Rob Zombie talks about Halloween 2

“We’re going to do something completely different,” Zombie told MTV News. “We haven’t gotten to that point yet so we could change our minds, but we want to do something totally different. The movie is very raw and very rough looking so the score has to [reflect that].”

“The score’s going to be tricky. We’re going to have to find a really sort of dissident ambient score. Unsettling rather than traditional score which seemed too grand and too musical so we have to find the right [tone].”

Zombie’s directorial vision for “Halloween 2” doesn’t stop with the musical ambience though. He’s also delivering an entirely new – and dare we say, almost realistic – take on story, which delves deep into the mental aftereffects of how the surviving victims in Haddonfield would really react to a psychotic murderer that looks like a walking nightmare.

“Really the movie is all about people who have kind of gone crazy, and they’re all dealing with their with their insanity in different ways,” said Zombie. “Laurie was the withdrawn character, and now she’s sort of the outgoing crazy character. Annie was more outgoing, now she’s very much almost like agoraphobic, afraid to leave the house. Sheriff Brackett is a wreck, looks he’s like one year from retiring so he can just go to the funny farm. Dr. Loomis is in complete denial about everything, and exploiting the situation and making as much money as possible while hating himself.”

That’s all well and good, but what about the film’s misguided antagonist, Michael Myers? How much will his character be revised in “Halloween 2?”

“Michael is crazier than ever,” assured Zombie.
