It looks like Rob Zombie has done what no one else could: Kill the boogeyman. Or at least, the boogeyman as we’ve known him.
Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News has posted an in-depth script review of the first draft of Zombie’s Halloween remake which sounds more like something in the vein of The Devil’s Rejects than anything Myers related.
While the prospect of seeing Danielle Harris naked is exciting, the rest of the details (including a trailer-trash backstory and a muscular talking Michael Myers) just doesn’t seem like a workable approach to horror’s biggest enigma. Here’s hoping Zombie proves us wrong, but don’t be surprised if Dimension panics and retools it into another Black Christmas.
