Modernizing the classic slasher staple, Rob Zombie's film is surprisingly adept.

Zombie's 'Halloween' may prove too verbose and literal-minded to satisfy fans of Carpenter's original, but it is a harsh, disquieting experience.

As far as remakes of modern horror classics that did not need to be remade go, rocker-turned-director Rob Zombie's tribute to John Carpenter's 1978 original is not a bad one

Zombie may not be able to match the stalk 'n' menace of Carpenter's steadicam original, but when the Big Z's knife hits the right groove, he cuts to the dark heart of the Myers legend.

Rob Zombie's Halloween reboot isn't bad as remakes go, but the prequel scenes are better than the remake scenes.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

More of a Valentine to the original than a recycled cash-grab.

Adeptly packaged in all facets of production, Halloween is nicely cast with a combination of Zombie regulars, familiar faces and compelling newcomers and satisfyingly constructed with camerawork that heightens the suspense on the page.

The original Halloween was about Jamie Lee Curtis in danger up to her knee socks. And for socks, that was a remarkably high threshold of danger.

The original and the remake need to stand alone and apart, and Zombie's film has merits of its own that should be appreciated.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The life and times of a fictional monster may not be as respectable a subject as a historical monster like, say, Idi Amin or Truman Capote, but Zombie's portrait is every bit as reverent, scrupulous, and deeply felt as any Oscar-grubbing horrorshow.
