The fine, bloodthirsty gentlemen over at Bloody-Disgusting have unveiled a brand new, unused trailer for the upcoming Rob Zombie directed horror film Halloween II this evening, and it’s got me wondering about the nature of this film — is it supposed to be funny? Because I seem to be laughing.
The unused trailer — seen below — is full of potential spoilers, so be warned. As well — and I know I’m going to catch some heat for this as some of this footage is obviously unfinished — the film appears to be shot like something we would see from The Asylum, something that you might see going straight to DVD. It is poor, just plain poor. So bad, in fact, that I wasn’t engaged enough to glean anything from this trailer about the plot or whether or not this film will deliver the scares that the first one so sadly missed. What I do know is that Michael Myers is coming back, he’s doing it because of a “stupid holiday” and he still hasn’t learned to stay out of that damned mirror. Then again, no one ever accused him of being an efficient killer.
For more, please check out the video for yourself below. Personally, I will be searching for a way to get these precious minutes of my life back. Halloween II is in theaters on August 28, 2009.
