|Home: BigScreen Journal - Rob Zombie Revisits Halloween on Labor Day Weekend|
Back in 1978, director John Carpenter introduced us to Michael Myers and debuted a new era in horror. Here we are, almost 30 years later, and 7 sequels and/or remakes have been done. Rob Zombie is hoping that 8 is his lucky number, as he brings us "Halloween (2007)."
It's somewhat mystifying to me as to why you bring out a horror film titled "Halloween" so long before the holiday it's named after? Even a month from now would allow audiences to enjoy it as a build-up to the scary holiday, but how many people want to be scared on Labor Day? Maybe they're hoping to grab the college crowd that is back at school but classes haven't started yet...
Unfortunately, there's not much else from which to choose for new movies this weekend. Even reaching back to this past Wednesday will get you "Balls of Fury," that ping pong action comedy I told you about last week.
Still holding strong in the box office rankings is the holdover hit "The Bourne Ultimatum." After four weeks of release, the movie hit #2 again, beating out the newcomers. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out!
