Artist: "White Zombie"
Album: "Astro Creep: 2000"
Label: Geffen Records
Dear Rob Zombie,
Remember when you used to work with this band back in the day instead of putting out remakes of one of the most beloved modern horror movies in which you find new ways to somehow shoehorn your wife into a ridiculous scene involving Michael Myers and a white horse?
Remember when you put out this classic album featuring songs about murder, the undead and more which featured clips from a variety of horror and cult movies?
Remember how your songs sounded like a psycho circus from hell mixed with all the metal and techno driven beats one could ask for which became all the more evident when you went on tour with the band?
Remember when your crazy song titles such as "Grease Paint and Monkey Brains" and "El Phantasmo and the Chicken-Run Blast-O-Rama" were only rivaled by the artistic creativity shown in your music videos?
Do you remember it all? Good, because I remember those days too. So what say you put down the film camera and pick up the microphone. Are we in agreement? Great. I'm glad we had this talk.

|"I feel it's the worst thing any filmmaker can do (remakes). I actually got a call from my agent and they asked me if I wanted to be involved with the remake of Chain Saw. 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 (House of 1000 Corpses) I have elements of Chain Saw 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. You can sound like The Beatles, but you can't be The Beatles."|
