New Halloween poster revealed
Is there any bigger news this week than Blumhouse revealing that simple, yet stunning poster for this October’s new Halloween? Between Twitter and Facebook I’ve surprisingly come across very little negativity about this new reboot/direct sequel to the original film.

It’s lame, but at least we got three killer seasons of Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and company especially after such a long gap since Army of Darkness. No one lost a step and the show did nothing to sully the cult classic status of the original three films.
