Set The Story In Haddonfield
Unlike the Friday the 13th films (which take place at Camp Crystal Lake) or A Nightmare on Elm Street (which has the freedom to move around inside of a dream space), the Halloween films are heavily predicated on their uniquely suburban setting in the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois. The town has a deep connection to the evil acts committed by Michael Myers as a boy, and the quintessentially middle America setting has helped shape the tone of almost every Halloween film to date. By contrast, H20 moved the action to Northern California, and while it was a breath of fresh air at the time, the new Halloween cannot follow the same formula. After almost a full decade-long absence from the silver screen, the Halloween franchise needs to set its next (and possibly final) entry in its rightful home.
