They try, and they fail miserably. Rob Zombie’s Halloween remains the top grossing movie opening for the Labor Day weekend box-office. $30.5 million can not be beaten – so the film remains the top-grossing since 2007!
So that’s now NINE YEARS seeing off some great contenders such as Morgan, Don’t Breathe, Lawless, The Possession, Machete and some teeny bopper band put out a movie too… but we guess they got scaaaaaareeeeeed.
Anyway thanks again to everyone who helped make Halloween a success.
Good luck to whoever wants to try next year………

This is an original prop used in the film Halloween 2007 as set dressing in the Strode house. It is a one-of-a-kind item of actors Dee Wallace, Scout Taylor-Compton, and Pat Skipper posing as the Strode family. The picture comes framed, but the frame is damaged due to being thrown around in the scene where Michael Myers kills Mr. and Mrs. Strode. I’m sure you all remember how Michael trashed the house in that scene.

It is with sadness we learn of the passing of Tom Towles. The actor appeared in several Rob Zombie films, including House of a 1000 Corpses, The Devils Rejects and Halloween. A veteran of horror, Towles also starred in “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” and the 1990 Tom Savini remake of “Night of the Living Dead“. Rob writes in remembrance; “He was such a great guy and I am so grateful that we got to work together several times. He will be really missed.”
With the scary season upon us, what better way to celebrate than reading this great piece from Yahoo Music, as Rob Zombie shares his thoughts on his ten favourite scenes from his own scary, bloody and bloodcurdling movie back catalogue.

Yes folks its that time of the year again. For five straight years, Rob Zombie’s Halloween has dominated the all important Labor Day Weekend, box office opening charts. Many have tried to take the films place as the highest grossing movie of this long holiday weekend – and they have all FAILED. Now, teeny dreamy boy – band – One Direction – are trying to take that mantle with their on the road tour film. Forbes.com says that the new One Direction movie earned “$8.9 million on its first 1.25 days” but they predict even with this strong out of the box showing that the “film should end the four-day weekend with over/under $25m, good for the second-biggest Labor Day opening weekend of all time, behind the $30m debut of Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake and ahead of last year’s $21m debut of The Possession.”
Anyway, best of luck One Direction – and thank you to once again to everyone who went out and watched this movie . Don’t forget to check out the movie and more info on here it here: Rob Zombie’s Halloween movie page Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!

Zombie and Manson Twins of Evil Tour by Jeff Resta
You knew with Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson co-headlining the Twins of Evil Tour on Halloween night was going to be so wickedly awesome, but this show was mind-blowing. Often times when two top billing bands “co-headline” there is usually a noticeable difference in staging, lighting and even sound giving you the feeling that there is still a headliner! Not here.

Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With ‘Lords of Salem’ and Why Making a Third ‘Halloween’ Would Be “Masochistic” by Nigel M Smith
Rob Zombie impressed many (ourselves included) with his grisly and demented sophomore effort, “The Devil’s Rejects,” only to betray many admirers of that film with his tepid stab at the “Halloween” franchise. After helming the 2009 sequel to that reboot, new film “The Lords of Salem” (which world premiered in Toronto earlier this week in the Midnight Madness section) finds Zombie back in non-remake mode with a gonzo tale that proves the musician turned filmmaker has lost none of his mojo.
