Trailer for Rob Zombie’s 'H2: Halloween 2' online

The trailer for

Rob Zombie

’s follow-up to his awful remake of

John Carpenter

’s horror classic “Halloween” is online.

While Zombie claimed to be a fan of the original, after seeing his remake one can only deduce that in reality he must have hated it.

His remake was rife with clichés, short on scares and made me question his competence as a filmmaker.

In the remake, when the young Myers dramatically kills his sister while Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” is playing in the background, all I could think of was the iconic SNL "More Cowbell" sketch with Will Ferrell and Christopher Walken (it centered on that song).

The original "Halloween II" is by far the best of the "Halloween" sequels.

I hope this sequel will be better than the remake, but I saw nothing in the trailer that makes me think it will.

We’ll hope.
