John Carpenter Confirms What Society Knew Years Ago: Rob Zombie's 'Halloween' Remakes Suck!

In a story that would be more popular seven years ago, the filmmaker reveals he isn't at all fond of the remakes Rob Zombie made or of the man himself.

John Carpenter, the man who directed/co-write/score the original Halloween (1978) finally opened up and as always was brutally honest about the two Halloween films Rob Zombie made (the last one, was made seven years ago in 2009). In a video Carpenter spoke to a class from the New York Film Academy and talked candidly about the two remakes and of Rob Zombie himself.

Here's what he said about the two movies:

I thought he took away the mystique of the story by explaining too much about [Michael Myers]. I don't care about that. He's supposed to be a force of nature, he's supposed to be almost supernatural, and he was too big, it wasn't normal.


And of Rob Zombie himself: 

He said I was very cold to him when he told me he was going to make it. Nothing could be further from the truth. I said, 'Make it your own movie, man. This is yours now. Don't worry about me.' I was incredibly supportive. Why that piece of s— lied, I don't know.

The You Tube video that was uploaded of Carpenter being quite frank, has now been set to private.  It should also be noted that Carpenter himself is returning to the franchise after thirty-four years (the last time he was tied with a Halloween movie was Halloween 3: Season of the Witch) with the tenth installment.

As for what Carpenter is talking about, I guess he could be referring Zombie talking about him in  this, or maybe this. Wait.. that last one, Zombie just said what Carpenter just said above. Does that mean he also secretly think his two remakes of Halloween suck too?! 

Probably not. I guess the lesson from all of this is: never trust a zombie. Unless of course he is given.. BRAAAAIIINNNSS!!!
