On August 31, 2007, Rob Zombie unleashed his vision of Michael Myers onto the movie screens.
His origin story, a reimagining of the John Carpenter classic, looked further back at the childhood of Myers as well as following Myers as he wrecked bloody revenge on his hometown of Haddonfield that fateful Halloween night.
In Zombie’s version, the role of the Myers (originally only credited as ‘The Shape’ in Carpenter’s 1978 film), was played by Tyler Mane. Mane in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly said of working with Zombie “he’s a fantastic guy, a great director, he’s got his vision, he knows what he wants, and he put together a great team. Just working with Scout and Malcolm and everyone, it was a fantastic experience.” The film also saw appearances from Scout Taylor-Compton who played Myers unknowing baby sister Laurie Strode, Sheri Moon Zombie as Debbie Myers, Daeg Faerch who played the pre-pubescent killer Myers who slaughters his family and Malcolm McDowell who played Dr Samuel Loomis.
Halloween, released over the Labor Day Weekend, broke box office records at the time and continues to do so: robzombie.com/2016/09/top-again-for-labor-day. Can Michael make it ten years at the top this year?
