  • The result, though undeniably preferable to yet another misbegotten installment of the long-exhausted franchise, certainly doesn't compare to John Carpenter's landmark original film.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Not so much a remake of Carpenter's classic as it is a counterpoint to it. Where Carpenter's film is sparse on running time, character development, and gore Zombie's version is a lengthy examination of Michael Myers psyche that lingers on its extreme violence. In any case the main reason to watch this is for the sequel.

    A interesting but bad take on this iconic horror villain. As the concept seems fresh at first it begins to get worse and worse by edging closer to the end of the film. The not needed Micheal Myers throwback really butchered this film for me along with the over usage of violence and gore over story and suspense which the original did so well. Should've place a little higher maybe a 33% on RT but this is just bland attempt to grab some cash while destroying an iconic antagonist along the way.

    The remake digs much farther into Michael Myers's past/childhood with a large portion of the film explaining how he became the way he did. This gave a larger depth to the character in showing his motivations. Zombie did a good job writing this remake which had the spirit of the first film but still stood well enough on its own.

    We could all live without seeing Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween, although this isn't a bad film. It's just that there was no need to see the story told again. What this film does add, however, is the backstory to Michael Myers. In the original 1978 film Halloween, Dr. Loomis (played by Donald Pleasance) alludes to the evil he saw in Michael Myers when he was a boy. He alludes to the way in which Myers went silent one day and then never talked for years and years. In the remake here you get to see it. I don't think the film really benefits to tell the origin story, although I don't made that they made a remake. Just not my cup of tea. And for the record I don't doubt that Rob Zombie is a huge Halloween fan. It's just beside the point, as far as I am concerned.
