Before H20, Dimension Studios hired Kevin Williamson to usher Halloween into the fast-paced world of post-Scream horror. And who better for the job than the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer scribe himself?
The Revenge of Laurie Strode treatment written by Williamson would provide the general foundation for H20’s plot, but the story itself still stands on its own as an interesting canceled Halloween sequel.
Grady Hendrix also talks about his new novel The Final Girl Support Group (out July 13th via Berkley Books). The novel follows a community of middle-aged women who are murdered one by one, years after surviving their initial horrifying ordeals.
Lastly, Josh and Grady dig up the dirt on several other canceled entries like Halloween H2K, Halloween 3000, Halloween Retribution, and MichaelMyers.Com.
