10 years on: Rob Zombie’s Halloween still dominates Labor Day Box Office

Halloween Rob Zombie Labor Day Weekend 2017 results

Halloween Rob Zombie Labor Day Weekend 2017 results

When Rob Zombie’s Halloween was released over the Labor Day Weekend in 2007, it broke box office records for this holiday weekend in the US.

And it has continued to do so year after year.

Other movies have tried to beat Halloween, which had a Labor Day box office result of $30.5 million, but they have all failed. Valiant attempts have been made by such contenders as The Possession, Morgan, Lawless, Don’t Breathe and a teeny-tiny pop band called One Direction, but none have managed to topple Big Mike.

Congratulations to The Hitman’s Bodyguard which *topped 2017’s weekend box office results for September 1 – 4, but also commiserations and good luck to whoever wants to try to take the mantle next year.

A decade on from Halloweens release, thank you for helping make Rob Zombie’s Halloween a success. Don’t forget to check out the movie and more info on here it here: Rob Zombie’s Halloween movie page.

Halloween turns ten years old

Rob Zombie Halloween 2007 tenth anniversary 2017

Rob Zombie Halloween 2007 tenth anniversary 2017

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?

The Lords of Salem featured in NY Times horror movie list

Rob Zombies The Lords of Salem

Rob Zombie’s 2013 movie The Lords of Salem has been featured in an article via the NY Times, as it considers a list of horror movies you may have missed but which are still “worthy additions to the horror canon“.

In the article the NY Times states: “The rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie (“The Devil’s Rejects”) may have a reputation for extreme horror, but “Lords of Salem” isn’t a blood bath, at least not at first” and concludes: “This film has more ambience than a typical Zombie offering; it’s only in the final third that the director uncorks the covens and satanic rituals that have earned the town its reputation.”

The Lords of Salem turns 4

Sheri Moon Zombie in The Lords of Salem

Sheri Moon Zombie in The Lords of Salem

Time sure does fly.

The Lords of Salem, the 6th full length movie from Rob Zombie came out on April 19 2013. The film, starring Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Patricia Quinn, Jeff Daniel Phillips and Judy Geeson among others, centered on the character of Heidi Hawthorne, a radio DJ who upon hearing a mysterious record sent to the station begins to succumb to a strange spell. The spell is revenge from a coven of witches, burnt to death in the 1600’s and now exacting their revenge on blood relatives of their murderers.

The film featured a full length book based on the original shooting script and was the first Rob Zombie film to feature a score written by his axe man John 5.

House of 1000 Corpses is 14 years old

Fourteen years ago Rob Zombie unleashed his debut film on the world – House of 1000 Corpses – and introduced horror fans to the diabolical Firefly family. The film was a carefully created homage to B-Movie horrors and the Marx Brothers. Fans took to their hearts Sheri Moon Zombie’s Baby Firefly, Captain Spaulding, played by Sid Haig and Otis Driftwood as portrayed by Bill Moseley. The film went on to spawn an equally loved sequel – The Devil’s Rejects.

Back on the 10th anniversary we shared this fantastic look back on the movie from Brutal As Hell: robzombie.com/2013/04/happy-birthday-10-years-of-house-of-1000-corpses/ – it’s still a good read today.

I am sorry for everyone still waiting on these. This has been a nightmare. One of my main concerns was that these got to the fan backers before they are available in stores. Well, I was lied to.

I signed the covers as soon as they were printed to get them out asap, but then they got held up. I have been on this everyday. I am being told they have all now shipped. So hopefully everything will get to you immediately.
