And the “>H2 news just keeps on rolling in. This time around Rob Zombie talked to MTV Movies Blog about the film’s score and his overall approach to the subject matter.
Regarding the classic theme music we all associate with Halloween, Zombie says, “We haven’t gotten to that point yet so we could change our minds, but we want to do something totally different. The movie is very raw and very rough looking so the score has to [reflect that].” When asked if he might return to his heavy metal roots, he thankfully replied, “No, I wouldn’t do anything like that. We’re going to have to find a really sort of dissident ambient score. Unsettling rather than traditional.”
As for the characters themselves, Zombie promises we’ll see “people who have kind of gone crazy, and they’re all dealing with their insanity in different ways. Laurie was the withdrawn character, and now she’s sort of the outgoing crazy character. Annie was more outgoing; now she’s very much almost like agoraphobic, afraid to leave the house. Sheriff Brackett is a wreck; he’s like one year from retiring so he can just go to the funny farm. Dr. Loomis is in complete denial about everything, exploiting the situation and making as much money as possible while hating himself.”
That sounds cool enough, but I know you’re all asking the same question MTV did: What does he have in mind for Tyler Mane’s interpretation of Michael Myers? Maybe Zombie’s response will reassure you a bit: “Michael is crazier than ever.”
I guess we’ll all find out how Zombie’s “different” approach turns out come August 28th when Halloween 2 hits theatres everywhere.
