JoBlo took a break from printing fantastical nerd letters and pulled an old Rob Zombie interview that sorta makes him look like an ass.
I haven't been covering Zombie-related news lately, mainly because a remake of Halloween sounded really boring, but also because Rob Zombie is in his forties and still dresses like a goth kid. Oh, and he still uses the last name "Zombie", which would only be cool if he married an annoying yuppie bitch and had a kid named "Aiden Zombie". But I digress…
Here’s what Zombie said [back in 2002] in reaction to be asked what he thought of remaking TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE:
"I feel it's the worst thing any filmmaker can do. I actually got a call from my agent and they asked me if I wanted to be involved in a remake of CHAINSAW. I said no fucking way! Those movies are perfect — you're only going to make yourself look like an asshole by remaking them. Go remake something that's a piece of shit and make it good. Like with my movie I have elements of CHAINSAW in it because I love that movie so much, but I wouldn't dare want to "remake" it. It's like a band trying to be another band."
I remade a piece of shit into an ashtray once, I thought I made it look pretty good. Sometimes I put them in the freezer for later space docking use. There's always that.
