Just a reminder to
everyone that only a little over a week away,
HALLOWEEN:RESURRECTION will be haunting video and DVD.
December 10th, to be exact, is when you can rent or own the
film. The Special Edition DVD comes with audio commentary,
ten minutes of deleted scenes, three alternate endings,
featurettes, and more.
September 4, 2002
According to DVDFile,
Michael Myers will revisit everyone's home again December 10th, on
DVD. Here is what they have to say:
On 12/10 Michael Myers once again comes home in Halloween
Resurrection, featuring Busta Rhymes kicking some serious
Myers ass. This special edition includes a 2.35:1 anamorphic
widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 surround tracks,
audio commentary and deleted scenes, never-before-seen "Dangertainment"
video-cam footage shot by the actors, and the trailer. (While
early reports indicated that the "Dangertainment"
footage would be accessible during the film via the multi-angle
function, no details have yet been released, but stay tuned.)
Retail is $29.95.

It's just now hit
theaters, but plans are already under way for the DVD release of
HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION. Director Rick Rosenthal has already clued
us in that several cut scenes will most likely be included.
Rosenthal also says that they're working to bring a multiple angle
format to the disc to allow you to view the entire film directly
through the cast's cameras. In other words, you'll be able to
experience Dangertainment first hand, much like the character of
Myles did in the movie, choosing whichever point-of-view you wish.

February 28, 2002
HALLOWEEN 6 was originally
subtitled "The Origin of Michael Myers." HALLOWEEN H20
was known as "The Revenge of Laurie Strode." And, while
fans continue to play the waiting game, HALLOWEEN 8 has managed to
go through a name change. The newest installment in the series
will (for now, at least) be called HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION instead
of the previously announced HALLOWEEN: HOMECOMING.
January 16, 2002
Dimension Films adds a bit of
HALLOWEEN 8 information to their website.
January 7, 2002
Time for rumor control! Moustapha
Akkad released a statement today:
"The film is
fine and will be released in the summer of 2002. Yes, there were
re-shoots - but no, Rick Rosenthal has not been fired. The
franchise remains in tact."
October 3, 2001
HALLOWEEN 8 director Rick
Rosenthal was recently interviewed by the Sci-Fi
Channel for an upcoming edition of their short-film showcase EXPOSURE.
Rick Rosenthal's film THE OBIT GUY, along with interview clips, will
air on the Sci-Fi channel on October 14th at 12am EST. Rosenthal's
film will be the second shown that evening.

director Rick Rosenthal - check up on the current status of
HALLOWEEN 8. A few re-shoots are set to take place next month, but
other than that, HALLOWEEN 8 is in a holding pattern.
August 17, 2001
As fans try to adjust to the
disappointment of the HALLOWEEN 8 delay, director Rick Rosenthal
offers a gleam of hope...
"Ever since Paramount re-shot the ending of FATAL
ATTRACTION and it became a huge hit, studios have become great believers in tinkering with the finale of
a film, trying to make sure that the ending is a home run and the audience
leaves completely satisfied.
I think when the film is released next year, audiences will agree it was well
worth the wait!"

Sources involved in the
distribution of the film reveal that HALLLOWEEN 8 has been now been
moved to an Easter, 2001 release.

HALLOWEEN 8 continues its
journey through post-production. There is still no date set for a
trailer release. Meanwhile, to combat internet rumors, here's a
statement directly from Moustapha Akkad's office...
Mr. Akkad is denying all
allegations that he is not pleased with the film, according to the
Canadian source. There was no rough cut at that time [when he was
in Canada], therefore making it impossible for him to comment.
July 25, 2001
"The powers that
be" screened a rough cut of HALLOWEEN 8 today for the first
time at noon (PT).

With only 3 days left for
production, the set has been busy. Steve Newton, writer for the UK
horror publication Shivers was a visitor on set last week,
with an article planned for September. Ian Bailey of Canada's National
Post newspaper visited set Friday, as well - look for a
feature sometime this week. All together, a total of 8 different
media outlets were on set Friday - and all were wowed by the Myers
house set. Brad Loree is getting a lot of attention from the local
media. He has been featured in 4 television stories. Vancouver seems
proud that a local guy is playing America's favorite monster.

First week wrap up! First off, special thanks
to unit photographer Kimberly French, who is kindly providing shots
that take us straight to the set!
Jamie Lee Curtis has proven
to be fun to work with for crew members, adding a great deal of
input into the overall plan. Curtis gave several of the crew members
wonderful momentos, and even autographed a Micheal Myers action
figure in the box for one lucky crew member.
May 16, 2001
The special weather words for the week thus
far -- Bleak and Cold. Those two words describe the weather
for the first two days of shooting in Vancouver. Last night's
downpour went on for hours and added to the scenes being shot
outside the sanitarium.
Katee Sackhoff, now set
to play Sara Moyer, has appeared in an episode of the TV series
Zoe, Duncan, Jack, & Jane as well as the television
movies Fifteen and Pregnant, Hefner: Unauthorized, and
The Fearing Mind.

October...it was rainy and cold all day.
May 13, 2001
The crew is hard at work preparing for
Monday. The HALLOWEEN 8 company will set up Monday for the
first day of shooting at a century-old psychiatric hospital that
doubles (surprise) as a sanitarium in the film. As one crew member
puts it, "Every strange story you could possibly think up for the
place could be authenticated." Filming will take place in an
abandoned building that formerly housed criminally insane inmates.
Moustapha Akkad is heading for the set from his L.A. office today.
Jamie Lee Curtis will have her first day in front of the HALLOWEEN 8
cameras on Wednesday.
May 10, 2001 (Update
what Rick Rosenthal already has - Jamie Lee Curtis will
indeed return for a role in HALLOWEEN 8. Shooting is now scheduled
to begin on Monday. If all goes as planned, we should have pictures
next week from the first day of shooting. In other news, Dimension
Films has nixed the idea of having Danielle Harris star in an
all-new role in HALLOWEEN 8. However, producers are keeping a
constant eye on our fan poll -
so make sure you have already cast your vote! Dimension Films has
also decided to name the film HALLOWEEN: THE HOMECOMING - which is
still a working title and may very well change. The production
company is still using the working title HALLOWEEN 8.

March 7, 2001
First off, Whitney Ransick, who was
previously reported as helming HALLOWEEN 8, is no longer involved in
the film. Now, time for some HALLOWEEN trivia. No director in the
history of HALLOWEEN films has ever returned to direct for a second
time. But all that may change soon. Reports indicate that HALLOWEEN
II director Rick Rosenthal is being considered as a
replacement for Ransick in the director's chair. As casting
for the film gears up, Tyra Banks, who's appeared in THE
FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR and the film HIGHER LEARNING, is being
considered for a role. Keep checking back for more information as
HALLOWEEN 8 becomes a reality!

Rumors have been running rampant over the
internet about the title of the next HALLOWEEN film. The
producers tell us that the title of the next film will not be
HALLOWEEN 8: MICHAEL MYERS.COM. That is the working title
only. The film will have a different title by the time it's
finished. Also, last week Jamie Lee Curtis was
interviewed on Entertainment Tonight, and after the segment, Jan
Carl confirmed that Jamie Lee will be making a cameo appearance in
the next HALLOWEEN.
February 14, 2001
At long last, new details on the next HALLOWEEN
installment! CURRENTLY, as previously reported, Larry Brand
has penned the script. Whitney Ransick, known
for his work on television on shows like ER, CRACKER, and SHOCK
TELEVISION, is attached to direct HALLOWEEN 8. Principle photography
is set to begin in April, 2001, in Vancouver, Canada.
Moustapha Akkad's office has finally released the
name of the screenwriter for the next installment. Larry Brand will
bring Michael Myers to life one more time. His writing credits
include MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH in 1989 and 1998's PARANOIA.
Shooting is planned to begin this spring. There may be a very
special event in the works for HALLOWEEN fans on the internet, but
only time will tell if plans will flesh out.
May 9, 2000
Moustapha Akkad's office
reports that it is looking like HALLOWEEN H2K will not happen this
year. The main reason behind the delay is "legal mumbo jumbo," which
has plagued the series for many years. "Reassure fans that there
will be another HALLOWEEN. Besides, there are a lot of people who
feel that 2001 is when the real millennium begins..."
October 5, 1999

Paul Freeman, producer of several films in the

next installment in the series is HALLOWEEN H2K - EVIL NEVER
DIES. Several writers are currently working on scripting the new
movie, which will most likely feature a return to Haddonfield in the
storyline. The HALLOWEEN 8 fan feedback that this website recently
collected played, and will continue to play, a large role in the
shaping of this new movie. The movie will most likely be shot in
Salt Lake City, home of previous sequels. HALLOWEEN H2K, distributed
by Dimension Films, is targeted for a Fall, 2000

Michael's coming back again - or is he? The
HALLOWEEN film series is considering making the next installment a
Shape-less film, removing Michael Myers from the storyline, much
like HALLOWEEN III SEASON OF THE WITCH. This website collected fan
feedback, which will influence the decision. Thanks to the thousands
of you that submitted your feelings on the matter - which was
overall to bring Michael Myers back!
