INT: Rob Zombie

08.28.2009

While HALLOWEEN 2 didn't have an official presence at Comic-Con (no Hall H panel or anything) that doesn't mean that it's presence wasn't felt. In fact writer/director Rob Zombie was in town and was kind enough to sit down for a brief chat.

Actually it was less a brief chat and more a longer conversation. At a Con when it's the norm to get about 3 minutes of someone's time, it was awesome to be able to sit with Rob for over 10 minutes talking all kinds of stuff. Check it out below!

Yes, please repost all of these old Rob Zombie-related articles, we simply haven't got enough 'H2' coverage at the moment.

Worst Hummer commercial EVER

H2? I mean, I didn't see ONE Hummer during that whole thing!
Zzziiing!

Otherwise, I am not looking forward to the movie but that's ok.

You know you're watching too much horror when you read "Hummer" as "Hammer".

VISION!? WHAT?!

First of all, it's ridiculous to say Rob Zombie has a "vision". He brought nothing new to the Halloween remake except for a half-assed attempt at explaining Michael's "disturbing" childhood which lead him to kill (although he is already fully disturbed from the first scene we meet him ... for no apparent reason but suffering verbal abuse from his sister and mother's bf...what a pussy).

Then he re-hashed everything the old film was with a little extra "flare" -- which can just as easily be

Then he re-hashed everything the old film was with a little extra "flare" -- which can just as easily be due to the much higher budget than the original Halloween.

Devil's Rejects I can't complain about, but House of 1000 Corpses was a piece of crap. How are his films "traditional 70s horror"? Because they pick up the same cheesy-ass qualities -- but they lose all the love. You can't care for ANYONE in that movie. They're all horrible people. So, who gives a crap if they die?

I see why people like his stuff. I do. I just can't get behind him. He's done absolutely nothing to impress me. It feels to me, as an avid 70s horror movie fan and watcher, that he just sort of missed the point of the whole thing.

Yes, lets have Laurie have visions about people she did not know, and probably would have forgotten. Yes, lets have Michael eat a dog, but show it. Yes, lets have Michael kidnap his sister again only to have pretty much the same result like the last movie, but will he be dead this time?

It is like Rob decided to just do the 2nd half of the remake instead of create his own vision.

This guy sucks and should quit the entertainment business all together.

Awesome! Zombie is supra talented in every field and his visions are white trash royalty. He does it well and can't wait for the next Halloween. Any El Superbeasto news on the way guys?

It has already been confirmed through test screenings that H2 is even worse the H1, and that is pretty hard to do. Zombie is an incompetent director and should have kept his hillbilly grubby ass away from the halloween series.

He is a legend

I must admit I wasn't in favor of a reboot of the Halloween classic but he did a good job in my opinion. It was different. The man has vision.
