View Full Version : Confirmed: Rob Zombie in for Halloween Sequel - H2

Rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie has signed to make a sequel to his Halloween horror movie, just months after vowing never to return to the franchise.

Zombie's 2007 remake of John Carpenter's classic horror film proved a huge hit, grossing $60 million (GBP40 million) at the U.S. box office.

Studio chiefs were keen to tie him down to a sequel, but he vehemently refused, until a break helped him fall in love with the franchise again.

He explains, "I was so burned out, but I took a break, made a record and I got excited again."

Zombie now faces a race against time to have H2 ready to hit cinemas in time for Halloween on 31 October 2009.

He says, "Now we'll be hauling ass. That's the problem with making a movie called Halloween. If you come out on November 1st or after, nobody cares. If it was called anything else, it'd be fine."

Great..he ruined the first one by making it his own porn filled-gorey-disgusting film that I was so embarrassed to watch with my dad. After hearing this news there's really no hope for the Halloween series anymore :(

Porn-filled? I didn't see it, though... I figured he'd ruin it.

There was so much nudity in that film seriously almost every scene had one nude person in it, it was embarrassing and VERY overdone especially with the language. I'm totally not a fan of his work.

I don't mind nudity, usually, but if it's overdone then it means the movie has nothing else going for it. I never saw the need to remake what was a perfect horror movie anyway.

ugh, this sucks. He screwed up the other one. At least the original second one isn't very great as is, but I still love it. I was really frustrated how he made Michael's family an extremely dysfunctional, southern, white trash family. In the original he just seemed like he was born evil and didn't really have that influence.

Yup :tmb: He likes to do this with his other movies to..Example: The devils rejects: Do i need to explain?

I don't either..but the thing is if you saw this movie you'd understand how overdone it is. Most rated R movies slip in a nude scene but theirs so much that it literally just becomes a joke..Horror Porn if you must.

His movies follow his formula of just over-the-top vulgarity, it's so unnecessary and leaves little substance.

I would like to point something out, according to the people over on OHMB.NET, it would be ILLEGAL for RZ to REMAKE Halloween 2, as the rights are owned by entirely different people ( universal i think, not sure though... ), therefore, a SEQUAL is planned, not a remake.

I should be excited since I love the Halloween series but I guess it's not worth it for me if it's not a Jamie Lee Curtis revival. I know it's unrealistic for that to happen since Halloween Resurrection was in 2002 and was awful but I don't really care about the gory remake series.

I seen this at my local Video/Game rental store, it seems like it'd be a good laugh, I'm still planning on checking it out.

Anyhoo, I despise Rob Zombie's movies, well, at least The Devil's Rejects and Halloween. There is no way I would want to watch the sequel.

I really really enjoyed his remake, i found it to be a very interesting film and the insight into michael made me enjoy it even more.

the only bit that made me laugh was the on-going pig squeal that little girl kept making when she was being chased..

ugh I don't like his Halloween movies, they are crap as far as being a Halloween movie.
Now I do like Halloween remake for the scary parts and for the whole seeing Michael in the institution I thought that was a nice addition. If he got rid of all the porn stuff then his movies would be a lot better.

I hated the rape scene in the first one. It was so disturbing. Why did he put that in??!?

touchthesky
17-12-08, 11:38
That scene was taken out of the theatrical cut and re-added to the directors cut. Why? Shock factor. But to be honest, it seems like he didn't "shock" but he disgusted. People are actually disgusted with him..It was a wrong, degrading and downright un-needed scene, and it made me lose SO much respect for him.

I enjoyed the first half of the movie, aside the nudity. But the last half was laughable.

I know it's his interpritation of the characters (and I adored Scout by the way) but the way he wrote for Laurie was dull. Michael turned into a sissy (the Michael we all know would NOT have let Laurie go, and I think Zombie should have shown a bit of respect for Carpenter through that). The end chase scene lasted way to long, and was very boring.

I preferred the theatrical ending to the directors cut, but not by much.

I hope, though, that Scout will be returning to her role, and she makes the character as good as she can. It's all thats left for it, really.

I bet they'll have Annie back too...*Barf*

17-12-08, 12:00
I bet he will bring back his wife and Daeg into H2 maybe in flashbacks sequences and this quote keeps me thinking "following the aftermath of Michael Myers' murderous rampage through the eyes of the sister he hunted." some people on OHMB reckon that Laurie will be the killer, who knows, but I'm looking forward to it I love all the Halloween films lets just hope he doesn't ruin this one.

At least Zombie has a style and sense of direction... unlike other even famous directors. He just needs someone else to write the script.

I didn't exactly think that the new Halloween was a really bad movie, I kind of liked it. My parents wouldn't let me watch it, so I had to go to my friend Coles house to watch it. I was scared, but I did think there was a little too much nudity for a horror film. Usually, there is a real average of 1 or 2 of those types of scenes, but this had a lot of them. But I still thought it was a pretty good movie. I really can't wait for the new one to come out.:)

Rob Zombie loves 70s horror eploitation horror movies... those were full of unnecesary nudity and sex. It goes perfectly with Zombieīs style... which is dirty, washed out and depresing. With Annie I though it worked perfectly... there was something unsetling about the intimacy rule that was broken in the scene. I have to say though that Lindaīs nudity and sex scene was unnecesary (but so it was in original) and the rape scene was completely pointless - although it was much more realistic scenario for Michaels escape then killing half of the facility.

I sincerely hope he actually makes a good movie this time around. His remake was okay in general, but considering the fact that he was remaking my favorite movie of all time, I was seriously ****ed when I left the theater. He really needs to step it up if he wants to redeem himself in the fans eyes...

OK Laurie's going to a party after what happened to her? or she could run into one trying to escape from Michael after shooting him, this would make more sense I'm guessing.
Oh and of course Tyler Mayne will be returning for the sequel according to his Myspace.

Halloween in October? Not quite. As we speculated here, Dimension Films has indeed shown that familiarity works best and Rob Zombie's H2 (Halloween 2) is now slated for release August 28th. Originally, Zombie had alluded to an October debut. But, late August is the same time frame Halloween bowed in 2007 and took the #1 spot at the box office. Written and directed by Zombie, the sequel picks up immediately after the first entry. Tyler Mane is currently the only actor officially attached. Pre-production begins this month with a principal photography start scheduled for early March.

I've never liked slasher movies much at all. They're no different from porn, since they are usually one-trick ponies about body parts rather than people. The main difference is they don't excite me enough to make me want to masturbate.

I think Zombie is a talented director, but he should not write any more screenplays, or at the very least, co-write them.

Oh and

Although he already filmed some scenes, it appears that Daeg Faerch will have to be recast as the young Michael Myers. Apparently the actor has grown quite a bit since his first portrayal of the iconic masked figure and since his scenes are flashbacks, it wouldn't make much sense for him to be taller.
