When Rob Zombie released “Halloween” in 2007, rebooting the story of the masked killer Michael Myers, critics were not too thrilled at having to watch it. Fans, however, loved the new film and, as such, were equally eager for a sequel to come out. Now, said sequel is underway and it will certainly not disappoint, since the killer will not be wearing a mask for about 70 percent of the movie.
    Speaking with effects makeup specialist Wayne Toth, the above mentioned horror movie-oriented e-zine has managed to confirm early speculation regarding the mask that made of Michael Myers such a dreaded and terrifying onscreen presence. Apparently, Toth says, the killer will not be wearing his iconic mask for more than a half of the movie, since it no longer fits the story.    The sequel, somewhat redundantly called “H2: Halloween 2,” is set approximately two years after the events in the 2007 film. All this time, Myers has been living in the wild and is now back on a killing spree. The only difference, this time, is that he won’t be wearing his mask but will appear to his victims as the disheveled, bearded man pictured in the first on set photo that leaked on the Internet a short while back. “That’s Michael’s new look for a lot of the film. Fans will be shocked. They seem pretty responsive to it. But it’s like anything else, as long as you’re doing something cool, people get it.” Toth reveals for the above source.
   However, the fact that Myers won’t be wearing a mask for 70 percent of the film is not to say that he won’t be wearing a mask AT ALL. Quite on the contrary, the same insider says, since director Rob Zombie has a surprise for fans here as well: a new mask, something that will be different from any other in previous films, and which will make Myers even more scary.

   “There are a couple different versions of the mask, but none of them are the same mask from the first film. He wanted to take them a step further, even though one of them is basically supposed to be the last mask. We’ve changed it anyway. Then towards the end of the film is the current version of the mask which is a lot different from any of them we’ve seen. People are going to be surprised when they see it. It’s going to throw the Myers fans for a loop.” Toth explains.
   “H2: Halloween 2” will hit US theaters in August 2009. Earlier this year, director Rob Zombie unveiled a prototype of the Michael Myers mask – so fans of the movie can get a vague idea about what’s coming their way. Keep an eye on this space for further developments.
