You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • The Butcher

    OK.
    Lets take another look at the pic of Michael above. His old room has been “vandalized” and spray painted on and stuff…yet the Alice Cooper poster is still intact and actually in damn good condition. Someone was even polite enough to swing by and wipe the dust that would have acrued on it after 15 years.

    Now THAT’s manners.

    Just sayin’…

    H2 =’s fart noise.

    • Daniel

      Actually this is a bathroom. It’s the same room that we saw a picture of Laurie in a few weeks ago.

  • PelusaMG

    I think the H2 trailer needs to be discussed in the next DFF!

  • PrairieGhost

    I refuse to watch that… I just can’t do it!

  • The Ice Truck Killer

    Yeah! Let all get together and lynch mob Zombie. We’ll burn his house down with him in it, then he’ll come back to life in our children’s dreams and take his revenge out on us by hurting them.

    Then we can go bitch about that to someone else.

    Seriously, you people do nothing but hate. If the remake was such shit, why were you looking forward to this one anyway?

    • Mephistopheles

      “If the remake was such shit, why were you looking forward to this one anyway?”

      Simple. First off, prior to Halloween I was (and still am to an extent) as fan of Rob Zombie. I really enjoyed The Devil’s Rejects. Thus, I was optimistic when he was signed on to do Halloween and actually defended him on the boards here.

      When the first film came out, I was underwhelmed. I liked most of the first half (William Forsythe’s character and “Love hurts” aside) but I thought the second half was too rushed and dependent on the original film.

      I wasn’t crazy when Rob signed on for H2. Partially because I thought it was in better hands with the Inside duo, and partially because I wanted to see Rob do original work. That being said, his early interviews made me more optimistic. It would be completely original, he said, so thus the problems that the first film had–being bogged down by the preexisting film–would not occur. And unlike a lot of people here, I was alright with the idea of Michael being a maskless vagrant for a chunk of the movie. At the very least, I was willing to give Rob the benefit of the doubt. And I liked the idea of the film focusing more on Laurie and her descent into madness.

      Then the trailer came out, and it showed Michael’s mother as some gothic ghost urging Michael to kill, presumably being one of the major plot points. And my optimism waned considerably. The way she’s presented is completely out of place with dark and gritty atmosphere that Rob wants to achieve, and frankly, it’s just a way for Rob to have his wife in the film. And I really think that this is going to spoil what otherwise might be, at the very least, a better film than the first.

      Long story short? I’m a fan of Rob Zombie’s previous films. I was very disappointed with Halloween. I wanted to give Rob the benefit of the doubt with this one. And after seeing the trailer, I feel like covering my ears and closing my eyes and waiting for it to be over.

      • BigMatt

        You hit the nail on the head in my opinion, I totally agree with you. After I saw the trailer, I was completely disappointed….

    Weinstein Company/Rob Cummings

    To: Robert Bartleh Cummings (A.K.A. Rob Zombie)

    New York, NY 10014

    RE: Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2

    We, the undersigned, ask that Robert Bartleh Cummings (A.K.A. Rob Zombie), director of Weinstein Company/ Dimension Films upcoming motion picture “H2: Halloween 2″ reconsider the decision to take the sequel of the re-visioning of Halloween and The Halloween Franchise in the direction in which it has been directed.

    We feel that Rob Zombie’s 2007 Re-visioning of Halloween took the film and franchise in a wrong but still salvageable direction. From the information provided by Robert Cummings on the sequel to that motion picture and the trailer released to the internet on youtube.com and movies.yahoo.com. It is clear that he is taking the Halloween franchise further down the spiral from which many fans feel there will be no return.

    We feel that from the scenes of the trailer and information provided the film looks to be a mimic of a few combined horror motion pictures. We also feel that his casting of Sheri Lyn Skurkis (A.K.A. Sheri Moon Zombie) is not based on acting ability or merit, but due only to the fact he must cast his spouse in every motion picture he directs. Sheri Moon should be omitted from the cast and those scenes be corrected.

    Another major concern for us fans is that it has been reported by Robert Cummings, other cast and news that Michael Myers will not be wearing the classic William Shatner based mask or any altered or re-envisioned concept of that mask for 70% of the feature motion picture.

    We the fans ask that Mr. Cummings re-write and re-shoot the film with the deletion of the mentioned scenes and/or plot. We feel that Michael Myers is 100% evil without cause and should be left at that conclusion. If the film is released as it now stands it will without a doubt destroy the entire franchise and become a mockery of what Debra Hill, John Carpenter, Moustapha Akkad, Tommy Lee Wallace and so many others have immortalized in horror motion picture history.

    Sincerely,

    Halloween Fans

    • Feenix

      I agree the trailer looks shitty, but a petition?? That’s a bit much. Just have fun tearing the movie apart when you see it, then appreciate the genius of Carpenter’s original more.

      • krawlingkhaos

        Or maybe just don’t see it. Why dignify this crap with a viewing?

    • Mephistopheles

      This is fucking hillarious. The most you’re going to do is drum up more publicity for Rob.

      If the producers were to listen to horror fans, films like Repo! The Genetic Opera would be getting a wide release and the Prom Night remake would go to DTV. All they listen to is MONEY, and the hardcore horror fans make up a VERY SMALL percentage of moviegoing audiences.

      Think of it this way. Horror fans were throwing a bitch fit when they found out Rob Zombie was remaking Halloween. They threw a bitch fit when it came out. Then, for the sequel, the directors of INSIDE, a horror film that was universally praised by the 99.9% of the horror community, were set to make it. And what happened? They got canned and were replaced by Rob Zombie! What does that tell you about what the studios think of our opinions?

      And yet you think they’re going to be convinced by a petition?

    • Terminal

      Dude, who are you kidding? Bad publicity is still publicity and you’re drawing attention to–ugh–H2. Give it a rest.

    • The Unknown Murderer

      Damn! You need a hobby.

      Besides, the mockery already happened with Halloween: Resurrection. You guys are just plain late to the game.

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        No just sick and tired and not going to take it anymore. This new film will make even a Busta filled Halloween look fantastic.

        • G.D.

          It’s good that you waited until the script was written and the movie is deep into production. Getting every horror fan on earth to sign it is not going to make them scrap a movie that’s as far along as it is.

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            We are not asking them to scrap it, just revise it and it’s not to late to do that until August. Even if we don’t get them to change it maybe next film Rob may second guess putting Sheri in it.

          • Mephistopheles

            Hate to break it to you, but Rob’s next two films (T-Rex and El Superbeasto) both have Sheri in starring roles.

        • G.D.

          And secondly, you have a lot of credibility, judging a movie that you haven’t seen yet.

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            Anyone that has seen a lot or for that matter a hand full of horror films can read between the lines on this one. One of the stills has Malcolm McDowell (Loomis) sitting next to Weird Al in some kind of Tonight Show talk show type scenario. Myers has a half a mask, a ZZ Top beard and looks like he just got through singing country songs and picking guitars in a cargo train. Now Sheri Moon is a ghost of good old stripper mommy, going make Mikey kill to get her back. If that ain’t it, then it can’t be much better. Wait… I forgot Uncle Coffin! more filler crap Zombie probably just had laying around that he could use anywhere else and threw it in. We don’t want Zombie’s fourth meal rendition of a carpenter Classic. Rob put up the blendomatic and give us some horror. We want a Haddonfield, pure evil for no cause, Will Shatner masked slasher. It’s okay if he’s scruffy, just leave out all the BS.

    • doubleh55

      I just really enjoy the irony of a guy who’s nickname is zombiefriends is trying to stop a movie made by Rob Zombie.

  • AriesofPitt

    I am going to do the SAME thing I did while watching Zombies first Halloween. Imagine it’s JUST A MOVIE and try to either like or dislike it on it’s own merit and not compare it to the originals. Because if I did compare these to the originals, I’d f ing kill somebody. Halloween is by far one of my favorite horror movies. Halloween is my fav horror series and H2 was my favorite of them. This Sherri Moon crap is ridiculous. WTF, I think he got Friday the 13th and Halloween confused. Jason is the one killing because of his mommy (lol). I’m gonna see this but F I think I’m going to be so disappointed.

  • krawlingkhaos

    There seems to be a lot of people who think this will either suck as a film on its own, that remaking Halloween was a bad idea to begin with, or both (personally, I think both). But I would be willing to bet that there will be a lot of chatter on the boards after opening weekend about how the movie sucked as hard as everyone thought it would.

    Please, if you are opposed to this movie’s existence, or nothing in the advertising has appealed to you, don’t buy a ticket for it, especially on opening weekend. No one is obligated to see a movie that looks terrible, even horror fans.

    The only way these kind of projects will stop is if they become unprofitable. I think we should start a campaign (or at least a thread) to declare what we’re going to do with our ten (or 20 in NY/LA) dollars INSTEAD OF buying a ticket for this. Personally (not that my opinion or approval matters) I would even be willing to excuse dread staff from reviewing the film. I appreciate that they’re willing to take bullets for me on things like Molly Hartley and House, but the remaking/raping of classic films while good, original horror languishes in limbo is a larger moral issue (for me at least) than an obligation to provide particular reviews. Posting dozens (hundreds?) of horrible reviews for the first one didn’t stop H2 from getting made; maybe if the larger horror community posted NO reviews it would raise some eyebrows. Silence sometimes speaks louder and all that.

    If you think you’ll like H2, then by all means go see it, but if hate and outrage have been festering in your heart since the announcement of this abomination, then don’t support bad ideas with ticket sales. I at least will proudly declare that I won’t know if H2 was good or bad because I won’t give anyone associated with this movie my money.

  • arandomthought

    You know, I’ve been off and on about posting my opinion on this the past couple days. I don’t really know what to think about it. I think there are some good ideas, and some bad ideas. Sheri moon telling him what to do is a terrible idea, but may play out to the movies advantage. The hobo micheal idea, I think could be great. I was excited for the last one, but was sorely dissapointed. Let’s hope that this is the micheal with the 2X4 busting the ceiling down to get to his victim.

  • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

    Horror Fans unite to stop this ridiculous sequel. Tell Weinstein and Rob Zombie we are not going to watch this pile of shit until he goes back and re-shoots it without this Sheri Moon-Mommy issue bullshit. We get you love your wife but don’t kill off an icon to get her work!!!!

    Start with http://www.weinsteinco.com and http://www.myspace.com/rzofficialhalloween for now we will get you more contact info asap!!! Act now before it is too late and this pile hits theatres!!!

    • Mephistopheles

      Yeah…good luck with that…

      • PelusaMG

        And while we’re at it, let’s all write letters to Congress telling them to lower taxes!

        • The Buz

          The man has a point you know.

          In fact, I think this is one of the biggest civil rights issues to come up since 1968. We are at a cross roads right now with film making and our culture, and the only way to make a difference is to send letters through the internet to Rob Zombie to re shoot his movie to remove his wife from it.

          If it doesn’t happen, there will be a tremendous social unrest throughout the country, and maybe even the world. Oceans will run red, buildings with collapse in flames, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria.

          So I agree with the above poster! Let’s spend what little time we have from our busy lives and jobs to really make a difference in the world. No need to send a buck to a starving African, or to run for your local town or city political office. Right now, here is where you and me, and all of us horror fans can unite truly change the world.

          Today is the day we can make Rob Zombie take Sheri Moon Zombie out of his extreme version of Halloween 2 and thus ending all wars, poverty, world hunger, and most sexually transmitted diseases.

          TODAY IS OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY!

          • krawlingkhaos

            Fan outrage kept Liv Tyler from appearing during the Helm’s Deep sequence of Two Towers, even after it had been filmed. It may work here. I’m pretty sure Peter Jackson paid attention to the fans, though.

          • Mephistopheles

            ***ROTK SPOILERS***

            I know that Liv Tyler was in Helm’s Deep for the Director’s Cut, but this is the first time I heard that fan outrage was responsible for her removal for the theatrical.

            The fans also wanted to see Saruman’s death scene in Return of the King, and they didn’t succeed there.

          • PelusaMG

            I say we take to the streets with clubs and flaming torches…

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS
          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            I know that is sarcasm, but it is awesome. Thanks! Buz, you made my day.

            Today Is Our Independence Day!! Down With Sheri Moon!!

          • The Buz

            This was not my intention. I’ll be more obvious.

            Don’t. It’s a bad idea, and it’s not how the movie industry works, nor how it will ever work. There is literally nothing you can do, nor nothing 100 of you can do.

            Do you know how much money it is to do re shoots? A shit ton. Rebuilding sets, re hiring all the crew, sometimes bringing other crew members in since most go off to other things.

            With that in mind, remember we are dealing with the Weinstein Company, the most notoriously cheap studio in the business. While I’m sure we can all appreciate your enthusiasm and your passion, it’s not worth it man. That kind of fervent attitude would be better suited towards something else that is actually attainable and maybe helpful to society or the creative arts as a whole.

          • The Unknown Murderer

            Nice.

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        Think about it a small majority of fans complained and what did they get a new ending to Terminator: Salvation. Why would this be any different?

        • Mephistopheles

          Erm…from what I had understand, they changed it because the ending was leaked ahead of time.

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            And when the fans found out the end the complained and they re-shot the ending. Snakes on a Plane re-shot because of what the audience wanted.

            http://www.petitiononline.com/robzh2/petition.html

          • G.D.

            Yeah, that’s a terrific idea. Use ‘Snakes on a Plane’ as an example of why sutdios should listen to idiot fans…

  • Terminal

    Michael as some sort of vagrant. My god the neck veins throb at the thought.

  • PelusaMG

    You know, if you look at it closely that mask and the picture of Alice Cooper on the poster in the background are very similar.

  • Sirand

    I honestly think Final Destination 4 in 3-D will wipe the floor with this movie.

    • PelusaMG

      I would not bet against you on that one!

    • Rorschach

      I know which one sounds like it will be more fun to me…and it isn’t the one directed by Rob Zombie.

      Outside of maybe MEG in 3D…FINAL DESTINATION is the one series I can think of off the top of my head that honestly NEEDS a 3D installment. Seeing this with a packed house of screaming people sounds like a much more fun movie experience for my dollar than seeing yet ANOTHER round of “Gee, ain’t my wife GREAT?” with Rob Zombie.

  • Fireflyfan

    Loved the first RZ Halloween, don’t really give a shit about the whiners (which many of you are good at, it seems), so will see this too.

    It’s also funny how most of the hypocrities bitching and whining will pay to see this anyway day one (and I know there will be some ”nah I’m not gonna pay to see this ” comment, but come on, we both know you will).

    And how ironic that one guy will be mocking ”retards” for watching H2, while handing over money for Final Destination 4 after the abysmal third movie.

    • G.D.

      So, people who don’t like the movies you like are whiners?

      And people who pay for a movie they think will be bad are hypocrites?

      Am I lookin forward to this? No. Did I like the Halloween remake? No. But I love horror movies and I will absolutely see it before judging it. Same as I’ll pay for FD4.

      Does that make ME a hypocrite?

      Interestingly, you’re condemning FD4 (without seeing it, mind you) based on FD3, yet the fourth movie is being made by the same director as the second, which many people would agree is the best of the three.

  • Genrewriter

    I just look at that photo of Michael Myers and am reminded of a 1992 movie called The Vagrant with Bill Paxton and Marshall Bell.

  • JoeSena
  • The Unknown Murderer

    How many will see this even though they’ve already decided to hate it?
    95%?

    I’m gonna go because it’ll probably be damn funny. I mean, I don’t like any of the movies except for the first and Part 3 (mostly because of the exploding heads full of snakes, spiders and insects, oh my! and Tom Atkins making sweet love to a robot) so I’m pretty sure I’m not going to be disappointed. At all.

    So Rob is doing what he wants for good or bad, for fun or profit. That’s all any of the filmmakers of the series have done, save for Carpenter who made the first film not only for career but I believe out of passion for the story he came up with. And it was fine. But all the sequels have been about making money and continuing the franchise.

    So Rob’s breaking a toy, who cares? The toy doesn’t belong to us. Akkad said ‘do what you want with it’, didn’t he? Maybe we should bitch him out, but good. But I don’t think he cares, which is too bad.

    Except, I don’t really care what happens to Michael Myers. I can’t idolize him. He’s an idea, he represents something that worked amazingly well in the first film only, and everything after that has been nothing but a bastardization of the original concept.

    I love Halloween and will watch it again on my new Blu-Ray edition this October. As for the rest? I haven’t even seen part 8, watched H20 only once, couldn’t finish part 6, and thought Part 5 was terrible. Part 4 was merely okay in my opinion, Part 2 was boring the last time I tried to watch it, and I’ve seen only the first half of the remake last week (I just haven’t gotten around to finishing it yet).

    If this movie sucks, my life will go on. And If I see it, it may be just as funny as I think it will be:

    “Look, it’s a Sheri Moon ‘Zombie’! Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!”

    I admit, I thought this held some promise until she showed up. I don’t understand why she’s there, a psychotic hallucination/justification dreamed up in Michael’s twisted head? I’m not sure since I haven’t seen it…heh heh.

    I would love it if Zombie remade Part 3. We could see a white-trash family (insert distracting cameo here) trapped in a test-room watching the new Rob Zombie Silver Shamrock music video/commercial starring Sheri Moon-Zombie dancing in a dead girl go-go outfit (“YEAH!”), and the kid’s head would explode. He wouldn’t even have to be wearing a mask, now would he?

    And your heads would probably explode, too. While I just laugh my ass off.

  • filmmisfit

    I’m sorry… but I dig it. I’ve really enjoyed following the news of H2 every step of the way, and, with the exception of the title, I really love everything that I’ve seen. I’m ready to see Rob’s second take on the Halloween francise. Malek Akkad has already stated he’s not going to continue the old storyline – and I’m really thankful for that. The last time we saw “old school” Michael was when he was fighting Busta Rhymes…

    I’m just saying that this is a hell of a lot more interesting.

    • Terminal

      We’re back to that old argument again? Weak.

      I guess there’s no slaying the Zombie apologists.

  • The Butcher

    Wow.

    That is so so soooooo awful. In the still Michael looks cross eyed.

    Is RZ intentionally trying to suck so bad?

  • Enraged_Otter

    This Micheal Myers evil??? Naaaahhh…Somewhat pissed off crazy asshole??? Yeah probably

  • Sakryed0

    I dig how Rob is combining Michael Myers with Jason Voorhees, because now it’s his fucking Mom that’s telling him to do it. WHAT. THE. FUCK.

  • The Buz

    LOL AT EXTREME VISION!

  • kiddcapone

    Do I really need to say anything?

    Nope.

    August 28th….I will be witnessing Final Destination 4 while mocking all the retards standing in line to watch H2. KILL ‘EM BABY….don’t worry Sherri, Rob is killin’ and raping em all, out of hard earned money….

  • Mephistopheles

    Its sad, now that I think about it…the Inside duo could have been doing this instead. I wonder how they would have done it?

  • The Unknown Murderer

    This movie will probably be terrible, judging by the Sheri Moon ‘Zombie’, but judging from the number of posts: You guys just love to hate, don’tcha?

    Peace out.

  • Permafrost

    Hm. That was something alright.

    Not sure what to think of that. The only thing that bugs me is Ghost Mom… Her line delivery is weak almost all of the time, and I like Sheri.

    Hobo Myers is still okay with me. Crazy street people are not to toyed with…

  • vorodex999

    Oh man, oh man, oh man. I dont know what to say. i really don’t only taht I am totally pissed right now. Dont get me wrong I’ll see it, but Its funny to see Rob Zombie do HIS version of the Curse of Thorn storyline. Or is that just me. Anyway, Moon Zombie’s lines sucked really bad. I’m a Tyler Mane fan tough so if I see it more than anything its because of him.

  • Uncle Creepy

    Well then this just about says it all …

    Thank god for Twitter! LOL

    • FilmCritic3000

      I think The Weinstein Company need look no further. We have our official one-sheet! :D

  • Didn’t See It Coming

    O. M. G.

  • Terminal

    Now Zombie is just getting pathetic. Well, after this I’d prefer Resurrection and karate Myers than Zombie’s piece of self indulgent garbage. Fuck this.

    • The Woman In Black

      Well, if nothing else, H2 got Terminal to come out of hiding and post. Good to see you, man!

      • FilmCritic3000

        Exactly! Where you’ve been, Terminal? Good to see you! :)

        • Uncle Creepy

          It took a river of blood to bring us back together again.

        • Terminal

          Same to you!

      • Terminal

        And you as well WIB.

    • PelusaMG

      Yeah… I was just thinking of you today, and wondering how you are/where you’ve been etc.

      • Terminal

        Thanks. I’ve just been going about my business. How are you?

    • frank_dracman

      Yea, I’m more excited to see Terminal posting again. Then again, I’d be more excited to find a nickel in the gutter. ZING!

      J/K Terminal, we all love ya.

      • Terminal

        You dare jest the name of Terminal? We duel at dawn.

  • ImTheMoon

    I’m just going to invoke selective amnesia and pretend that this movie and it’s predecessor don’t exist, my worlds a happier place that way.

  • Rottenjesus

    “Michael has evolved!” Yeah he’s evolved into a near indestructible killer hobo with severe family issues and a cot at the YMCA. HELL YEAH!

  • Uncle Creepy

    Again — The line “Only a river of blood can bring us together again” could very well be worse than “I don’t know what he wants but it can’t be good”, and that’s saying something. Sheri’s delivery of it is about as wooden as the stump Tiny once fucked, but I don’t even know if I can blame her. In fact I give her credit for being able to say it with a straight face!

    Between that and Scout Shrieking “I’M NOT STRONG ENOUGH” all I can say is … I can’t wait to see this — It will take a river of fiends to bring us dinner. Fuckin’ Epic!

    • Mephistopheles

      “…as wooden as the stump Tiny once fucked.”

      Classic.

    • Styling Shatner

      Oh man, I already know that the DFF on this movie is going to be EPIC. It will make all the anger and rage from the AVPissed episode seem like you guys were mildly annoyed in comparison. That early September episode can’t come soon enough.

  • PelusaMG

    So IMHO, some of this stuff plays out exactly like “H20″… The repeated it’s him, not it’s not; it’s him, no it’s not; shit, it is him and the waking up screaming after imagining Michael has come after you! Also, Rob said the Haddenfield hospital scenes would be nothing like those in the first “Halloween 2″, but a lot of that stuff looks and feels very, very familiar to me!

    • Sakryed0

      What he’s not remaking the original sequel? That’s exactly what it looks like from this!

  • PelusaMG

    It’s the living dead girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqHcD6tv2po

    • Sirand

      Damn, you’re right.

      So Rob Zombie is now plagiarising his plagiarism. Wow.

      • Mephistopheles

        If you’re referring to the “Dr. Caligari” stuff in the music video, I think that’s more of a homage than anything else.

    • Uncle Creepy

      Good eye Pelusa! LO -fucking- L!

    • Terminal

      Zombie can’t not have Sheri in one of his movies. Ghost mom, is he kidding?

  • FilmCritic3000

    In the next one, Sheri pops up like an IM icon as Michael goes around killing.

    Enough, Rob, we get it – you love your wife.

    And I thought McDowell was done with horror after filming the last one? I suspect contracts came into play.

      Did he ever officially say that?

      But yeah, either way, he’s signed on for two(?) sequels.

    WTF? I am a big fan of the first RZ Halloween, but ‘Ghost Sherri’ looks really dumb. In the remake she seemed like a good person, a piece of white trash, but a good person. And now, she is the reason MM kills?

    • The Woman In Black

      I don’t get the feeling she really told Michael to kill — more like it’s his fantasies of her that are behind it. Michael was always my favorite because he had no motivation other than pure evil. This new version is too much like Jason for me.

  • WLKNDED

    I didn’t think it possible…
    It looks as bad as the First.

    • LSD Zombie

      As bad as the first? It looks fucking 10x worse than the first! Sheri Moon with a white gown and black eye make-up?! This has got to be a joke!

  • Mephistopheles

    Ghost Sheri telling Michael to kill? Honestly, Rob?

    • goblin310

      Yeah sounds like a page taken out of another slasher franchise… *cough* Friday the 13th *cough*

      • Mephistopheles

        I’m not bothered by the similarities to F13–its just that it looks really silly and out of place given the tone that Rob wants to set up. Although you have to give credit to Rob finding a way to have his wife in the film when she blew her brains out in the last one.

        • The Woman In Black

          Credit? Really? I think he deserves people giving him shit for it rather than any sort of credit.

          • Mephistopheles

            I was being sarcastic.

          • The Woman In Black

            Aren’t we all? ;)

          • Rorschach

            Me too, WiB.

            “Witness the Birth of Fear”….God. They couldn’t even come up with an original tag line?

            *Shakes head*

            Those who WERE on the fence about this, as I was…it’s not gonna convince ya to shell out for it. Those who already hated it….even more ammo. Heh…and Rob even throws in a kid going “Are you a giant?’ to Michael, to mock those of us who bitched about the 50 Foot Myers before. Nice.

            What’s really gonna be puzzling is…if Rob says that only a small bit of the film takes place in the hospital…we’ve then probably seen that entire bit. Wonder if that’s at the very beginning, or the very end of the film? Wouldn’t surprise me if that was the tail end, and Rob makes us sit through an entire film of Hobo Myers just to cut off at that point and set up H3: A whole new HYBRID of fear!

            *Facepalm*

          • Mephistopheles

            From what I heard, the hospital scene is in the beginning of the film, taking place right after the first film ended after Laurie shot Michael. The rest of the film takes place a year or two later.

          • Rorschach

            Ahhh…gotcha. So all that stuff was from the very beginning of the film. After the hospital scene, we get to spend the rest of the movie being treated to white-trash, drug addicted Laurie and Michael having visions of his ghost mommy telling him to “kill them all Jaso—err…Michael!”.

            Give Myers a chainsaw, and go for the hat trick, Rob. Hell, I take that back. He’s already a juggernaut like Jason, he’s already burned like Freddy, and he’s got the Myers mask looking like Leatherface’s…giving him the chainsaw would make him a hybrid of the “big four” slashers of horror cinema.

            *Sigh*

            In addition to that, he should carry around a four-leaf clover and a puzzle box. You’ve got to cover all your bases, you know.

          • Rorschach

            Oh MAN. Forgot about those. Yeah, he should totally have like, a four leaf clover in his lapel, some of Lep’s coins in his pocket, and carry around a puzzle box in his bindle.
