I’ve been meaning to write something about not only this year’s forthcoming prequel, but also my unabashed love for Carpenter’s classic, for quite some time. I’ve been sidetracked, but quite honestly, I’m not sure what I could say that hasn’t already been said before. If you love Carpenter’s original, you likely don’t need me to tell you how to feel about the flick, or the sequel/prequel, but the trailer doesn’t look like a total travesty. It looks like they tried to do it right. It will never be the original, but then again, what could?
Have a gander at the trailer below. Doesn’t look half bad at all. I’m pretty freakin’ excited about it. Sorry bout any commercials, don’t know how to skip those.
