Event Report: World Premiere of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II

Dread just got back from the world premiere of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II (held last night at Mann’s Chinese in Hollywood, Ca) as well as the ensuing after-party which took place at Mood on Hollywood Boulevard, and while it really wasn’t much of a work night for this scribe, I figured I’d be remiss if I didn’t provide at least a bit of ocular coverage.

Playing to a packed and enthusiastic crowd, Halloween II writer and director Zombie was mobbed by paparazzi and fans alike post-show. On hand for the screening and following soiree (and sipping such film-inspired concoctions as the ‘Halloween Twist’ and the ‘Black Widow’) were H2 stars Tyler Mane, Scout Taylor-Compton, Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie and series alumna Danielle Harris (among others), as were Zombie stables Sybil Danning and Daniel Roebuck. Horror notables in attendance also included Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (the boys behind Saw V thru Saw VII), 2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys filmmaker Tim Sullivan (with cast-members from that upcoming countrified horror-opus Christopher McDaniel and Kathryn Le) and Feast 1-3 director John Gulager with wife Diane Goldner.

Halloween II opens wide via Dimension Films this Friday, August 28. Stay tuned to Dread Central for our review. Dig on the photos below!

    Does he never take off that bloody stupid hat? Is he going thin on top or something and fears losing his “rock cred” if he’s in the advanced stages of male pattern baldness?

    They should’ve let John Gulagar direct these films. I loved the Feast movies.

    I can see it now…..Holloween II …..tons of topless biker babes and Micheal Myers running around with his huge shlong……

    I’m just gagging to read the review…

    BTW – Rob Zombie looks like he’s just come from Choo Choo Bob’s store. He always seems to be wearing that hat!
