ROB ZOMBIE Talks 'Halloween 2'; Audio Available

GordonAndTheWhale.com recently conducted an interview with rocker-turned-writer-producer-director Rob Zombie. The chat is now available for streaming below.

A new "leaked" trailer for Rob Zombie's fourth film as a writer and director, "Halloween 2", can be viewed below. According to Zombie, this trailer "is way cooler than the ones you've been seeing."

Following the success of Rob Zombie's initial reinvention of John Carpenter's smash cult horror film "Halloween" which premiered number one at the box office breaking all Labor Day Weekend 2007 records, comes the sequel, "Halloween 2", hitting theatres nationwide on August 28, 2009 from Dimension Films. The enormously popular horror movie series is back and so too is Rob Zombie, who once again puts his own twisted twist on the soundtrack. "Halloween II - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (Hip-O/UMe), released August 25, 2009, and co-produced by Zombie, manages to bring together dialogue from the film as well as music from MOTÖRHEAD, THE MOODY BLUES, SCREAM (sans future member Dave Grohl), ROD STEWART, the MC5 and FOGHAT, alongside new psychobilly band CAPTAIN CLEGG AND THE NIGHT CREATURES.

Frightmaster Zombie helmed 2007's ninth installment in the "Halloween" franchise that began in 1978. "Halloween 2", which debuts August 28, picks up where "Halloween" left off, and focuses on the struggles of Laurie Strode (played by Scout Taylor-Compton) and killer Michael Myers (played by Tyler Mane).

Prior to entering the film world, hard rocker Zombie scored a series of multiplatinum albums — 1992's "La Sexorcisto", 1995's "Astro-Creep: 2000", and 1998's "Hellbilly Deluxe" — as well as platinum with 2001's "The Sinister Urge" and 2003's greatest hits collection "Past, Present & Future".

In addition to his recording career, Rob Zombie has written and directed several successful feature films, including "House of 1000 Corpses", the sequel, "The Devil's Rejects", and is the is the producer, writer and director of the forthcoming animated film "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto", based on his comic book series, "The Adventures of El Superbeasto".
