Exclamation Rob Zombie's "Halloween II" *Nominated for 2 MTV Movie Awards*

YOUR FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW MICHAEL MYERS!
Saturday, April 11, 2009

By: MrDisgusting

Shooting officially wrapped last night for Rob Zombie's Halloween 2, his reboot of the franchise created by John Carpenter back in 1978 that follows a soulless killer by the name of Michael Myers.

"Well, after 35 days of snow, freezing rain, fire ants, mud and blood we are done! The cast and crew kick ass beyond ass to bring you the most demented Halloween ever! In less than five months MIchael will be back in your face! And speaking of face... here is your first glimpse of one of the many faces Michael 2009."

The new film arriving in theaters August 28 picks up right as the first remake ended, following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted.

Technically this one isn't a remake.

It's a sequel to a reboot with a new storyline.

The mask looks like it has been through hell. It sorts of reminds me of how Chucky looked in Bride of Chucky.

Yeah, Zombie isn't having Myers' mask in clean white and pure condition like it was in the previous films.

I was looking at it now so I figured I post here at how Myers has changed over the years in the original films....

Myers Stabbing Spree in New Photo
Source:Rob Zombie April 15, 2009

H2 (Halloween 2) writer-director Rob Zombie is setting the record straight, via his blog, on his follow-up to 2007's Halloween.

"This movie has nothing to do with the movie that came out back in 1981. The only thing slightly the same is my film has a brief hospital scene at the top of the film and even that is 100% different. These are all new characters and all new situations. This is not a remake of a sequel, this is the continuing story of the Halloween I started."

Zombie gave a glimpse at the aforementioned "brief hospital scene" with the following photo of Michael Myers in action.

H2 stars Scout Taylor-Compton, Tyler Mane and Malcolm McDowell and opens in theaters on August 28th.

New Photo! Michael Myers Looks Like a Wizard
Source:ShockTillYouDrop.com, Rob Zombie
April 17, 2009


Reporting from the set of Rob Zombie's H2 (Halloween 2), we told you a teaser trailer for the sequel to 2007's Halloween was arriving today attached to prints of Crank: High Voltage. Well, guess what? You're only going to get a chance to see it if you see the latest Jason Statham film in New York and L.A. Those are the only cities hosting the teaser for Michael Myers' latest killing spree.

In other H2-related news, Zombie has addressed the issue of Myers being mask-less 70% of the time in his film by saying the following in his blog:

Well, the truth is the movie is just now being edited so the exact percentage of mask wearing is unclear at this point. But fear not, Michael is seen wearing the mask as much if not more than you've ever seen him wearing a mask in any "Halloween" film.

And here's a new still!

My take on this:

Halloween - I LOVE this one. My favorite of all of them. I own two copies of it on DVD for the different special features. I really must like something in order to own more than one copy of it.

Halloween II - Yes, the hospital setting was great (except for the fact that there was NOBODY in there lol) II was a pretty decent sequel.

Halloween 4 - This is my favorite of the sequels.

Halloween 5 - Boring, not one of my favorites.

Halloween 6 - I like the Producer's Cut better than the original version. Halloween 6 tried to explain the method behind Michael's madness and it just fell flat.

Halloween H20 - I liked that Jamie Lee Curtis decided to come back. It still irks me that they decided to ignore 4-6 and make it a direct sequel to Halloween II. I could do without 5-6 but 4 is one of my favorites. I also would like to know what Myers was doing in his missing 20 years since these films don't exist?

Halloween: Resurrection - Lame.

Rob Zombie's Halloween - I did like it however I think it has nothing on the original.



Regarding Halloween III: Season of the Witch, I will give a little backstory on this one for those that don't know what happened...

After Halloween II, John Carpenter has had enough of Michael Myers and he wanted to do something different. He intended for Halloween II to be the end of Michael Myers where Myers and Dr. Loomis get blown up in the operation room.

What Carpenter wanted to do now was to make the Halloween franchise a horror anthology series about horror stories relating around Halloween. The premise of Halloween III was about an evil corporation who makes Halloween masks that kill children when they watch the company's commercial on television.

This idea did not turn out too well at all. Fans were outraged that Myers was not in it so in the next installment they had no choice but to bring Myers back.

Halloween III does have a cult audience of its own today of people who appreciate the film and the idea behind what Carpenter wanted to do at the time. However, the majority of the franchise's fanbase simply do not regard this one at all as a part of the series.

The full trailer is in NY and LA theaters as we speak and we're patiently waiting for some nice fan to upload the video to YouTube (get on it!).

Are you ready for Hobo-Myers in action? The new film picks up right as the first remake ended, following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted. Dimension Films has the film slated for release on August 28th.

No prob..

Yeah, there are so many updates regarding news on this film so I'm putting everything Haloween 2 related in here rather than making individual threads for each update.

Myers Walks Alone in New H2 Photo
Source:Rob Zombie
April 22, 2009

Rob Zombie is playing it smart. After the backlash that followed the news that Michael Myers will not wear his mask that much in H2 (Halloween 2), the writer-director has been carefully releasing pics of Myers from the sequel with his mask on to appease the fans. Scroll down and you'll find the latest image which premiered on his blog this morning.

He also talks about why he took on a follow-up in spite of saying he'd never do another one:
"When I finished Halloween I was so f**king burnt out that the thought of doing another seemed totally insane to me at the time. I was done. But after a year and a half break I started to think that maybe another one wasn't such a bad idea. I love the characters and felt that I had only just scratched the surface of what could be done with them. The basic story was out of the way and now the series could go anywhere. Seeing the aftermath of Michael's rampage through the eyes of Laurie and Loomis was very exciting to me. So I came back and now we have a movie. Never say never."

H2 is now in post-production and hits theaters on August 28th. Look for the trailer online this Friday.
