Halloween Kills May Very Well Have Feminism Aspirations, But the Movie Was in Production Before January 6th
Here’s a story for Halloween, but it may not be the horror you’re looking for.
In a recent episode of Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut podcast, Jamie Lee Curtis brings up how the idea of the Halloween franchise receiving a soft reboot continuing after the original and ignoring the rest, stemmed from the ‘Me Too’ movement. They had an idea to restart and complete the franchise with Curtis’s character beating her abuser.
A few minutes later, she tries connecting the events of January 6th to the latest addition to the franchise, Halloween Kills. If you haven’t seen the movie (and even care to), the movie depicts mob violence and the problems that could employ. Although, not a horrible thing to depict as BLM and Antifa show us all the time, it is odd to try and spin this and pick and choose the January 6th incident. The biggest reason? The fact that the movie was finished prior to Jan 6th. The movie was originally set to release in October of 2020.
“We have just in America watched a mob descend on January 6 with nooses and stun guns and members of Congress in the building, and we all watched it on TV,” Curtis says.
Nice try, Jamie. Nice try.
If you want to listen to the podcast, you can do so here. The ‘Me Too’ and Jan. 6th conversation starts at about the 20 minute mark.
Stop shitting on John Carpenter’s legacy.
Hollywierd continues to not only try and reboot franchises over and over, but now they are trying to stick in their agendas and “high moral authority” into franchises people USED to love. Leave it alone already. Nobody cares.
Let’s hope Halloween Ends releasing next year finally ends the franchise. Somehow, I doubt it.
