Nick Castle on Returning as Michael Myers in ‘Halloween’ and If He’s Down for Another Cameo

The phrase "horror icon" gets thrown around a lot, but when you're talking about Michael Myers, the label fits. The slasher villain has carved his way through cinematic nightmares for the last forty years, ever since John Carpenter's seminal 1978 horror classic Halloween. He's seen sequels, reboots and remakes aplenty, and the beloved character was just reborn once again in David Gordon Green's 2018 sequel and to do it right, Green and the folks at Blumhouse recruited original actor Nick Castle to get back behind the mask for a cameo. While stuntman James Jude Courtney does …

Review: Halloween

  • Comicmix
In 1980, I joined Fangoria just as the horror genre was switching from the supernatural to the slasher. I had missed John Carpenter’s Halloween, the granddaddy of them all, only catching it later as I prepared to interview P.J. Soles, who was the topless babysitter to die early on. By the time the sequel gave way to a series, I was off the publication and found no desire to see them since they lacked Carpenter’s hands-on touch.

I was interested, though, in the fresh sequel that opened in the fall. Not only was Carpenter involved, but it would feature Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode (an interesting development since she never wanted to make the first sequel but felt forced into it).

What Carpenter brought to the first film was an off-kilter sensibility, letting the dark lighting prey on our minds, and offering us a shape with a knife,

2019 Universal Preview

  • JoBlo
Universal Pictures accounted for 15% of box office revenue in 2018 for a total domestic gross of $1.8 billion and that was without a new Fast And Furious movie. With five movies grossing over $100 million, including Mama Mia: Here We Go Again and the long anticipated Halloween, Universal still made a lot of money off of critically maligned movies like The Grinch and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. In 2019, fans can look forward to Hobbs & Shaw as well as multiple Blumhouse horror movies.…

A Quiet Place Wins Critics’ Choice Award For Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie

A Quiet Place ended 2018 as one of the year’s biggest success stories in genre cinema, and the plaudits for John Krasinski’s horror smash just keep coming, with the film receiving the award for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie at last night’s 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the survivors live in silence for fear of attracting the attention of sound-sensitive monsters, A Quiet Place beat out Annihilation, Halloween, Hereditary and Suspiria for the prize on an evening that also saw Roma take home Best Picture, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse win Best Animated Feature, Mission: Impossible – Fallout win Best Action Movie and Crazy Rich Asians nab Best Comedy.

A Quiet Place is the seventh film to win the award for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie, which was first given out to Looper by the Broadcast Film Critics Association in 2012, and was last earned by 2017’s Get Out.

4 Horror Movies Coming Back to Haunt Us With Reboots in 2019

4 Horror Movies Coming Back to Haunt Us With Reboots in 2019
There are some truly terrifying films set to hit the big screen next year, but surprisingly, some of the scariest-looking ones are based on stories that we already know. While it's true that some reboots are major flops, great remakes can pay the perfect tribute to cinematic classics, and no remakes work as well as horror flicks. This year saw resurrections of everything from 1977's Suspiria to 1978's Halloween, and 2019 promises a whole new batch of old movies rising from the dead.

Unfortunately, while the The Crow was initially slated for an October 2019 release, the project was put on hold as of May 2018 when star Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy dropped out of the project. That said, here are all of the upcoming horror movie reboots you can definitely look forward to seeing in the next year.

Nick Castle Weighs In On Escape From New York Remake

When it comes time to discuss the illustrious career of a director such as John Carpenter, it can become rather difficult to choose a single favorite from his films. But as much as I love Halloween and Big Trouble in Little China, I think Escape from New York actually takes the cake for me.

Funny enough, a follow-up arrived years later in the form of Escape from L.A., but the plot was so similar to the original that you could consider it to simultaneously be a sequel and a remake. Still, Hollywood has been wanting to get an actual remake off the ground for some time now.

Most appropriately, ComicBook.com asked longtime friend and collaborator of Carpenter’s, Nick Castle, what he thought of the long-gestating second attempt. Seeing as how he co-wrote the screenplay to the original Escape from New York, I was interested in reading his following response:
