"? has very little to offer beyond what John Carpenter did in the original movie."
It's getting rediculous with Critics reviews on horror movies......Please disregard their comments as they do not know anything when it comes ot a horror movie. As shown above it DID bring something new to to table let me quote it again "showing you his childhood and the events leading up to the part where Michaels mother and the cops are outside taking his clown mask off after killing his sister ect" not jsut showing him killing babysitters and people but going BEHIND his madness and showing the family environment he grew up in......TAKE A HIKE CRITICS!!!!
Halloween is my favourite horror film of all time and Michael Myers is one of the few horror monsters that I find creepy.
I'm already not a huge fan of Rob Zombie as as director but this takes the piss!
The first half of the film is the best part but it makes me angry...Michael Myers should never ever be humanised!! he is evil incarnate, he should never talk or show that he has feelings, it takes away his scariness.
So much goes on in this film but compared to the original it is boring. There is no suspense or creepiness! it's just unlikeable characters getting hacked or bashed to bits, often with their tits out. Laurie is even unlikeable and she's who we are meant to be rooting for and Malcolm McDowell is bloody awful in this and it pains me to say that because I think he's usually great. Oh and just as you think it has finished it just keeps going on....and on.... avoid and go watch the original instead, now that's how you make a horror film.
