Zombie is protested

01.25.2007by: Scott Carmichael

Now here's an interesting turn of events. Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN began filming today, during which he was protested against. Except it wasn't church groups at all but, get this, angry fans!

If you click here you can read the article that Fangoria has put up about Zombie having his filming protested by angry fans. Even as I write this, I still can't believe that it has happened.

Fangoria says that fans of the Carpenter original found out where Zombie would be shooting and began to protest the making of the remake .The protesting went even so far that some signs claimed that Zombie was "raping" a classic. Does this seem a little bizarre to anyone else? I know that in the past I've joked about protesting sequels and remakes, but the fact that someone actually has done it is incredible.

Truthfully I don't know how to feel about this. I mean I'm all for the protesting and the fact that they should be making original movies instead of remakes, but I also think Zombie should be allowed to make his film. (however bad it may be.)

Just thought it was worth a mention. No word yet on what Zombie has done in response to this, if anything, but I must say that this is one of the most entertaining pre-productions ever. If you want to keep watch on Zombie's progress you can check out his blog here. You can also click here to check out a MySpace page dedicated to stopping Zombie from making this film.

Finally why don't some of you shoot some bullets below and let me know what you all think about this situation.
