Comic-Con Video Interview: Rob Zombie on Halloween
by Josh Green
July 30, 2007
At Comic-Con this past weekend, FS.net spent a few minutes to chatting with writer and director Rob Zombie on his upcoming Halloween remake. In addition to chatting with Zombie, a clip from the film and a new extended trailer were shown at the presentation and Zombie and company answered questions from the fans. Anyone excited for Halloween (or not) should check out this interview, as Rob lets us in on his thoughts on all things horror and more.
During the Halloween panel, Rob revealed a special clip and extended trailer for the film. The trailer indicated many of the film's main characters and the primary focus on Michael Myers. The audience got to see Michael breaking out of a mental institution, as well as a few of the terribly violent deaths that will happen in the movie. Overall, the trailer was received with a thunderous applause from the audience. Rob then revealed a short clip from the film. The clip involved Laurie Strode (played by Scout Taylor-Compton) evading Michael in different rooms of the house. Trying not to give too much away, I will say that the clip was stunningly intense. Zombie appears to have given the horror back into this successful series, in a way that hasn't been done since John Carpenter.
Rob Zombie's Halloween hits theaters on August 31st this year and we suggest you definitely go see it!
