In a lot of ways, Hush is my Halloween.” He continued: “I found my notes for that very brief period of time when I was trying to come up with a take on Halloween because Jason had said, ‘Hey, if you want to do this we can probably figure something out.’ I’m glad that I didn’t and so glad it did not come to me because the only note that I had scribbled over three days of brainstorming was ‘Dr. Loomis a woman?’ That’s as far as I got on Halloween.” “They made the right call in not trusting the franchise to me,” he jokes. “In a lot of ways, Hush was my riff on the beautiful, simplicity, silence, tension, suspense that Halloween is. All of my love for Carpenter’s film is poured into that.” Finally, he added: “If Hush didn’t exist, and I was doing Halloween, it would look a lot like Hush.” Can you imagine having a female Dr. Loomis? Would you have been excited at the time if Mike Flanagan went ahead and revived Halloween? Let us know how you feel in our comments section below.
