The Halloween reboot (co-written by Danny McBride from East Bound & Down and many other comedies) made bank at the box office over the weekend. Pulling in 76 million dollars in it's opening weekend. I did go see the movie and I was completely unimpressed. It took so long to get going, I think because they felt they had to tell the backstory again. It started out very slow and the rest of the movie just lacked a little something. It needed more of Michael Myers stalking, I guess. Or something. Let me put it this way, if you've seen the trailers, then you've seen the movie. I think I went in with my expectations a little too high.
Well, after the success of Halloween, another reboot is in the works. Friday the 13th. It doesn't have a script. Heck, it doesn't even have writers or a director on board. But they DO have LeBron James production company, SpringHill Entertainment on board.
Being a horror fan, I hope they reboot it completely and start from scratch. I think that's their best bet. MY only hope is that they don't try another "Freddy vs. Jason" type of movie or Jason in space or whatever. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. I think it would be great if they could get Rob Zombie on board to direct. But that's just me.
