    i was at creature-corner.com and seen this posted. looks quite interesting and a good movie if it gets made as such. anyway, here's whats on the page:




    Halloween 9 will go the same way as Halloween 4 as in it doesn't negate anything in the previous movies, but It's still a completely seperate entry. No Thorn, No Laurie (although she does partly drive the story) No Busta Rhymes. The story is about Judith Myers and a secret about her. The Main Character(s) are a 16 year Old Kid called Nathan, His Mom Kathyrn, His Best Friend Ashley and The Town Sheriff.

    Basically a Movie is being shot in Haddonfield (there's always a movie nowdays in Horror Movies) about the Myers killings. The Director wants to shoot scenes and pick up shots in the Actual Haddonfield, and The Town, who don't exactly rake in much tourist dough, are convinced to allow them to shoot, for a price.

    The Myers House is back, or rather, a setof The Myers house which they have built righton Top of the ruines of The Original House.

    Expect a slightly New Look for Michael as the Mask has been redesigned for the movie with it now being white, with red streaks of Blood splatter across it. Naturally, Michael steals the New protomask and uses it in his New killing spree, but Michael now walks around the town un-noticed as everyone assumes it's just a guy from the Movie. There's also a scene where Michael comes face to face.....with Michael Myers. Poor stunt Guy!

    Turns out there's A detective in Town(basically the Loomis role) who is currently investigating the Death of one, Laurie Strode, and his search has Led him to Haddonfield and Michael Myers (due to the webcam broadcast). He butts heads with The Local Sheriff, who is currently dating Nathan's Mom (which pisses Nathan off). This is where Judith comes in as The Detective say's that he can't find anything about Judith's Mysterious trip when she was 14.

    SPOILER Basically, turns out Myers has got a New set of Relatives. Yep. Nathan is Myers Great Nephew as Judith became pregnant with His Mother, Kathyrn, but was sent out of the country so not to shame the Family with a 14 year old pregnant daughter.END SPOILER

    This is revealed when Nathan and Ashley uncover a secret wing to The Haddonfield Police station which even the Police department didn't know about. Secret Files reveal that Kathyrn (who is killed mid-way through the movie) was Myer's Niece.

    Best Thing about the screenplay is The Atmosphere of the Movie. There are a few 'Scream-esque' bits that aren't to my liking, but what sets the Movie apart (and makes it out to be like part 4,my favourite entry) Is the atmosphere of The Town when they find out Myers is actually back.

    Michael slaughters most of the Film crew (they damn well better do these fucking scenes justice because they rock), Add to the fact that Nathan is running around the Town aimless SPOILER* He finds his Mother gutted in His house and runs*END*, It's raining down a flood, they're a vigalanteegroups Hunting Myers (As well as every cop in Haddonfield)and all of The Movie sets, Props, etc are still around the Town making everyone question what is real and what is not.

    A Final confrontation happens at 'Smith Grove'and there is even a cute (but small) injoke to The Thorn Plot (Nathan has the symbol on his wrist, but everyone thinks it's a Tattoo) but it's a throw away reference and Nathan's response to wether he wants to be taken to Haddonfield Memorial after his confrontation with Myers is priceless.

    Movie Ends *SPOILER* as Nathan walks up to his bedroom, looks out the window and surveys the Dozens of Police cars and Reporters on the street, He goes to lie in his bed, turns off the light and reflected in The long Mirror beside his bed Is Myers.*END SPOILER*

    The Most amazing thing about the Halloween movie is.......it comes across as a Halloween Movie. It has a small Scream Vibe such a few in-jokes such as the Merchandising of Myers (ala The Michael Myers Home Security package), but never too much to make it Scream 4. This is going to be THE BEST sequel since Part 4.

    Hmm... something odd I caught right away. The Myers house didn't burn down in Resurrection, only the garage did.

    Oh, and wasn't there an earlier rumor concerning a 'movie-being-made' plot? This just seems like a more creative approach on it.

    I'd say this is fiction. If it isn't then ... well, at least I can put aside my suspicions of Judith being a big time promiscuous ho.

    This just seems like a collection of ripoffs from other movies, and even previous Halloween movies. The movie being shot (It didn't work out well for Scream). Michael on Michael action (They had a small scene in the last Halloween). There are a couple more in there, and Cerio is right about the Myers house not being burned down. Sounds false to me.
     
  4. I'm with HAG on this one, this just seems like a ripoff from the other "Halloween" films.

    The overall plot is very similar to "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", and the movie-within-a-movie story, is pretty similar to the previous sequel, "Halloween 8: Resurrection".

    And if the ending is true, it almost starts like "Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers" ending, in mid-way it's like the "Halloween 8" ending, and at the very end, it sounds like a replay of the dream scene in "Halloween 4" with Jamie. This time acting as the very end.

    The idea for a new family, and hopefully a story based more on the atmosphere & day of "Halloween", something that was dropped after "Halloween 6", could restore a vibe to the "Halloween" series, that fans have longed to be restored. However, after the "Halloween II" ripoff ending of "Halloween 8", I doubt fans are going to really love a combo-ripoff of "Halloween 4, 6, & 8", with a "Scream"-esque hint. That formula = fucking sucks.

    Like with the throwback to Thorn in "Halloween 5 & 6", with the kid having a tattoo of Thorn, but it's just a tattoo, not an ancient druid curse. WTF?!??! If the kid has Thorn on his wrist, use it for the story. Don't just throw it away. Plus it's going to confuse casual fans. Fans that have watched all the films, and who've forgotton about Thorn, are going to be confused if they see this kid with the symbol again in "Halloween" movie, and it's basically ignored. It'll be a head scratcher for most.

    So far, it sounds somewhat better than "H8", but it really just sounds like a combo of previous sequels, for an overall new film.

    I'm such a Halloween whore that I'd go for it. Can't say I was expecting much in the way of originality to be honest. The script could read: "Michael goes to this place and kills people" and I'd like it :D
     
  6. I second that!

    Me too. That is all I need. Well, that and this key bit, "No Busta Rhymes." Count me in! :banana:
     
  8. Yeah, but the "Halloween" films always took themselves seriously. Now they aren't original, just ripoffs of "Friday The 13th" films.

    Sure Michael Myers & "Halloween" came first, but when the original starts copying the copycat ... that's desperation.

    Just having Michael go around and kill people for no reason, is pointless. It was something, that the "Halloween" series was always above the rest about. It was more than just another killer in a mask.

    How is Halloween copying Friday? I'm a bit confused, and would be interested to know. The plot above continues the story (which is not to say it's all that inventive), yet has more bodies.

    As a fan of the series, I can't say that I've paid close attention to the "story" within each film. Some are good, others are wafer thin and honestly, the film works better without it :D

    Really though, this is a slasher, not a thinking mans film. I don't own all the Friday films, just don't like them as much, but Halloween rules :)

    So, are we back on track with my: "Michael goes to this place and kills people" plot line then? If so, do I get a share of royalties from the film? Or is my idea too derivative of Rambo? :D
     
  12. I wasn't referring to this particular film idea. I was referring to some of the above posters saying they just want a film with Michael killing people, and that's it.

    To me, that's exactly what's wrong with the series right now. They need to be more inventive. Instead, Michael's been whored out as just another slasher in a mask. That's how (in that scenario), it becomes a cheap "Friday The 13th" flick.

    I reckon the biggest problem with Halloween, and it's been true all along, is the lack of decent gore. Yeah, I know the reasons why it's not there, but I think it's a shame. To make a Michael we can be proud of today, he's got to be a mean mofo, I want a hacking slashing - lingering, Michael.

    Frankly, the twists and turns of the story have been a bit........ lame. It does have a back story that seperates it from Friday, but honestly, it's nothing to write home about, imo.

    well the producers and curse of michael myers explain how he was selected and why he comes back
     
  17. Yeah Thorn & Samhain had their flaws, but they made alot more sense & took a much better route, than what "H2O" & "Resurrection" took.

    Sure at the time (1995), the route that had been taken by "Halloween 6" seem weak & lame, but in hind-sight, if we could've predicted what "Resurrection" was like, I think most would've wanted to keep Thorn intact.

    I *liked* the Resurrection story. The only problem, and for sure it's an almost fatal one, was in the casting.

    I can verify that script is a fake, here's the teaser poster art for the REAL upcoming Halloween flick.

    Please, please, PLEASE tell me that the "outerworld" poster is a joke. I can't think of any possible worse idea than sending Michael into space. Does nobody remember the atrocity that was JasonX? A joke, it has to be a joke......................
