For some, Halloween was the scary-as-hell movie from the 1970's that catapulted Jamie Lee Curtis to legendary Scream Queen status. For others, it might just be the movie that Randy keeps going on and on about in Scream -- "Jamie, behind you!" As with any movie that's sufficiently creepy in its original format, a remake will come one of these days -- Psycho, The Exorcist, Dawn of the Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre -- you name it. The latest in the string is Rob Zombie's Halloween, which he has beencookingupfor a while now.

The movie is finally getting release on the very-scary August 31, and the website has now gone live. It starts off as any scary site should -- with a knife slowly getting covered in blood. Before you go to skip the intro, you might want to check it out -- especially since it is one of the only bits currently on the site. It's got a look at Michael's world and a few short movie clips as seen from behind the mask. And then, well, then you're inside and you've got a nice "Full Website Coming Soon" alert and the trailer. So, if you haven't checked out the moving images goodness, you should. While I still can't bring together Scout Taylor-Compton and Jamie Lee Curtis into one Laurie Strode in my mind, the movie is looking pretty funky. I mean, how can we resist since "Inside every one of us, there exists a dark side. Most people rise above it, but some are consumed by it!" Whether it's as loved as the original remains to be seen, but I think it will be entertaining either way -- it would be hard not to with Malcolm McDowell, Udo Kier and Danny Trejo.
