House of 1000 Corpses is exactly why I don't trust Rob Zombie. All the changes they are making are the exact reasons that the original Halloween was awesome and didn't suck like typical horror cookie cutter garbage these days.
Whatever happens, we're going to get a different version of the Halloween mythos. After two decades of limp cookie-cutter sequels, I welcome a refresh.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Exactly - it's not like they could fuck Halloween anymore than the last two sequels did. I'm all for a legit fan reinventing a movie he clearly loves. And Zombie's movies haven't been great, persay, but they've sure as shit been interesting and they've sure as shit been his vision and that's more than enough to put you head and shoulders over most horror schlockmasters these days.
It clearly wasn't on the level of Ferrell's classics (Anchorman, Old School, Talladega Nights), but it was still a fun little movie. Going by the 'frat pack' ranking scale, it was about on the level of Dodgeball.
