Zombie Explains Why he’s Back for H2, More Pics

Rob Zombie has already said that “H2: Halloween” the sequel is all him, and has nothing at all to do with the previous “Halloween” franchise, #2 or otherwise. And in his latest blog, Zombie also defends his reasons for returning to do a sequel after having said over and over that he would never ever do a sequel. According to Zombie, it took him a year and a half, but he realized there were more stories he wanted to tell, and thus, he returned. Plus, two more pics from “H2″, including more Michael Myers in a hoody.

The sequel stars Malcolm McDowell, Scout Taylor-Compton, Tyler Mane, Daeg Faerch, Bill Fagerbakke, Daniel Roebuck, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Chris Hardwick, Ezra Buzzington, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips, and is directed by Rob Zombie.

Grab your hoody August 28.

    Rob’s Halloween was not a bad film, i like it actually but it didn’t feel like a halloween film. Look at this michael wearing a hood and jacket… what’s up with that?. Rob kinda ‘killed it’ i gotta say but maybe i will check out this film cause like i said zombie’s halloween was good for a horror film, but not great for a halloween film. After Halloween resurrection i knew a sequel would suck but i preferred a sequel instead of a reboot or remake but that won’t happen since it got a new turn. Scout is a great actress though and worth watching the film for even if she changed Laurie.

      Screw that. I hate hearing how people constantly bitch about “oh my god, he’s killing the franchise, he’s changing Michael too much.” Forget that, if you want the same old shit than watch the old movies. If you don’t agree then don’t watch it, there it’s simple. Go back to ’78 and watch it on August 28th instead of H2. I know what i’m going to be doing then. Halloween is my favorite movie franchise, change it, remake it, recast it, I don’t care. As long as Michael is still on the big screen I don’t care.

        you hate hearing people bitch about killing franchise, dont listen. its one thing to remake a movie, but its another to screw up the story. nothing wrong with updating but rob does a terrible job. hes not a writer. im all for watching updated horror movies, i loved amityville horror remake, i love the carrie remake, and i love the prom night remake. these are all old movies but they were remade with taste and at least they followed the same story but with a twist. rob reminds me of tim burton sick and twisted in the head and have no idea how to make films. as for the bitching. i will continue to bitch and gripe about whatever i like and if you dont like it, get over it. continue to watch your twisted movies so the filmakers will have at least one major fan. as for the old movie quote, nothin will ever replace classic horror films i dont care who you are. ill be awaiting your reply since you like to bitch so much.

          honestly ken YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR ELEMENT. but thanks for the effort. plain and simple, You Don’t Know a Great Horror Movie when it bites you in your opinion. ;) Fortunately for me as I am a Horror fan there is a Director out there by the name of Rob Zombie and he’s tearing it up.
          and the fact that you like your remakes to be carbon flippn copies ‘with a twist’ is sad. are you the poster boy for hollywood box office?
          I hope H2 wrecks it at the box office and Zombie gets to do Tyrannosaurus Rex.
          and i qoute you ‘Nothing will ever replace classic horror films i don’t care who you are’. dude. You are living in the past. Look ahead to the sick and twisted future of horror. if not by all means keep flappin your lips and hopefully somebody will be there to impress upon you just exactly how flatulant your opinion really is. cheers!

    Looks like a good film even the first one was great not as good as the old ones but worth watching. But why did Rob make michael like this? Looks like a homeless guy asking for candy instead of offering some.

    You are all big morons!! These are not Halloween films. These trailor trash!! I mean come on, in the first one, some nasty redeck raping a mental girl? What is wrong with you people? These films are gonna cause a whole lot of people to go strait to Hell!! Rob, you have a lot of blood on your hands…… and you have no idea… 31 years ago Dr. Loomis said, “..I was told there was nothing left, no reason, no conscience, no understanding, and even the most rudimantary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong..” Did you get that, “NO REASON”! And now your going to “reveal” why Michael is a killer? Your an idiot.

    • C.T.H

    • Capt Flow

    I think this is great. I love how Rob Zombie puts his own ideas and thoughts into these new Halloween Films. Surely he could copy the originals to a T, making all the characters look the same, and so forth, but why? That would not be art. That would not be creative! Rob is taking the story of Michael Myers and putting his own twist to it. Looking forward to seeing this new film :)
