Horror legend JOHN CARPENTER did a Q&A session with students at the New York Film Academy, and one of them asked him about ROB ZOMBIE’s remake of his horror classic “Halloween”. And he kind of went off on Rob.
Quote, “He said I was very cold to him when he told me he was going to make it. Nothing could be further from the truth . . . I was incredibly supportive. Why that piece of [crap] lied, I don’t know.”
In case you’re wondering, Carpenter didn’t like Zombie’s movie, either. He said there was too much backstory on Michael Myers, whom he originally created as a “force of nature.” Also, Michael was “too big.”
