There Can Be No Halloween Without Michael Myers!

Now what kind of Halloween blogger would I be if I didn’t mention what movie is being released today?  Yes, I’m talking about HALLOWEEN! 

Acclaimed filmmaker Rob Zombie has come out with an entirely new take on the highly successful and terrifying Halloween legacy that began in 1978.  He assures fans that his vision is not a copy cat of the original John Carpenter’s smash cult, but will give a different take on the Michael Myers legend.  The film will both surprise classic and modern horror fans with a departure from prior films in the Halloween series.  They should brace themselves for unprecedented fear as Zombie turns back time to uncover the making of pathologically disturbed, even cursed child named Michael Myers. 

Just the playing of the theme song for Halloween - the piano notes - gives me the creeps.  We have it on our Halloween music CD that we play every year on Halloween night.  That music seems to scare a lot of people!  Is there anyone who has not seen at least one Halloween movie?  I remember going to the theater with my friends to see the original Halloween 19 years ago and to this day, that movie still scares me!  Now that was a real horror movie - the kind of slasher film where everybody in the theater screams, even the guys.  Jamie Lee Curtis did an excellent job playing Laurie Strode, the babysitter that Michael Myers tries to kill.  There wasn’t a person in the audience that wasn’t routing for her by the time the movie ended.
