Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

ROB ZOMBIE to RETURN for another HALLOWEEN

halloween-big-posterAlthough there hasn’t been an official announcement, shocktilyoudrop is reporting that ROB ZOMBIE will return to direct a sequel to his remake of HALLOWEEN. French directors, Alexander Bustilio and Julien Muary, apparently were involved with the sequel but recently left the project. While Zombie’s re-imagining was financially successful, I’m still surprised that Dimension films and producer Malek Akkad would want him back.

Although Zombie’s Halloween has its supporters, many including myself feel that his version of John Carpenter’s classic original was a misfire considering the source material. Beside his usual interjection of trailer trash characters, the film was way too lopsided as the Michael Myers character received way too much screen time. I also feel Zombies brutally violent style, especially involving female characters, is also a bit much for this specific franchise. It will be interesting to see where he goes with a follow-up as his version left little wiggle room for moving things forward, especially with the Dr. Loomis character played by Malcolm McDowell. Like Michael Myers, this appears to be one franchise that will never die!

  1. I agree that Rob Zombie does end to go overboard when it comes to violence involving the female characters…just watch the Devils Rejects, but I really enjoyed his Halloween remake. I felt just as terribied watching it at 38 years old as I did as a little tyke watching the original.
