Product Description

Product Description

From acclaimed musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) comes an entirely new take on the highly successful and terrifying Halloween legacy that began in 1978. While revealing a new chapter in the established Michael Myers saga, the film will surprise both classic and modern horror fans with a departure from prior films in the Halloween franchise. Audiences should brace themselves for unprecedented fear as Zombie turns back time to uncover the making of a pathologically disturbed, even cursed child named Michael Myers. Written and directed by Rob Zombie, The Weinstein Company opens Halloween on over 2000 screens on August 31st.

The largely unsurprising soundtrack to Rob Zombie's "re-imagining" of John Carpenter's genre-defining Halloween rests on two major building blocks: snippets of dialogue from the new movie and classic 1970s rock track. Nothing surprising among the latter, which includes arena-rock classics such as Blue Oyster Cult’s "Don't Fear the Reaper, " Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed," and Kiss's "God of Thunder." The songs still sound great, of course; whether you need to hear them yet again is another matter. Too bad there aren't more left-field picks like the Misfits' "Halloween II" and Nan Vernon's new sweet/spooky cover of "Mr. Sandman." Good mood-setting interstitials are provided by brief lines delivered by the film's stars, such as Malcolm McDowell (in the Donald Pleasance role) and Scout Taylor-Compton (in the Jamie Lee Curtis role). There are only two cues from Tyler Bates' score. One is an update of the original movie's famously minimalist theme (penned by Carpenter himself); the other, "The Shape Stalks Laurie," is understated but very efficient, at times using dense sonic textures that verge on industrial. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

More than solid 70's era soundtrack Oct. 21 2007
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Say what you will about the movie, but the soundtrack to Rob Zombie's re-imagining of John Carpenter's classic Halloween is a more than solid soundtrack that captures the era of the film's setting. Found here are classic tracks from Rush, Alice Cooper, Kiss, and Blue Oyster Cult among others, with snippets of dialogue from the film peppered in between, similar to the soundtracks to Zombie's previous films, House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. Whether or not hearing these songs is pleasurable to you (if you're not a fan of 70's area rock or were expecting a full on metal soundtrack because this is an R-rated horror movie, you've come to the wrong place) will be the ultimate factor in picking the Halloween soundtrack up, but there are some big notables here. Composer Tyler Bates' underrated take on Carpenter's classic Halloween theme is beyond creepy, as is the surprisingly great cover of "Mr. Sandman" by Nan Vernon. Also on board is "Halloween II" by legendary ghoul-punks The Misfits, which nicely rounds the soundtrack out. All in all, the soundtrack to Rob Zombie's highly criticized re-imagining of Halloween is a more than solid collection of songs from the era and dialogue from the film that help set the tone, and is worth picking up if you're a fan of all of the above.

The soundtracks great, the movie is terrible. Sept. 15 2007
By Bradley J. Hopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just saw this movie and I had high hopes for it, boy was I disappointed. The first half of the movie is slow, long and boring with some very terrible acting. The best acting in the first half comes from Danny Trejo, the rest are down right terrible. The second half improves greatly, but that is still not saying much. The acting is much better but the rest of the movie feels rushed. There is no suspense and the movie is just not scary at all. Rob Zombie took a classic movie and turned it into trash. Zombie made this remake a trashy/sleazy movie, I cannot image John Carpenter liking this thing at all. This is a movie I will not watch again and I love horror movies of all types. This not even a good low B grade movie. The original is 100 times better in all aspects. Rob Zombie needs to stick to music and leave movie making to somebody who knows how to do it. His other movies were just as bad.

The movie aside, I would recommend the sountrack as there are alot of good classic songs.
Halloween treats from Mr Zombie Sept. 19 2007
By Dr Satan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rob Zombie's Halloween OMPS is, as usual, an eclectic treat in terms of the variety of songs on the disc. Like the Devil's Rejects, some of them seem to be slightly surreal choices but (I haven't seen the movie yet because it isn't out in the UK until September 28) I'm sure they've been used in a satisfyingly perverse way (Anyone who has watched House of 1000 Corpses and remembers a certain scene that is accompanied by the song 'I Remember You' will know exactly what I mean). On both House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects soundtracks, however, Rob has always put a really cool soundbite from the movie, and while there are some good ones on here, there's nothing like a 'This Is Insane', or 'Dr Satan' on this one. Still, the songs are good, and it's entertaining enough to have a horror movie soundtrack with the obligatory 'Don't Fear the Reaper' by Blue Oyster Cult.

I bought this disc alongside the forthcoming Rob Zombie Live CD (you might have twigged before that I'm a fan), and have to say that it represents excellent value for money in terms of price (not got the live CD yet, it's not out until late October).

In the meantime, the Halloween soundtrack will whet my appetite as I eagerly await being able to see the movie.
