Finally, a brief note on the state of this website…
I, unfortunately, had to say goodbye to my cat of fourteen years earlier this month, following his health declining since mid-August. That largely kept me away from my websites, and it’s taken me some time to recover from that loss. While this site is largely up-to-date (minus the plethora of captures I still need to go through), there are still a few pages I would like to fully finish. Alongside today’s update, I did go back through and redo the featured images for each prior post, so that every photo is the same size and aspect ratio.
I thank everyone for their patience.
3,092 captures from Grandview, U.S.A. and 226 captures from Beverly Hills Chihuahua have been added to the gallery! Check them out by clicking the links below.

From now through October 31, John Carpenter’s Halloween – along with and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers – is returning to drive-in theatres.
Speaking with HalloweenMovies.com, Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills producer Ryan Freimann offered of the news, “Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures have partnered with CineLife Entertainment in order to bring Halloween to audiences safely during this time of pandemic, and drive-in theater owners seem excited to be booking it as the Halloween season is right around the corner.”
For the 2020 drive-in engagement, the digital print of Halloween has been restored and remastered under the supervision of cinematographer Dean Cundey. Much like it did in 1978, the film’s rollout has started small and will grow throughout the upcoming weeks.

Unfortunate, but expected news, has broke today. Though the film was reportedly finished, Universal has officially postponed the release of Halloween Kills until October 15, 2021, and Halloween Ends to October 14, 2022.
In a statement on his Twitter, John Carpenter announces the delay, while also revealing the film will get an IMAX release next year. He then went on to share a brief clip of footage from the film, suggesting that it will pick up directly from the ending of the 2018 film
