. . . zombie’s halloween is unbelievably hot . . .
. . . i know it’s taboo to say this but zombie’s remake is actually better than carpenters “sacrosanct” original. rob zombie’s remake of halloween blows away all the other quasi-remakes that have come out in the last decade, shows like texas chainsaw massacre and the living dead trilogy remakes. zombie knows how to make an old-school style slasher picture and he sure didn’t hold back on the brutal violence. zombie knows what his audience wants - gore and titties and lots of both . . .
. . . and the horror genre cameos! brad dourif, udo kier (!), clint howard, richard lynch (!), dee wallace, danny trejo, etc., etc. good god the casting is righteous . . .
. . . i mean, even zombie’s high energy commentary track is a delightful performance in itself . . .
. . . zombie must hate carpenter. he should put an apology to john carpenter at the beginning of the movie. he fucked him hard when he decided to outdo him with his new version of halloween. does anyone know if carpenter’s said anything publicly about the new version?
. . . zombie’s strongest movie so far (haven’t seen halloween 2 yet). he’s in a class of his own. who else does it like zombie? nobody in the mainstream that i’ve ever heard of. check out his resume on the internet movie database – when does he sleep?
. . . maybe i’m just sick of carpenter’s halloween - i’ve seen it a million times already. i’m excited about zombie’s remake of hte blob now. maybe if we’re lucky it will be zombie’s equivalent of carpenter’s remake of the thing. i think i’ll go out and pick up house of a thousand and reacquaint myself with the maestro . . .
