Quaid here, with a couple of very disconcerting little tidbits of information regarding Rob Zombie’s second Halloween film.
So, you know how Michael is a serial killer that wears an iconic, “blank, pale, emotionless” mask? Well according to Wayne Toth, make-up artist on the film, we might not get much of that in the new film. Apparently Michael will be WITHOUT his mask “70 percent” of the movie. Instead, we will get the quasi-dreaded hair-in-face rocker reject we all came to loathe in the first movie.
This made me upset, so I did a little digging and stumbled on this interview with star Scout Taylor-Compton in which she says…
“…he’s making this a Rob Zombie film which…I think he wanted to make the first one his film, but you know you can’t really do that, especially to the fans. But this is definitely his movie.”
Well, shit. I thought this was going to be a Halloween film, not Rob Zombie hijacking a horror icon for his own cinematic masturbation.
I mean, Michael without the mask is like Freddy without the glove. Dammit, I shouldn’t have said that. I don’t want to give Platinum Dunes any ideas.
