After months of news droplets regarding Rob Zombie‘s new rendition of John Carpenter‘s "Halloween," we now have our very first look at some footage, and guess what? It looks a whole heck of a lot like … John Carpenter’s "Halloween."
In case you missed it over the holiday weekend, here’s where you can check out the (kinda) all-new for Rob Zombie’s "Halloween" redo. Looks like a full-on remake all the way, not unlike what you’d find in a trailer for "Dawn of the Dead," "The Amityville Horror," or (god help us if it’s as bad as) "The Fog."
Even the skeptics (like me) are pretty curious to see how the gore-lovin’ Mr. Zombie will approach the violence in his version. The original, as you’ll no doubt remember, has next to no blood whatsoever. I’m pretty curious to see a lot of things in this remake, truth be told.
August 31st is when "Halloween" hits — probably because Jigsaw owns October these days. Stars include Malcolm McDowell, Scout Taylor-Compton, Brad Dourif, Tyler Mane, and (of course) Sheri Moon-Zombie. (She’s Rebecca Pidgeon to Zombie’s David Mamet, don’t forget.) Expect a full-court press push on "Halloween" as the big summer flicks fade into the distance.
