Horror movie Director Rob Zombie knows more about it Carnival film franchise than most — he directed two of the slasher movies in 2007 and 2009 in a long-awaited reboot. Scout Taylor-Compton gave her take on Laurie Strode while Tyler Mane, who stands at 6’8, took on the role of the iconic villain of the movie Michael Myers.
While his Movies of the 2000s received a lackluster response both at the box office and among critics, the Halloween franchise has since had another soft reboot, with David Gordon Green directing a new trilogy of films that saw Jamie Lee Curtis return as Laurie Strode – a character who played in the original thriller movie Carnival.
After the Green reboot was released in 2018 (also called Halloween), it was followed by 2021’s Halloween Kills and, most recently, 2022’s Halloween Ends. Halloween movie looks to end Michael Myers’ reign of terror for good, and as a recent release, it’s gathering a lot of buzz as people look back on Zombie’s films in a different way.
Zombie expressed mixed opinions about the latest Halloween movie, as well as mocking the response to his own movies in a hilarious Facebook post, which included a meme of a man saying in 2007 that Zombie “ruined the Halloween franchise.” and then the same guy in 2022 said Zombie “saved” the franchise.
Accompanying the meme, Zombie wrote: “I’ve been bombarded with these and it just keeps getting funnier. FYI – I have no opinion on the new movies. I haven’t seen them yet. My experience making my movies was so crazy that I was really burned out on Halloween. Sad but true. I just think the internet is hilarious.”
