Myers clean look

08.24.2009

You've seen brief flashes of him in the trailers for HALLOWEEN 2, but Rob Zombie has just released this shot which shows Tyler Mane in full Myers costume in perfectly adequate lighting.

I mean, I certainly wouldn’t want to run into him….uh, anywhere, but he just doesn’t seem that imposing. Instead he sort of looks like a theater actor who’s down on his luck and is trying to make ends meet as a garbageman. To be fair, I don’t fault Zombie for this. I’ve always viewed Myers as significantly less terrifying than Freddy, Jason or hell, even Norman Bates, who was scarier wearing a dress and a wig.

Zombie also had this to say about the movie, in typical Zombie fashion, “Holy shit dudes there are only five more days until Halloween 2 hits a screen near you! Are you going or what? If so drag a friend who hates to be scared. It's time to fuck up your nice friends…This sucker is brutal. I promise."

Glad to know that “brutal” is still the quality Zombie desires most in his movies, I was worried for a second he might be focusing on making them “good.”

Extra Tidbit: With some red hair dye and a fresh set of overalls, he'd be a super-sized version of Chucky.

"Brutal" is for teenage dunces who listen to Nu Metal.

No, really.

Seriously who cares?

I like Rob Zombie & I think the dude has true skill in making his films look good, too bad they have all sucked so far. A remake of this was bad enough & a part 2 is even more unnecessary, Even he admitted it, but of course I'm sure he made some decent bank so of course people have no scruples in leaving things the way they were. As far as showing a full picture of the dude, pretty stupid, half of what makes horror films good is the reveal of the bad guy or the lack of it. Please don't go

Please don't go see this because they have already made about 10 Michael Myers films, lets get some new bad guys already! It was already sad, and now w/the Hellraiser remake & now the Nightmare on Elm street one, now it's pathetic in every sense of the word!

WHY DID YOU DO THAT?

I applaud the attempt but Hallowen will never work because Micheal Myers was scary when you didn't know who he was. Now all I think about is Sabertooth underneath, who cares if it's Tyler Mane. It ruined the whole illusion, and it's the one trick that should've never been revealed. Carpenter was a suspense god, Zombie is just a gore freak.

lets be fucking honest here

freddy, jason, michael, leatherface, pinhead...are any of these guys "scary" anymore at all? i remember back in the heyday of freddy, toys r us had a freddy doll with a pullstring in his back! aint one of us going to see this movie to be "scared", no. we just want hacking and slashing. and as far as rob zombie getting back to original material...give the man some time. that bitch works constantly between movies, comics, a new cd....listen, all you have to do if you dont like his stuff is stay

(my only real gripes with zombie are...his wife having to be included in EVERYTHING, and that terrorizing thing called PeeWee's Playhouse! scariest thing zombie's ever done.

God bless this man for keeping the franchise alive! We all like a scared girl friend or wife hangin' on our arm in a dark theater or your car at a Drive In - I know I do! This will be a perfect late night summer flick at the Drive In - Myers is a gr8 horror character-my favorite of the late 70's-80's movie monsters.

Why?

Everytime is see Zombie's version of Mike Meyers he reminds me of Mick Thomson the guitarist from Slipknot. Rob needs to find some new material. I enjoyed Devil's Rejects...what about a Billy Ray and Hondo movie with Danny Trejo & Diamond Dallas Page?

i dont understand

how can you say that you didnt like the new version because rob zombie turned the myers family into trailer park trash, you knew hardly anything about the myers family in the original, the movie starts with no explanation into the myers family. you watch mike kill his sister, behind the mask. and thats all you know, so as far as normal loving family goes, you judged that from the appearance of the parents themselves, the appearance of their house, and just basically their appeared economic

Halloween 2 looks soo BRUTAL.

The brilliance in the old movies is that Mike Myers was a regular-built guy who just wouldn't stop killing, and just wouldn't die. Turning him into an oversized wrestler-brute completely "kills" the creepiness of him. Anyway, I'm complaining for no reason. I generally stay away from the horror genre because it bores me. No difference here.

Brutal is awesome if and only if the rest of the movie is good. Gore can't keep me sitting through a movie. Zombie sucks and I figured this out when I felt screwed out of money after House of 1000 corpses.

...

His remake of this classic really pissed me off for one reason...when rob turned the Myers family into trailer park trash. To me one of the fascinating things about Mike Myers is how pure evil came from a normal loving family. I think he dropped the ball on this franchise.

Rob Zombie is a terrible director. Scary movies are a cop out.

Anyone can make a scary movie. The guy prides himself on it and he isn't even all that great at it. Stick to music, man.
