Many fans are upset by this news and many fans want him to end up under the control of New Line or Paramount because because it would be awesome to have a universe where Freddy, Jason, Michael and Leather face all exist or would it?
I really don't think it would because like the Comic book universe(s) there is too much going on in many of those movies to keep the casual fan interested for a 2+ hour run time. this is huge news and a blow to horror fans ans life long Halloweens fans specifically.
While the original Halloween Series is full of continuity issues I often tell fans when they ask "How can I follow this story" I tell them to watch John Carpenter's Halloween, Halloween II and H20 and its a complete trilogy. (You can watch Resurrection if you want but personally I think H20 is the perfect end of the series) then I tell then to watch Halloween 4 - 6 because that is a different story arch completely and it's own trilogy.
When I finish telling people this it's about a 50 -50 split as to weather I'm an idiot or a genius to have figured this out but the fans that listen to me and watch the movies in that order agree that the series when split up like that makes more sense then if you watch them in order .
Now to talk about the much hated Halloween II directed by Rob Zombie in 2010. this movie is outright HATED by fans and I'll tell you why, simply put MOST fans didn't understand it. The white horse is a huge point of dislike for fan because they don't understand why it's in the movie and it's explained in the opening of the movie and referenced during the movie twice. it was brilliant. the whole point of the movie which they didn't do in the original series ws show the immediate effects on Laurie Strode (they did the H20 storyline) Rob Zombie's 2010 H2 shows the effects on Laurie 1 year later (2 years if you watch the directors cut) this is a huge deal and fans couldn't grasp it either because they didn't understand it or because they dislike Rob Zombie and his film making style.
The whole point of the movie is to see how damaged Laurie was from the events of the first film and show her slow decent into madness just like her brother. it was well shot, well made and ultimately Rob Zombie did something no one else in the franchises history could do he told his complete story in two movies.
I love Jason Voorhees and who can forget the original killer Mrs. Voorhees played by the late Betsy Palmer. When Friday The 13th came out in 1980 it had the same effect as Halloween in 1978 it knocked horror fans on their ass and we knew we had something we could get behind.
Like I said earlier there are a ton of continuity issues with the series and that bothers most fans in one way or another but not me, I don't get to bent out of shape if the "timeline" doesn't fit, that kind of stuff never really bothered me much because I want a good movie and why should I care if the killing does or doesn't take place on Friday The 13th ? I think that is kind of dumb to think that Jason only kills on a date that only happens maybe 3 times a year, think about it for a minute so campers are safe any other weekend of the year. really ??
I enjoyed the Tommy Jarvis storyline in Friday The 13th Parts IV - VI the most because there was alot of continuity in these films more so then any of the films prior and after part VI for that matter.
I enjoyed Jason Takes Manhattan for many reasons, it was fun, interesting to see Jason stalking around a boat and then in the big city but it was more of Jason Takes A Cruise then taking Manhattan, then they "jumped the shark" with JGTH and lost alot of fans.
Jason in the original series was laid to rest on Earth 2 at the end of Jaosn X and seemingly would never raise from the depths of the lake again ....
This was a jumble of the Original four films of the series and in my opinion was right on par with Rob Zombie's Halloween in 2007 as far as telling a great story with changes that made sense to the new fans as well as the long time fans, I like how they showed him getting the mask on screen unlike in Friday The 13th Part 3D when he kills Shelley off screen and just shows up with the mask.
Over all I think the remake was very well made, old school shooting style they returned Jason into the killing machine he was back in the day, the one issues I have about this movie is the pot field and Jason protecting it, they made it seem that is what Jason was doing all this time protecting a pot crop, kind of dumb to me, the one thing I really liked was the underground tunnel system because it explains how Jason could move around the camp and not be seen as well has explained how he was able to cover so much ground and always catch his prey .
Wes Craven created an Icon in Freddy Kreuger much like Michael and Jason before him Freddy now all these years later holds a special place in the hearts of Horror fans worldwide.
Much like Halloween and Friday The 13th before ANOES also had continuity issues come up from movie to movie and it's inevitable because you have different writers and directors from film to film and they all have their own ideas where the story should go next.
Overtime Freddy became more funny and comical with his delivery of one liner after one liner and he lost his fear factor and just got to soft for me, I didn't enjoy Freddy's Dead at all because it was just bad, I loved Wes Craven's New Nightmare because it blurred the line between film and reality on film.
My wife is a loyal Freddy fan and we watch the films many times through out the year because she's a big fan much like I'm a Michael and Jason fan so we watch those films many times thorough the year with marathons on Friday The 13th and Halloween every year respectively.
The changed the story almost completely and that is complete crap, change little things like character names or places but not the backstory which is what made Freddy the monster that he is and should have always been.
Creating New "Monsters" .
My "Monster" Mortis is a flesh and blood human. no superpowers, not a zombie nothing but a human being. This I think has a unique element to it in that this "Monster" can be anyone, you best friend, you mom, your dad, the weird uncle who visits on weekends or the girl next door and that right there is some scary shit people.
I wanted to create a killer or "monster" who could evolve over the course of the trilogy and create more fear and havoc while we play with the idea that it could be anyone and no one is safe because no one knows who the killer really is.
The clown will be used in the upcoming film Wicked Carnival (Currently in early development) You have seen Mortis in action as we released Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis on DVD worldwide on Halloween. If you haven't seen the movie yet you can grab it on ebay and from sinsofmanmovie.com .
More monsters will be coming to life from Wicked Carnival Productions in the future after the conclusion of the Sins of Man trilogy and the one off film Wicked Carnival we will be working on a new monster movie that may or may not have an actual monster in the movie, you'll have to wait and see :)
STAY TUNED & STAY WICKED !!
