    Rob believed that he was not going to make another Halloween film until talks came up of another one. I think Rob was flustered that other directors wanted to make a sequel of his film, so he grabbed the reigns and took over. I have last all faith in the series and wish that only Akkad have lived.

    If he [Zombie] can stop making every god damn aspect of his movies 'red-neck white-trash', it would go a long way towards buying some interest from me. It doesn't endear me to the characters at all. If it's suppose to be a 'statement' he's failed three times in a row at getting it across.

    With the whole history aspect of Michael out of the way though, I can only hope this sequel doesn't feel like it has multiple personalities (low rent drama or underdeveloped slasher) and gets to the slasher plotline much quicker. I'll wait for DVD again either way.

    I felt that the "white trash" aspect of Michaels upbringing was a good twist. Granted the original premise of an innocent boy being disturbed enough for some reason to kill his sister was twisted, don't get me wrong, truly disturbing, but Zombie gave it a twist of realism. Many of the serial killer from the seventies (which Zombie tries to encapsulate in his film) came from disturbed, trashy, abusive upbringings. Manson, for instance, was the son of a truck stop prostitute. Just a general example there, as there were many others that stemmed from that type of upbringing as well.
    I was a bit confused when you said you had hoped for it to get to the slasher plotline much quicker, since there was a decent amount of killing within the first half hour of Michaels backstory. However, it really wasn't slashing, but more on the level of methodical serial killing. Zombie captured a much more realistic approach to the film that Carpenter was lacking (except for the size of Michael.) Zombie also paid many a homage to Carpenter in his film by keeping many shots and scenes (which Zombie amped up.) Also, Zombie kept songs featured in the original, but placed them differently (i.e. Don't Fear the Reaper.)
    It sucks that his film goes so under appreciated, but I feel many of his critics may view the film in a new light if they were to watch the original, and then watch Zombies Halloween right after.

    I like the 'innocent boy' premise more what can I say. I find it more disturbing than giving the killer an obvious motive, which making him an abused child to redneck parents does. I also never looked at the original 2 Halloweens as being about Michael so much as Laurie. I know everyone's probably going "" at that comment, but Zombie's Laurie just didn't feel as well developed to me because he focused more on Michael so I really didn't sympathize with her or her friends.

    The music and shots I'm fine with, it just seemed that the 'backstory' took up more time than I thought it needed. This again comes back to me not needing 'motives' for Michael to be effectively scary. And since his motives/background have already been set out in the first, the second can discuss them without having to directly show them. Only time will tell.
