Tom Atkins Talks Halloween 3D

Tom Atkins Talks Halloween 3DEver since news broke of Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier reteaming to bring us Halloween 3D, we’ve been hoping and praying that the film gets made because we believe this duo have the chops to get the Halloween franchise back on the track that it needs to be on.

Unfortunately there’s been a bit of turmoil along the way, but that hasn’t stopped the legendary Tom Atkins from talking a bit about his character returning to the franchise to finally come face-to-face with The Shape.

During an interview with Fangoria regarding his latest film (which will also be for Farmer and Lussier) Drive Angry, in which he’ll play Cap — the captain of the Oklahoma State Troopers, Atkins revealed the following about his role in the highly anticipated sequel: [He would be playing] “a shrink in a mental hospital that Laurie [Scout Taylor-Compton] is in with a bunch of other girls who have been up to no good. I’m trying to help them find a way to the light.”

And who better to do so? Just the presence of Atkins in the flick would be a great nod to the highly underrated and bastardized Halloween III: Season of the Witch and for our money finally getting a confrontation between Atkins and Myers would be worth the price of admission alone!

Stay tuned, and keep your fingers crossed!

    every one of your guy’s comments on this page have been great and funny, Plus i’ve eaten duck before, skin is thick, too much bone

  • Gus Bjork

    Ah, never mind.

  • Floydian Trip

    The Season of the Witch is all kinds of bad. Every scene is laughable.

  • Rottenjesus

    Tom Atkins vs. Michael Myers = BEST GODDAMN MOVIE EVER.

    Terminal can eat a duck. Yeah, you heard what I said.

    • Floydian Trip

      I’d hope Tom Atkins can get his ass kicked better than he can act.

    • Terminal

      Eat a duck? I’ve eaten chickens, but I don’t think about eating ducks.

      • Floydian Trip

        Roast duck is amazing.

        • Terminal

          Ducks are too cute to eat, personally. It’s why I stopped eating dogs.

          • Floydian Trip

            It’s a good thing deer are so damn ugly then.

          • Terminal

            Deer are yummy, but not reindeer.

          • Floydian Trip

            I’ve got a plastic reindeer.

          • Terminal

            Is that a euphemism?

          • Floydian Trip

            No, it’s in the garage.

          • Terminal

            Yep definitely a euphemism.

          • Floydian Trip

            I call it Bob and like to punch it in the face when I get angry.

          • Rottenjesus

            That’s what I call fowl behavior.

  • Masked Slasher

    I don’t think anybody outside of Rob Zombie himself thinks the series should be continued in the direction it was heading in.

    I know this will have to be a sequel to those movies, but if they got back to the spirit of the original series, I would be fine with that.

    Plus, I’ll pay to see anything with Atkins in it.

  • DavidFullam

    Dammit! When we will they do the right thing and bring back Kung Fu Rap Stars to this franchise?!

  • Heather Buckley

    Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (old school) is always anticipated by me.

    • RingoJ

      I agree, tis quality.

  • Terminal

    Halloween 3 is highly anticipated? Am I missing something?

    • Uncle Creepy

      To have a Myer’s movie back in true form? Yeah, that’s pretty highly anticipated

      • Terminal

        But we don’t know it will be Michael back in true form, yet. So until I see a trailer or pictures, I remain firmly skeptical.

        • LifeMi

          Agreed. I want to be excited about it, but after everything we’ve been subjected to in the last 4 or 5 Halloween films, it’s hard to be anything but skeptical.

          • Terminal

            Agreed LifeMi.
