Remembering Sid Haig, one year after he passed away

Rob Zombie looks back on his friend Sid Haig one year after he passed away (21 September 2019):

Well, today marks one year since my buddy Sid Haig left us. We did a lot of stuff together over the twenty years we were friends. He was my first and only choice for Captain Spaulding back in 1999. As sad as it was, I am so glad he got to play Spaulding one last time even if it was brief. He gave it all he had. That was March 2018. Obviously we had originally planned to do much more back then but his health made it impossible. I can only hope this role will help him live on for future generations of horror fans.

On September 16, 2016, Rob Zombie released 31. In part financed by crowd-funding, 31follows the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. What follows next is 12 hours of the captives fighting for their lives, against a seemingly relentless parade of maniacs.

Wow! Already 4 years since 31 was released! Time flies when killer clowns are chasing you!

Rob Zombie Halloween Labor Day Weekend 2020 box office ratings Christopher Nolan Tenet

Halloween dominates Labor Day Weekend for 13th year in a row

It goes without saying that this years Labor Day Weekend movie takings were going to be a bit ‘weird’ in comparison to other years. The current Coronavirus pandemic has seen movie goers numbers dwindle BUT that didn’t mean there wasn’t a movie out there that wouldn’t try. The latest Christopher Nolan blockbuster Tenet, sort to try and rival Rob Zombie’s Halloween release from 2007, and was a worthy contender to try and oust Big Mike from the top spot, but again it was not to be.

Speaking about the news Rob Zombie said:

The word on the street was that Tenet was going to topple Halloween 2007’s Labor Day boxoffice record! Did it happen? Nope! Big Mike is still the labor day king for the 13th straight year! Yahooooo! #🔪#halloween #robzombie#labordayweekend #boxoffice

Rob Zombie’s Halloween broke the Labor Day Weekend Box Office with a $30.5* million weekend gross (previously held by MNight Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” with $29,271,146*). Commiserations to Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, which came in a respectable third overall in current figures released by Box Office Mojo. We wonder who will take on the gauntlet next year (in hopefully more normal times).
