Scout Taylor-Compton Talks Halloween 3D

I love the Internet! Where else can you find interviews with celebrities that make you question your own sanity? DC reader Joey M. sent us in a link to a video on YouTube featuring Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween 2 star and new Laurie Strode, Scout Taylor-Compton, discussing whether or not she'll be back for Halloween 3D.

In it she states that if the script is bad and the movie is rushed, then she doesn't want to do it. Ummm ... wasn't Halloween 2 rather rushed, and as for the script, if anyone considers lines like "You know who I am, Angel. Now, repeat after me: I love you, Mommy." "What's up clit-lickers?" and "That's the old Loomis! I'm the new Loomis!" good, then I've got nothing for ya, man.

As for Halloween 2, I have to be honest. It's been months and I've seen it several times, and I STILL don't know how I feel about it.

I really liked The Abandoned. That and Mulberry Street were too good for the After Dark horror fest.

Back on topic I hate how Scout Taylor Compton has been pushed on horror fans as if she's heir apparent to Linnea Quigley or Jamie Lee Curtis or something. The girl just isn't talented, and she's also quite obnoxious.

How has she been forced on horror fans? She's only been in like 4 horror movies in the last 4 years. There are a lot of aspiring Scream Queens that star in the same number every year to try and force their way in. She's not very talented, but then, very few pursuing those same credentials ever are. I mean, no one watched Linnea Quigley or Tiffany Shepis for their acting (if you could call it that).

Shepis has actually grown leaps and bounds in terms of her acting ability.

Yeah, and Compton's like what, 20? We can jump down the poor girl's throat but it's kind of unfair to give a certain group of people a free pass while thumbing your nose at someone else simply because she has the taint of the Zombie films on her. Give her another few years to develop and see where she goes. If she still sucks when she's at where Shepis is now then I'd consider it valid.

Who's jumping down her throat? The girl is talking crap. How can you star in Halloween, H2, and April Fool's Day and suddenly say "If the script sucks I won't be in it." Give me a break!

Quite true, you make great points.

The Abandoned remains my favorite of all the Horrorfest films with Mulberry in second place for sure. Hoping we can catch Dread after all the good things we've heard about it, but nothing else this year has got me particularly excited.

I liked the majority of the Horrorfest films.There are two I have yet to see, Mulberry being one of them? Guess I have to make sure I do soon. One of my favs was The Deaths of Ian Stone. I really liked Borderland also. Those are the two that stick out in my mind right now of really enjoying.

Yep, that was the one. With Chloe Moretz, David Cross and Geoffrey Lewis having about five minutes before getting killed. Just like in Devil's Rejects funny enough.

Good point. Dear god there were some awful movies on After Dark.

Yeah. I think that and Lake Dead were the worst ones. Of course I skipped half of all of them on a whole and the only ones I really liked were Gravedancers, Mulberry Street, and Dread. Though what I saw of Perkins' 14 was decent.

Lake Dead was pretty bad. One of the worst of the lot. And Dark Ride was pretty weak also. Probably my bottom two of the Horrorfest films.

I loved Gravedancers and Mulberry Street.

I loathed Dark Ride.

That's because you're such HIGH demand because of H2, huh? Sheesh.
