A few days ago we heard Rob Zombie lament his experiences on the HALLOWEEN films and also about his aborted take on THE BLOB. Today, the director is making waves of a different sort, saying that he won't be making another horror movie for a good long while.
In an interview with the Phoenix New Times, Zombie is asked if he ever plans on doing a monster movie (given his fondness for the Universal horror flicks of the 30s). Zombie's response:
No. I'm not really thinking of doing anything . . . Lords of Salem is my last sort of horror-genre related film for a really long time."
I know some of you won't be shedding any tears over that particular statement...
Also of interest: Zombie talks about his favorite films (from his own catalogue):
I thought Devil's Rejects was my most complete vision at that moment in time. And then I really loved Halloween II; a lot of Halloween fans had a problem with it; but I really loved the movie. And now Lords of Salem I really love. It's either Devil's Rejects or Lords of Salem, though, I think, because they both came from a really original place that wasn't based on anything that had been created before.
Feel free to discuss Zombie's departure from the horror genre in the comment section below.
