The two-disc Unrated Director's Cut offers a full disc's worth of extras that should please Zombie fans; chief among the supplemental features is his commentary, which details the film's shooting history and the numerous edits required to deliver the theatrical version. A making-of featurette offers further details of Zombie's vision for the film, and there are featurettes on his cast choices and the many masks that Myers makes while incarcerated. Seventeen deleted scenes (two of which feature Adrienne Barbeau and Tom Towles) and an alternate ending (all with Zombie's commentary) are also provided, as well as footage from the casting sessions. A blooper reel, which is highlighted by unchecked mischief by McDowell and Dourif, offers the set's sole moment of levity. -- Paul Gaita

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.
I am in no way a horror fan. Usually all the movies are the same, and there hasn't been an actual good horror movie for several decades. But Zombie's movies are different than the normal "gross before scary" horror being released in droves every weekend. That's why it was such a dissapointment, to me at least, that, among other admirable qualities, his 'Halloween' remake has very few chills. It's almost a normal slice-'n-dice horror movie, complete with naked women running around getting fileted for most of the third act.Read more ›
Zombie's remake works because he takes the Halloween mythos and expands it in all kinds of fascinating ways.Read more ›

While it gets into psychology more, it is more upsetting than frightening. There was something to the original about not know why he was killing. Wouldn't watch it again.Published 4 days ago by Art Vandaley

|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

|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!

|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.
