OFFICIAL: ROB ZOMBIE TO DIRECT HALLOWEEN SEQUEL

Ok, let me preface this by saying that I, at one time, was a huge fan of Rob Zombie.  White Zombie is still one of my all-time favourite bands…EVER (there are two number one slots, WZ and Creedence Clearwater Revival), but he’s just been letting me down lately.  Three reasons, Educated Horses (shittiest metal album from Zombie ever), the Halloween Remake, and Halloween Remake 2 (though it hasn’t come out).

So let’s talk about the last reason, Variety dropped the bomb that RZ’s going to be directing and writing Halloween 2 (which they can’t actually title it unless they want legal issues with Paramount).  Ok, so yeah, it’s not fair to give the Halloween Remake Sequel (for now being titled only H2…stupid) any sort of shit because it hasn’t been made yet, but, I mean, come on, really?  First off, he said he had no intention in any way of doing a sequel, so he’s gone back on that, something to do with an assload of cash no doubt, Tyler Mane is going to be back as the man behind the mask, no surprise there.  I sort of hope they don’t bring back Scout Taylor Compton, though I think she’s contractually obligated and they’d have to explain that out or just outright ignore it, but she just thouroughly was a big pile of shittastic in the first flick. Horrible actress…horrible.

RZ’s mentioned in his blog a bit about it in that he’s not going to do a full-on remake of the original part 2, so, I wonder what he’s going to do.  I dunno, I don’t have much else to say about it at this point but I predict it’s going to suck. So, here’s a teaser poster and some teaser art from the flick, nabbed from the boils ‘n ghouls over at Shock Till You Drop:

  1. So….shouldn’t your original movie have to be good to warrant a sequel? I guess its true that money talks. Though the original remake was a flaming piece of shit, I guess the initial buzz about a Halloween remake coupled with Rob Zombie’s name in there and a few enthusiasts to boot were enough to ensure a sequel. Perhaps if no one cares to watch this movie Rob will get the idea.

    Sorry to hear about your job, man. I’m sure that something will come along though. Probably end up being better than geek squad anyway. Have you thought of any places to apply at yet?
