I love The Rob. I love The Halloween. I'm one of the few film snobs that I know that openly acknowledge that a remake doesn't HAVE to suck. They just generally do when the remakers are talentless hacks. JC himself proved this point when he remade The Thing, and made it his own.
Hopefully rob can bring something to the table here. cautiously optimistic about this.
PS I read that the zombie Halloween trailer will be showing with Grindhouse. Yet another reason to catch Grindhouse in the theater.
