I don't think Rob is a bad director by any means. He is quite fantastic really. The problem is when someone asked him to do a halloween remake he made a momentary slip of judgment and said "yes" instead of kicking the living shit out of whoever was dumb enough to suggest such a stupid idea. The remakes are very good horror films in their own right IF you pretend michael myers wasn't shoe-horned into them. It is IMPOSSIBLE to properly remake a film once it has been deemed a classic. And yet all the big horror icons (Jason, Myers, Leatherface, and Soon to be Freddy and Chucky) have been remade.
I wanna see Mr. Zombie do some more horror, just NO MORE REMAKES! Astro Creep is indeed a good album btw.
