Just catching up on this thread. This quote from McBride:
ďI think weíre just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original. It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasnít corny. And it wasnít turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldnít be killedó that stuff to me isnít scary. I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen. I think itís much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while youíre taking the trash out as opposed to someone who canít be killed pursuing you.Ē
I agree that it is scarier to have some evil lurking in the shadows than an unstoppable killer. His supernatural aspect did get to be too much, but Carpenter introduced that element in the first film. No man can be shot in the head and the body several times and get up and walk away. No man could, but the Boogeyman could. There was clearly something evil about Michael but it's beyond rational explanation.
