The future of Micheal Myers and why the market is ready for his return!

Today, it seems like all we get from Hollywood, in regards to horror movies, are zombies and paranormal garbage( on a side note, when I say paranormal movies I am talking about anything to do with ghost, spirits, or anything by that nature). We can’t blame the studios for giving us a large number of these movies because they cost very little to make and the studios almost always makes a profit off these movies. However, I think that these paranormal and zombie movies are living on borrowed time. Why? It’s an economic concept called the Law of Diminishing Returns. For those of you that are not familiar with this concept it basically says that the more of a good that you consume, the less satisfaction you get from the good. With this concept applied to movies, people will start demanding something different from movie studios and they will listen. The question now is what kind of horror movies should they give to the movie audience? The answer, Halloween! Now bringing back slasher movies may not be the long-term answer and it might not be a popular one with fans, but a good way to test the market is to bring back Michael Myers. Not only would this be an old but fresh type of horror movie that we do not get anymore, but Michael Myers is a brand that has loyal customers. A Halloween movie can be cheap to make and it will undoubtedly make a profit for movie studios. Even the sequel to the horrible, atrocious remake made 38.5 million with only a budget of 15 million. We all know that sequels tend to do better at the box office, but a sequel to one of the worst movies ever made more than doubled its production budget at the box office. Let that one sink in for a second. However, not much is know about the current state of the Halloween franchise besides that Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes has the rights to Micheal Myers. For those that do not know Michael Bay is responsible for the reboots of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th, but it’s safe to say that we will see Micheal Myers make his glorious return to the big screen at some point and time.
