About this product
- DescriptionThe early 2000s have seen a string of big-budget remakes of classic horror films. In addition to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE HILLS HAVE EYES, John Carpenter's benchmark slasher flick HALLOWEEN has been given a new-millennial overhaul. At the helm of the project sits rocker Rob Zombie, whose previous films, HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, brought a fan's touch and an auteur's vision to the director's chair. While Zombie's HALLOWEEN is faithful to Carpenter's vision, there are some obvious changes, the most pronounced of these being the substantial focus on Michael Myers's childhood. The film posits Michael (played by a creepily vacant Daeg Faerch) as a troubled child made all the worse by a horrible home life--wonderfully illustrated via William Forsythe's performance as Deborah Myers's boyfriend--and constant abuse at school. Zombie paints Michael's pain with palpable grit and sleaze, but he isn't out to put our culture on the couch--he simply wants to show Michael killing his family. With the exception of Michael's therapy sessions while incarcerated, the film, post-massacre, stays loyal to the original.<BR>Zombie's film is clearly the work of a filmmaker who knows and loves the genre. The director's signature is stamped all over HALLOWEEN (most notably in the use of grainy home movie footage and a smokin' classic rock soundtrack), although remnants of Carpenter's brilliant original still remain. When it comes to remakes, it's hard to ask for much more.

Rob Zombie at his finest.
First off, this is NOT a re-make. The film tells the story of Michael Myers from a young boy to a grown man. If you are not familiar with the films of Rob Zombie you are in for a treat. If you are then you will know what to expect. Fantastic gorr and terror with the un-thinkable element of relating to the main bad guy. Mr. Zombie has always found a way to tell a great story not only with dialog and music, but with lighting a camera angles. Massive fan of the original films and this one doesn't disapoint. Check it out!

Halloween (the Should never happened remake)
Just slightly better than Average but not in the leagues of being good & the reason is that it spends too much time building up on Myers back ground & then the rest of the film is "slash this one where is the next one" repetitive & you reduce the movie to being just another slasher movie & far removed from the suspense horror the first one was. The actress stepping in as Laurie is not a patch on Jamie Lee Curtis & just seems another air brain American young actress. Malcolm McDowell is a fine actor but I found him totally wasted on this one. The only nice thing was Danielle Harris in it & that was about it. Not a patch on the second & unfortunately turned into a typical gore slash horror rather than the suspense horror that was John Carpenter's original who is always clearly stating he had nothing to do with it. Buy it by all means but then go buy the 1978 original & you will soon see where this remake is lacking. Read full review
