Looks like 2016 is going to be the year of the slasher movies! By many news reports, you've most probably heard at least one of these movies being released next year. And oh boy, next year is going to be my favorite year by far! Now if you know me, you know I'm a horror lover! And so are you if you're reading this! So let's see what's to come out of these movies next year!
The first one on our list is Friday the 13th! Jason has always been one of my favorite slasher character of all time. Just the way he looks gives me chills, and that's mostly why the 2009 reboot sucked. Now it wasn't a terrible movie, it just wasn't scary. The original Jason looked freaky as hell, he would just be anywhere and everywhere you are when you're in Camp Crystal lake. In the reboot, it was just Jason's there... oh yeah, and he might kill you if you get in his way. So when they make the new Friday the 13th movie, they make Jason Voorhees scary again and not just a creepy killer we've seen a billion times before. So now, let's go to Texas...
Leatherface is the most gruesome slasher icon ever! Watch this video to see how gruesome he could get. Trust me, after you see it, you'll be blown away!
Okay, believe me now? Good, cause we're moving on. So the last Leatherface movie wasn't the best Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie in the series but... yeah. I am honestly really shocked they would make another one after that mess. But they are and I just really hope that they'll make it better. Even a decent film would bring the series back on track. But making the film a prequel I think was the bad move to make. We already got a prequel back in 2006 with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and that wasn't any good either! But will I still see it? Of coarse, I'm a horror freak. I'd even watch it if the title was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Leatherface Goes To Guam! So now, let's go to number three!
Now, the latest Child's Play installment was to me, the sequel the first Child's Play movie deserved. Not saying Child's Play 2 was bad, it's just Curse of Chucky was better. It went back to what made Chucky, Chucky! It made Chucky go after a family in a house... that's all it is! And I love that! The last two had Chucky movies had Chucky growing a family, driving cars, and doing the dance with no pants with Bonnie from Family Guy! So now that they're off crack and announced a seventh installment, how could it not be awesome? Hopefully it doesn't suck as bad as Seed of Chucky. Even though the director of Seed of Chucky also directed Curse of Chucky, so... yeah. Just stay off the hookah pins Don Mancini. Just go to rehab and then make the seventh installment. Oh well, maybe in 2017!
Next in the list is Halloween Returns! The last two installment directed by the best director in the world, Rob Zombie, were so good in cinematography, it ended at two. (Yeah, that's why.) But now, they're making a new Halloween movie as a continuation after H20. And that's what I think they did right, continuing the world of the original. I love the original Halloween movie and hated the idea of reboot back in 2007. But now that they're making a continuation, how could I be angry? If only they didn't get Rob Zombie, the guy who barley destroyed the Halloween franchise, make the story for the film... why? Just why? But I've always thought of Michael Myers as the lesser violent Jason Voorhees. You know, they're both killing for the love of a family member using knifes and stalking their pray out in the open. So if they can make Micheal Myers and Jason Voorhees scary again, I'll literally crap myself!
And finally, we're getting a new reboot of the classic horror film starring Freddy himself, A Nightmare on Elm Street! Now, after the passing away of the horror legend, Wes Craven (God Bless His Soul), there hasn't been a lot of news coming out for this film. Honestly, if they announce tomorrow that they're scrapping the project, I wouldn't be that shocked. Wes Craven was to me, the only person who knew how to direct a Freddy movie. Not only because he created the character, it's just he knew how to make him scary and funny at the same time. And the 2010 reboot just backed that whole fact making Freddy just another cliche horror movie villain. So really, if they do get anyone to direct this movie, make it the producer of the first Nightmare on Elm Street, Robert Shaye. He would be the best for a project like this. Especially since he was along with Wes Craven for the original film. But who should play Freddy? Anyone could really. But if you asked me, I would make it Jude Law. He's 42 years old right now and he has the face of a serious yet funny psychopathic killer. Sorry, that came out wrong.
