Topic: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Just picked up the latest Rue Morgue, and the interview with Sir Rob was excellent.  I loved his responses about why he chose to make a remake... because everyone said he shouldn't.  He also said he used nothing but the original movie for inspiration and leaves out the mystic crap from the sequels. 

The back cover of the mag has a lovely ad for the film, which opens in just 25 days.

I liked the "mystic crap" from the sequels.  I like mystic crap in general, but I understand why many of you don't.  That said I'm still really looking forward to seeing this movie!

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Me too!!! I have my day planned, going to savor the movie then stop at the Cold Stone Creamry for my free ice cream (filled a card).

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

I have gotta be the biggest Halloween series fan on here and I can't wait for this film to come out. I am so there when it does. I might not go the first weekend it's out cause it will be too packed but I will within the next weekend or so afterwards.

Might have an arguement from me there, huge fan and no don't think Zombie will be in the same ballpark as Carpenter. At this stage no opinion on the movie, till I have actually seen it, but have some sincere doubts about Zombie pulling this one off. If he ditches the tension and goes gore then expect a reaction of biblical poportions from me post movie viewing.

Movie opens two full days Downunder before hitting screens in the U.S big_smile I don't get to say that very often with horror flicks so thought it merited a mention.

Expecting the movie to bomb Downunder, not been a good year for the genre thus far.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

cold stone creamery ------  sooooo yummy --- and you gotta love their scary commercials.  That sounds like a perfect day! 

I think I may go on opening day.  It's crowded, but it feels so good to have that communal experience.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

i'm not excited about this. I can wait to hear what people think of it after it's release. I might get it on DVD if it's an amazing remake but right now I'm thinking it's just going to be average roll

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Gotta have faith in ol' Rob!

Be excited...be very excited.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

Don't get me wrong, I really like House of 1000 Corpses & The Devil's Rejects. I just don't want to get my hopes up too high for this, in case it's a flop.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

i agree demon, iv seen some really cool trailers for movies, and then the movie was horrible. the trailers look good, but that dosnt necacarly mean it will be a good film. i do have faith in Zombie though, and i hope he does Carpenter and Myers justice

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

all man I can't wait for this, I have full faith in Mr. Zombie. And the movie better be good, I made a deal wit the lady that If I watched Hairspray wit her she'd watch Halloween wit me. So I'm really hopin it was worth it.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

^ OMG that's really funny.  I hope she's not too squeamish - I read that there is an animal torture scene that's hard to watch.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

I also heard that there was a rape scene.  It got cut, but still.  Michael Myers raping someone?  WTF is that!?

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

^ ya that dosnt make any sense. he dosnt have any interest in anything except for killing the rest of his family and anyone who would get in the way of his goal.

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

^ mwa HA HA HA HA!

Re: count down to Zombie's Halloween

So does anyone else wonder what they are doing marketing wise for this?  I mean it's 3 weeks til the release and other than on this site I havent seen a damn thing about this anywhere.  I mentioned to some people about this film and they were like "there's a Halloween remake coming out?"  Dont know what they are waiting for to get the hype train rolling......
