Editorial Reviews

Rob Zombie (The Devil's Rejects), "modern American horror's most eccentric and surprising filmmaker," (Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times) reinvents the ultimate slasher classic, unleashing Michael Myers for a bloody rollercoaster of a rampage like fans have never seen. Including a retelling of the original story that unfolds at a breakneck pace, as well as a chilling new introduction that finally reveals the secrets behind Myers' disturbing childhood, Halloween breathes new life into one of film history's most terrifying tales. "It will leave you speechless" (Spooky Dan, Bloody-Disgusting).

5.0 out of 5 stars Considering December 11, 2007
Format:DVD
The original Halloween is a classic and will in my book always receive a five star rating. Recently there has been a great deal of remakes that were flops and catered to the teeny bopper crowd such as, The Fog, The Omen, Dark Water, etc. However there has been only two remakes that I thought were diserving of our attenion, one being the remake of The Hills Have Eyes, and Halloween.

What I liked about the remake was it gave us something fresh to work with. In the original Halloween we never really knew why Michael was bad, in this remake, the first thirty minutes or so expore the childhood of Michael Myers. People say that the dialog concerning Michael's family was wrong. Trust me, I have seen broken homes and Mr. Zombie gives us exactly what you would expect from a trashy family.

Besides satisfying my curiosity of Michael's childhood, I found this to be similar in many cases to the original, but at the same time the material was quite fresh with new chills and scares. Zombie took a masterpiece and reminded us why it is called a masterpiece. He accomplished a great job capturing a 70's look and theme, and did a great musical score as well. This is possibly the best horror remake that I've ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unrated Director's Cut Loaded with Tons of Good Extras! December 17, 2007
By Cubist
Format:DVD
Remaking a classic horror film is almost never a good idea. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead (Widescreen Unrated Director's Cut) and The Hitcher (Widescreen Edition) are examples of recent remakes that are inferior shadows of their original selves. And so it came with great disappointment when it was announced that John Carpenter's Halloween (Divimax 25th Anniversary Edition) was going to be remade and Rob Zombie would direct. Known mostly for his music with White Zombie and a successful solo career, he's branched out into making films, including The Devil's Rejects (Unrated Widescreen Edition), a down `n' dirty homage to outlaw cinema of the 1970s. Why would a self-professed horror film buff like Zombie even try to remake a revered classic like Halloween? Hubris? Fanboy wish fulfillment? Or, did he figure that this film was going to be made one way or another and rather than let some hack do a crappy job; he could at least bring his stylistic touches and point-of-view to the table.

Zombie's remake works because he takes the Halloween mythos and expands it in all kinds of fascinating ways. He makes some really intriguing choices like not making Michael supernaturally strong but rather a big guy who is naturally tough and strong.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Perversion of a Classic October 2, 2008
Format:DVD
I was very interested in an updated version of the film, plus the previews looked really dark and creepy. Unfortunately, I went and saw the movie...

For one, ALL of the characters have abnormally filthy mouths. Even Laurie had a filthy mouth, which made it very hard to think of her as a victim I'd want to survive.

Secondly, I don't need a lengthy biography on Michael. I wish they'd just leave at him being a born sociopath. Instead they made it due to child abuse and being picked on in school. What was interesting in the first one was when the parents run up to Michael after he's stabbed Judith to death and the parents look completely normal; their son is just crazy. Also in this remake here, Judith was an awful person and I was completely apathetic to her death. In fact, she pretty much deserved. I prefer innocent victims.

Rob Zombie knows how to create an awesome atmosphere, but he should NOT write his own scripts. He makes his characters so hard to like and they all have mouths like a bunch of uneducated trash.

Apparently a lot of people enjoyed this movie, but I hated every single character and basically sided with Michael despite how much I already hated his character. In my opinion, this movie is an enormous failure and it does not deserve this 3 disc special edition.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ridley Scott's American Gangster about real life bad guy and drug lord, Frank Lucas, in American Gangster receives two Oscar noms. Forrest Whitaker won an Oscar for his portrayal of Ugandan dictator, Idi Amin. Who says you can't do a biopic film of a fictional character? Rob Zombie does just that in this biography, not remake, of horror icon Michael Myers. I would also guess that more Americans have probably heard of the fictional, Michael Myers, than Amin, or Lucas.

Zombie's Halloween goes into detail of Michael as a child, while there is still something of a child left, and the hell on earth that exists in many households. Michael Myers will become the manifestation of evil in society. Halloween was reminiscent of David Cronenberg's The Brood and how the mother's anger physically manifested itself as she spawned deformed children to seek out what angered her. Unlike the mother in The Brood Michael doesn't lash out at society but becomes the evil in society and eventually will no longer be human. True evil cannot be stopped with a gun or a knife and neither can Michael Myers.

My point is Zombie's film can be looked at as poetic and a message for non violence (you think I'm crazy). Michael Myers is a metaphor for the evil in our society, specifically the evil that hides in the suburbs behind closed doors. Myers uses a mask to hide this evil as suburbs could mask this with white picket fence as a happy front. If you can't use violence to stop this evil as we do in our society then you have to go to the roots, the family and family values. Similarly the book

Does the 3 disc edition have the actual theatrical version?
I want the theatrical version too, not this "unrated" verson with the sick, stupid rape scene escape. The theartical verson was much better, killing all the guards. I have it on DVD. Will not buy the bluray until I can find the theatrical verson!

Halloween box set?
The Halloween movies are made by different movie studios, unlike friday the 13th's and nightmare movies which are made by the same company, so there probably won't be a Halloween box set for the US. It sucks because it would be so awesome to have a box set that has all kinds of special features... Read more

Fullscreen and Widescreen Editions
Hey - I just got the theatrical version and the movie disc is two sided - widescreen on side A and fullscreen on side B, and also comes with a bonus 2nd disc.

Whats the difference?
Unrated version contains footage that wasn't shown in the theatrical version. One thing I noticed there was 1 or 2 alternate scenes in the unrated one when I watched it.

rated vs unrated versions
There's also more of Loomis' voice describing Michael's problems in the unrated version, but I hate the unrated verson because of the stupid rape scene escape.
