RT Takes a Peek at Halloween and The Mist at Comic-Con

Dimension debuts scenes for two horror flicks.

Dimension Films debuted scenes from Rob Zombie’s
remake of Halloween and the
Stephen King
adaptation, The Mist. The panel started off with a bang as Rob Zombie made a stirring entrance to his classic, "Dragula."

Audience members stood up to pay
homage to the legendary rocker/director as he introduced
Halloween

cast members Tyler Mane,
Scout
Taylor-Compton
, and
Sheri Moon
. Before starting their panel, they showed an exclusive clip from
Halloween

to the crowd. Unsurprisingly, the scene is set in a dark room lit only by
the moon through the windows. Michael Myers (Mane)
is dragging a dead body across the floor as the camera cuts to a hidden corner
of the room where Laurie (Taylor-Compton)
is seen crying and covering her mouth in fear of making any noise. As Michael is
seen leaving the room, Laurie rushes to the dead body to retrieve a gun when all
of a sudden (cue scary music) Michael is behind them. With gun in hand, Laurie
runs to the attic and tries to hide from Michael yet again. Instead of chasing
her, Michael proceeds to grab 2x4s of wood and repeatedly smash them
through the ceiling. After four tries, the ceiling collapses and Laurie
falls through as we cut to black and the Halloween title yet again.

During the Q&A session, Zombie said that although he wanted to retain classic
elements from the 1978 original, keeping it too similar would be pointless. An
aspiring filmmaker asked for advice, to which Zombie replied, "If you don’t mind
people telling you you suck all the time, then this is the business for you." A
reference to the 15 percent Tomatometer for
House of 1000
Corpses
, and the 53 percent for
The Devil’s Rejects
?

Also premiering was
Stephen King’s
The Mist,
presented by director
Frank Darabont
himself. The clip starts off with a group of guys peering
under a slightly-raised garage door. Mist is flowing out from the darkened
garage, and Chris Owen
(The Shermanator from
American Pie
)
eventually calls out with a chuckle, "Any boogeymen?" A tentacle springs from
inside and grabs on to his, pull him inside. Party leader
Thomas Jane clamps
onto Owen, and a tense tug-of-war ensues.

Darabont is no stranger to King’s work, having previously directed
The Green Mile
and
The Shawshank
Redemption
. However, neither of these films relied on creatures or
monsters as antagonists. With a November 2007 release, we’ll have to wait a
few months to see if Darabont can make The Mist his third Certified Fresh
Stephen King adaptation.
