With another Halloween reboot currently in the works, 1428 Elm is digging into Rob Zombie’s 2007 version to present ten things about the film you didn’t know.
Rob Zombie’s Halloween is a horror movie genre fans either really love or really hate. Regardless of how you might feel, it’s certainly unique. With David Gordon Green’s reboot coming next year, let’s peel the curtain back on Zombie’s version to present 10 factoids you may not know.
10. Michael Myers was afraid to compete against Jigsaw
It seems like a no brainer to release Halloween movies during the Halloween season. Its title alone should be a dead giveaway. That’s why John Carpenter and David Gordon Green are releasing the next movie on October 19, 2018, just in time for next year’s trick-or-treat night.
Well, when Rob Zombie’s Halloween was heading for theaters in 2007, October was its original shoot date for a release. However, another horror franchise had been dominating October for the past few years by that point. Saw IV was gearing up for a release in October of that year, and Halloween‘s studio was leery about going head to head against Jigsaw. As a result, the Halloween remake was released two months earlier, coming out on August 31, 2007.
