Rob Zombie recently talked to MTV.com in depth about his "Halloween" remake. Here are some excerpts:
MTV: Talk about the plot of John Carpenter's 1978 classic versus the plot of your "re-imagining."
Zombie: The plot is so simple [in the original]; it's this young kid Michael Myers. We've changed it a bit — in the original, he kills his sister; then he's sent to Smith's Grove Sanitarium, which he later escapes from as an adult; comes home and starts randomly killing babysitters. Later, in sequels, they made [his back story] more significant — but in the first one, it's pretty random ... I've added a lot more to it, and I've tried to make everything he did be motivated and justified in some way, so it's never random killing for no reason. There's a reason for everything.
MTV: Most people hear "Rob Zombie's 'Halloween' " and assume it'll be the classic movie with tons more blood and gore. Is this accurate?
Zombie: No, not really; there's not tons more blood. I'm not really a fan of '80s slasher bloody movies. [They've] always bored me ... I like character-driven movies. [This] is really violent and really intense, but it's because you get swept up in the characters ... a bloodbath doesn't interest me.
