Ever since the third installment in the rebooted horror franchise centering around the silent murderer Michael Myers (that of course being Halloween) was announced, there have been rumors about who would direct the movie seeing as Rob Zombie wouldn’t return for a third round. So who will fill the hairy shock rockers shoes? Another hack, of course!
Zombie’s replacement will be frequent Wes Craven editor and My Bloody Valentine 3D director Patrick Lussier, who aside from directing that horrible remake also has directed the equally bad Dracula 2000 plus its two DVD sequels, Dracula II: Ascension and Dracula III: Legacy. So with Lussier behind the wheel on this accident waiting to happen, what little faith I had in this project after hearing that Zombie was not going to go near it, has now vanished. But heck, who am I kidding, come next summer I’ll probably end up watching this anyways hoping for a good laugh, a scare or two and some cheap 3D thrills. What about you? Is Lussier’s involvement happy news, or are you still hoping for something better to come along?
