If it wasn’t enough to hear great news this morning that horror factory Blumhouse, Trancas International Films and Mirimax are bringing us a new Halloween flick, they also have convinced the master himself John Carpenter to return to the franchise to executive produce and possibly score, as well. Now the great folks over at Bloody Disgusting.com have broken news that Absentia, OculusHush director Mike Flanagan is in talks to direct! As a huge fan of Flanagan and Carpenter being one of my favorite filmmakers of all time, this is epic news to MonsterZero NJ’s ears!
From John Carpenter himself…

“We’re going to go back to the earlier traditions that we started with. It’s kind of gone astray a little bit. I thought that maybe the remake went off somewhere that I didn’t want it to go. Michael Myers is not a character, he’s a force of nature. He is not a person; he is part supernatural, part human. When you start straying away from that and start explaining, you’re lost. So hopefully we can guide it back in that direction.”
