After the era of the Supernatural movies with ghosts, is it time to the slasher genre to make a comeback?
Last year, we were lucky as some of the horror films that were released are slashers. We got Leatherface (released straight to VOD, DVD, Blu-ray), IT with Pennywise, Rings, Cult of Chucky, The ByeBye Man, Happy Death Day & Jeepers Creepers 3. 2017 was a good year, right?
We, unfortunately, got only one huge hit. Of course we’re talking about It. The movie made $327,481,748 on a 35 millions budget. Not bad. It has been certified “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes with an impressive 85% score. The audience score is, at this moment, at 84% which is big for a horror film.
This year is less impressive if we take a look at the list of upcoming slasher movies. We got The Strangers: Prey at Night which we thought the movie was pretty good and Hellraiser : Judgment. If we look ahead, we only have the return of one of the greatest Serial Killer of all time: Michæl Myers.
Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, if you didn’t know, Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield one more time. The movie is a straight sequel to the first movie. In this movie, we ignore all of the sequels of Halloween.
If Halloween gets one hell of a opening weekend and a great run in theaters, we could expect the return of our favorites serial kilkers. Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees could be the next ones to get a new movie.
I am pretty sure that New Line Cinema, Dimension Films and Paramount Pictures are waiting to see how much money Halloween will make at the Box Office.
