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.

Unfortunately, what makes Michael tick doesn't turn out to be all that interesting.

Rob Zombie's Halloween remake isn't scary, which is really all you need to know about it.

September 4, 2007

Halloween is, objectively speaking and without thinking about the original, a crummy film. As a remake of the Carpenter movie it's a heinous abortion.

Although it's not saying much, this is director Rob Zombie's most impressive outing behind the camera.

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

Finally we know why homicidal maniac Michael Myers wears a mask. Straight-up embarrassment.

When it comes to Rob Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's Halloween, they don't get any more unnecessary.

Zombie's fury is dulled by his veneration of the horror classic

Pick the lamest Halloween sequel out there and you've just found a better movie than this one. At this point I'd rather see three new Uwe Boll flicks than anything Rob Zombie has to offer.

Fans will be chomping at the bit waiting for the slaughter to begin ... it's hard not to walk away feeling disappointed about the return of Michael Myers.

While generally a well-made horror remake... fans will be chomping at the bit waiting for the slaughter to begin, and once it does, it has very little to offer beyond what John Carpenter did in the original movie.

Halloween is about graphic brutality and absolutely nothing more.

Taking 50 minutes to get to the present where the original took five, here we are offered something resembling justification for why poor little Mikey beat and stabbed his way to infamy.

Rob Zombie's gut understanding of what makes '70s horror so great is unfortunately glimpsed in only short, sporadic bursts in Halloween.

Dark Horizons

At the forty minute mark though, what was a relatively tedious serial killer origin film changes into a rushed remake of the first film that ultimately feels like simply another grotesque sequel in the franchise's long line of bad entries.

Zombie is a one-trick pony. I don't like the trick or the pony.

The Scorecard Review

When the score (from the original) is the best part of this retelling, perhaps it's best we don't celebrate Halloween this year.

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