    I hate the idea of a remake of Halloween, but was happy to hear Rob Zombie was taking over. I have liked all his movies so far, but then the script leaked out, and with talks of masturbation to dead animals, and Laurie Strode only playing a small part in it... lets jsut say I'm not so sure about this movie anymore.

    About the pic though, I think it looks good. Classic look, with a little bit more bad ass and evil thrown in. Maybe it's just dirty becasue it's near the end of the movie after he has gotten beaten up a bit.

    Anyways, not too sure about the movie, but I think that pic is in the right direction. Don't know why they don't just do a sequal though? Zombie could have still re-invented the franchise that way, a new character for him to stalk after. Sounds like they are pretty much doing that, accept they are calling her Laurie Strode, and bringing back Loomis who wihtout Pleasance will not be Loomis, so why bother!?

    I guess this is the first remake that I REALLY do not think needs to be done.

    obviously Michael works out, he must have natural healing powers like Wolverine.

    The mask screams next gen horror like the new leatherface masks etc.

    I will probably see this movie, but only for curiosity's sake. I want to give Zombie the benefit of the doubt, but it is getting tougher and tougher.The Michael Myers mythos would be a lot scarier if Michael were to come from a normal everyday family. Having his mother as a stripper with an abusive alcoholic boyfriend, living in a shitty white trash environment, etc. etc., is an overdone concept and has no mystery behind it. It would be much better to have him as a regular , sort of withdrawn little kid ( maybe a little angst), who just one day commits a brutal act of murder and grows up to be a living embodiement of evil. The unexplained is so much more terrifying than the over analyzed, and a much more effective device in a horror movie. This absolutely unnecessary remake would serve better if it took a few notes from the original classic's 1979 movie novelization by Curtis Richards. THAT is some scary shit. Rob Zombie's other movies were okay and entertaining, but for such a huge horror fan as he is I expected something a little more groundbreaking and original.I don't think we're going to get much else out of his latest directorial effort, but I will reserve judgement until after I've seen the finished product. I saw Joe Bob Briggs at a convention once and someone asked him what he thought of all of the recent horror movie remakes. His reply was simple and as true as it gets, in a roudabout way why fix something that aint broke. Why not remake a movie that wasn't done right the first time ? Oh well, as far as the "new look" of Michael Myers , nothing new there. It looks about how he looked in part 8, so it's not really impressive or un- impressive.

    I have faith in Zombie. That's my only comment for now.

    Exactly my position on the matter. Less is often More.

    I'm not familiar with the novelization...what did it reveal?

    More of what I was talking about (less is more), young Michael has some conversations about the boogeyman with his grandmother (while he shows her his clown costume) , there is a prologue with a brutal murder during the festival of Samhain,just some nice details that present terror without over analyzing things.You should really try to get a copy of this book, it is definitely worth it.

    Yeah I agree, I think it was a lot scarier when the family is just your average day family living in the suburbs, and then out of no where their son goes crazy and hacks up his sister. It makes the pure evil mythos to him a lot scarier then just saying, yeah he grew up a fucked up life so it only makes sense that he'd become a serial killer.

    I'm not going to judge the movie before I've seen it, but I really don't like that , and I still don't know why they didn't just make a sequal instead of a remake. Then everyone wouldn't be so judgemental, and for good reason. Why fuck around with one of the best horror movies made for no reason what so ever, instead of just making a straight out sequal. People would flcok in droves no matter what, a Halloween sequal done by Rob Zombie. But remaking it, and changing just about everything, doesn't make sense. Are people going to be like, "oh its a remake, have to see this", as upposed to "shit! that sequal looks good!"

    :lol: I didn't even notice either of them! :lol: I just assumed he reposted the original picture for some reason. That's classic! I see that someone is going to be a shoe-in for the next contest!
