What's going on with Halloween 2?
I was a little hopeful that Zombie would be able to shrug off the shackles of Carpenters original Halloween and make H2 his own but now I'm beginning to think that's a bad idea. On Shock to your Drop they have a bunch of set photos including a shot of Tyler Mane as Myers dressed in his iconic overalls and sporting pancake makeup and a shaggy beard. All I can say is WTF! This would suggest that Myers will be seen sans mask in this sequel and with a bad beard to boot. Why? Is he going to be in the hospital with gunshot wounds?
If that wasn't alarming enough there's also a photo of Loomis' new book called "The Devil Walks Among Us" which again just paints Loomis as a hack doctor trying to cash in on the tragedy. A far cry from the Loomis of the original films.
On a postive note however it is cool to see the film being shot in Georgia this time around so it should have more of a fall in the midwest look this time. I guess we'll see how all this turns out. I'll try to keep from passing judgment until I see the movie. H2 hits theatres in August.
