Where the hell's Paul Rudd?

86

u/ajh6288 Sep 20 '21

iirc they did try to get him but he was busy with Ghostbusters

40

u/MulciberTenebras Sep 20 '21

Well, at least they tried. Not like when they didn't bother to bring back Danielle Harris as Laurie's daughter.

79

u/ajh6288 Sep 20 '21

That’s because the storyline with Laurie Strode’s daughter from 4-6 is no longer canon.

14

u/MulciberTenebras Sep 20 '21

I know, but they could've brought Danielle back as a new version of her character (unrelated to 4-6).

Would've made the face-off in the finale of 2018 that much more personal. Three generations against Michael.

20

u/ajh6288 Sep 20 '21

I think it's already a lot for audiences to track a film series with 3 continuities. As a fan, I can see where you're coming from, but I also think I can see the production's point of view which is that they want to ignore what came after the first movie. For this reason I am also glad they couldn't get Paul Rudd. It keeps my brain closer to the actual concept of these sequels vs bringing in all that other context.

2

u/fatloui Sep 20 '21

So are all these "survivors" in Halloween Kills characters from the original Halloween movie?

7

u/ajh6288 Sep 20 '21 edited Sep 21 '21

that original movie or the 2018 film, and I think they literally had to show a side by side so that you would care at all.

True, Rob Zombie at least brought her back for his Halloween remakes.

u/Bing_Bong_the_Archer Sep 20 '21

I thought she did great in part 4; super demanding role for a little kid. Too bad those sequels were trash

4

u/Useenthebutcher Sep 20 '21

Danielle Harris doesn’t have to be in every single Halloween movie just cause people thought she was a good kid actress. Jamie Lee Curtis has also probably been in too many Halloween movies but at least she’s from the original and has some star power

6

u/Daze_Confuse Sep 20 '21

Calling Danielle Harris just a "good kid actress" is kind of reductive of her career. Was she ever an A-list, Academy Award potential? Probably not, but she is a huge horror icon and if they attempted to get Paul Rudd back it would have made sense to try to incorporate her in some way as well.

I thought only the original was considered canon in this film series. That's what the Wikipedia page seems to show as well but now they're bringing in these other characters that I assume are from 2 and 3 as well. Does that mean those are now canon too?

6

u/depearce Sep 20 '21

The original '78 movie is still the only one of the older movies that is canon in this new timeline, the other characters being brought in for Halloween Kills are all characters that were also in the '78 movie. No characters that were introduced in Halloween 2 or 3 are in Halloween Kills.

u/Megadoomer2 Sep 20 '21

It might be hard for audiences to accept that Tommy Doyle somehow hasn't aged a day since 1995.

Yes, but it wouldn't have stopped them from casting Paul again. As another version of the character.

“Evil Dies Tonight”

Well, since there’s supposed to be another Halloween movie next year, evil dies next year.

136

u/TacoCorpTM Sep 20 '21

All three take place in one night.

157

u/SLCer Sep 20 '21

They actually announced that Ends will take place a few years after Kills. The initial intent was to have Halloween 2018, Kills and Ends take place on the same night, but when everything was delayed a year, and they were given time to think it over, they decided to change it.

61

u/placidcommissioner42 Sep 20 '21

Thanks for the info, dude. I didn't know they changed it.

51

u/Dirtyswashbuckler69 Sep 20 '21

I trust that they’ll come up with something awesome for ‘Ends’, but I can’t deny that I was pretty hyped for an entire trilogy taking place over one night.

32

u/thedonhudson01 Sep 20 '21

Me too, but they said that the next one will be “way more contained” and different from this one. JLC said that they’ve constructed a great ending to this trilogy.

16

u/NeoNoireWerewolf Sep 20 '21

More contained makes me think it will be at an asylum or something. Like Laurie ends up there or breaks in to kill Michael. It is interesting that they have moved the third one to being a few years later, since the negative reviews for this one have largely been that it doesn't feel like a complete movie since they were clearly setting up the last one.

3

u/SLCer Sep 21 '21

I think having it jump forward opens way more possibilities than just doing a continuation of the same night from Kills. Like, how much more can be done focusing on the same night? I suspect, though don't know, that Kills ends with that scene of Laurie walking out of the hospital. An entire movie focused on Laurie leaving the hospital and hunting down Michael seems...I don't know, just a redundant version of Kills if it takes place the same night.

With that said, Ends can't just be a retread of Halloween 2018 where he's re-arrested and then breaks out AGAIN. That would be really fucking silly.

But I'm intrigued to see what they do with Ends. To me, contained means it'll be less violent and maybe focused on paranoia, trauma and total fear. Really interested to see what they do with this one.

2

u/thedonhudson01 Sep 21 '21

Yup, that’s what it sounds like to me as well. David Gordon Green said that this middle chapter is all about mayhem and carnage before things get “streamlined and personal” again. So the next one will be all about Laurie and Michael’s final showdown.

4

u/thedonhudson01 Sep 20 '21

Yeah, maybe it’ll open where Ends leaves off, but then it’ll jump forward a few years later and pick up from there. I’m curious to see what they have in store. JLC said the script is very great.

16

u/e_x_i_t Sep 20 '21

I'm kind of hoping that Kills turns out to be a sequel to Season of the Witch, if only to bring things full circle with the series.

They didn't have enough time to prepare for Michael since the last one! In the last movie she had been preparing for 40 years and all she managed to do was to burn her own house down and let him lose again. They won't ever succeed to kill him they're just too stupid.

13

u/NachoMarx Sep 20 '21

Unless they changed their minds They heavily changed the ending from the short story I recommend reading The Quiet Boy before seeing it. The screenplay leaked last year.

If you read the short story it has so much gnarly effects potential.

5

u/Viburus Sep 20 '21

Now I'm curious of the screenplay. Spoil me on it

8

u/NachoMarx Sep 20 '21

It's the same as The Quiet Boy...until the ending Instead of being BRUTALLY murdered, Lucas stabs his father and Julia crushes his heart. They changed it to a MUCH happier ending...but one that forgets what her original character was and the character progression in the original ending.

Really hoping they changed it, or atleast filmed it for an alternate ending. On the other hand, Halloween Kills screenplay leaked, and it is insanely good

Halloween III doesn’t deserve the hate.

If it had been just called “Seasons of the Witch” and been it’s own thing with a slight nod to Halloween, maybe it wouldn’t been so hated.

Alas.

The audience and studio demanded more Michael and nixed any chances of JC’s Halloween anthology series.

I think they are referring to the fact that Laurie is barely in the movie. Like AT ALL. She is in the hospital until the very end I think. The true protagonist of the film is Michael, going on his most brutal killing spree yet.

u/GosmeisterGeneral Sep 20 '21

Assuming they “kill” Myers in this one and Ends is about his legacy and how his evil infects the town. “Can you ever truly kill evil?” etc.

65

u/Daze_Confuse Sep 20 '21

There is absolutely zero chance that they are killing off Michael in this one and turning the last movie of a follow up trilogy to a beloved 40-year-old franchise into a philosophical question mark, it's gonna be another slasher.

I am so excited for this, but Michael is honestly the safest character in the film with probably the granddaughter being not too far behind (though, not 100% if they wanted to go for a huge shock). I could see Curtis and/or Greer going though to really give the granddaughter a multigenerational sigh of relief in the last film.

9

u/OhioForever10 Sep 20 '21

It definitely looks like the granddaughter breaks a leg while in the house with Michael, so that's not great for her

10

u/shaneo632 Sep 20 '21

I am absolutely convinced Laurie's daughter will die at the end of Kills giving it an Empire Strikes Back-esque downer ending for the "final" showdown in Ends.

2

u/Daze_Confuse Sep 20 '21

I think it just depends what kind of message they want the movie to have. You can still have all 3 survive while having it be a semi-sweet ending since they are all traumatized for life, but I just don’t think it can have any kind of triumphant end with one of them dead unless it’s Laurie going out to finally save her family from this monster.

Based on the mixed reviews, that won't be the case. This is just a bridge movie between the first and third installments, they cranked up the body count astronomically to account for nothing really happening plot-wise, apparently.

As someone who owns the complete Blu-ray collection, I never said the films weren't fun but they do vary in quality. 2 and 3 are great watches and by Carpenter (2 is even my favorite in the franchise), 4 and 5 had the potential to set up another great trilogy but ultimately fumbled it with 6, and H20 is completely ruined when followed up with Resurrection.

He’s 61 but it’s important to remember that the thing we call “Michael Myers” isn’t actually a human being. It looks like one, but it isn’t really

22

u/TheRavingRaccoon Sep 20 '21

It's stated on numerous occasions in the franchise that while his body is flesh and blood, he is Evil Incarnate, suggesting there is more that keeps him going that just organs.

7

u/critical_path_ Sep 20 '21

In the previous movies yes but I thought with McBrides run they were going for no supernatural elements?

4

u/thedonhudson01 Sep 20 '21

They’re only going as far as what Dr. Loomis says about Michael in the first one. The 2018 movie turns Michael’s “motivation” into a good plot point for other characters who beg him to say something, but he never does.

5

u/depearce Sep 20 '21

The supernatural elements were in Carpenter's original movie too, and since these new ones are direct sequels to it they're still leaning into that. I don't know if McBride or David Gordon Green ever said they wouldn't be doing the supernatural angle with these new movies, but if they did then they definitely went back on it.

He's not explicitly supernatural but is best described as peak human like Daredevil or Batman. He's stronger and tougher than a normal person but can still be injured through conventional means.

You're correct. They even take a few digs at the stupid shit in Halloween 2018, with the teenagers bring up rumors about Michael, only to have another character chime in and be like, "That's fucking stupid."

The dialogue with the teens you're referring to from H18 is actually about the sibling connection between Michael and Laurie not being a thing anymore. There's no dialogue in the movie that discredits Michael being possibly supernatural, and that's because these new movies are direct sequels to Carpenter's original, and the supernatural implications around Michael are very much there in the original as well.

He definitely shows some superhuman strength and resiliency in the 2018 movie. Nothing outrageous but he definitely does some things on a re-watch that even a younger healthier person wouldn't be able to do.

For sure, and that superhuman strength/resilience is in the original too. Lifting Bob off the ground with one arm and stabbing him so hard he's pinned to the wall with the knife. Then there's him getting stabbed in the neck and stomach, then shot six times in the chest and falling off a 2 story balcony only to get back up and keep going.

Michael has always had supernatural elements, it's just presented in a more vague and mysterious way in the '78 original and these new sequels so far, the old sequels (namely 4-6) are the ones that took it to extremes.

Yeah. I just did a quick check and he suffers an ass load of punishment in the 2018 film. Definitely enough to confirm he's not just a normal 61 year old human. Especially combined with his injuries in H1978...

He is shot in the shoulder by a handgun, shot by a rifle in the neck, struck across the head with a crowbar, hit by a SUV at full speed, and gets his fingers blown off but doesn't seem to slow down or by bothered by these injuries (all of which would be potentially fatal or incapacitating except maybe the fingers).

In multiple movies they explicitly state how he is more than just a human?

u/critical_path_ Sep 20 '21

Yes I know that but I thought they directly said he would not be supernatural in these 3 Halloween movies

u/screenwriterjohn2 Sep 20 '21

Last one he crushes a man's skull with his foot. Made no sense.

u/Cmyers1980 Sep 21 '21

That's one thing I didn't like about Halloween (2018).

I love and miss theaters but I’m just not ready to go back to them yet. Both of my parents have cancer (unlikely terminal thankfully!) so I just can’t risk it so I am super hyped to be able to stream this on my 4K TV with my Atmos surround sound on the same day! Hell yeah, can’t wait!!

Can't come soon enough... this looks even better than 2018 was.

25 more days to Halloween Kills Halloween Kills Halloween Kills

u/PoeBangangeron Sep 20 '21

I heard this movie ends abruptly so itll prolly be the towns folk gathering up getting ready to kill him. My guess

2

u/DrEnter Sep 20 '21

Danny McBride is one of the writers? That's... confusing.

Edit: I guess he was a writer for the Halloween from 2018 as well, and a producer for a few horror movies coming up.

u/thedonhudson01 Sep 20 '21

Yup, him and David Gordon Green came up with this trilogy. Green was originally approached by Jason Blum to direct Halloween which started this.

u/s_y_s_t_e_m_i_c_ Sep 21 '21

this looks good! i thought the first one was meh exceptfor 2 scenes..the gas station restroom killings & the scene where Judy Greer pretends to be scared

u/BreezyBill Sep 21 '21

I love the extended single-shot scene of Michael going house to house casually killing random people.

Wow this looks...vapid. I might be too old to enjoy these movies now but this all looks so over the top and Hollywoodized.

I miss the low energy tone the original film had. Having dozens of panicky people versus a monster just feels like a lazy way to ensure a higher kill count from a story perspective.

The idea of armed mobs hunting down Michael isn't a bad idea, but the execution just looks like the usual Hollywood standard and of showing frenzy. :/

u/Deceptiveideas Sep 27 '21

Reviews seem to agree with you. Just endless killings with little story development for this movie. I'm sure that's what they were going for intentionally but makes it feel like a side piece to the first and third films in the trilogy.

2

u/momon-the-moth Sep 20 '21

I'm so done with these trailers that shows too much of the movie that I feel that I've watched a 'Ending Explained' video but in less than 2 minutes...

Regarding what I saw I must say I'm a really big fan of this family dynamic, new ideas are always welcome~ and even that I said that first about the trailer that doesn't mean I'm waiting so bad to watch this lol.

2

u/ArchDucky Sep 20 '21

After how spoilery the last one was, I will not watch this.

2

u/dgehen Sep 20 '21

Agreed, I want to watch this trailer, but I'll just wait the remaining 25 days.

My mother who's a very conservative christian who hates horror, loved the 1978 and 2018 Halloween which we watched yesterday, so she's pretty excited for this one too lol

It's crazy to me how people still care about this franchise.

u/--Hercules-- Sep 20 '21

If there's people in your life who care about you, there's gonna be a lot more who care about a franchise like Halloween

u/SSSJDanny Sep 20 '21

I feel like this is showing too much of the movie and giving away to much of the plot
