Quote of the Week: Rob Zombie

Q: How do you feel about big budget remakes of Dawn of the Dead and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre?

Zombie: I feel it’s the worst thing any filmmaker can do. I actually got a call from my agent and they asked me if I wanted to be involved with the remake of Chain Saw. I said no f-ing way! Those movies are perfect- you’re only going to make yourself look like an a–hole by remaking them. Go remake something that’s a piece of sh– and make it good. Like with my movie (House of 1000 Corpses) I have elements of Chain Saw in it because I love that movie so much, but I wouldn’t dare want to "remake" it. It’s like a band trying to be another band. You can sound like The Beatles, but you can’t be The Beatles.
