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.”

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.

They try, they really try and there have been some worthy contenders over the years, but Rob Zombie’s Halloween still reigns supreme as the highest grossing Labor Day Weekend film release, a record he has held for the past 5 years. This year The Possession tried and got close with a $21.3 million opening over the three-day weekend (making it the second largest opening) but Halloween just can’t quite be matched ($30.5 million in 2007).

Another week rolls by and another Question of the Week is asked by a fan and answered by Rob Zombie. This time thanks goes to Zombiehead member Jason_Frey who asked Rob the following question about any future Halloween movies.
Enjoy. And see at the bottom of the item how it could be you next!
Question: Hi Rob, you had such a interesting take on Micheal Myers and imo brought out his aggresive and real side. I know they are coming out with Halloween3d what happened with your involvement with the Halloween series? Was there ever a plan for a 3rd movie from you? Or was it just like the Devils Rejects 2 and done? Are you gonna watch the Halloween 3d movie? Did you have any input on this subject?
Answer from Rob Zombie: Even though I feel like I’ve been very clear on this subject there always seems to be some confusion so I will set the record straight again. I am not and have never been involved in Halloween 3. I don’t know anything about the project and what is happening with it. I did all I ever wanted to do with Halloween and it is time for me to move onto other things. As far as watching the 3rd movie, who knows? If it looks cool and my friends are in it I guess I will watch it.
