View Full Version : Which of the characters do you have a hard time seeing someone else playing them?

If you were to compare the characters from the Halloween 1978 - Rob Zombies version, which one do you have a hard time seeing being played by someone else. My vote would go to Dr. Loomis because aside from Michael he is the most known character. After that it would be Laurie, but after her everyone else seems kind of minor to me.

No one really. They're different movies.

Agree with you on that

[One minor problem I ahd with RZH is that Brad Dourif lacked the energy & spark that Charles Cyphers gave to the role of Sheriff Brackett. And by the way these are not two different movies 'cause the latter could not exist without the other- comparisons are a given. Having said that I am a bit fond of RZH. The unrated DVD really changed my mind- except I could do without that rape scene in the sanitarium.QUOTE=Superman;669990]No one really. They're different movies.[/QUOTE]

Probably Annie. I liked the character in the original and hated her in the new movie. Danielle could have certainly made her return in a better fashion.

I am glad we have a lot of Loomis votes even though I like Malcolm Mcdowell

It doesn't really bother me, but if I had to pick one I guess I would pick Loomis.

No one really, but I guess Loomis simply because Donald was in more movies than anyone else.

I voted the new Laurie, but it wasn't because I had a hard time with the replacement.

I just didn't like her at all.

I voted Dr Loomis, that role is Donald Pleasance and I still have a hard time with Malcolm McDowell in the role.

Dr. Loomis. Nobody can beat the man w/ the hypnotic eyes...

Brackett, but now that I've seen the movie several times, I like the character more.

Dr. Loomis

Laurie. With Loomis as a close second.

Laurie .... used to seeing her as a virgin and so shy lol

I agree although it was a far different film and I guess they had to have the characters be different as well. I love Danielle Harris but couldnt help saying to myself over and over I'd rather see her as Jamie as opposed to Annie.

Loomis without a doubt. Hell, Donald Pleasance(sp?) was Dr. Loomis to so many fans of the series. No one could ever play that role like he did.

05-22-2009, 08:13 PM
Loomis because Donald played him in six movies and then now three later we get another its not and never will be the same, no respect to Malcom.

05-22-2009, 09:21 PM
There will never be another Dr Loomis. Donald Pleasance owns this character. Although the new guy isn't too bad.

05-23-2009, 12:32 PM
Definitely Loomis!
No one else should have played him.
Pleasence was tha man!
But seeing Laurie beeing played by someone else was really strange in the beginning,too.

i didn't like any of the characters. it was a different movie, but i wasn't impressed at all. the fact that it's a remake of a classic, has made me lose respect for the movie. i watch it for the thrills, but i didn't like the script or the atmosphere.

I've had a hard time getting into someone else playing Loomis from the moment I heard "Halloween Remake". Pleasnace loved his character, and being part of the Halloween movies. Although McDowell, didn't do a bad job, I just can't see his Loomis. Donald Pleasence is, and always will be, Dr Sam Loomis. He will forever be remembered, and may he always rest in peace.

No one can EVER replace Donald Pleasence.
