Tyler Mane in Penance Lane

If you’re looking to spread a little Christmas cheer this holiday season, one place to look is the various crowdfunding websites.

One project worth looking at is on Indiegogo and comes from Tyler Mane, who starred as Michael Myers in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake and its sequel as well as movies like X-Men, Troy, and The Scorpion King, and his production banner Mane Entertainment. The movie is titled Penance Lane, and also stars Mane.

Unfortunately the crowdfunding campaign is still far from reaching its $100,000 goal (currently at $33,362), and has very little time with under 40 hours left to go.

You can read more about the movie and watch both a trailer and a pitch from Mane below.

Halloween II
Directed by Rob Zombie
Starring Tyler Mane, Brad Dourif, Chris Hardwick, Mark Christopher-Lawrence, Jeffrey Daniel Phillips
Rated R
Released date: August 28, 2009

A few years ago the Halloween franchise was in dire need of a change in direction worse than anything. The logical step from a Hollywood studio standpoint was to take the series’ iconic masked madman Michael Myers back to his roots and start anew. The idea of a remake of the original Halloween wasn’t warmly accepted at first among the franchise’s longtime fans with good reason but the series had long since scraped the bottom of the barrel so clean you could eat off it. The time had come for a new director to take the reins of Michael Myers’ gory exploits and put their own unique spin on the beloved horror series. Musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie was an odd choice for that job and the movie he ultimately delivered in the late summer of 2007 was greeted with the kind of warm enthusiasm Michael Myers usually reserved for his murder victims. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve seen the remake several times and I even own it on DVD. It’s not a perfect film by any stretch of the imagination but I regard it as a fascinating failure possessing greater re-watch value than 95% of the horror remakes being released these days.

Zombie did the best job he could when you consider the circumstances but the slow-burning narrative of his remake’s first two acts was crippled in the third act by the crude insertion of a compact rehash of the original that gave us no time to really get to know the other characters. Even the character of Laurie Strode, one of horror cinema’s greatest heroines, was reduced to a giggly, perky cipher I had little or no sympathy for. Zombie was heavily criticized for attempting to give Michael Myers a detailed origin complete with a broken home, a family who couldn’t give much of a shit about him (with the exception of dear ol’ mum Deborah, a fine performance by the underrated Sheri Moon Zombie, the director’s missus), and a society that has written him off before they even knew him.

Just a few days ago, it was reported that in H2, Rob Zombie‘s upcoming sequel to his Halloween reboot, serial killer Michael Myers would spend about 70 percent of the film without a mask (see Wait, What? Michael Myers To Be Without Mask For Most Of ‘H2′?).

Now, the director has posted on his MySpace blog the first official look at Tyler Mane as Michael Myers wearing the iconic William Shatner mask that the killer is best known for from the original Halloween franchise. (See image at right, click for larger full view.)

Well, after 35 days of snow, freezing rain, fire ants, mud and blood we are done! The cast and crew kick ass beyond ass to bring you the most demented Halloween ever! In less than five months Michael will be back in your face! And speaking of face… here is your first glimpse of one of the many faces Michael 2009.
