Danielle Harris on the ‘Halloween’ Remake

"It's like watching an ‘A&E Biography’ on what it's like to become a serial killer".

Fangoria caught up with actress Danielle Harris, who is currently filming Rob Zombie's Halloween remake. She provides some insight about the film:

"This one is terrifying," Harris continues. "It's like watching an A&E Biography on what it's like to become a serial killer. Which is totally different [from the original]; it's not just some guy running around hacking people up, there is a reason for it. Rob gets into the psychology of when Michael Myers was a child, and why he's as messed up as he is-which is really cool, and is why we watch those shows. Why are we so fascinated by Jeffery Dahmer? Do I really want to know how he ate everybody? No, but I want to know how he became what he became. So it's really cool."

The petite actress, who is almost done filming her scenes as Annie Brackett, is best-known to horror fans as Jamie Lloyd, the young heroine of Halloween 4 and Halloween 5. When questioned about her return to Haddonfield, Harris notes, "It's a lot scarier now than it was when I was a child. Because as an actor, when you're that young, you don't have a filter; you just know that everything is make-believe and it's play and fun time, and it's just easier to go for it. As an adult, when you have to put yourself in that situation, to bring emotion to a scene, you have to really convince yourself that this guy is going to kill you.

Rob Zombie's vision of this film is an entirely new take on the legend and will satisfy fans of the classic Halloween legacy while beginning a new chapter in the Michael Myers saga. This new movie will not only appeal to horror fans, but to a wider movie-going audience as well. It will not be a copycat of any prior films in the Halloween franchise.

Halloween will be released on August 31st, 2007.

        this movie sucked,,i personally think the original is better,,its better to think he came from a normal family and just snapped,.,to say his life was sh*tty as a kid just makes it typical.."like,oh no wonder why" thats stupid,,to think the kid next door could just one day lose it..is much scarier..rob zombie is a dumb ass for this,,,,but yea danielle harris is hot,,muah baby
