Whether you think this is good news probably depends on what you thought of Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake. ‘Arrow in the Head’ recently found a recording of an interview with Zombie from HDNet’s 13 Nights of Halloween, and during it he was asked which film he’d like to remake. His answer:

 “One thing I always thought was possible was to remake The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Because the creature itself, in that phenomenal suit they constructed, could be exactly the same. So I think Creature from the Black Lagoon could be a cool one”.

While not liking his Halloween much [though it improved a little on a second viewing], I do like the idea that, if he does get the chance to make this film, he wants to stick to the original suit which, with maybe a few modifications [and hopefully minimal CGI], should hold up pretty well today. But since October last year we’ve heard no more of this, and I think that the chances of it happening are minimal – but you never know.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
