Rob Zombie's version of Halloween has its official trailer up. Looks okay to me, and yes, it still has that creepy piano music.

I was initially very skeptical when I heard they were remaking Halloween, but after seeing House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, I'll trust Rob Zombie to do some good.

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.

I have always thought Zombie had a great eye for horror directing, but he needed a screenwriter, as his writing does not always match his vision.

Devils' Rejects was an improvement over House of 1000 Corpses, which I only really liked for the last 20 minutes, even though that part was retconned out in Rejects.

Halloween is one of my top 2 or 3 favorite horror flicks ever, so he is treading on (un)holy ground here. But the trailer looks decent enough. We will see.

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

Malcolm McDowell is the perfect bit of casting, plus they kept the theme. Zombie hasn't quite won me over as a director yet but I'm willing to give this a shot. I'm in.

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.

As far as I can tell, his last performance was as Jed Bartlet's priest in the West Wing episode Take This Sabbath Day. Not a bad way to go out, and I had no idea he was almost 90 when he did it.
