31 Days of Horror: Halloween / Halloween II / Halloween III: Season of the Witch
  |  @   |  

Hello Geeks and Ghouls, Famous Monster here. Well, the day has finally come – it’s Halloween! 31 days. 64 films. I couldn’t think of a better way to put the kibosh on this epic month of movie watching than with the boogeyman himself, Michael Myers.

No, not The Love Guru Michael Myers – I’m talking about THE Michael Myers, as in the silent stalker from John Carpenter‘s 1978 classic, Halloween. Today’s final entry of 2012’s 31 Days of Horror is a triple-feature including Halloween, Rick Rosenthal‘s 1981 sequel, Halloween II, and Tommy Lee Wallace‘s 1982 cult film, Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

“Death has come to your little town, Sheriff. You can either ignore it, or you can help me stop it!”

This has yet to be confirmed, but I have received word from several notable sources that veteran actor Richard Lynch, best known for playing a wide array of heinous villains in a film and television career spanning nearly four decades, has died at the age of 76. At the moment there are no details as to the cause of his death, but we will keep you updated as we get information.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Lynch was born on February 12, 1936, as one of seven children in his family. Beginning in 1958 Lynch served in the United States Marine Corps for four years, ending his military career at the rank of Corporal. Following his stint in the Marines, Lynch returned to New York to study acting under the legendary acting teachers Uta Hagen and Lee Strasberg. He became a lifetime member of the prestigious Actors Studio in 1970 and had appeared in many stage productions on and off Broadway, including William Shakespeare’s Richard III and Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. Lynch made his feature acting debut in 1973’s Scarecrow alongside Gene Hackman and Al Pacino. Throughout the 1970’s the actor built up his resume with appearances in films like The Seven-Ups, The Happy Hooker, God Told Me To, and Deathsport and television shows such as Starsky and Hutch, Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers.

Platinum Dunes Negotiating To Take Over Producing The ‘Halloween’ Franchise

Between bouts of orchestrating giant alien robot punch-ups and fanning the rage flames of Internet trolls who will still see his movies no matter what crazy crap he pulls on them, Michael Bay is collecting moribund movie franchises like properties on the Monopoly game board. In recent weeks online news sites have been treating the in-demand blockbuster schlock master’s plans for revitalizing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series (which will now be called Ninja Turtles and the title characters will be alien in origin) like they were continuing developments in the Trayvon Martin case.

Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company are now looking the Halloween movie series to their stable of brand name cinematic properties.
