Malcolm McDowell Talks ‘Halloween’ Trilogy

It’s already been revealed that IF Rob Zombie’s Halloween performs well the weekend of August 31, that Dimension plans on unrolling a new series of sequels in the franchise. So why everyone is getting worked up over the recent news is beyond me… but whatever, read on for details from Malcolm McDowell (Dr. Loomis) about his contractual obligation to do three Halloween films.

I’ve signed for three,” Malcolm McDowell tells Rotten Tomatoes. “How about that? They obviously think it’s going to be a big hit.

Having never seen a “Halloween” movie before, McDowell is confident that his portrayal of Loomis will be unique, “I have to tell you that I’ve never seen Halloween 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7. I must be one of the only people on the planet never to have seen any of the films and I’m so glad because I asked the director, Rob Zombie, whether he thought I should see them and he said, ‘No, better no.’

After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, is mistakenly released from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
