Even though I pretty much hated the first film, I’ve tried my best to stay positive about “>Halloween 2. One thing is for certain: Rob is making his own very different film, and I applaud him for that. But this latest image just leaves me cold and even kind of sad.
Zombie as per usual posted it on his MySpace page and had this to say about it:
“Another question that seems to have been asked quite a bit is about the mask,” Zombie writes in his blog. “There have been reports and rumors that he only wears the mask 25% of the time or not at all. Well, the truth is the movie is just now being edited so the exact percentage of mask wearing is unclear at this point. But fear not, Michael is seen wearing the mask as much if not more than you’ve ever seen him wearing a mask in any Halloween film. As seen below. Enjoy.”
Honestly? I’m not even sure what he means by that. Really? We’ve heard NOTHING but the opposite from all the crew members we’ve spoken with including Malek Akkad! I smell pot stirring.
As for the new image itself, I kind of hate it. This isn’t The Shape whom we grew up with, that’s for sure. Looking at him in this state doesn’t inspire terror; it makes me wanna hand him a dollar and point him in the direction of the closest McDonald’s so he can get himself something from their value menu.
Sigh. What do YOU think?
Look for H2 in theatres on August 28th.
