John Carpenter is not usually a fan of remakes of his films. Over the years he has remained sort of grumpy when asked about reboots and remakes. Despite, his own film The Thing being a remake itself, Carpenter has not ever been a big fan of the remake/reboot. However, it seems that he is very into the direction Halloween Kills has taken.
“It’s the quintessential slasher film…It is so intense…oh my god…it even stuns me how incredible it is. David just did a great job. Can’t wait to have you see it.”
Those are high marks coming from Carpenter. Usually he remains pretty buttoned up about these sorts of things. But, hearing him sound like an actual fan of the work that Blumhouse is doing on Halloween Kills is exciting.
The entire one-hour video is worth a watch and is filled with that classic Carpenter attitude we personally love. Carpenter also reveals that his Lost Themes III album is on its way as soon as next year.
Halloween Kills is currently set for release on Oct. 15 2021.
