day. Read More »
