Derek Hill to make $500 Halloween remake

Michael’s back and on a budget…

It seems everybody’s favourite Shatner-faced slasher Michael Myers is set to make YET ANOTHER reappearance in Halloween: Vengeance. 
Forget the likes of John Carpenter, Rob Zombie and Patrick Lussier… it’s Derek Hill’s turn to flog the Halloween franchise.
But who is this Derek Hill we hear you cry? Well, he’s a 30 year-old indie filmmaker who’s produced an impressive 22 films on a minimal budget.
Hill’s vision is to reinterpret Carpenter’s classic on a budget of $500, using a handful of local actors and locations.
He'll then pitch the finished product, Halloween: Vengeance, to Dimension Films.
According to Hill “This is a fan film and a tribute piece to pay homage to this particular series of films.”
Hill claims to be a huge fan of the Halloween movies and hopes that his version will be the new instalment in the series. 
So will the bigwigs at Dimension listen to the ‘little guy’ and give him a chance to make this next chapter of Halloween a success? 
Who knows, but keep your eyes on this one, because it may well kick-start Derek Hill's career.

      Having seen the trailer for the new Hellraiser movie, which looked like it had the same budget and quality of actors, I'm not holding out hope.

      Having read your comment chaosdefined I thought I'd have a look for that Hellraiser trailer. Found one for something called Hellraiser: Revelation but not sure if it is the official movie or not? Whichever may be the case you are correct - truly, truly awful. Wish that the next generation of film makers could actually formulate an original idea too, instead of music vid directors tearing the a**e out of movies that were good enough left alone.

      Yeah. Hellraiser Revelations is an official part of the Hellraiser franchise. It looks utter s**te.

      @dalidab1982 - When the first Hellraiser came out, no-one would have known about Pinhead (he wasn't even called Pinhead until the second film anyway), so when watching the film the lack of his character shouldn't have meant anything. That is, of course, unless you didn't watch them in chronological order. It's like saying the first Friday the 13th sucked because there was no Jason doing the killing. Watching them in order, it won't matter, but if you start at (for example) part 6, then of course you're going to wonder what the fuss is about.

      I quite liked Halloween 3 and have always seen it as a standalone movie. It was truly weird though

      Produced 22 films? Where are these films? Actually I'm not interested. The slasher horror is just dead to me. The scares are the same and ideas are the same just simply regurgitated. Rob Zombie didn't do a bad job rebooting it but that was only a few years ago. I blame the "reboot" of Spiderman, everybody is now thinking it's OK to continue down this road of endless reboots of the same thing over and over without letting the last outing of the franchise breath or have any sort of life. It'll be interesting to see what $500 does for him but I can't see it standing the test of time more so than the original, which is often the case.

      Oh come on! Forget Halloween and Hellraiser; horror movies are so out! What are these guys thinking? I mean what we really need is a Twilight reboot - and when's the Harry Potter remake happening?! It's been months since that ended now! Come on Hollywood, get it together. :-|

      I'm personally rooting for a Back to the Future reboot, a Indiana Jones reboot and a remake of The Goonies with Justin Bieber being duplicated via CGI so that he can play Mikey, Mouth, Data and (donning a fat suit) Chunk. They could get Dirk Kuyt to play Sloth and Susan Boyle as Mama Fratelli. How's that for a slice of fried gold?
