When Rob Zombie released a remake of the first Halloween movie in 2007 reactions were mixed and many fans of the original couldn't understand why he was making a remake. This remake is different from the original and Zombie's remake of Halloween came as a total surprise to me; I didn't expect to like it at all and thought that he was going to ruin a classic of horror films. It goes deeper into the original Halloween story which I thought was fascinating and well done, it explains things and gives the movie more depth. I liked how the movie started with Michael Myers as a child and the flashback sequences which explained what just happened as Myers killed members of his family. You see an interview with Myers as a child and the setting is very interesting it tries to explain what happened. Then the movie progresses to the point where he is older and escapes from prison and murders people. There is more gore and everything seems more brutal than in the original which was to be expected and makes it more according to today's standards in horror movies. Some things are different and entertaining and are not an exact copy of the original scene by scene which I thought was well done and creative of Rob Zombie. It's like he took the movie and added things to it and made it his own.

Most remakes tend to be pretty bad (even if there are some great ones) and contrary to what many fans thought of Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween I actually enjoyed it and found it was a decent remake. Make no mistake this remake is not as good as the original one and it will never be I just think it was good and that it gave the movie an interesting twist to it. I thought it turned out better than some of the sequels. All I can say is that it's worth watching fans of the original or just curious people.

The unrated director's cut of Rob Zombie's remake of "Halloween" coming out in time for Christmas? Well, the movie only came out on August 31st of this year, which I thought was two months early for this particular film, but apparently that was so they could still get the DVD out in time for it to be an ironic if not perverse stocking stuffer (the movie was still in theaters at the start of December). Marketing strategy aside, it should be made clear that this film is actually more than a remake of John Carpenter's original. The story of how young Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch) became a killer as a little kid is now the entire first act of the film and not simply the prologue, and in Zombie's revisions it is made clear why Michael picked up that big knife and started slicing and dicing. Bullied at school, abused at home by his wicked stepfather (William Forsythe), and saddled with a stripper for a mom (Sheri Moon Zombie), Michael has more than his fair share of issues.

We also get to see some of Michael's sessions with Dr. Samuel Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) and what happened to make Michael's baby sister an orphan. This reflects the other significant difference between this and the original, which is that this time around we know that Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) is Michael's sister. Actually, in the final analysis this movie covers what happens in the original and what happens in the sequel (and if you want to stretch things Michael's fascinating with masks could be a wink and a nod to the atrocious "Halloween III - Season Of The Witch"). Not that Laurie ever makes it to the hospital, but in the end it come to the siblings.

*WARNING: This Review Contains Spoilers*

As every horror movie fan is aware, John Carpenter's "Halloween" is a classic, this is Rob's vision & not a total remake, so it's quite different than the original, hence the "reimagining" part.

The Movie: Overall, it's similar to the original & yet it's very different. Rob Zombie's "Halloween" is significantly darker, gory & has way more profanity, no big surprise there if you've seen Zombie's other films. There is more of a back story with Michael Myers, I understand some fans liked that whereas other fans of the original didn't, many preferred the mystery with Michael Myers. I personally preferred the actors performances in the 1978 version, but again, that's just my opinion. I found that in some scenes the girls were rather irritating to watch when they interacted with one-another & were over-acting at times to ensure that the audience knew they were close. Scout Taylor-Compton did a decent job, I'd never seen her in anything prior to this, I know that when the film was announced she got some flack for portraying Laurie Strode, mainly because she was famously played originally by Scream-Queen, Jamie Lee Curtis & it was a tough role to beat. One of the biggest differences I noticed in this from the original is that it's no secret, to the audience, that Laurie Strode (aka, Boo) is Michael myers' little sister; John Carpenter didn't release that information to fans until "Halloween 2".

The BluRay: Works well, no issues with playing it. If I'm not mistaken, there are quite a few special features, I haven't watched it in a while, but from what I remember they were pretty decent.

Overall: I recommend giving it a watch. You can't say you're a true Halloween fan unless you've seen the entire series!
