Danny McBride: “Michael Myers Will Be Scary Again”

on

Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Alien: Covenant), producer of the new Halloween reboot, told the Empire Film Podcast he plans to make Michal Myers scary again:

“Look at where the Halloween franchise has gone. There’s a lot of room for improvement, David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are humongous fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original Halloween, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we’re just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original. It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn’t corny and it wasn’t turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn’t be killed. That stuff to me isn’t scary. I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen.”

I think it’s much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while you’re taking the trash out as opposed to someone who can’t be killed pursuing you.”
