Director and co-writer David Gordon Green’s Halloween held its official premiere to a packed house this past Wednesday, October 17th at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, and HalloweenMovies was there to document the buzzed-about event forty years in the
As we all know, Blumhouse’s sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween hit theaters today. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, and she does so armed with a screenplay written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and helmed by Green. Elsewhere in the horror universe, writer-director Rob Zombie is currently editing the third entry in his Firefly Family series House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects with Three From Hell.
Needless to say, we’re excited for both of these upcoming films. But part of our minds can’t help but wonder what would have happened had Blumhouse not snagged up the rights to Michael Myers and Halloween and if Rob Zombie decided to make a third entry in his Halloween series instead of Three From Hell.
And thus we came up with this article: What Would Rob Zombie’s Halloween 3 Look Like? I’m excited to get into this topic as, unlike many a horror fans out there, I was pleased with what Zombie did with Carpenter’s characters. Especially Halloween II, which I consider to be one of the best horror films of the past decade. So with all of this and that spat, let’s get into the meat of this here article. Follow me!
First of all, let’s start by getting this ridiculous bit of business out of the way, Laurie Strode survived Halloween II. Loomis survived as well. And of course, Michael Myers. Depending on the cut of the film you favor, Halloween II gave these characters different fates, but let’s go ahead and get all the crap out of the way – all three survived.
As silly as it might seem, Zombie has pulled these tricks before as Michael survived Zombie’s original Halloween after getting shot point blank in the face. Zombie even commented on this during the sequel’s audio commentary saying “What are you gonna do?” He’s also bringing back The Firefly Family after bringing them down in a literal hail of gunfire at the closing moments of The Devil’s Rejects.
Simple fact: It’s not a stretch to think he would have just hit the reset button, given Loomis, Laurie, and Michael a new set of scars, and went about closing out his trilogy. Let’s move on.
Now that we know Zombie would bring back Michael, Laurie, and Loomis, what have they been up to since the finale of Halloween II? It’s been almost ten years since that film hit screens back in 2009 so let’s go ahead and say this sequel opens ten years after that movie. What about the others that survived Zombie’s first two films? More specifically, what has Brad Dourif’s Sheriff Brackett been up to for the past ten years?
It turns out Brackett has retired and taken up Laurie, Michael, and Loomis as hobbies since Halloween II. Laurie Strode has been locked up in a mental hospital since she went crazy and all Michael Myers-evil after the events of the second film – but here’s the kicker – in the years since Laurie has gone back to acting normal. Brackett doesn’t buy it, but others do and let Laurie go. Before that happens though, we see Brackett has been visiting Michael and Loomis in the years since as well.
Michael is back to being catatonic in Smith’s Grove like in Zombie’s original Halloween, along with Laurie, and Loomis has gotten himself locked up in maximum security prison. He did this by killing his old assistant, and he did this because he now believes that the only way to protect himself from Michael (and Laurie’s) eventual escape/release is to be locked deep behind bars. So Laurie is now released and – go figure – breaks Michael out as well. The two then set out to kill Loomis for good and always.
Speaking of Loomis, in this third film he acts as a cameo throughout most of the film, giving Brackett Silence of the Lambs Hannibal Lecter-style clues about how Michael and Laurie’s minds function and where they might be. Eventually, Brackett does some digging and finds out that Loomis murdering his assistant was all a ruse. The assistant took a big payday – to the tune of Loomis’ life savings – to fake her death and helped frame Loomis for it. If it weren’t obvious, Loomis orchestrated the whole thing.
Once Brackett uncovers this plan, he tells the powers that be and Loomis is released. Brackett then kidnaps him and forces him to act as bait to bring Laurie and Michael home for one final Halloween… In the end, Michael kills Loomis (for good this time), and Laurie would turn good again to rescue Brackett from Michael.
Michael and Laurie are killed in the process, leaving Brackett all alone with his ghosts – which include old and young Michael, Laurie, his daughter Annie, and hell let’s even throw in Sheri Moon Zombie’s Mama Myers and white pet horse while we’re at it.
Boom. Roll credits.
So that’s what we think Rob Zombie’s Halloween 3 would have looked like. What do you think of this article? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments section or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

John Carpenter has been out and about talking up a Shudder series based on this cult hit Prince of Darkness, and talking down Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Big Trouble in Little China sequel.
But today Carpenter is teasing that Dawn & War of the Planet of the Apes and Let Me In director Matt Reeves was once – or still is – working on a direct sequel to his bubblegum-chewing, kiss-kicking classic They Live.
“Well, I’m not gonna tell you about that, because it might be closer to reality than you think,” Carpenter told Den of Geek. “There was a feature film. It was a feature film called Resistance, written by, oh, the guy who did the Apes movies. Matt Reeves. But then he moved on, and so the sequel is, well, we’ll see. We’ll just have to see.”
Now I can’t quite tell if this means They Live 2 (or Resistance) is still in the works with Matt Reeves behind the scenes, but it sure sounds like there is more They Live headed our way soon. Let’s hope Halloween is a mega-hit, like Stephen King’s IT, and we have a rush of Carpenter projects as well.
