New 'Halloween' Almost Had A Completely Different Beginning

Dr. Loomis the psychiatrist played by Donald Pleasence was a very important part of the original Halloween movie. He played a role in four more of the Halloween movies before he sadly passed on in 1995.

During the developmental stages of the newly released Halloween, David Gordan Green and his co-writers Jeff Fradley and Danny Mcbride originally wanted to put Loomis back on screen to start off the film. Using a look-alike to recreate the end of the classic 1978 Halloween film.

“There was a more involved Loomis notion in a couple of drafts that we did,” says Green. “At one point in the script, we had an opening setup that included the end of the original Halloween in a kind of aerial restaged version. Our art director, coincidentally, on this movie, looks exactly like Donald Pleasence. So, we were like, We’ll just get him to do it, and we’ll do this thing, and we’ll recreate it. Like, Who’s so lucky on their own movie set to have a look-alike of the guy from 40 years ago? [Laughs] It was actually Carpenter’s idea, saying, ‘You don’t need to get people up to speed like that. Just drop them in on your movie.'”

David Gordan Green did see to it that Loomis was featured in the new Halloween film. Colin Mahan, a comedian, was cast to mimic Loomis's voice in the movie.

“We had a voice-a-like, who was a stand-up comic, that used to do Donald Pleasence impersonations,” says Green. “One of our executive producers had just heard it randomly and said, ‘You’ve got to check this guy out.’ We thought, maybe just a little illustration [of Loomis], like one of the courtroom drawings, courtroom sketch, and then a voice-a-like to give us some consideration of the history and the character.”

According to strong women, men who make an effort to keep a woman happy are the sexiest. She’ll be attracted to such a man, admire his initiatives, and appreciate his persistence.

Also, a strong woman wants a man who doesn’t back down when he faces obstacles in a relationship. She wants a man who’s willing to move out of his comfort zone to make her feel safe and loved.

She needs a consistent man and is willing to take things slow. A partner who understands that for good things to happen, they need time and perseverance. And once he’s patient, he’ll be able to bring down the barriers and boundaries she has created in her life.

She wants a man who reminds her that there’s no need to burden herself with everyone’s problems. That it’s healthy and okay to relax and let things be. And it’s good to enjoy life and her achievements without worrying about the things she can’t control.

She needs a strong-hearted man who reassures her that there’s no need to be hard on herself. She doesn’t need to strive for perfection all the time. She is good enough.

A strong woman wants a partner who understands that she’ll never ask him for assistance. She needs a lover who is willing to offer his help even without waiting for her approval. Although it might be unfamiliar to him, he needs to understand that she has been reliant on herself all most all her adult life.

But once he breaks through into her heart, life with her will be happy and simple. He’ll make her a better person, and be the man she has been waiting for.

She wants a man who understands that she can stand on her own even when he’s with her. But this doesn’t make you less valuable to her. She still wants you in her life.
