In order to expedite the process, and since I feel it appropriate to connect these two films together, I’m giving you guys a two-fer today with the EGO project that you might call “Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2” “H2,” regardless, call it what you will.
The long and short and Zombie’s vision is that it isn’t horrible. It’s shot expertly, makes you feel real grimy, like you are watching a documentary about Michael Myers and how he become the sister murdering, babysitter slaying enigma we know today, or if Zombie has anything to do with it, no longer an enigma.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times; the allure, at least to me, is that there is no reason for Michael Myers or why he kills…he’s pure evil. I don’t need an entire half of one film telling me how bad of a childhood Mikey had, I don’t need it.
Oh, and you’ll find this fun. With all the different versions of each film floating around, its a cool game to see what version you like since they could all impact each film and how it’s perceived. I thought the Theatrical and TV version of “Halloween 2” was enough, geesh!
Sorry, let me step off my white horse…
