halloween2 Two horror flicks are out this weekend and unfortunately I don't have reviews for you because there were no press screenings for either. Usually this means the studios know the critics will tear the movie to shreds so there is no point in reviewing. However, I am a huge fan of horror so I would've been more receptive. Nonetheless, this weekend is the grim reaper versus the legendary Michael Myers.

First, Mr. Myers is still slashing after all the years. This time around, horror guru Rob Zombie is remaking the sequel to Halloween , which is a follow up to the John Carpenter original. Mike returns to his hometown to terrorize people due to a past he cannot let go of.

Final Destination is the fourth installment of the franchise and a 3-D version.  According to Warner Bros., the plot is:

On what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O'Bannon (Bobby Campo) has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapse on him. When he comes out of this grisly nightmare Nick panics, persuading his girlfriend, Lori (Shantel VanSanten), and their friends, Janet (Haley Webb) and Hunt (Nick Zano), to leave... escaping seconds before Nick's frightening vision becomes a terrible reality. Thinking they've cheated death, the group has a new lease on life, but unfortunately for Nick and Lori, it is only the beginning. As his premonitions continue and the crash survivors begin to die one-by-one — in increasingly gruesome ways — Nick must figure out how to cheat death once and for all before he, too, reaches his final destination."


Which one will you watch this weekend? My vote goes to Michael Myers to top Final Destination .
