It's inanely-scripted exploitation, sure, but this 'Halloween' doesn't trivialise; it even returns with sympathy to one victim minutes after the attack that has left her bleeding on the floor.

Ron Zombie's "re-imagining" of John Carpenter's slasher classic has made mincemeat of far better films at the box-office, so it's impossible to ignore.

Instead of trampling over the original, he builds on it and creates an homage that should motivate the new generation of horror fans to seek out John Carpenter's original with the respect and excitement it still deserves.

Offers plenty of blood but not much of the rocker-turned-filmmaker's usual gory flair.

Austin Chronicle

though Zombie continues to have a true, unflinching artist's eye for the sublimely horrific, that eye is wasted here on an unnecessarily moribund history of sociopathy as it relates to Halloween in Haddonfield, Ill.

If you thought John Carpenter was too prissy and squeamish...then this is the movie for you.

The Batman Begins of slasher movies, and one of the more frightening stabathons of recent years.

If it wasn't a remake of Halloween, Halloween might have been pretty awesome.

Zombie is still learning and I'm sure in time will deliver a true horror classic of his own. Until then, enjoy his latest effort.

Rob Zombie is a big ol' cinephile who lacks the chops to execute on the screen everything that's going on emotionally and intellectually inside his head.

Rob Zombie's Halloween might have its merits when viewed as a simple horror film, but as a movie based on a pre-existing property, it's nothing short of a travesty.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Zombie's morally dubious earlier films showcased fun-loving, homicidal anti-heroes; but there's nothing jokey or campy about his approach to Myers, whose long hair and mask obsession suggest he may be a worst-case-scenario incarnation of Zombie himself.

This story has been told at least four times too many already!

Chokes the life out of a classic--and then runs it hard into the business end of a butcher knife.

As if spooked by the long shadow of suburban killer Michael Myers, the director has all but dropped his organic camera style, resulting in exactly the kind of bland, scareless remake the fans were fearing.

...blood-spilling banality...the sensationalism behind Zombie's directorial demeanor is merely a follow-the-dots frightfest with an exaggerated twitching disorder.

Aisle Seat

I won't make the case that Halloween is anything other than a well-crafted slasher film. That's all it wants to be, and that's what it achieves. But I will say that the movie does the horror genre a big favor by reclaiming a legendary character.

Halloween manages to combine the weaknesses of both of Zombie's previous movies, while rarely tapping into the strengths of either.

A lot of modern horror has become more synonymous with horrifying rather than terrifying, the chief difference being the latter also provokes feelings of psychological unease.
