I think we should be used to the idea that this will be far more violent, and therefore gory, than the original film...oh, and the movie being almost two hours long makes me happy. I've been seeing all these overlong, bloated summer movies this year...and I just had a gut-wrenching feeling that the one movie I was eagerly awaiting would be like 70 minutes or some shit...we all remember the run time for H20....:yar:

I think some of use have different views of what gory actually means. To me, it would be pretty gory if Michael pulls out someone's intestines and was playing around with them. Or perhaps if we see extreme closeups of eyeballs being pulled out and dangling. Exploding heads fits the bill as well. I haven't seen a picture yet that tells me there's anything like that in the movie.

The only thing I've seen is the same pictures of the Strodes that we've all seen. And those are not gory. Are they bloody? Yes, quite bloody. But not even close to what I, or most people, would consider gore.

Deckard
08-11-2007, 01:26 AM
Yeah...I think the same way...but it will be far more gruesome than the original for sure.

Thurisaz

I don't have a problem with gruesome. I mean if we see limbs falling everywhere and blood geysers shooting out of decapitated heads that would be taking it too far. But anyone that's actually seen a crime scene photo knows that when people get sliced and stabbed in a violent manner, the blood will indeed flow.

Deckard
08-11-2007, 01:31 AM
I don't wanna be a little bitch...but I tried to tell everyone about the Hot Topic shirt over a week ago...but that's cool, glad everyone knows about it now...I want lots of them to be bought so they'll come out with more merchandise for the movie....

I agree. Person to person what classifies as "gore" will differ. I've heard the movie is bloody in places, mainly the Strode house, but stabbings and kills are not lingered upon or shown really close up and in detail. The original didn't have barely any, but I understand times have changed and blood is going to flow.

yeah i don't consider blood to be gore, so if that's what they meant by that then i feel prettty good about this. the exploding head in h6 pissed me off for the simple fact that it was unrealistic mindless gore, as long as there isn't extreme stuff like that than i am fine.

Monte
08-11-2007, 03:38 AM
There is a lot of blood in the promotional photos, but so far it seems Michael is just stabbing and slashing. He's not doing anything fancy like making heads explode or pushing faces through iron bars. That's the only concern I had regarding the issue of violence, so I think it'll be okay.

EvilOnTwoLegs
08-11-2007, 04:01 AM
Whoo-hoo! I actually made it to one of these threads before there were any "piss-and-moan" posts in it. Finally!

And yeah, on the issue of gore...to me, there's a massive difference between outright gore and brutal, realistic violence. There's plenty of the former to be found in the H6 T-Cut. So far, all I've seen from the remake footage and photos indicates the latter. And I have no problem with strong, realistic violence in a film like this. I consider it appropriate.

Annie and (sort of) Laurie were briefly smoking dope in the first movie, so it's not like that's anything new. Though when Loomis is first introduced he's apparently kind of a hippie. Seeing him light up would be quite amusing indeed.

Realistic violence is frowned upon. You can lop someone's head off and have the stump gush blood like a firehouse and it's okie-dokie, but if you have a finger get cut off and you show what that would really be like, then oh dear, that might be too disturbing.

Even though I know this was a remake they could have least stuck with some of the history in the 1st one. Ex: Michael killed his sister when he was 6 not 10 and also he wasn't let out he released the other patients so he could get away easier and Michael didn't know about Laurie till he returned to the house and saw a pic of her.

The MPAA has some weird descriptors to go with their ratings, so their version of gore is probably different.

...not to mention a six-year-old stabbing his sister to death.

In regards to Zombie's film, violence won't bother me. It's more gratuitous gore that annoys me, such as the Shape jamming his thumb through somebody's skull. The Devil's Rejects was very violent, but I wouldn't call it gratuitous, and I'm hoping for the same with Halloween. Visceral is great; gratuitous is not.

Yea, gratuitous anything bothers me, because it distracts from the movie. If violence/gore or sex/nudity make the movie more realistic, or have an important part in the story, that's fine. If not, I say it's usually used to distract people from the fact that they're watching a crappy film.

From what the leaked script and trailers suggest, a good amount of the nudity in this film is plot-driven and not there for gratuity.

see to me thats kind of silly. I can understand not being able to directly remake Halloween 2 verbatim because of copywrite issues. Nonetheless, a premise in this film involves a guy going around killing/attacking people and logically, some of those people who might survive in a sequel film would need to go to a hospital to get treated. Just because a sequel might contain scenes at a hospital on a night following the murders, does that necessarily mean they're copying H2?

I think the idea of using the hospital for just a part of the film is good. Perhaps the climax of the movie or something. I wouldn't want it to be the primary setting like it was in Halloween 2.

I know. Bud was awesome, with his famous lines. It's too bad his death scene was stupid; Bud deserved better!

On to the topic of the blood, personally, I think it's a good idea that they're using a lot of blood. We all know that Myers goes kill-happy in this one, and so the blood will just make it all the more realistic. Now, the only thing that bothers me (because I find it dumb) is torture porn but by the looks of things, this movie isn't going to have any of that.

How exactly would you fit "torture porn" into a Halloween film?

MichaelMyers04

Well, it could be a torture death scene, where they keep showing close-up shots of Myers slowly slashing the person's skin.....Honestly, I can't really think of a scene like that, because I know that it wouldn't fit in a HalloweeN movie.

My family ordered pizza tonight.
When I looked down on the pizza and saw the little pepperoni slices,
it made me think of the nip-shots to come in RZ's Halloween.
When my mom wasn't looking, I licked the pepperoni on my pizza like a nipple - exactly the way TT Boy would do it.
I'm going to sit in the back of the theater when I go to see RZ's Halloween!

I agree. Person to person what classifies as "gore" will differ. I've heard the movie is bloody in places, mainly the Strode house, but stabbings and kills are not lingered upon or shown really close up and in detail. The original didn't have barely any, but I understand times have changed and blood is going to flow.

Sweet, I'm finally starting to see some Tv Spots on Fox. I was watching Scrubs, and I saw one that was identical to one of the old ones (the tv spot #2) except it had Tommy say "that's the devil's house", and ended with Michael attacking Bob. The thing about this trailer is that it had a very quick shot of someone with the pumpkin on their head (much like the picture we've already seen). I've got a pretty good idea that the scene was right after Michael kills Paul, because it seemed like his body was still shaking or moving I'm glad they kept this scene in; I heard on IMDB that they had cut that scene out (but I hardly listen to those people anyway). Has anyone else seen this Tv spot?

Because, as speculated, [BIG SPOILER] Loomis has his eyes gouged out by Myers.

The comment that made me sit up from that interview was this:

Well, let’s hope there’s not too many sequels and that this can stand on its own.

They’re not even talking about it. That’s what I really liked about Bob Weinstein. He wanted to reinvent it and do something different and wasn’t ever talking about firing up a franchise. He was always focused on making one solid movie. Because already by now, they’d be planning Part 2, if they were thinking that. And they’re not. That’s what I like about this. The intentions all around were really in the right place.


They are tossing ideas around as we speak. There will be a part 2 if this hits big. There will be a sequel even if it flops, direct to dvd most likely. This series is not going to die. Money is to be made.

Really trying to calm people down by saying just because it's in the breakdown doesn't mean it's in the film, when it was in the script. Atleast he came on here to make sure what to/or not to do. Or in some cases just to basically warn fans what his vision was going to involve.

I've upped my vodka intake to help get prepared. From what I've been hearing around the circuit this last week, this films finishes what Thorn and Busta Rhymes started. Woo hoo!

Basically, expect terrible reviews from genre reviewers. Mainstream reviewers will likely tear it apart when they see it.

We could be competing on a "Halloween: Resurrection" 11% splat level here on Rotten Tomatoes come opening weekend. Realistically, it will probably be a little better than the "When a Stranger Calls" remake. I'm guessing the tomatometer will top off around 20% or so.

Why? There isn't any way that I, or anybody I talk to, can think of to make a sequel that would have been able to be good in the least bit. I don't understand the idea of being angered that there is a remake instead of a sequel, because as far as I'm concerned the remake was the best way to be able to take Halloween, a film and series that I have loved and stared at in horror as I've watched it descend into utter crap, and turn it into something of quality again.

I don't understand the idea of being angered that there is a remake instead of a sequel, because as far as I'm concerned the remake was the best way to be able to take Halloween, a film and series that I have loved and stared at in horror as I've watched it descend into utter crap, and turn it into something of quality again.

about a year or more before the remake was announced, wasnt there a sequel rumor floating around which involved Michaels survivors(Tommy, John, Jamie's kid, etc) and Loomis' son? I dont know the details but I'm assuming they would all come together to take down Michael once and for all.

As with any movie, something like that could either be great or it could be a disaster...it all would depend on the writers, cast, and crew...but I thought the general premise sounded decent. :nodsmile:

Forum member FreakZILLA went to the LA screening and said:
It appears that Michael kills Dr. Loomis at the end by crushing the bridge of his nose into his brain, but that could easily be retconned into Dr. Loomis being unconcious in a sequel.

What he does is pull those things on his hips (the part the chain threads through) away which gives him more arm maneuvering. Still take a lot of strength as they are screwed into the leather belt.

I am really digging Dee Wallace's wounds. Specifically ..
I like the fact that she has defensive wounds on her hands. I hope she tried to fight off Michael's knife before becoming that thing on the couch. Not many movies think of that, so maybe Rob is going for a bit of realism.
Let us hope.

It is my opinion that after the travesty that was H:R there was no more places to go in a sequel, and there was no way that said sequel could have been more than a slight upgrade from H:R. The only way that I can think of to make a film that had the potential to be descent was to make the remake. Is it a garuntee that the remake will be good? No. But it has a better chance than a sequel did. Again that's all just opinion.

A sequel could be good, but it depends were they would take the series. H:R was not the way to go. It wasn't a bad movie, but being in a series like Halloween didn't help the movie. The problem with the movie was it tried to be to modern and forgot it was a Halloween movie. I didn't have any feeling that H:R was a Halloween movie.

People can say there was no direction left, but they said the same thing after H6. Then H20 came out and people got excited again. With the remake, people are excited again. This could have been a prequel only, and people would probably be excited.

At the end of the day, you go for the best option available. For Akkad and company, this is the best option they felt they had. They wanted a fresh start, and a sequel could have allowed that, but you going to hear complaints from people saying how they acknowledge something from a sequel. Really, nobody wants to hear about Thorn, they really want to hear about the characters. There was a script by Justin Morris, it wasn't being looked at, that could have easily been made into a sequel and it had pretty much no mention of Thorn. The timing was off for the movie though because JLC came back into the series. She offered everyone the best option for the series to continue.

A sequel could have worked, but the remake offers everyone involved the best option to continue the series for another decade.

Yea, after all that stalker stuff, Danielle started martial arts training. I guarantee that, in real life mind you, if she was attacked by someone who didn't take her seriously, her finger would be on the OC button and her foot would be about the perp's crotch in no time flat. The point here is that it's foolish to judge someone's fighting spirit just by looking at them. Annie is the Sheriff's daughter, so she might know a thing or two about self defense also.

Yea, I agree. From what I've seen in the trailers, the tv spots, and from what people have been speculating, Annie (among others as well) will put up one hell of a fight against Michael. In fact, that's one of the main scenes I want to see, because it's going to be a nice change to see people actually trying to fight hard for their lives. This only happened a few times in the old series.

Actually, it isn't impossible, as you said. If someone feels they are going to die, they will put up the fight of their lives. People can gain strength they could never have imagined they had. Not everyone is like this, but it does happen.

I remember this bully in my high school. He was a big fellow, probably weighed 240, about 6 feet tall, and this was in 7th grade. He was picking on a buddy of mine who was around 130, 5'5.

You're right, strength relies on epinephrine... if the central nervous system is running wild, your opponent better look out.

I have heard a story were a grandmother had a grandson get runned over by a car, and she literally picked up the car and a person nearby grabbed the boy. She was in her 80's I believe. There are many stories like this.

I heard a story about when we, the USA, used one of the bombs on Japan and there were lifters lifting pianos into a building. When they saw people dying in front of them, they grabbed the piano and ran it into the building like it was a paperweight.

No, they're smack dab in the middle; psychological horror movies. The Silence Of The Lambs, for example, was marketed as a thriller because horror films don't make much of a killing at the Academy Awards, and it did. Needless to say, it has all the prominent elements to make a horror film, despite what its bullshit genre sticker says. ;)

At the same time though, I know that there will be points brought up that just demand to be countered
