Wow. Rob Zombie has been promoting HALLOWEEN 2 more then making it, seemingly. Can be a good thing, can be a bad thing. But we’ve recently noticed that anytime genre fans don’t like something specific coming out of his camp, he renounces it.
First he posted a New H2 Poster with nary a disclaimer, yet when fans tore it to bits he then decided that it was never the final one. Now, he takes issue with the depiction of Hobo Myers in publicity from his own film. For someone so in-control of releasing material from his film, he sure seems to retroactively talk it down when fans don’t lap it up. Same went down when the first draft script leaked from the original film. Any psychoanalysts out there? What does it all mean?
Shock: Can you talk about Michael Myers’ new look that we’re seeing in the photos and trailer?
Zombie: There is a photo out that I didn’t approve that has Michael standing there with half of the mask off. You never really see it like that. You have these on set photos of him standing there in this brightly lit room. Everyone starts complaining, “I don’t like the way it looks!” Well, it never looks like that. I thought the mask should degenerate as Michael’s state of mind degenerates but it’s never that clearly seen and it’s still pretty mysterious in the actual film.
