Rob Zombie Is Cool With 'Twilight': The MTV Quote Of The Day

"Vampires seem to be the monster that pops up the most frequently, because it's hard to do other ones. It's hard to make a sexy wolf-man. I did see 'Twilight.' It was fine. I had no problems with it. I'm sure I'd enjoy it a lot more if I was a 14-year-old girl!"

-"Halloween II" director and theatrical metalhead Rob Zombie discussing the "Twilight" phenomenon. Zombie, who grew up on horror movies and whose films are about monsters who are very human, has no beef with the current trend of "sexy vampires" and reminded MTV News that it's no different than any other teen sensation. "Everyone's hysterical about everything, aren't they?" he said. Zombie is currently in the middle of his job guest-editing the MTV Movies Blog leading up to Friday's release of "Halloween II," the sequel to his re-imagining of John Carpenter's classic slasher flick. "I just got protective of the series," Zombie told MTV News about his inspiration for going back to the franchise. "I had spent so much time trying to revive the whole thing that it looked like they were just going to go back in and destroy it."
