Considering that the likes of The Exorcist, Scream, Evil Dead, Psycho and even Friday The 13th [albeit in a totally different form to the movie series] made their way to the small screem, it’s perhaps surprising that Halloween has yet to make it – though apparently the idea has been floated around for some time.

Well, speaking with ‘Bloody Disgusting’, producer Malek Akkad seemed to hint that one could finally be coming.

“When we started doing it… this was in development about a decade ago. At the time, I think the thought was we don’t want to cannibalize the theatrical. Let’s keep it as a theatrical event movie. If that starts flowing down, we would address TV. Nowadays, we all know, TV is pulling out ahead of theatrical in a way that surprised everybody, certainly me”.

Akkad also mentioned that the series would be about Michael Myers, though I personally would prefer it if they kept The Shape to the big screen and for TV did something like have a different Halloween themed story each episode –  which is what the movie franchise might have been if Halloween 3: Season Of The Witch hadn’t had such a poor reception.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
