The upcoming Halloween movie coming from Blumhouse not only finished production recently, but even had its first test screenings. While most of the film appears to have done well with its test audiences, there was some concern regarding the ending. Now it appears the film will be undergoing reshoots to repair the damage.
According to Bloody-Disgusting:
Bloody Disgusting has learned that Green is getting back behind the camera to shoot additional scenes for his Halloween, which slashes into theaters this coming October. Sources tell me that the agenda is to tweak the finale following a recent test screening (without getting into it, yes, it took place).
Hopefully this should be nothing to worry about. Most films do undergo reshoots as a normal part of the filmmaking process. We just have to hope they’re enhancing the ending to be smarter and not dumbing it down as is the case with a variety of studio films. After all, we’ve seen how dumb a Halloween film can end before. (I’m looking at you, Halloween 6.)
And at the very least, we should be excited for what the film does have going for it. We’re not only getting to see Jamie Lee Curtis once again as Laurie Strode, but we’ll have original Myers star Nick Castle appear behind the mask as The Shape. We’ll also get to listen to a new amazing soundtrack from composer John Carpenter. So, it can’t be all that bad, right?
In the film which takes place four decades after the events of the 1978 original…
“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
Michael Myers returns in the new Halloween movie on October 19, 2018.
