So here we are on Part 2. The last thread was really prone to go off topic easily. And there were a lot of us guilt of that, myself included. Let's try to keep this one as on topic as possible.

This thread will be the place to come for the Teaser as well as all subsequent trailers and TV spots that are released between now and the big the day. Enjoy!

There was some talk of Laurie's crib in Michael's bedroom in the last thread. Someone pointed out on another board that baby Boo also has a Raggedy Ann doll in the crib (like the one on Laurie's dresser in the original and in Resurrection)

Here's a question.
Now that we've seen the teaser trailer, what if this wasn't a remake but was the first version of Halloween. What if John Carpenters original Halloween had never been made and Rob Zombies version was the first and only. Do you think people would watch the teaser and get hyped up to see the movie?

We would not be as hyped without the history. The movie looks great, but it would be probably just another slasher film

I'm sure there were, but the original wasn't a hit from the start. It built up its audience over weeks and months. Back then, movies stayed in the theaters a lot longer than they do today. In other words, its success came from word of mouth, not anticipation due to trailers. Today, a lot of bad movies are successful financially because good looking trailers build up the anticipation so that the movie will have a huge opening weekend. Back in '78, the quality of a movie was its main bread winner.

Yeah the trailer for the original was a mess in my opinion, but then most trailers were back then. It was just a bunch of scenes strung together with a guy saying 'Halloween!' every few scenes. Plus it showed quite a few of the better scenes that would have been better left unseen until the movie.

From the teaser trailer, I really don't think this movie would hype a lot of people. You have to admit that Carpenter's film was liked by both Horror fans and Non-Horror fans. I doubt Zombies film would make such an impact. Zombies film will bring in big bucks and fans but all thanks to the Original, not stand alone.

The interesting thing is that that's the red band trailer. Anchor Bay only ever puts out green band versions of the trailer (I say versions, because I think we concluded that the Halloween trailers vary on some of the AB issues of the film). I'll have to compare that with the green band one sometime.

Todd
04-11-2007, 07:30 AM
I saw Halloween in '78 and knew nothing about it beforehand.
My dad took me to a lot of movies, but I don't recall having seen a trailer for Halloween before seeing the movie. I might have, but if so, it left little impression on me. I guess there's no good way to answer the question I initially asked about the current trailer. We can't judge its ability to hype the movie because a lot of anticipation is built in due to the success of the original. When I saw Grindhouse, people started clapping when they saw Michael putting on the mask. If it was the first time they had seen that mask, I doubt anyone would have put their hands together. That doesn't mean they wouldn't have been interested, but obviously no one would have thought, "Oh sh*t, that's Michael Myers and this is a Halloween movie!".

Green band trailers are for any audience while red band trailers are meant for adult audiences. In the theatre business you still must be careful with green band trailers and kiddy shows. I once spliced a "Silence of the Lambs" trailer on the front of the original "Home Alone". I had several parents come out and complain. I took it off before the next show.

It makes no sense to me that when putting out the dvd, AB wouldn't include the red band trailer over the green band. At least Uni had enough sense to put the H2 red band trailer on their release of the Halloween II dvd. Knowing them though it was probably the only version they had readily available so it's appearence on the disc was luck heh.

If you had seen the movie in the theater during its initial run, I seriously doubt you would have guessed that the killer was a six year old. As far as it being in the trailer, most people who went to see Halloween back then did so because someone told them it was good, not because they had seen the trailer. Like I said earlier, my father took me to movies almost every weekend, yet I don't recall having seen the trailer for Halloween before seeing the film itself. I clearly remember a strong reaction from the audience when it was revealed that the knife wielding maniac who had just commited murder was actually a child.

It's the little things like the Raggedy Ann doll that means so much to all of us die hard Halloween fans...lol at least for me.It shows that Rob really paid attention to detail.Laurie had the doll sitting on her dresser in the original and then another Raggedy Ann doll in H8...although I'm sure it's not the same doll but it's funny that Raggedy Ann made it back for the remake..lol:) I wonder if the teenage Laurie will have the doll sitting on her dresser...I wonder if Michael gave it to her...is it an important prop..hmmm..the possabilities..I'm thinking way too much here...:crazy:

If memory serves me right a RED band trailer is actually showing a red background when the trailer begins. Out of all the trailers I have here at the house I only have a couple of real red band ones. Over all the years I've been around theatres I've seen very few red band trailers. The problem with the red ones is you had to have a "hard" R movie showing to run the trailer. You couldn't put it with a PG, PG13 or G movie. I guess it would only go on a hard R flick. In some of our theatres there would be weeks of NO "R" rated movies playing so Red band trailers didn't do us much good. But to answer your question....no, not all horror movies have a red band trailer.

Sweet, thanks for the info. And yes the green or red background at the very beginning of the trailer is what indicates which type it is.

I was really excited when I saw in the trailer michael with the sheet and glasses on walking up behind I guess Linda. I'm alright with Rob remaking or re-imaging as he likes to call it now. But I'm glad that he decided to keep such a classic scene from the original. I wonder if he strangles her with the phone cord or if Rob re-imaged that part too.

If she doesn't see him in the sheet, that would kind of defeat the purpose. She probably sees him, gets pissed when he won't say anything, and turns her back on him, just like Linda did in the original.

Well, if Bob is about 6'3 or so and Linda is drunk and still coming down from having just ridden the hobby horse with him, I guess it's not at all implausible that she could get fooled by the four or five inch taller Michael. I'll have to be a real fan boy and check the bio of the actor playing Bob to see if his height is listed.

Lynda might not even look at 'Bob' when Myers walks in. She could be too busy with her nails or some shit. Or, she could be using the phone and Michael walks in and pops up behind her. Whoppee.

I loved that Thanksgiving trailer xD. I love the Halloween trailer even more though. I thought it was amazing, I loved the movement of Michael in the trailer, some parts just creeped the hell out of me. My favourite is when he's walking down the street at night chasing Laurie, and his head kind of changes positions slowly, as if he's just monitoring her.. It's just scary haha.. Did anyone feel bad for that poor mouse? I'm so happy to see Danielle back too!

The guy playing Bob is considerably taller than Kristina. Kristina is probably about 5'10" in heels so if that guy playing Bob is 6'5 or so you probably wont gauge the size of someone 6'8 when wearing a sheet.

FUR IS MURDER! MURDERER! Someone should dump paint on Michael Myers, and run an ad campaign with pictures of Elton John spanking his bare ass.

Those dogs died for a reason, know your role animals.

Naw, I still feel bad for the poor little animals :(, I'm sure a tear will slide down my cheek once that fucking dog starts barking outside the house Annie is babysitting in..

hmmm, not sure who it could be then, cause the only other male cast member they have on the site cast list is Daryl Sabara (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0754512/bio) and his character is not named yet. From that video the guy is MUCH taller then Lynda who (Kristina Kiebe) (http://imdb.com/name/nm1640351/bio) is only 5'8. Daryl Sabara is listed as 5'6... so who is Bob?
I am sorry for my mix up earlier of Paul and Bob. I think its funny we are actually going to meet Paul. I remember sometime back having an entire thread devoted to what Pauls lazy ass was doing when Annie was killed. Funny that now we might actually get to see it.

Will we get to see others dressed up like Michael Myers in this film then ( much like halloween 2 )? Not that it will add anything significant to the movie or anything hehe..

Thanks for the camera footage too.. Seeing the height of that guy makes me feel bad for her xD. Michael Myers is going to be one big sumbitch.. He'll lay the hurting on her :(..

Ohhh, Yeah, I was thinking of the guy that got hit by the car :(. Paul is the guy Annie was talking on the phone with that night.. I guess it would be nice to meet him hehe. I think there's only one reason he wouldn't be with her though. CHEATING. Fucking men.

hmmm, not sure who it could be then, cause the only other male cast member they have on the site cast list is Daryl Sabara (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0754512/bio) and his character is not named yet. From that video the guy is MUCH taller then Lynda who (Kristina Kiebe) (http://imdb.com/name/nm1640351/bio) is only 5'8. Daryl Sabara is listed as 5'6... so who is Bob?

And considering the fact that Daryl is 14 or 15 years old so I don't think he'll be playing Bob. I bet he'll play one of the bullies.

EvilOnTwoLegs

But Paul is Annie's boyfriend. From that shaky cam footage:
attP1tnLOGQ
The guy playing Bob is considerably taller than Kristina. Kristina is probably about 5'10" in heels so if that guy playing Bob is 6'5 or so you probably wont gauge the size of someone 6'8 when wearing a sheet.
Well, just looking at Bob in that footage, he's obviously a male of the "tall" and "lanky" variety. Judging from the point in the video where he's standing next to the van, he looks as if he tops 6'5". So the difference between his height and Michael's will be pretty much negligible.

Once people reach a certain height, it's pretty difficult to distinguish a matter of inches. It's all simply defined as "fucking tall." If Lynda is expecting it to be Bob under the sheet, given the circumstances, she'd have no real reason to assume otherwise. Besides, Michael was slightly taller than Bob in the original, as well...and none of us have a problem with that.

And I'm glad Zombie cast another tall guy in this film. Not just because it's the only way for the "Ghost" scene to make sense...but also because it illustrates the fact that being tall is not some ridiculously uncommon or freakish condition. I think it helps take the edge off the "Michael's too damn tall" argument. There are tall people in the world...Michael's simply one of them. And by casting other tall actors in the film, Zombie helps to make this more obvious.

Yes, but in the movie trailer...
Lynda (I'm assuming) is shown crawling down a hallway all bloody-looking with a sheet wrapped around her...perhaps she gets away from Michael somehow and is killed in another manner?

that's actually Judith

Why isn't the name of the actor playing Bob listed in the cast summary on HM.COM or any of the other sites I checked out? They have the names of actors playing even bit parts, but not Bob, who be one of Michaels most memorable kills?

I have a friend who ate dog while he was in Korea. He said it was really good. Personally, I have to say that I don't see the big deal in that, either. I mean, I love dogs as much as anyone I've ever known...as pets. But they don't raise them as pets in countries where they're eaten. They raise them the way we raise cows and pigs...as livestock. What's the difference?

If you ordered a hamburger in India, they'd be way more offended, what with cows being considered sacred and all. And yet, that doesn't stop Americans from eating millions of quarter pounders a year. What's the problem with eating a dog? Meat is meat.

This is true. But some people will still piss and moan when Myers takes out an animal, or ask where it's "immoral" for Jason to kill a pregnant girl...as if killing a girl who isn't pregnant is a right neighborly thing to do.

Bottom line...if you're paying to watch murder on the big screen, you really have no right to get all moralistic about it.

Because...people are stupid. I think we've established that point.

Wild rats can carry diseases...just as much as wild dogs can. When you're bitten by a strange animal, it doesn't matter if it's a dog or a rat...you still have to get a rabies shot. And domestic rats don't carry diseases.

As for the Black Death, that was only what...650 years ago? You'd think we'd be over it by now. And that was fleas...fleas on rats. The rats were just as much victims as anyone else. It was when the rats died of the plague and their fleas found new hosts that the plague spread to humans in Europe.

In the end, most people just don't like the way rats look. It's the same mentality that makes it okay to eat some animals, and evil to eat others. After all, we shouldn't kill cute animals. Yeah, people are fucked in the head.

Really, we have to look at it from outside the box. As fanatics, we're going in with a lot of pent-up excitement when we first see the trailer. That's one of the main reasons that so many people here loved the teaser, I think. It's a fucking Halloween trailer...it shows footage from the new film...of course people here are gonna go nuts.

I'm sure the full trailer(s) will be a lot more substantial, and will help to bring in a wider audience. This teaser, to me, seems to be mainly for the fanboys and fanatics. The kind of people who are chomping at the bit for anything Halloween-related...the kind who have been dying to see some footage from the new production...the people who have been waiting for a new Halloween film for a long time. People like the ones who frequent this nuthouse. :D

The trailer makes the movie look alot better than I expected, they look like they made the same mistake as H20 with the mask though, way too much space around the eyes. I prefer it to look like utter darkness under the mask.

The eyeholes aren't really too big...it's just the lighting.

Personally, I've long since given up on seeing a Halloween film with fantastic lighting. It hasn't happened since 1978, and I don't think we'll ever see it again. It was so stylized in the original, and it was absolutely perfect.

But this is a difference film, and they seem to be going for more realism...less stylistic. So this lighting seems to work for that. I'll have to see it all in context, though.

Bogatyri
04-13-2007, 09:55 AM
What seems real scares me more then what is fake. I think that was always what drew people into the Michael Myers character. That there was some element of the story that could really happen. Not like Freddy Kruger who comes in your dreams of Hellraiser who comes for a box. This guy was a real person and he could come after anyone. That is what truly made him scary.
Realism is the way to go. I am not saying you need a spot light everywhere he goes, cause for god sakes its fun to see someone lurking in the shadows, but we all know that Michael never has been a subtle creature. I mean he stood on the porch and watched Laurie while she was babysitting.

A little random but I found there are certain aspects to this film I'm looking forward to in this film more then others. For one this is one of the only other horror icons to be portrayed by an actual actor, the fiisrt being brad dourif in the child's play films. People may scoff at the idea of chucky but if you've seen any interviews where Brad speaks on the preperation it takes in which to conjure up the rage to be chucky, it's incredible. I'm curious to see what this will register for an essentially non speaking character, given the new character arch.


That and the small act that I can't tell when s the last time Ive seen a film in where young people are needlessley slaughtered. Granted it is cliche by now but there was always something that evoked some kind of feeling in me in knowing that young kids were gonna be getting ripped apart.

I have to admit, that trailer does have me psyched for this film. I was never vehemently against the remake, since it was going to happen either way, whether I bitched or not, but seeing that trailer, does give me some new hope. True, I'm still not on the bandwagon for all of the "new" peripheral characters being thrown in, as I believe Rob should just keep it simple, but the trailer does look sufficiently creepy.

Remakes have started to sputter off as of late, with The Omen the last remake to make a decent profit with $54.6 million. Since then: Pulse reaped only $20.2 million, The Wicker Man made $23.6 million, Black Christmas only $16.2 million, The Hitcher only $16.3 million... And not to mention how poorly some of the sequels to the remakes have been faring at the box office. I guess we'll have to hope that Dimension doesn't fuck up the marketing for this film like they did for Black Christmas. If I discover that most of the scenes from this teaser trailer won't even end up in the finished film and were shot solely for the teaser, I am going to be very angry with Dimension...

Have you seen the HALLOWEEN teaser trailer by chance? Oh crap. You should not have done that. The MPAA - who have taken a noticeable stance recently on horror adverts (see the CAPTIVITY fiasco) - has deemed the teaser all 8 million of you have already seen too violent for your tender sensibilities, and are requiring that all sites hosting the teaser make it available ONLY after 9pm. That’s right. If you’re 40 years old, living in a squalid, roach-infested one bedroom apartment, and your main occupation is looking at explicit, unthinkably degrading pornography all day, you’re still too delicate to handle the teaser for HALLOWEEN in the afternoon/early evening hours.

What exactly is so bad about the trailer? Sure, a little kid touches his sister’s leg, threatens a rat (with a nail file?), batters someone’s brains in with a baseball bat (OFF screen), we get a few glimpses of Laurie Strode running/limping, and some gratuitous shots of Michael Myers breaking through a wall and a window - but is it truly worse than any of the other trailers we see on a weekly basis? How bout when HOSTEL II informs you that torturing an American girl will cost more than lighting a fire under a Russian dude's ass?

Is this a knee-jerk reaction? Or are young children - having watched and been hypnotized by the trailer - wearing silly-yet-off-putting masks and unceremoniously offing their too-hot-for-comfort siblings? If so, I haven’t read that article, please send it to me.

Personally, I think the CAPTIVITY thing raised the hairs on someone's neck, and now we're being subjected to a short period of extra-careful tiptoeing around supposedly harmful movie imagery/advertising. Don't be surprised if flicks such as HOSTEL II have to undergo similarly strict "don't scare us too much!" regulations in the near future...

We’ll all become depraved, mute serial murderers on August 31, when Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN is released.

this is really the first time a major film studio has released one of his movies so you gotta wonder if he'd have a choice to edit or not. With the mpaa suddenly having to face the backlash of "captivity" I'm sorta afraid of another slew of pg-13 horror due to harsh ratings boards

Sure, a little kid touches his sister's leg, threatens a rat (with a nail file?), batters someone's brains in with a baseball bat (OFF screen), we get a few glimpses of Laurie Strode running/limping, and some gratuitous shots of Michael Myers breaking through a wall and a window - but is it truly worse than any of the other trailers we see on a weekly basis? How bout when HOSTEL II informs you that torturing an American girl will cost more than lighting a fire under a Russian dude's ass?

Is this a knee-jerk reaction? Or are young children - having watched and been hypnotized by the trailer - wearing silly-yet-off-putting masks and unceremoniously offing their too-hot-for-comfort siblings? If so, I haven't read that article, please send it to me.

Personally, I think the CAPTIVITY thing raised the hairs on someone's neck, and now we're being subjected to a short period of extra-careful tiptoeing around supposedly harmful movie imagery/advertising. Don't be surprised if flicks such as HOSTEL II have to undergo similarly strict "don't scare us too much!" regulations in the near future...

We'll all become depraved, mute serial murderers on August 31, when Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN is released.

ORRRRR.... you can become that depraved lunatic right now by watching the teaser below! Just cover your eyes during the parts you think the MPAA wouldn't want you to see (like that close-up of Malcolm McDowell's face. *shudders*).

Yup. It was posted a few posts behind yours. ;) I still think it's a total shitload of crap.

this is really the first time a major film studio has released one of his movies so you gotta wonder if he'd have a choice to edit or not. With the mpaa suddenly having to face the backlash of "captivity" I'm sorta afraid of another slew of pg-13 horror due to harsh ratings boards

Hmm. Maybe, but I highly doubt Rob would let them take it and make into a PG-13 movie. Hes trying to make Halloween scary again...not another pre-teen slasher. Wont happen.

Wow thats compeate shit. I really, REALLY, hope they dont demend edits, and fuck with the release date. I dont think Zombie is one to do somthing like edit out his movie, which is a damn good thing. But it will most likely push the date further.

If I remember correctly House of 1,000 Corpses was heavily edited because it was going to get an X rating, plus Universal didn't want it because of the violence. I am not 100%, but I don't believe any of the versions out for that movie are the complete movie either. Somebody could do research on that.

So, he does make edits to get the rating.

When I saw it with a fairly crowded audience at Grindhouse, most people either laughed or sighed.

The trailer makes the movie look alot better than I expected, they look like they made the same mistake as H20 with the mask though, way too much space around the eyes. I prefer it to look like utter darkness under the mask.
The theatre I was at seemed pretty enthusiastic about the trailer. Espically when the music kicked in & we see the adult Michael with the mask on. I showed the trailer to my Girlfriends mom the otherday & she loved it & she hasn't felt that way since Halloween 2.

Asfor the eyes I felt the sameway at 1st but after watching the trailer it seems to me that Michael's eyes are going to be an important part of the story. And if you look at certain scenes his eyes holes are rather black looking like in EOTL avatar.

In the early draft, Loomis finds Michael after being shot a few times/stabbed can't quite remember, but Loomis/Laurie are in the car and Michael pulls Laurie out, that explains why she's wearing Loomis's coat.

True, but the original would probably get a PG-13 rating if released today. Really, I don't think he will have a problem getting an R. It isn't anywhere near as violent or gory as say Hostel.

Yeah it most likely would. I also agree....I think were pretty much garunteed an R. No, I know we are. Also, maybe not as gory as Hostel....but dont be so quick to say not as violent. Michael is a psychopathic serial killer in this movie, more violent then the shadow lurking Shape.

Remember, what you see in a trailer, especially a teaser, don't always end up in the final product, or get changed.

Ok here are some quick thoughts after seeing the trailer:

It did give me goosebumps while watching it but that may be due to my volume being too loud and KA speakers lol.. I will admit that I am disappointed in the eye holes not being darkened although granted in far away shots they appear that way which I think adds 80% to the MM aurora...

I like the fact that Malcolm Mcdowell is playing Dr. Loomis and that they put in the ghost scene from the original... and people are right when they say the scene of Michael walking after Laurie limping down the street is creepy....it is.

Also, so far from what I have watched this movie appears to be hard core and gritty.... like sticking to the point.

One thing I will say about the trailer is that Tyler Mane seemed really affective as Michael. Especially in the close-ups. The mask seems eerily more life-like in this one for some reason. Like it's more form-fitting and has a somewhat more natural tone. Tyler moves just right and his eyes added a lot to it as well. Infact I think people are right about one thing; his eyes might very well be a big part of the character in this movie.

Well the classic story goes that when Alfred Hitchcock sent Psycho to the film board to be rated they told him that it would never pass because they could see a female breast in the famous shower scene. The film was sent back to him and he was instructed to fix the problem. Due to the nature of the filming of that scene, which if you have ever seen the actual shower you would know how hard it would be to re-shoot, and Hitchcock’s believe that what he put in the can was just fine, he did nothing. He sent the film back to the board and they cleared it.
A lot of the time it is all in how the filmmaker’s relationship with the MPAA board is. Someone like Spielberg most likely has a great relationship, and although he does not often push the limits of what can be show in movies he does get away with his far share.
I think that the MPAA goes WAY to far sometime. The issue with the trailer on Yahoo! is stupid. The problem with all of this is that parents do not watch where their children are going on the internet. It is the same garbage with TV. Television would not be nearly as regulated if parents would pay attention and regulate what their little goobers are watching. But since these parents do not, we have very regulated, censored TV and thus ADULTS cannot enjoy the entertainment that they want. It’s really sad that the federal government has to be the responsible party for children in america.
OK... Off soap box... sorry

I guess you were listening to them during or after their Songs of Faith and Devotion era.

I must post a correction to my previous post.
A few days ago I indicated that there was a full length trailer available but not sent to theatres yet.
A new trailer did arrive here in Atlanta and it was described to me as a full-length version. After a phone call this morning I discovered that the running time on the film is only a minute and a half, NOT the full length version that was described to me several days ago. This teaser trailer was in 2:35:1 format.
Sorry for misleading everyone. We know there will be full length versions but it might be a few more weeks.
I stand corrected.

Everything you see in the teaser is from the 1st two weeks of filming. Rob said lastweek that the teaser hasn't even scratched the surface of the movie, yet.

Yeah but that two weeks of filming must have covered a lot becuase we were given glimpses into michaels childhood to his finding the mask to his stalking laurie and her friends. Thats a lot of the story in my eyes.

You'd be wrong then considering Rob has said that the emphasis of the movie would be on the relationship between Michael and Loomis.

I don't believe i'm wrong because from what Ive read on rob Zombies halloween his plan has been from the begining to flesh out Myers character. This has been established before general production even began. I've heard nothing on emphasis between loomis and michael being the main vocal point.

Maybe there'll be a full length trailer attached to something like Hostel 2? Just a guess.

Probably not unless Hostel 2 is suddenly being distributed by Dimension/MGM, or Halloween is being distributed by Lionsgate. 99% of the time, the trailers attached to movies are for the companies producing the flick.

I can't wait to see this movie... though I'm a bit nervous on the part of making Michael seem more human. I think that if it's done right, it will be superb, but would be very hard to make it work. One of the things I loved of Michael Myers character was that he was blank and emotionless... I think that made him terrifying, he showed no care, he was there to kill you and hunt you down, never running away and no matter what you did, you always knew he'd be coming after you. If Michael seems too human, or too emotional, he may seem weak... any thoughts?

There was some talk of Laurie's crib in Michael's bedroom in the last thread. Someone pointed out on another board that baby Boo also has a Raggedy Ann doll in the crib (like the one on Laurie's dresser in the original and in Resurrection)

The Rag Doll also shows up in Halloween II.During Laurie's flashback/dream when she sees a young Michael Myers sitting on a chair.

I'm with ya there, man. Honestly, I'm pretty fucking sick of the "cast line-up" posters. Dimension has been really big on those ever since Scream. But really, it's about the most unimaginative thing you can do with a poster. Hopefully, they'll try something different this time around.

zombie commando
05-17-2007, 03:40 AM
Whatever the poster is I'm hoping it's painted. I love those old school painted horror posters. They were much better than the photoshoped crap we get now that pass off as posters for flicks.

I also got around to reading the leaked script, and I hope to the Invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster in the sky that it's a total fake.

My take on the teaser:

It was exciting to see a new Halloween PERIOD. The teaser made me believe "Oh wow, it's not too bad" then comes the scene where loomis is talking about the "Eyes of a psychopath" then POW! Door breaks open and walks in the boogeyman. For the first 20 or so viewings the feeling was that this movie felt real. It felt like, even for a few seconds that "So this is what it would be like if this were real events"

Maybe the lighting? my crap sound system? who knows, but just for that first few scenes after the door explodes open and mike walks in the movie felt really geniune to me.

Way to go rob.

Good eye! I really couldn't catch that since the trailer is pretty fast, well IMO. I didn't notice that at all but yeah, that looks pretty much like a crib and the same doll!
Ugh, I just don't like how in this movie, he's going to be torturing animals. *cries* I'm not keen on that. And yes I know the animals aren't really being hurt and it's just a movie, it's the thought that bothers me.

I heard rumors on the net that Dimension would be attaching the full-length trailer to 1408, but alas, it was only the teaser trailer. Which was actually cool too see since I hadn't seen it attached to any films yet, and have only seen it on the net, and on the Hannibal Rising DVD. But I'm actually itching to see a full-length trailer, and was really hoping to see it attached to either Hostel: Part II or 1408.
