Set to premiere in mid-October (just in time for Halloween), the film continues the events of the success. review and audience 2018, which placed one of the most famous and beloved horror franchises in the hands of Blumhouse. The purpose of Halloween (2018) was to forget all the sequels and be a direct sequel to the original 1978 film. But of course Michael Myers is not dead and here he is taken out of the fire by the fire department to continue. his reign of terror. This time, however, in addition to the trio of female protagonists, she will have to face the wrath of the whole city.

Planned as a trilogy by director David Gordon Green, Blumhouse’s new films even managed to attract the presence of original creator John Carpenter, who stayed away from the franchise after the third film in 1982. Carpenter is producing the new ones. movies. However, it is only after the events presented in Halloween Kills that we will know what awaits us on Halloween Ends, the much-heralded conclusion of the trilogy, scheduled for October 2022. What to say, if nothing changes, c is that she will do the trick. of the trio of female protagonists, the Strode clan, with grandmother (Jamie Lee Curtis), daughter (Judy Greer) and granddaughter (Andi Matichack).
As said, Blumhouse is attacking many sides, from adaptations of famous games to old TV series and classic movie reboots. The studio has also managed to plant its fangs in some works by famous author Stephen King. He’s one of them, who was even taken to theaters in 1984, in a post-ET movie starring Drew Barrymore – The Alien. In the plot, a little girl has the supernatural gift of setting anything on fire, using only her mind. In the past, the explanation was a science experiment his parents had been subjected to.

Five nights at Freddy’s
The latest name to join the Blumhouse “family” is Chris Columbus, often associated with children’s productions for the whole family. It turns out that the filmmaker is also responsible for creating the Gremlins which mixes a childish atmosphere with certain levels of tension and terror. And that’s exactly what we should find in this adaptation of a famous video game which has already sold several titles. In the plot, a young man looking to earn a few pennies ends up accepting a job as a night porter in a pizzeria. What was supposed to be an easy job turns out to be the biggest challenge of his life when strange supernatural events begin to occur at the scene. The film is still in pre-production and has no announced release date.
With the classics it does not move. Have you ever heard this premise? Well, after the success of Halloween (2018), we can tweak it a bit. Don’t move unless it’s David Gordon Green. Blumhouse has purchased the rights to one of the most famous horror franchises and intends to do with it what it did with Halloween, in other words, revitalize it for the new times, but in striving for so much quality that it will also receive praise from the specialist. reviews. And for that, there is nothing more fair than calling the same guy to order the same guy who apparently got the Michael Myers franchise back on track. The Exorcist will also be a direct sequel to the original 1973 film and will forget all of the film’s sequels. The work is still in the pre-production phase.
Dark Universe’s plans may have come crashing down after The Mummy (2017) failed starring Tom Cruise, but Universal quickly recovered when he brought in filmmaker Leigh Whannell to redesign his classic monsters from a more minimalist and believable way. time. Thus, The Invisible Man (2020) became a critical and public success by mixing the HG Wells classic with a plot about domestic violence and violence against women. Now let’s see what the director will offer with his version of Werewolf. What we do know is that it will star Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling. The feature film is in pre-production.
Also joining the Blumhouse team, this is the studio’s first partnership with one of the most inventive and famous filmmakers of recent years, cult Darren Aronofksy. After blowing the minds of many with Abstract Mother! (2017), and revolted by so many others, the director returns, next to the macabre house of ideas, to give his vision of a Ghost Ship film. What will we see from there? We know that the protagonist will be Aronofsky’s usual collaborator, Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream). The feature film is in pre-production.
This one is not even in the pre-production phase yet, yet it is one of the ones that generates the most expectations. Created for the Todd McFarlane comics, the new film will be directed by Todd McFarlane, which may raise some suspicion. The new Spawn is on the list because it is promised as a highly regarded film with a lot of horror elements. The mood is there, as the story is about a government assassin returning from hell to get revenge after being betrayed. The film was announced with the names of Jamie Foxx as the protagonist, and Jeremy Renner linked.
Christine – The Killer Car
This other adaptation of a book by Stephen King has also been confirmed, this one more famous and popular. All because the story was already brought to the cinema in 1983 in the form of a production directed by master John Carpenter. In King’s book “The Brick”, a shy young man changes completely and begins to face gang bullies as soon as he falls in love with a car and begins to renovate it, changing himself as well. Bryan Fuller, screenwriter of series like Hannibal and Star Trek: Discovery will resume directing.
