    I agree. What made Michael terrifying was what makes every wanton killer terrifying: the fact that his motivation is opaque. We cannot understand their compulsion to kill. I always found this much more frightening than characters like Freddy Kruger who seemed to derive some type of S&M sexual pleasure from killing.

    I'm ready to take the film on its own and not force the original on it. We've been faced with new Michaels before: senior citizen Michael, astrology-powered Michael, fast-moving Michael, reality-TV contestant Michael, etc. I don't think making his mom a stripper and giving him a few lines is more than we can handle.

    and the trailer will be attached to Grindhouse "most likely" according to Zombie.

    See what I'm going to do is just watch this movie as a brand new slasher flick with some similarities to a previous slasher flick. It's not going to be Halloween it's just going to be Rob Zombie does a slasher. I'm not a huge Zombie fan (yet) but I think he can give us a decent slasher flick to enjoy. As long as I don't waste my time comparing it to the original I figure it should be good enough. Should at least be vicious.

    Oh yeah, the new Michael looks alright to me. Won't have the same effect when he emerges out of the shadows with a dirty mask but hell, maybe there won't be a scene like that anyway.

    It's just going to be a teaser, so don't expect much and let yourself down.

    I dig the new mask -- much more reminscent of the original mask used in the first two films, yet it does look too dirty for my tastes. I guess when he butchers Annie and Lynda in the remake, the blood is going to fly.

    I dig the new Laurie (Scott Taylor-Compten) -- she's reminscent of Jamie Lee Curtis without being a dead ringer. I was horrified when I heard about the remake with Zombie at the helm, but now with the casting and some pics -- it could be good, actually. I'm going to be furious if Zombie keeps the '70s grindhouse feel and keeps the white trash plot (abusive father, stripper mother) in it, though.

    If it turns out bad, well, there's always the original. :(

    Actually the reason the mask is dirty was explained earlier in the thread...

    Exactly. And I hear that Anchor Bay has released it on DVD, so maybe you can find a copy someplace. ;)

    There are three new pics up of Michael in action.

    These pics are pretty big on SPOILERS!!!, and can be seen by clicking here.

    There is one solo shot of Myers that isn't too spoilerish, so if you just want to see that shot and that shot only, click here.

    These pics are pretty damn impressive. I still have some issues about how the (back)storyline will be handled, but every new set of pics that I see on this film make me that much more stoked for it.

    Yes, it looks like it's going to be a shitfest.

    I've already seen this fucking movie, why redo it?

    Simple solution, ignore the movie and don't see it if you don't have interest.

    I just look at it as Rob being out of ideas,..already, and wanting to make an easy buck.

    I actually like the dirty mask. Doesn't bother me at all.
