View Full Version : What would YOU call this Halloween?



Franchise
02-27-2007, 11:12 PM
It sounded like fun when I was sitting here looking around. What would you call Rob Zombie's Halloween if you were in charge? There's only 2 restrictions though to something like this. With respect to Halloween and John Carpenter, you can't just call it Halloween or Rob Zombie's Halloween. You can use any other title you want. For example, Halloween: Evil Comes Home or something of that nature. Good luck gents and ladies!

EDIT! TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY! IT'S NOT TO BE TAKEN TOO MUCH AS A JOKE! THANKS!

Of course, everyone knows I'm tempted to say "Halloween: Spirits of the Dead." ;)

I'll have to give it some real thought before I post anything serious on this subject. Good titles don't come easily...I'll have to chew on this for a while.

Guiser :ThE Night he came home.

Guising(i presume from disguise) is what the The scotish and Irish Call Trick or Treating. I just thought it sounded Good as the roots of halloween stem from Celtic folklore and the festival of Samhaim.

Good thread. Tough thread too.
A few ideas:

• Halloween: The Wrath of Evil or Halloween: Evil's Wrath
• The Night EVIL Came Home
• The Shape of Terror
• Birth of the Boogeyman
• The Legend of Halloween
• Return of the Haddonfield Slasher (this one is awful:D)

It's tough for me to add subtitles to the "Halloween" without it sounding like another sequel.

I would have MAYBE called it "The Night HE Came Home" I would have certainly considered it.

Not highly original of me, but getting rid of the halloween title all together would have been a little original, right?

Infact, I have had some great ideas of my own re-imagining of the original halloween movie, and thought it would be a perfect oppertunity to pen my first script ever. The Night He Came Home would be a perfect title for my idea because my idea is still soley based around the layout of the original

You know what they should do? They should call it "The Babysitter Murders", which was the original title for "Halloween". It's like Zombie could have his own little franchise called TBM and Dimension could still come back to the old "Halloween" franchise. Same movies, but with different titles. Eh?

From a studio's point of view, the whole point of doing a remake is to exploit a title that has been established as profitable. So that idea would never fly.

Muse
03-02-2007, 06:53 AM
You say we can't call it 'Halloween' but how about using a tagline that works as a kind of sub-title, is that ok?

e.g
Halloween
Evil Comes Home..

(That's not an actual idea, just an example btw)

And I know that it could be used as part of the title, but since its a reimagining and all it wouldn't seem right to add more to the name, just work a different tagline into it.

Halloween - The Beginning sounds good enough to me. I know its been used before but wasnt Resurrection already used in previous films, Alien stands out most notably.

Reborn or Rebirth as others have mentioned also sound good to me.

I would personally prefer a subtitle other then just "Halloween" or "Rob Zombie's Halloween".

H-Field Hero
03-02-2007, 01:03 PM
I'll be honest, I think no subtitle or tag line is the way to go here. To me it runs the risk of coming off very cheesy. If anyone doesn't believe me, just look at some of the cheese ball suggestions/examples made in this thread (no offense :p). Also, since this is a remake a subtitle would feel kinda funny and almost too self-referential because we already know the basic story of Halloween despite what Rob decides to do with it.

If a subtitle is used then I think the best thing would be to make it very simple. An example would be "the beginning". I don't want them to use that because it doesn't really fit the film, but it serves as an example of an effective short and sweet subtitle.

I agree. No subtitle or tag line is the way to go. "Rob Zombie's Halloween" is what i would name it. I'm not really a fan of subtitle's or tag lines.

I have to agree. I took a stab at it...but really, I'll have a hard time thinking of this in terms of anything other than what it is: Rob Zombie's Halloween. Using a subtitle would make it seem like a sequel, and probably cause more confusion than it's worth amongst those who aren't "rabid fan" types like us.

MMyers89
03-02-2007, 05:08 PM
I agree as well. Most of the suggestions in here come off as extremely cheesy (sorry, haha). I know the thread said not to say just Halloween or Rob Zombie's Halloween, but I think that is the best route, considering it is a remake.

scoob
03-02-2007, 05:10 PM
I am probably in the minority with my thinking about the subtitle - it does make more sense to release the movie as "Rob Zombies Halloween" more then it would with a subtitle.

I would only like it for personally selfish reasons in that it makes the divide between the seperation of the series seem smaller. Kind of like on the lines as if they still called it "Halloween 9".
Going all out with "Halloween" instead of "Halloween - blah blah blah" really makes it clear cut that the old series is dead and buried.

So, yeah I do agree it is the right thing to do but since this is just a topic about what would be nice to see, thats pretty much it lol

I think Rob Zombie's Halloween is the best. Thats what John Carpenter did
with the original (I think it translates as John Carpenter's Masterpiece). I think since Zombie is truly making this his own and not a sequel or remake, that he should just put his name above Halloween and call it good.

Franchise
04-05-2007, 08:53 AM
It's just going to be called Halloween. I'd like to think that people giving out ideas here and voicing against calling it Halloween - Subtitle here is what helped it out. Rob says he doesn't look a lot online, but I hope he looked here and saw what the popular opinion was.

HALLOWEEEN:ZERO-Basically in the 1990's a lot of comic book series had a zero issue which retold the origin of the book's character, and added some new details to it. Or some hints about upcoming storylines. That would be the title I might go for. Another one that pooped into my head after seeing the teaser would be ULTIMATE HALOWEEN taking a cue from the Marvel Comics line that's been reimagining its characters.

Actually, Zombie made it clear that he wanted Michael Myers to be more of a human than a shape in this "re-imagining" of the series. I personally just like the title: HALLOWEEN. It's the beginning again, and subtitles like the beginning are just being overused....like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (although it was a great movie).

Just HALLOWEEN!!

Go the Rocky Balboa root and just call it Michael Myers, perhaps with a "The Night He Came Home." type description underneith, hopefully suggesting it's a remake/reimagining of the original like "A New Night, a New Evil". That way I think it eases the pain of the die hards a bit more in seeing the separation between the two franchises.

I would call it 'rob zombies piece of crap remake of Halloween'. Anyone else read excerpts of the 'early draft' of the script? Looks like rob zombie really wanted to make another corpse film with plenty of gore to entertain his adolescent mind. Hope it fails at the box office. Meanwhile I will be watching the original while blissfully ignoring the hell out of anything rob zombie ever does. Have a nice day.

Uh, there's a reason it's called an "early draft".

God, I wish people weren't so obsessed with something that amounts to nothing.

A bit harsh don't you think? The early draft has changed a bunch of times so I wouldn't go crazy just yet. Rob Zombie behind Farrand's and Carpenter is the only man that actually gives a shit about what the fans think and actually gives a shit about Halloween so I would give him some respect until the finally product is released on August 31st. Have an open mind go watch the film and then come back here and let us know what you thought. If you go in dissapointed, you will come out dissapointed. Simple as that .. SO KEEP AN OPEN MIND when you watch it for the first time.

Yeah I can agree to an extent, especially after Zombie's comments regarding what Carpenter thought about him making a remake of the film. But he does care about Halloween thats for sure, unlike all the other idiots that were writing, directing and producing some of the films in the series.

O contraire I do not think it was harsh enough. Rob zombie is just a trendy rock star who is trying to make a trendy remake of a non-trendy film. The mans obsession with gore and 'shock horror' is likened to that of a 12 year old who just saw faces of death and said to himself 'oo lala I like, i think i make my own movie bout this same thing now'. Honestly I am no one to judge his music, but everything about rob zombies personality tells me he is making a piece of trendy crap of a remake. But alas, you will see it for yourself when it comes out in AUGUST. AUGUST! Did I say AUGUST? Halloween is now a summer movie? Another thing I hate about rob zombie. He caters to trendy little kids. This is evidenced by him making michael myers out to be, well, a trendy little kid who happens to dabble in self mutilation or whatever that silly script said. Oh that and the fact that he has long hair now.


The early draft has changed a bunch of times so I wouldn't go crazy just yet.
The fact that it was even in the 'early draft' reveals what zombie cares about most. GORE and 'shock'. Oh look out kiddies here comes rob zombies hour of blood, guts and s&m. Oh how original. All that stuff is done to death, none of it is shocking and if anyone watches it with the feeling of being anything but bored to hell I would start taking prozac immediately. Subtlety is what made the original the unique masterpiece that it is. Let rob zombie do what he wants, I just will not support it with 10$ of my money that I could be using to feed a homeless person or whatever.

I have no doubt he likes the original film but that doesn't mean anything. Alot of people like it. I doubt rob zombie likes it more than anyone on this forum. Doesn't mean he is not making a piece of crap remake. But alas, you shall see, oh you shall see.

"Oh, look at me! I read the very early draft and now I can see into the future. Fuck what anyone else says because I read the early draft and I know exactly what the fuck the movie is going to be."

Give me a break. All your complaints are superficial and, in light of the fact that the screenplay has changed so much since that early draft, quite lame.

And your seriously chastizing the film for being released in the summer? I guess you never saw H20 or Resurrection.

That commentary was more about rob zombies psychology than anything else. Everyone is entitled to their personal psychology of course, some are subtle, some are more extraverted, but the problem is people do not leave their personal psychology at the door when dabbling in someone elses creation. In this case John carpenters Halloween. This film will be strewn with rob zombies psychology, including his obsession with phony 'shock horror' and gore. The fact that it is even in the first draft reveals that.

I saw them post release on cable television and they sucked. And anyone who thinks anything else about them is delusional, regardless of relative taste. Do you know when the original was released? On Halloween! You know autumn time, when the leaves are rustling and it's kind of cool, windy and spooky out, so that gee, maybe the film would uh coincide with the season? So that, gee, maybe people will actually feel it when they watch it? Oh wait rob zombie must be making the global warming version of the film so it doesn't matter either way, especially when we consider what a 'shocker' it'll be. ooo lala.

Do you even know what a first or early draft is? It's where you get all your ideas out about what you want the film to be. Then, from there, you edit it down until you get something that works. That's one thing you can't seem to look past: the fact that it's an early draft and has changed a lot. How do you know for a fact that these things you so despise are going to be in the finished product? The answer is: you don't. You and I and everyone else on this fucking board know nothing about what will be in the finished product, so none of us should act like we do, and that includes you.

As for your last paragraph, you avoided talking about the fact that both H20 and Resurrection were released in the summer just so you could bitch more about how much you're not going to like this movie. That's ridiculous, and it definately shows your "psychology" as you would put it.

And seriously, why are you blaming Zombie for the film being released in August? He has no control over marketing, so why blame him? Maybe because you just needed something else to complain about? Who knows.

I am not a fan of Rob Zombies movies, but hell I will give him a shot, AND I won't call something crap just off a early draft!

Plus, what I respect about Zombie is that he signed up to THIS FUCKING FORUM AND WAS ACTUALLY ASKING US WHAT WE THOUGHT OF SOME OF HIS IDEAS. Since he took the time to do that, I will take the time to go watch his movie and make my decision on whether I liked it AFTER seeing it.

Your going to tell us in your next post that you hate the CAST that ZOMBIE picked also ... :malakia:

He didn't really care what we thought.

He is an artist with his own vision, and a few fans won't change that.

Then why did he sign up to the forum? Let me guess, it was a publicity stunt ...
We obviously had something to do with his "vision", besides we will be paying 10 bucks to see the film.

But this isn't even the point, it takes a lot of guts to come on here, Zombie isn't a normal director/writer etc. he is a celebrity who really doesn't need to come on here and hear every little kid bitch and moan.. I respect that, and this is one reason I will go see the film, regardless if I agree with the making of the remake.

I'd take a page out of Sylvester Stallone's book and simply call it "Michael Myes" or "The Shape". Considering this is not supposed to be a remake or have anything to do with the previous "series", as well as the fact that it focuses only on Michael Myers, well I think it would work well.
