Let’s take a look back to Rob Zombie’s re-telling of the HalloweeN story and the ways it was released to DVD and Blu-ray in North America. Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007) gave us a new Michael Myers (played by Tyler Mane) and a new Mask. It also brought veteran actors (such as Malcolm McDowell, Dee Wallace and Brad Dourif) into the HalloweeN franchise alongside new talents (like the lovely Kristina Klebe). And, it goes without saying that we all enjoyed having Danielle Harris back.

In 2007, movie fans and information geeks were able to follow the creation of Rob Zombie’s Halloween very closely. Zombie himself revealed the entire cast via his MySpace page. Even as the film was being shot, there were many tales about what was going on. There were rumors that the dialogue in the script relied on excessive profanity. Prototype artwork and posters were released. There were stories that Michael Myers wouldn’t be like he was in previous movies – that Myers would be more agile and less robotic, more human and less supernatural.

Before the movie was officially released to theaters, a nearly completed “workprint” version of the film was leaked online. Information about the making of Rob Zombie’s Halloween was available to anyone who had the time to look for it. In this respect, Zombie’s Halloween from 2007 was unique. No one had to read Fangoria or needed to have industry contacts to find out the latest about the new Halloween. Most of the reliable news was on the Internet, on forums such as Michael-Myers.net. Zombie’s Halloween was one of the first major studio films of the Internet age. Most aspects relating to the movie’s development were available at an instant.

Presented here is Zombie’s Halloween after its theatrical run. When Halloween made its debut on DVD in December of 2007, it wasn’t much of a surprise that two versions of the film were released. By the time the DVDs were announced, fans had already watched the film in theaters and had seen the bootlegged workprint. They knew that both versions were quite different.

The Theatrical version was released as “Halloween Two-Disc Special Edition” on DVD. The version that was different from the Theatrical and that contained elements of the workprint was named “Halloween Unrated Director’s Cut: Two-Disc Special Edition.” Each version featured different cover art. If you were a HalloweeN fan in 2007, you would’ve wanted to get your hands on both of these DVD releases. (In the U.S., a Hot Topic Exclusive version of Halloween Unrated Director’s Cut came with an “Authentic Rob Zombie Autograph”).

Both Halloween and Halloween Unrated Director’s Cut have the same special features on the second disc. On the first disc of both editions, you get the feature film plus a great audio commentary by Rob Zombie. Obviously, portions of Zombie’s commentary vary for each version of the film. Interestingly, the Theatrical version of Halloween comes in both widescreen and full-screen versions. This feature is absent from Halloween Unrated Director’s Cut.

In October 2008, Rob Zombie’s Halloween was re-released as “Halloween 3-Disc Unrated Collector’s Edition” on DVD (and “Halloween 2-Disc Unrated Collector’s Edition” on Blu-ray). Even though it came with new artwork, the main draw for this new edition was the new 4 and a half hour long documentary on the making of Halloween. You can only obtain this massive documentary by buying this re-release, it’s not available separately.

The Unrated Collector’s Edition DVD came with a cool slipcover of the different artwork, which focused on Michael Myers’ mask. The Blu-ray Unrated Collector’s Edition didn’t come with a slipcover. If you were a HalloweeN fan in 2008, you would’ve wanted to get your hands on this new release on DVD or Blu-ray – mainly for the new documentary. The completist would have wanted to pick up the DVD (in addition to the Blu-ray) just for the slipcover.

The Theatrical Edition of Rob Zombie’s Halloween was not re-released on Blu-ray with the documentary. The Theatrical Edition would come out on Blu-ray later on as part of a Blu-ray Double Feature. This Double Feature, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II, and some relevant autographs will be covered here next time.

Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection http://www.michael-myers.net/halloween-resurrection-michael-myers-masks/ http://www.michael-myers.net/halloween-resurrection-michael-myers-masks/#comments Sat, 12 Jul 2014 00:00:54 +0000 http://www.michael-myers.net/?p=12801 Continue reading ]]> In this casual pairing of two Michael Myers masks, it’s the Burnt versus the Mister Blister. Both masks are representations of the scene with the coroner at the conclusion of Halloween: Resurrection. Michael Myers was in a body bag and was wheeled into the morgue. Myers had been fighting off trespassers for most of the film. Things seemed to have ended very badly for him. Myers was found dead after being electrocuted and charred in a fire in his own garage.

The good thing is that Michael’s eyes opened (so, he appeared to have survived getting his ass kicked by Busta Rhymes and Bianca Kajlich). Even better than that, though, is that DangerTainment was put out of business forever after the events of Halloween: Resurrection. Busta Rhymes’ acting career subsequently cooled down – he wasn’t even called to guest star on Oz or The Wire.

michael myers mask resurrection melted 05 Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection

This fried and melted version of the Michael Myers mask can also be seen in Halloween: Resurrection‘s various alternate endings. The two Michael Myers replicas in this comparison are the Burnt (the lighter mask made by Frosty) and the Mister Blister (the darker mask made by Nils).

michael myers mask resurrection melted 10 Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection

Other members of this site have posted pics of these masks, but there don’t appear to be a whole lot of them out there. Two reasons come to mind for this. First, these masks were limited runs to begin with. Second, Halloween: Resurrection isn’t among the most acclaimed or interesting HalloweeN sequels (or horror movies in general).

michael myers mask resurrection melted 07 Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection

michael myers mask resurrection melted 09 Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection

The Burnt seems to be made using a mass-produced Cinema Secrets H8 mask. The simulated fire damage is done directly onto the mask, it’s not sculpted (so, these masks vary a bit from copy to copy. There is also at least one copy that has a full head of hair). The colors used for the destruction make a nice contrast with the white portions of the mask. The Burnt is gory and bloody.

The Mr. Blister is an original sculpt. It’s made of thick latex, and the heat damage is sculpted into the mold. These masks were numbered (the highest number seen on the forums is copy #4). The Mr. Blister’s shadowy paint gives it a smoky, crispy and cadaverous look.

michael myers mask resurrection melted 01 Michael Myers Masks vs. Halloween Resurrection

Both masks are small. Out of the two, perhaps the Mr. Blister mask can be worn. These masks may be used chiefly for display purposes. They’re both very cool and collectible Michael Myers replicas. In the end, what we have are two different takes of, and two distinct approaches to making the same mask from the end of Resurrection. [For what it's worth, I don't vouch for any mask-maker's reputation. Always do your own research and check the feedback forum before dealing with anyone].

Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombie’s HalloweeN http://www.michael-myers.net/scalene-hanna-hall-rob-zombies-halloween/ http://www.michael-myers.net/scalene-hanna-hall-rob-zombies-halloween/#comments Mon, 07 Jul 2014 00:01:40 +0000 http://www.michael-myers.net/?p=12816 Continue reading ]]> Hanna Hall played Judith Myers – the elder sister of Michael Myers – in Rob Zombie’s HalloweeN (2007). Judith didn’t survive beyond Michael Myers’ childhood, so we didn’t get to see a whole lot of her in the movie (besides having a jerk tell her that he wanted to “do it” with a Michael Myers mask on). In Scalene, directed by Zack Parker, Hanna is one of the film’s three main protagonists. She plays a college student named Paige Alexander.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 01 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

Scalene (2011) opens with Paige fighting against a burly woman named Janice Trimble. Before we can find out why they are fighting, the film’s opening credits are displayed. After that, the story shifts to an event before the fight.

At a meeting, we see Paige, her parents, a prosecutor, Janice with her son Jakob and their defense attorney all seated. They’re going over the details of a plea bargain. Apparently, the 26 year-old Jakob was charged with committing some terrible crime against Paige. Jakob seems to suffer from a neurodevelopmental disorder and he cannot speak.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 02 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

While Janice maintains that Paige is lying and that Jakob is innocent, the defense lawyer states bluntly that, “It’s her word against his… and he can’t speak.” The terms of the agreement are that Jakob will be sent off to the state hospital for therapeutic rehabilitation for several years. Jakob is subsequently taken away.

It becomes apparent that Scalene’s story is non-linear. Things either unfold regressively or events are presented from different perspectives. The transitions between each piece of the overall story could’ve benefited from better editing. Sometimes, the screen simply fades to black. Another time, a dizzying montage conveys that the story is moving into the past.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 03 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

The title of this film, “Scalene,” is a word used to describe a kind of triangle. A scalene triangle is one where the three sides are all of different lengths (and the three angles inside such a triangle are also different from each other). This film tells its story using those defining properties of a scalene triangle. The narrative unfolds from three different standpoints: Janice’s, Jakob’s and Paige’s. Each of these characters becomes the focus of their respective segments.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 04 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

Jakob’s take on things is shot mostly from his literal point of view, we see exactly what he sees. It’s a confusing portion to watch since the filmmakers tried to replicate how Jakob’s disability affects his world view. Jakob suffers from “anoxic brain injury,” explains Janice. “It occurs when there’s a severe lack of oxygen to the brain.”

Paige had answered Janice’s ad seeking a care assistant. Janice wanted a break from caring for Jakob, while Paige sought to gain valuable work experience in the field of social work. Eventually, Paige becomes overly involved with Jakob and with what she believes is transpiring in the Trimble household.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 05 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

Sometimes Hanna Hall performs with her eyes closed, half-closed or looking down but she’s decent in her role. The film lacks emotional punch. It is missing a dramatic subtlety that would help generate sympathy for the characters. However, the aforementioned elements do add to Scalene‘s realism (reality can be imperfect, harsh).

Paige’s perspective in Scalene is perhaps the one you will want to seek out, to learn her version of events. This latter half of the film unfolds smoothly, and the story raises questions for us to consider.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 06 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

Overall, Scalene may be seen as a critique of the health, police and legal systems. Scalene calls them out for being reactive instead of preventative. These systems only act when something bad has already happened. They’re not known for being very proactive in stopping bad things from happening. In Scalene, Paige feels forced to take action because she believes that none of the aforementioned systems can help her.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 07 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

A curious aspect of 2011′s Scalene is its relation to the film Compliance (2012). Margo Martindale, the actress who plays Janice Trimble in Scalene, looks like actress Ann Dowd, who plays Sandra in Compliance. For the duration of Scalene, I thought they were the same actress. The characters that Martindale and Dowd play in their respective films are also very similar. There’s much more to this. A Scalene versus Compliance piece is definitely in the works.

hanna hall scalene rob zombie halloween 08 Scalene with HANNA HALL of Rob Zombies HalloweeN

Scalene is a drama that has to be given points for striving to tell its story in an unusual way while maintaining a sense of plausibility. The role of Paige is a weighty one for Hanna Hall. She does an adequate job. Scalene‘s first half is somewhat unengaging because it takes time to get used to its narrative style. Once it shifts to Paige’s story, things become tighter and more focused. Even if you are able to predict what will happen by the middle of the film, you’ll still want to see how things happen.

Let’s welcome the new season with your Michael Myers Masks and Halloween costumes, even though it’s hardly the time to be wearing coveralls and a latex mask (although I know that the heat won’t stop some of you from dressing up). This time of year also means that Halloween, October 31st, is getting closer and closer. It’s a great time to pick up a mask you’ve been wanting for a while, so go ahead and get ready for October.

I still can’t believe that this is happening, it’s a dream come true. Now I just have to save up the money to buy this thing when it comes out. It kind of makes me real glad that I was never into collecting DVDs that much, and now we’re going to get this definitive box set with every film in the HalloweeN franchise.

The Origin / A HalloweeN 6 Michael Myers Mask http://www.michael-myers.net/origin-of-michael-myers-mask-review/ http://www.michael-myers.net/origin-of-michael-myers-mask-review/#comments Fri, 20 Jun 2014 00:01:16 +0000 http://www.michael-myers.net/?p=12739 Continue reading ]]> New Michael Myers mask replicas are abundant these days and they are being produced by a record number of mask-makers. The Michael Myers Mask hobby is currently living through a time of plenty, so it’s fitting to revisit a mask from the past. The year was 2006. Back then, just a handful of people and companies made Myers replicas, and new HalloweeN masks were sporadic.

Haunt Productions created two masks in 2006. One of them was a take on the classic HalloweeN 1978 called the October 78. The other was named the Origin. The Origin was an original sculpt made in the likeness of the mask that Michael Myers wore in HalloweeN 6: The Curse of Michael Myers. The name “Origin” was inspired by the fact that, before HalloweeN 6 was released, some trailers stated that the film’s title was HalloweeN 6: The Origin of Michael Myers.

the origin of michael myers mask 03 The Origin / A HalloweeN 6 Michael Myers Mask

While the Origin was made in 2006, it still holds up as a better H6 mask than several other, more recent H6 sculpts and replicas that claim to be casted off of movie-used materials. (The October 78 also remains a very good H1 mask). Because of the plethora of masks that exists today, the Origin is a lost mask. It’s also a rarity, since Haunt Productions didn’t get to produce many of them.

The reason that Haunt Productions didn’t make more of these Origin masks is because the company couldn’t keep up with the demand for its products. Eventually, the number of orders that came in didn’t match the number of masks that were leaving the shop. Poor customer service and communication followed. The guy who operated Haunt Pro subsequently ran off with a lot of people’s money. (Sadly, it’s a pattern that we’ve all seen repeated to this day).

the origin of michael myers mask 01 The Origin / A HalloweeN 6 Michael Myers Mask

For HalloweeN collectors who seek out hidden treasures, the Origin mask is one of them. For an original sculpt, the Origin successfully captures the essence of the Michael Myers mask that we see on the screen. The mask doesn’t have weird eyes, blue paint, skimpy hair or a ridiculous receded hairline. The Origin evokes several scenes from HalloweeN 6. Most notably, a scene that this mask brings to mind is one where Kim Darby looks up at Michael Myers before he swings an axe at her among hanging sheets.

the origin of michael myers mask 02 The Origin / A HalloweeN 6 Michael Myers Mask

No costume shots this time. The last time I dressed up as Michael Myers to take photos for an article, I received a disturbing message. The message was from “Craig Foreman,” webmaster of Confused.com. Craig wanted me to do him a big favor. The “big favor” involved me wearing coveralls but no Myers mask. He also wanted me to get a kitchen apron, lipstick and a pair of socks (I’ll spare you the rest of the details). I didn’t agree to his request. So, no costume shots from here on out.

Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN http://www.michael-myers.net/shiver-danielle-harris/ http://www.michael-myers.net/shiver-danielle-harris/#comments Thu, 12 Jun 2014 00:15:10 +0000 http://www.michael-myers.net/?p=12367 Continue reading ]]> Danielle Harris has gone up against some of horror’s most notorious killers and monsters (e.g. HalloweeN’s Michael Myers, Hatchet’s Victor Crowley). In Shiver, released in 2013, Danielle battles Mr. Rood a.k.a. The Griffin, a very boring and disappointing villain. It hardly matters that Shiver makes good use of the rainy atmosphere of Portland to give the proceedings a moody tone. The character of Mr. Rood/The Griffin is so distractingly bland that he almost overshadows everything else in the film.

danielle harris shiver film review 01 Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN

There’s a good idea at the heart of Shiver. It’s the notion that a lonely woman finding her place in the world could overcome the rage of a lonely man who never found his place in the world. It’s not a new idea, but in Shiver, Danielle plays the part quite well. Danielle Harris is Wendy Alden, a single young lady who doesn’t lead the perfect life of her fantasies. Wendy has financial troubles, she has an insufferable mom, and she has a dead end job. In her day to day life, Wendy is passive and prone to daydreaming.

Wendy seems destined to lead an unfulfilled life. Things change when serial murderer Mr. Rood chooses Wendy as his next victim. The horrifying ordeal awakens in Wendy the senses of life, of survival and of hope that she was lacking before. Unfortunately, Wendy’s story gets bogged down by Shiver’s lame villain and the lazy and unimaginative script.

danielle harris shiver film review 05 Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN

The writing makes everything either too convenient or too unbelievable. Wendy can’t bring herself to ask for a raise at work from her boss, a man laughably named Mr. Cashman. The cops investigating The Griffin’s crimes are inept (e.g. they had made an incorrect assumption about the kind of weapon that Rood was using to decapitate his victims. It was Wendy who ended up giving them the correct information).

The Griffin was difficult to track because, incredibly, the cops had absolutely nothing on him – no motives and no leads (even though The Griffin taunts the police with recorded messages on a cassette, old school style). Then, later on, upon raiding The Griffin’s house, one of the detectives states the obvious, “Jesus… he was right under our nose.”

danielle harris shiver film review 06 Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN

For things to unfold as they do in Shiver, Mr. Rood has to be a criminal mastermind. Rood’s crimes span many years and locations, but it’s still not enough to explain how he continually outsmarts everyone. On the screen, Rood doesn’t come across as being particularly bright. Since he’s into sexual homicide, Rood is shown doing most of his thinking with the wrong head (not the one between his shoulders). So, the disparity in intelligence between him and the cops is an artificial and forced one.

danielle harris shiver film review 02 Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN

While Rood is dorky and graceless with the opposite sex (in addition to being a psychological mess), he is no Francis Dolarhyde or Norman Bates. He doesn’t inspire fear or sympathy from the viewer. The goofy-looking Griffin lurks about at night wearing prescription glasses, a knit cap and all black like a cat burglar. He has an irritating voice, and, after committing one of his murders, he offers such gems as, “I hope it was as good for you as it was for me.”

danielle harris shiver film review 03 Shiver with Danielle Harris from HalloweeN

Shiver could have been more than what it is. Had the script been tighter and had the story explored Wendy’s side of things more, Shiver could have been something notable. Danielle Harris’ subdued performance in Shiver should at least serve as a contrast to her melodramatic portrayals of Marybeth in the Hatchet films.
