Is Horror Dead?

Is horror dead?

This has bothered me for a while now. I love the horror genre but I find it lacking on creativity and freshness as of late.

I can’t be the only one that thinks the horror genre is pretty much dead. Was dying in the 70s, John Carpenter brought it back with Halloween. Which is one of my favorite movies, not just in horror. In the 90s, horror was just about dead again. It needed something. A man by the name of Wes Craven came along with Scream and horror was back.

Scream had a lot of success. And gave other horror films after that success as well. But that was 16 years ago.  And Hollywood has given up on original ideas. Sequels and remakes are all that get the green light. That needs to stop. And straight-to-DVD needs to stop. Theatrical horror needs to come back and fast.

New slasher icons for the younger generation. Not just dusting off classic faces. Leave our loved killers alone. They had a good run. Several runs in fact. And yes, I love those classic icons. But you can’t learn to really cherish them if they’re never gone.

Sorry for this random post. I just feel like it needed to be said.

We need something badly.

Halloween 3D for 2012

Posted in Movie News with tags , , , , , , , on June 23, 2011 by crow237

Dimension Films has announced that fans of Michael Myers should put a big red circle around October 26, 2012 on their calendars.

That’s when the company is expected to release Halloween 3D.

Of course, at this time, we have no clue who is directing or which script they are going with. Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer penned a draft which picks up after the events of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II. The story concerns Laurie Strode in a mental hospital and there’s a part for Tom Atkins to co-star.

After the events of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, the mask is pretty much destroyed.

Will the plain white mask return in H3D?
