    Okay. Ed Gein only killed two people in a small rural town, and he was the inspiration for Norman Bates, Leatherface, and Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. It tells you that the circumstances are more significant than the number of kills.

    For me personally, I think it's too soon after the Rob Zombie films to go right back into the rotted look. I was hoping for a fresh white mask.

    He also killed her sister as a kid in a Halloween night, repetition and shock of his crimes should add to his mythos.

    I hear you but if you are going with the true crime spin, it makes sense. He's captured right after Halloween 1 and the mask was locked up in the evidence room for 40 years. When Michael escapes, he gets his mask back. Carpenter said that the mask is basically Michael's face and it's everything to him. In the first movie, it gets pulled off briefly and he scrambles to put it back on instead of not caring and continuing going after Laurie.

    It kinda sucks that Rob had the rotted idea first or else this would have been really cool and unique.

    Looks good, but... Why a direct sequel to part one? Why not retcon the ending to part two and do another direct sequel to that?

    Judy Greer does something for me. Don't know why or what...but she does it. So, shockingly, I'll go with the daughter.

    They wanted to get rid of the brother/sister storyline that was revealed in the second film. So in order to do that they just went back to H1 and continued on directly from there.

    They said the sister angle ruined Michael to them. Michael's goal was basically to murder all of his family at that point and anyone that got in his way. That made him less scary.

    With Halloween 1, he specifically went after Laurie and was driven to kill her with no real explanation. If he could do that to anyone, that makes him more scary. The less you know the better with Michael.

    Yes. Man, this is why Halloween is my favorite part of the year. I've literally almost caused my wife to divorce me because of how frequently I say "man, I can't wait for the Halloween!" lol

    I have to admit that pretending that H2 didn't happen is really lame and may make me reconsider seeing this. H2 is a classic slasher film worthy of being acknowledged.

    I agree that Halloween 2 is great, but I don't think that it being retconned should deter you. This could end up being just as good as H2.

    Agreed. Halloween II (1981) was a very good sequel.

    She's banging on the door, then turns her head to the right to look behind her. But when the camera cuts to her back, it shows her turning her head to the left.

    Hopefully this is just the way the trailer is cut.

    The same goes with any horror villain.

    'Hannibal Rising' destroyed all mystique Hannibal Lecter had.

    Keep all motivations minimal.

    It was a smart decision to keep Jason's, of the F13 series, simple - he wanted to kill teenage camp counclours because their neglect led him to be drowned. It's never gone beyond that. No mystical force consumed him, he's not the devil incarnate, and his mother wasn't a witch that cast a spell that he'd be resurrected to kill for Satan.

    They didn't attempt to ever make Jason any more complicated, because that's not scary.

    Michael would've been blind as well if they had decided to include Halloween 2 with the way it ended. Michael with a seeing eye dog just doesn't do it for me.
