When Don Shanks got the job of stunt coordinator for the 1989 sequel Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers he also became the new man behind the infamous white mask of horror's most hallowed killer, bringing back to life the big screen's greatest cinematic terror while exposing a new degree of humanity to The Shape.

Halloween franchise producer Malek Akkad talked this week about the upcoming film Halloween Returns, indicating that there have been studio troubles recently that have kept production on the highly anticipated movie delayed so far.

Akkad tells Daily Dead, "I have to say, and this is somewhat new news—but unfortunately things happen in Hollywood where you have issues with studios and different variables—we’ve had to take a step back and now we’re trying to refigure this beast that is the new Halloween. So there is a bit of a delay with this sequel now.

Among the highlights of this summer's massive Halloween franchise reunion at Flashback Weekend in Chicago was meeting the very cool and talented Stacey Nelkin, who was kind enough to give us her memories of making Halloween III: Season of the Witch and how the most controversial of all the sequels as recently come into its own and is now finding a great deal of much overdue respect.

[Review] 'Tales of Halloween' is Full Bag of Treats

Tales of Halloween is the must-see new Halloween movie this year, an anthology packed with 10 short films from 11 of horror’s hottest directors, all set on the same night in the same town, celebrating everything that we love most about our favorite holiday.

The wild fun begins with the voice of Adrienne Barbeau coming out of The Fog, literally, followed by a retro animated sequence that depicts a spooky children’s popup book brought to life over the opening credits, set to an instantly catchy original theme composed for the film.

[Interview] Dick Warlock Talks Heroes, Villains, and Hollywood (Part 3)

I have now hung out with legendary stuntman Dick Warlock three times this year, and while I will always be a fan in awe whenever in his presence, I dare say we have ventured into an actual friendship.

I say this because I know things about the man that I don’t believe a casual blogger looking for a quick interview for easy views would likely have the time or access to learn. I know things like how Warlock hates to fly and instead drives to any of his convention appearances because he has trouble getting through security without dropping his pants and every time he takes is pictures along they have to open the boxes and then they all want autographs. I know he is always accompanied by his wife Cat, and I know he hates to use the cell phone for anything other than communicating a message of importance because he doesn’t feel like it is a tool meant for conversation when you where hearing devices. I know from going out to eat dinner with him and Cat that he always has to be the one driving the car, even when it’s a rental. 

[Interview] 'Halloween 2-6' Maestro Alan Howarth on Composing Fear

Alan Howarth has performed the music for half of the existing 10 films in the Halloween franchise, having worked alongside John Carpenter on the first two sequels before taking over the sonic reigns entirely for Halloween 4 through 6, making him perhaps the top authority on the signature sounds of these beloved movies.

When I met Howarth earlier this year, at the massive Halloween reunion that took place during Flashback Weekend in Chicago, we discussed working with Carpenter on 1981’s Halloween II and its 1982 follow up Halloween III: Season of the Witch, bringing his own style to the soundtracks of the Thorn Trilogy, and how he is ready and eager to come back for the upcoming Halloween Returns.

[Review] 'Night of the Demons' is Perfect Halloween Party Soundtrack

The ultimate playlist for the most killer Halloween party has arrived with the far too long overdue release of the Night of the Demons original soundtrack by Dennis Michael Tenney, available now for the first time not only on CD but vinyl and cassette as well, from Lunaris Records

I absolutely love Night of the Demons as one of my all time favorite Halloween movies, an annual must-watch every October at my house, and it always brings great joy to hear those classic opening notes to the film's main theme, playing over that awesome animated opening credits sequence. It's a warm and safe reminder that my favorite season is upon us and it's time to party, and blasting the familiar stomping build up over the big speakers at home this week when I popped my CD gave me chills with excitement.
