Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Pamela Susan Shoop's story about how no one in the crew would strip while she filmed a nude scene in Halloween II] That's so not true. I directed that scene in a thong so Pam is absolutely not telling the truth because it doesn't that much for me to take my clothes off. I was ready, willing, and able, and so I challenge her version of that.

Trivia:

Is one of only two directors (The other being Rob Zombie) to direct two of the films in the "Halloween" franchise, Halloween 2 and Halloween Resurrection. See more »
