DANNY MCBRIDE promises his alternate HALLOWEEN movie will reference other films.. MORE: That means that even Halloween II, which takes place on the same night and picks up immediately after the end of the first film, is not part of what McBride is calling an "alternate reality" for the franchise. It's a somewhat risky move considering the franchise's long history, but like Disney's decision to wipe the slate clean with the Star Wars Expanded Universe, it offers up a new world of possibilities for the creative team...
McBride and Green's film will be set 40 years after the original and return to Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) — who's now a mother and grandmother — as Michael Myers reappears in her life. How the film will address Michael's disappearance and the 40-year gap between stories (something the other films have never had the chance to try) is still a mystery, but that means Laurie's days as a teacher living under an assumed name with her son (as in Halloween H20) no longer count, and neither do the stories about Laurie's daughter Jamie (as in Halloween 4 and 5), which were already rendered non-canon by later sequels..

This is going to be G R E A T ! ! ! A horror movie from Shawn Levy and James Wan! .. MORE: The minds behind The Conjuring and Stranger Things are coming together for a new YA-based horror film. According to Deadline, James Wan and producer Shawn Levy will be developing an adaptation of Stephanie Perkins’s novel There’s Someone Inside Your House for a coming-of-age slasher-style film. The book centers on a young girl named Makani Young, who, a year after moving from Hawaii to Nebraska to live with her grandmother, gets caught in the middle of something sinister when her friends start getting murdered in hideous fashion. While the killer is being pursued, Makani has to reckon with her own secrets, and according to the Deadline report, audiences can expect “1980s and ’90s slasher movie meets a John Hughes coming-of-age tale like The Breakfast Club.” So if you’re into Stranger Things and teen screams, this movie is for you...

STRANGER THINGS gets hit with #MeToo! In a statement, the Duffer brothers said, “We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set. Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize. However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else. We remain totally committed to providing a safe and collaborative working environment for everyone on our productions"..

The slow and painful bite of nostalgia on a late winter's night

"Beware nostalgia" – it's holding you back from the rest of your life →theguardian.com

This is from a UK GUARDIAN article in 2014.. the nostalgia has changed a bit. The danger of nostalgia remains the same.

Nostalgia is a dangerous thing. It’s a signifier that you hate how your life has turned out. It’s a sign that you’ve mentally locked off, and you’re doomed to spend the rest of life drifting in a false reverie of a past that didn’t exist. Nostalgia is why Tim Lovejoy still dresses like it’s 1996 and is primed to weep the moment anyone mentions Ocean Colour Scene to him. It’s why all your Facebook friends spend their days in a whirlwind of incredulous bafflement at the passing of time, forever asking people to like JPEGs about conkers, all because they’re trapped in a loveless marriage to a woman they accidentally knocked up after ironically slow-dancing to I Want To Know What Love Is during a hideous School Disco party.
This isn’t a generational thing, incidentally. Everyone’s guilty of it. When I was growing up, I distinctly remember having teachers who would reminisce about their wartime evenings in Anderson shelters. Give them a time machine and the first thing they would do is dart back and relive their glory days shivering in a hole next to a bucket of wee, constantly awaiting terrifying death from above. At least you’re only nostalgic about Blind Date.

Stranger Things, Everything Sucks, and other similar shows have captivated and capitalized on an audience that wants the sugar coated past to come back again. We decorate the fragments of our history with beautiful imagery.. often ignoring the darker forces that are always at play regardless of the time frame.

Nostalgia is a dangerous thing.. it is a time

Nostalgia gives you the rush of memory.. the intense beauty of your childhood and your parents, your family.. the local mall that is now shuddered.. the laughter that has gone away with time.. Yes, nostalgia seems almost fixated in destroying your present time and future alike..

But with nostalgia, as the happiness becomes subdued and subsides, your moral compass turns towards the sadness and grief over the passage of time that comes with it.

We are all aging faster than we want to. Some us just don’t realize it until we have aged far too much.

And as you embrace nostalgia, as you welcome it when it comes knocking.. the inevitable dangers come with it. You will smile at its melancholy colors.. you will laugh along with its stories of past times go by.. and as you give it one last hug, you’ll swell with emotion.

…and that is when it sinks its vampire-style teeth deep into your soul, tearing your very insides out and forcing your body to weep the blood and tears of the past times gone by.

A horror movie /for our time/ .. It was announced just yesterday that James Gunn (Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy) is returning to the horror genre with an upcoming film he’s producing, which will reunite Gunn with the star of his own Slither, Elizabeth Banks. Plot details are being kept under wraps at this time..

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Executives at A24 were familiar with the short story, and when they heard the author had separately written a script, they became intrigued and tracked it down. What the execs found was a shrewd character study where mystery and deep-seated scares blended in such a way that the company saw an opportunity to make a horror movie that could also be culturally relevant, sources say. The plan is to fast-track the script to production, sources added.”..

'Veronica' is out of the closet

'True' story VERONICA is being called one of the scariest movies ever made .. 

Critics and Netflix fans alike are raving about it, heralding Paco Plaza, it's director, as a genius for creating what is being dubbed 'the scariest horror movie ever'..

MORE: Telling the story of a young girl, who has to raise her younger siblings as her mother is absent, it takes familiar horror tropes and adds a dose of reality..

Young Veronica and her friends take a break from looking after the siblings and mess about with the Ouija board during a solar eclipse - worse time, who knew? Trying to summon the spirit of a dead friend, they accidentally disturb the spirit of her dead father - and then something or rather someone else...

AND there is a blind nun.
 Nothing scarier than that..

WHILE VERONICA is being said to be based on a true story, there is some loose playing with facts to create an intense horror flick: The events all took place in 1992 when a young girl in Vallecas, south Madrid, was briefly hospitalised and died after dabbling with a ouija board.

 The story begins with three friends playing with a Ouija board and ends three days later with Jose Pedro Negri, a police detective who entered a house to find it full of strange smells and noises.

 It is said to be the only time the word ‘unexplained’ marks a police file...

Nostalgia and the beauty of STRANGER THINGS' music

This song, KIDS from the STRANGER THINGS soundtrack, has a melancholy but mesmerizing tone..It reminds me of a less incredulous time. It spawns memories in the nostalgic portion of my brain to form—glimpses of my past, my childhood, my friendships, my parents singing me to sleep ..
It is the soundtrack to nostalgia, in a sense.

There is something magical about most of STRANGER THINGS. But this song, as of late, has become a strange addiction… And as much as I hate the scourge of nostalgia, this song does nothing but open up more of the total recalls ..
