There may never be another "Halloween" film for director Rob Zombie. Being interviewed by MTV at San Diego Comic Con 2009 during which he promoted his upcoming movie "H2: Halloween 2", the director stated that he will not make a third "Halloween" movie, saying "No. I could not see that in any shape, way or form. Never."

However, Zombie, who previously directed "Houses of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects", refused to explain why he is unwilling to be involved in the third installment of the film. "If I told you [why], you wouldn't believe me," he stated. He moreover added that he doesn't have desire to share his reason, saying "And, I don't want to tell you."

Similar statement was previously released by Zombie when talking about possibility of "H2". Back at that time after he finished directing "Halloween", the helmer insisted that he wouldn't return to do the sequel and if Dimension Films wanted to make the sequel, they would have to do it without him. Soon after, however, it was announced that he will be involved in the second film.

Rob Zombie's 2007 "Halloween" is a remake to John Carpenter's 1978 film. It follows the premise of the original film with Michael Myers stalking Laurie Strode and her friends on Halloween night. "H2: Halloween 2", on the other hand, witnesses the time Myers returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illionis to bring "closure to the secrets of his twisted past." Tyler Mane and Scout Taylor-Compton are among the original cast to reprise their roles in the sequel, which will open in U.S. theaters August 28.

Jeeeezzz Rob Zombie. Thanks for ruining the Halloween series and Michael Myers. :/ The actors are good, but the plot sucked. No offense, but if you want to create a remake, watch the movies before you mess up everything like you did. Michael Myers should never die. His sister can but not him! God you made me cry watching him die. Michael also needs to be more clean shaven and less hair and clean to make him less human which in my opinion would make the move more desirable to watch. He also needs to wear the mask more often so he doesnt reveal his human nature. I hope whoever does the Halloween 3 makes it about Michael Myers and cleans up the dirt you left on his name.

I forsure think he should do another one, the remakes of 1 and 2 he did were fucking amazing could watch them over and over and not get bored, he's a genius.

I'm glad he's not doing it. Halloween was all about Michael Myers. As brilliant as the original was, and to a lesser extent, it's sequel, John Carpenter never should have agreed to doing Halloween III. That movie sucked donkey balls.

Rob Zombie's re-imagining of the original Halloween movie has to be one of the biggest disasters of all time. He had no clue what made the original so successful and turned Michael Myers into a pathetic joke. I'm glad he's not making any more Halloween movies, but the damage has already been it doesn't really matter.

sorry Rob,but if you can't bring something new,with respect to the original idea then you realy shouln't bother.story and casting,not good.

I became a fan after halloween 2007 came out the story was great I think it a shame that rob zombie it's not doing h3...who ever does the 3rd one should the story line latex out by zombies with the same actors...

Rob Zombie is the most brilliant director and film maker i have seen in yrs he keeps up with wes craven and all of the big names!! Half of the ppl that is trash talking him you guys dont sound like ur over the age of 12 with no education maybe u should spend a little time in a class room rather then watching horror movies and the reason there was a white horse was to show the phsycology portion of his phsycotic behavior and let see his mother must of had the same mental phsycosis just didnt show. You guys are ignorant!!!

the frist one was good but the secind one what the what was up with tht??? why was there a white horse and his mom this isnt friday the 13th rlly and im glad rob stopped making them cuz they sucked. why not find out what happend to lauries son what happened to him he just forgot about him rllly come on but i cant wait to see halloween3 in 3d who is directing tht but yea im glad rob isnt directing them anymore

when rob zombie re-made the first film,it turned out to be a master peice. perfect job to zombie. When rob zombie made the second film i personally think it was another master piece. people think the white horse was a mistake, but when u think about it, it shows whats going through michaels mind. But what was a mistake was the fact it showed Laurie Strode(Angel Myers)crossing over to the darkside. I believe Zombie isn't making a third film because people thought it was crap and it didnt make scince. Well i loved both and I think Zombie should carry on to the third film and make up for some of the mistake. Adding on to zombies film I see Laurie in a mental hospial for over 5 years and they let her out. And some how michael finds his way back home. the movie should be full of action and lasting about 2hrs and 30 mins long. and at the end michael should finally be finished. And Rob zombie if you read this. I loved your movies and your halloween movies were perfect. I dont care what anyone says. You should continue h3.

Rob, you rocked the house with both 1 and 2. I think you would do great on Season of the witch. Also, i think halloween the movie,means something different to everyone who gets into it. Season of the witch, to me was more about how evil lives among us.It also has alot of answers in it about michael meyers, watch the movie again people and pay close attention this time. Rob will do great on part 3 and I look forward to seeing it!

i think rob zombie should stick to music. the original halloween is my favourite movie of all time and he has ruined it. i saw h2 tonight and was extremely disappointed. i cant believe how bad zombie made it. his vision of whatever he wanted his version of the halloween films to be, is a complete joke.

mr.zombie please make a h3 coz 1,2 was brilliant you should now it would be wicked. and then maybee you would make it better than the origonal one.... PLEASE.
posted by Jeff on Feb 27, 2010
He's obviously not making a third because everyone hated the second and won't bother paying to see another .The studio knows it, he knows it. Zombie sucks as a filmmaker. I can't believe he makes money.

I couldn't wait to watch this movie, but what a load of bollocks that turned out to be. The film sucked big time & the previous Halloween was way better. Rob man, your going downhill! He really fucked it this time . . .

I am th biggest fan of the halloween movies nd i think that its so stupid that yu remade the movies why remake them? In halloween resurection Michael was not even dead he woke up why leave us hanging on the end.Dont get me wrong halloween 1 nd 2 were good by why try to make halloween the end?....I think if yur going to try to remake 2 movies then remake then all.I mean we never even ounf out what happen to Laurie's son as far as we knew he ws still alive.Point is yu should finish the storie!..

people saying that they shouldnt mke a remake to season of the witch. the only reason behind season of the witch was to make a new story micheal was only ever surpose to be in halloween 1 and 2 (orginals) the 3rd was surpose to be a new story then the fourth being something else. the ony reason micheal returned for the fourth was because fans demanded he came back somehow cos they thought halloween was nothing without michael. sort your history out on the halloween saga not just watch the films. also the end of halloween 2 with laurie in the aslyum could be how resurrection started

i think he should make a 3rd but dont remake season of the witch and think about it he he did season of the witch the white horse the witch riding it no one should complain i mean i understand if he cant think of many ideas he probably put all ideas of 8 into 2 maybe hes just prepping and will mak a third in a year or 2 you never know i say make a third but you do what you half to do rob zombie you kick total ass

robs vision for no1 was great, this however did not live upto it.may be after watchin this back he realised he fucked up and that is why he isnt doin a 3rd?
posted by Dime333 on Dec 15, 2009
Why is everyone complaining, oh michael dies at the end, robs shit! Bla bla bla. Doesn't he die at the end of most halloween's. Ill do its right. I think rob(if he makes a third) it goin 2 make every one believe michael is not comin back. Then bring him back for 4, return of, hopefully doin a better job then the original.
posted by i\'ll do it on Dec 15, 2009
evr thought that rob is taking everyone away from the idea of micheal myers returning for halloween 3 cuz he aint in the original one is he. he could be using the laurie story line to fill in for that piece of random crap 'season of the shit' so '3' still has some sort of link to the franchise.

Continue the series from Halloween Ressurection, where Laurie somehow survives the fall of the Sanitarium and walks off. That would be awesome
posted by mrgodwalsh on Nov 21, 2009
the first one was great but i didn't like the fucking horse thing that was stupid and at the end i didn't like the whole thing with the sister most likely going to be the next killer that's gay i think if rob makes H3 he shouldn't have Micheal dead and lets pray he doesn't remake season of the witch that was horrible... it was very disappointing but i really hope u make a third one I'm such a big fan of Halloween but i hope it is better than H2
posted by Hell Membuaner on Nov 16, 2009
There remaking the season of the witch, and probably the whole series as well. Rob Zombie will direct the third, and by the time of the fourth installment they will have laurie strode as the new myers killer.

I thought the movie was awesome!! please make a 3rd Mr Zombie!! I was slightly dissapointed with the ending, but that can be easily salvaged with H3! Great film, make a 3rd make a 3rd make a 3rd!!!! Please

I love the original Halloween, was impressed that the 2007 worked as well as it did but just got home from the sequel... POOR! What shame. No middle - and what the hell(!) was all the crap with his mum?!

Can we really tell ourselves that H2 was a great movie? I mean, yeah, the gore was amazing, but that doesn't make a movie great, even with a movie like this. A bunch of the characters in it were a waste of time to watch on screen and the whole 'white horse' theme that Rob gave out pretty much was forced. Think about it. Where can the series go from here?

great film very hardcore crazy and unexpected and stylish , gore and scary creepy best film give rob the credict best film wats wrong with ppl i hope the film earns way more then it did and does a gud job over this weekend and week cus man wat a classic it was very new fresh and different and great film

if they do make another halloween this time they really have to kill micheal off or lauri but if they dont kill him off they shouls let him kill his sister or whoever then walk off or never b sean again and that he never dies but if they do kill him off then it would b the last film plus they have to stop sum point in time cus u cant keep remaking the whole seris and keep making halloween films dont get me wrong ima true fan i just dont wanna see the movie turn to shyt cus ppl dont kno wat they doing with the film thats y i say rob is the best 4 the job if they gana keep making more either they should kill micheal off or let him live and then not make anymore films every again and let the films go down in history in a gud way as the best icon horror films makers and film of all time so great movie again rob love the films

I seen the second and was very dissapointed. Rob Zombie changed everything that made that originals great... Especially the characters! The Halloween Fan (screen Name) was completely right. It's about the suspense and stalking not the gore with halloween. And the character's attitudes were completely horrible to the og's. Loomis is supposed to be like a nemesis but in these COMPLETELY OFFFFFFF!!!! PISSSEED OFF! And pissed they sort off ripped off friday the 13th with michaels mother telling him what to do. And Halloween 4 with Myer's niece as the new myers too was copied. O not to mention this was probably just to put Zombie's wife in the movie again ARRRRRRRGH!
posted by halloween fan on Aug 30, 2009
the second movie was fucking AWFUL....These movies arent about the gore, its the suspense of the SHAPE stalking its victims. The hospital being a dream was a good idea, but Laurie being the new Micheal is just like H4. And yes i understand Laurie went through something traumatic, but she was nothing like she used to be. This is just a fan highly dissatisfied with this one. Hope if they make a third one they can salvage it

That is sad. I have been hearing rumors that you are doing a third one and that you were working on it in your trailer while making H2. By the way, you said this before and so I think you are bluffing. You just want the attention taken off you for a while so you can do it, right? Everyone says that you are doing it and it is secretly being worked on bit by bit right now!
