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.

Wow, there is alot of slander about this film flying all over the internet. This film was cursed from the start. A remake of a classic horror movie like Halloween is a daring and risky move! The man in the drivers seat...Rob Zombie. An interesting choice for a director but none the less the film was doomed right from the start. "Die hard fans" of the original (like myself) were astonished that Malek Akkad would dare and copy the original classic! But wait a second...the sequels have gotten very stale. Is this the appropriate direction? All in all Rob Zombie's version of Halloween is an entirely different film from the original. I think it was pretty smart to change the direction of the film some so one does make the same mistake that Gus Van Sant did with "Psycho". Now the question: Was the remake better than the original? The answer is - No way, not even close! However, this film compliments the original very well. I was surprised with the quality of the film as Rob Zombie is a fairly good director. The film was filled with foul language, nudity and alot of gore! As any good horror movie should be! The casting was well done. Apparently Rob Zombie used the entire cast from his previous movie in Halloween, but I have not seen either of his other two movies, so I don't care in the least. The girl playing Laurie was well cast. Finally Laurie was attractive! Malcolm McDowell as Loomis was brilliant and I loved him in the role. Still nowhere near as good as Donald Pleasence but again, who expected him to be? The back story written into the movie was well done. The little boy who played young Michael Myers managed to creep me out, so that says alot. Michael who is like 10 feet tall in this version is scary again. The ending can go either way for the fans.Read more ›

This movie is really hard for me to rate. The first half of it, following young Micheals (beautifully played by Daeg Faerch) genesis into an unstoppable killing machine is a tour de force and one of the best things ever put on film genre wise. For this the movie would have deserved a 5 star rating. But after this genious excursion into true terror the movie became a poor copy of the (in my opinion not very frightning, or scary, or suspensful) John Carpenter film. So the second part would have deserved a 1 star rating, so I tried to find some middle ground here. I'm a big fan of Rob Zombie`s work (House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects) and in the first half of this film he showed us what he is capable of. Unfortunately he wasted an opportunity in creating something that the original film (again: in my opinion for no reason) is always labeled with: a true masterpiece of horror film making.

The original Halloween was not just a straight slasher movie. It was a slow burn stalker movie that had a really tense atmosphere. And when someone was attacked or killed, it was shocking, and didn't seem to be there just to up the movie's body count like many of the other films that cribbed this style of film. It is a movie where things just seemed to matter more.

This remake doesn't really do that. It's not a slow burn stalker film, it's more in line with traditional slashers, with it's brutal sustained violence, and death seemingly just for the sake of having things in the movie.

This also delves more into the Michael Myers character, who is established more as a character here. In the original, he was more of an unknowable threat, who was scary in the sense that he was pretty unpredictable. Here, his backstory is fleshed out quite a bit from the start. And while it does add a new layer to the character, I don't know if this type of character really needed one. Maybe I have a bit of bias, but I feel like I preferred him as more of a blank slate type character. Really added to the terror I think.

And speaking of bias, i am a big fan of John Carpenter's work, so I would predictably prefer the original over the remake. So I did try to look at this as it's own work, but I couldn't see it as anything other than a predictable paint by numbers slasher film. Frequently throughout the two hour run time I found myself bored.

Though I will say that this is a well executed movie. It's the film's biggest strength. And it's honestly a big reason why i would recommend this film in spite of it's flaws. It feels like it has an actual budget, and the overall film making it very well done.
