Halloween 2: What the Hell Is It?

What on God’s earth is going on in Halloween 2? There’s no doubt in my mind that when the film opens on August 28 we’re going to see something interesting, be it a spectacular failure or an insane work of brilliance. Either way, with pictures like the one released today, I know it’s going to be a must see.

Zombie released this image today via his MySpace page, and I have no idea what to make of it. Whatever this weird pumpkin guy/thing’s story is, I have to find out.

    They filmed the movie primarily here in Georgia and I had the opportunity to see a couple of day’s shoots and know a lot of people who got in as extras. Unfortunately I was unable to give them the time to be an extra myself. There is apparently a club scene where my understanding is there was ALOT of weird things going on in there. My guess is the pumpkin character is part of that club scene.

  • Chainsaw

    I think it’s a pumpkin with pig ears, perhaps a cross homage to Halloween 3 and Saw, and it…Aw, hell, I give up trying to explain this. This is just Batshit Insane!

      goddamn another one of your lame ass attempts at humor

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        No, now you can enjoy the goodness of Hobo Myers with dailey updates just like Bobby Z. Know when he is stealing pies, washing windows, sleeping in the park etc. etc.

        • Kane86

          Shut the fuck up

          • Uncle Creepy

            Kane, seriously, mellow out. I’m tired of looking at the comments and seeing you giving anyone who even remotely says anything you don’t like a hard time. You were asked once already to chill. Consider this a second request. There’s not gonna be a third.

            Thanks.

          • Kane86

            Ok I will once you get zombiefriends to do the same……….. Its as simple as that you can say I’m trolling but he is doing the same exact thing.

          • Uncle Creepy

            Dude, I’m nobody’s den mother. I asked ZF to stop with the petitions, and he did. Now I’m asking you to stop with the tirade. It’s that simple.

          • Kane86

            WHats he is doing right now is trolling its as simple as that.

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            When you posted that I was sleeping not trolling. LOL

    • Carrion Filth

      I still see your ahead of the group on being a closed minded person.I hope one day you find a girl you really like and she’s as closed minded about you as you are about this film because then you’ll be able to see what it really feels like. But what’s worse than any of this is that you and your little cult of pansy followers are starting to recruit small children that don’t know anything about this genre, except for the trash that you feed them. In all honestly, I think you and Kane should just go outside of this site and have it out instead of bringing the trash in here. People come to this site to find out news about movies and you guys are making it into some sort of dick measuring contest. Which we all know who has won that one at this point…uncle creepy.

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        starting to recruit small children that don’t know anything about this genre? Who are you talking about?

    • Carrion Filth

      Again with that fucking thing.Let it go,get a life, and get the hell over your selves already it’s not going to happen and just to make everything square between you and kane uncle creepy said he asked you to get rid of this thing and he said you did..so what the fuck is this..oh a link to the thing ok so i think at this point you and kane need to just get the fuck off this site and find some where else to go just to make it fair.

      • Kane86

        Your just feeding the machine

  • Floydian Trip

    I can’t wait for A Haunting to hit DVD in a couple of weeks. I’ve disliked remakes for a long time though. The Carpet Crawlers remake is horrible. Phil Collins is no substitute for Peter Gabriel although he tries his best to sound like him. They also jazzed it all up and made it poppy. I know this isn’t a remake.

  • vorodex999

    A haunting in Conneticutt was not that bad as far as Haunted house films go. Its hard to breathe new life into haunted house films, when the formula has been worked in almost every possible way and when TV Stations like A&E, Sci-fi as well as others feature some sort of paranormal investigation thing that goes into great detail on every haunt.

  • Floydian Trip

    True, I would still prefer something more original. Halloween just isn’t interesting anymore. Ironically, really the only original horror film to hit theatres this year that sounds promising, imo, A Haunting in Connecticut, got a bad review from here so I went to see a remake instead. Sometimes I just get desperate.

  • Permafrost

    Maybe it’s some weird Samhain-related thing. It would seem right… It’s got a weird “Pan’s Labyrinth” look to it, which by just saying that will offend damn near everyone on here. Just my two cents.

  • Floydian Trip

    I can’t roll over and accept remakes. Not when movies like Splinter, The Burrowers, Outlander, Let the Right One In and Martyrs are going DTV.

    • PelusaMG

      To be fair, this is not a remake!

      • Rottenjesus

        It’s a shitty sequel TO a shitty remake!

        • PelusaMG

          Well, if you put it like that… yes!

  • vorodex999

    You know, I thought the whole people going back and forth at each other over this movie was funny at first, but now..It’s annoying. I’m a slasher movie fan, the original Halloween is my favorite slasher film. YEt I still like all the other sequels, Even the remake. While I’m not Rob ZOmbie’s biggest fan, he knows how to pull people’s interest into a film. Thats why people have bitched about his take on Halloween and why he has a devoted following of fans who love his take on things. Regardless he gets people to talk about his films and just like in the 80’s when people were trying to ban hardcore horror and music, it makes people (other people) go out and see these films that so many people hate and because it fuels peoples interest into seeing what all the fuss is about.

  • The Butcher

    Kane88 is NOT Rob Zombie.
    Mr. Zombie can spell and uses proper diction.

    Even if he can’t make a decent film.

  • Floydian Trip

    I’m pretty sure Rob can speak English and spell.

    I don’t think anyone loves House of 1,000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects as much as I do but I got sick of Halloween a long time ago.

    • Kane86

      I’m pretty sure your just another know it all who has never put forth no effort into making anything but a smart ass comment

      • The Woman In Black

        Kane, enough already. Discuss movies all you want, but the personal attacks need to stop.

        • Kane86

          Then zombiefriends need to stop

          • Gus Bjork

            Did my kids join the boards?

  • Floydian Trip

    I would still rather spend my money on Final Destination.

    • Kane86

      Then don’t come to this page!!! Duh!!!

  • Permafrost

    Is Kane86 actually Rob Zombie trolling around here?

    • Kane86

      No………. I don’t like zombiefriends

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        The feeling is mutual Bobby.

        • Kane86

          Blah blah blah

  • Minion

    It’s a preview for Rob Zombies Halloween III: Season Of The Trailer Park Loonies, where a doctor with a nasty drinking problem (William Forsythe) has to battle a band of crazy entrepreneurial trailer park residents (lead by Conal Cochran, played by Sid Haig) who plot to take over the world with masks that will turn children all over the planet into underachieving, unemployed slackers.

    • gorebath

      Nice, but you forgot Sherri as the vending machine girl who may, or may not, be involved.

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        Wait, no in Bobby Z’s H3 the mask will not kill them. It will turn them into strippers. Then “Captain-Uncle” Cochran will put them in cages on display at Charley’s Funtown

  • Gus Bjork

    It’s the first thing I’ve seen of it that peaked my interest. Damn you Rembrandt lighting!

    • DeTuinman

      My man….

      Dito, this is the first friggin pic of this flick that look’s interesting…
      Fuck it, I hope Zombie make’s this a trippy, b-grade, mindfuck…

      I’m getting so tired of “the defending of movie classics!”.
      I tried it, it’s a waste of time.
      Remake’s/boot’s/imagening’s/and shit will not change my taste in any kind of art form, the original will always be the original…

      All together now….let’s get high and say…Fuck it.

      The mind is like a parachute…it only works when it is open.

  • PelusaMG

    So I take it from this that Michael pays a visits to “Ripley’s Believe it or Not”?

  • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

    I was going to say Sherri without her makeup, but Gorebath beat me to it. It maybe the legionary Chickenf*cker that Rob loves so much.

    • Kane86

      Shut the fuck up. Go fuck yourself with hammer.

      Enough is enough…….I told that this is going to happen. The Sherri comment you just made means your jealous.

      • gorebath

        Dude, you type like you are a spasdic chinese food takeout phone clerk. I’ve actually heard “Go fuck yourself with hammer” after asking a Chinese restaurant for a doggy bag.

        • Kane86

          This does not concern you little boy

          • gorebath

            Sorry, Rob, to have offended such a magnificent filmmaker. I’ll go home and order KFC in your name….and not that grilled shit either.

          • Kane86

            Shut the fuck up

      • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

        Exactly how does that make me jealous? I was joking with Gorebath. Listen, I am sorry I made fun of your talentless wife, Rob. I am also sorry that you are a One Trick Pony that re-cast the same old tired characters over and over. Also, The ghost of Vincent Price will haunt you all of your days for the cheap “Geico Caveman” knock off you call Uncle Coffins. Boo Woo… Bobby Z!

        • Kane86

          LOL yeah your expert on making movies.

          Second I am not Rob Zombie get it through your fucking skull.

          Sure the bitch has not talent what so ever if you didn’t see that in his first movie your retarded. This franchise is dead and has been dead and well the first movie was classic and I am talking about the original. The franchise is dead so let Rob destroy please

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            Kane86: Your secret is safe from me. If Sherri was my wife, I wouldn’t want to come out and openly say “Baby, you couldn’t act your way out of a paper sack.” I mean hell…No one likes the couch. But…I at least admire the fact you came on here anonymously to tell us how you feel. We understand it is about the money and pleasing the Succubus you call a wife.

          • Kane86

            Yeah whatever keep telling yourself that. if Iwas Rob I wouldn’t be on this site wasting my time with you. Becasue He ahs money and life unlike you. If I worked on the movie don’t you know your supposed to support it then hate after it comes out. Stupid fuck

          • ZOMBIEFRIENDS

            No… Actually I think Rob (maybe you?) and Weinstein are using reverse psychology on the market. They are showing us how bad the film will be and making fun of it just as hard because they know everyone is going to go see it. Lloyd Kaufman has been using this trick for years, but it actually works for Lloyd cause he is a badass Mofo.

          • gorebath

            ZF, it’s actually not Succubus, it’s suckedawholebuss….totally different meanings. Give the chick credit where credit’s due.

  • gorebath

    This is easy, it’s a picture of Sheri’s nether region…

    • Masked Slasher

      You’re right. I see it now!
