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.
September 15, 2007
Offers plenty of blood but not much of the rocker-turned-filmmaker's usual gory flair.
September 15, 2007
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.
September 12, 2007
If it wasn't a remake of Halloween, Halloween might have been pretty awesome.
September 10, 2007
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.
September 8, 2007
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.
September 7, 2007
This story has been told at least four times too many already!
September 7, 2007
Chokes the life out of a classic--and then runs it hard into the business end of a butcher knife.
September 5, 2007
...blood-spilling banality...the sensationalism behind Zombie's directorial demeanor is merely a follow-the-dots frightfest with an exaggerated twitching disorder.
September 5, 2007
Part prequel, part remake, this new look at the cinematic serial killer icon Michael Meyers just isn't very scary.
September 5, 2007
Halloween manages to combine the weaknesses of both of Zombie's previous movies, while rarely tapping into the strengths of either.
September 4, 2007
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.
September 4, 2007
Contains dialogue so nasty and stupid, you'd swear (right along with the characters) that the booker for Jerry Springer wrote it (Zombie did).
September 4, 2007
Trick or treat? Rob Zombie's "re-imagining" of John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic Halloween must sadly be consigned to the former category and it's not even a very interesting, suspenseful trick at that.
September 4, 2007
Rob Zombie's Halloween remake isn't scary, which is really all you need to know about it.
September 4, 2007
Revamping the influential 1978 shocker Halloween for a new generation of viewers, director Rob Zombie offers a film with more sex, more violence, no humor and zero scares.
September 4, 2007
The new Halloween has sympathy for the Devil, but not enough.
September 4, 2007
Rob Zombie's lousy remake of John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic Halloween adds to the argument that horror movies are losing their box-office appeal because filmmakers no longer know how -- or have any desire -- to create genuine suspense.
September 4, 2007
The most depressing thing of all is that Michael will likely survive even this dire endeavour.
