"Halloween" Interviews

Watch my interviews with the cast and crew of Rob Zombie's "Halloween" for FEARNET RIGHT HERE. I spoke with Rob, his wife Sherri Moon Zombie (Michael Myers mother in the movie and "Baby" in Zombie's other movies, as well as the lead in the "Living Dead Girl" video), Tyler Mane (the former pro-wrestler and Sabretooth from "X-Men" who plays the adult Michael Myers), Scout Taylor-Thompson (who takes on the iconic Jamie Lee Curtis role of Laurie Strode), Malcolm McDowell (who takes over as Dr. Loomis, and of course, from "A Clockwork Orange," "Entourage"... I pointed out to him that he killed Captain Kirk and now someone in a William Shatner mask kills him on screen!), and Daeg Faerch, who plays the young Michael Myers.
