I love John Carpenter’s original Halloween, but I’ll admit up front that I’m no fan of Rob Zombie‘s 2007 redux.  Between his lack of subtlety and style and that annoying, little, pouty girl playing the young Michael Myers throughout the film’s first half?  Fucking dreadful, monotonous, and boring.  But like a stereotypical abused wife I’m happy to give additional chances to folks who probably don’t deserve it, so I’ve been looking at Zombie’s upcoming sequel with an open mind.

Until now.

Per Shock Till You Drop, Michael Myers will spend about 70% of H2 without a mask.  Myers, the iconic masked boogie man, will walk around for most of the new film with a beard on his face instead of a mask.  Note to Zombie… a dude that looks like the lost and retarded fourth member of ZZ Top is not scary.  Special effects man Wayne Toth says “That’s Michael’s new look for a lot of the film. Fans will be shocked. They seem pretty responsive to it. But it’s like anything else, as long as you’re doing something cool, people get it.”  Check out STYD for more disappointing quotes from the man including how the eventual reveal of Myers’ brand new mask will throw “fans for a loop.”  I can only assume William Shatner is gonna be pissed…

Should this even be called a Halloween film anymore?
