From Rob Zombie:
Damn! Today marks 14 years since I unleashed a new Michael Myers on an unsuspecting public… and boom! Good old Mike shot to the top of the box office landing at NUMBER ONE!Rob Zombie ! August 31, 2021
Halloween 2007 still holds the Labor Day box office record to this date, but who knows what will happen this year? Thanks to all of you for embracing the film and keeping it alive and well.
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 an 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.
