Jamie Lee Curtis Confirmed for Halloween Sequel; Release Date Set

Twitter

Big horror news dropping right before the Halloween season!

Via ScreenRant:

Jamie Lee Curtis is set to reprise her iconic role of Laurie Strode in next year’s Halloween sequel. The godfather of the slasher genre, John Carpenter’soriginal 1978 classic Halloween not only introduced a template for the faceless slasher killer in Michael Myers, it also introduced a model for all future scream queens in Curtis’ resourceful yet frightened Laurie. Curtis would return for 1981 sequel Halloween II, in which the infamous reveal that Laurie was actually Michael’s sister occurred.

Following Halloween II, Curtis moved on to other projects, and wouldn’t return to the franchise until 1998’s Halloween H20. Laurie Strode was finally killed off – seemingly for good – in the opening scenes of 2002’s generally-disliked Halloween: Resurrection, a film which later featured Busta Rhymes spin-kicking Myers. Laurie had actually casually been killed off prior to that in 1988’s Halloween 4, which centered on her orphaned daughter Jamie. H20ignored films 3-6, so Laurie was resurrected. The Halloween franchise continuity is nothing if not confusing. Read more on this story here

What Are The Three Best Blu-Ray Horror Movies?

thingAccording to the Washington Times, they are: Carrie, The Hills Have Eyes, and The Thing. ”

With Halloween preparations in full swing for this weekend, here’s a trio of Blu-ray movie suggestions to set the mood for a mature evening of horror.

Carrie: Collector’s Edition (Shout! Factory, Rated R, 1.85:1 aspect ratio, $34.93) — Director Brian De Palma’s Academy Award-nominated adaptation of Stephen King’s first novel celebrates its 40th anniversary with an impressive return to Blu-ray in a two-disc set.

The nightmarish tale about a shy teenager with telekinetic powers (Sissy Spacek) pushed over the edge of sanity by an abusive, religion-obsessed mother (Piper Laurie) and high school bullies (including actors Nancy Allen and John Travolta) became a staple of horror aficionados, and is regarded by critics as one of the best films of 1976.

The Blu-ray set boasts a new digital 4k scan from the original negative to enhance the visual impact of Carrie’s supernatural powers — including the infamous, terrifying prom scene.

Frightening extras: Short of any current words from Mr. King and Mr. De Palma or an optional commentary track, the bonus content shines with more than three hours of interviews (six out of the eight are new) with many of the cast and crew, including screenwriter Lawrence Cohen, cinematographer Mario Tosi, editor Paul Hirsch and actors William Katt, Miss Allen, Betty Buckley and Miss Laurie.” Read more on the breakdown of these three movies here

Metallica Releasing Limited Edition Halloween Mask/New Tune

metallica“Thrash metal titans Metallica are giving their fans a chance to hear “Atlas, Rise!” a bit early on Halloween but it’s going to take some legwork to make it happen.

What’s happening is that the band has teamed up with a ton of independent music retailers that will be sent limited Hardwired…to Self Destruct masks that contain a code to stream the song 30 minutes before its release on Halloween. It’s unclear how many masks each retailer will get, what they look like, or how you’re going to be able to get them. But even with that lack of information, I’m still 100% behind this idea. It’s just so damn cool!

The full list of retailers can be found on Metallica’s website.”
