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.
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.Read more ›
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!

Halloween released in 1978 was an instant classic and original horror story. John Carpenter and Debra Hill created a classic when Michael Myers kills his sister after watching her... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Jason Hutton

I like this movie so much because it is more shocking than the original. Even the blu ray version is a great one to have, even I would get that movie.Published on Oct. 18 2011 by Kevin Barton
I watched this version of Halloween the other day and it is a shame that Zombie was allowed to remake this classic horror film. Read morePublished on Aug. 1 2011 by SlyFox
I think the movie is wonderful. I never get enough of that movie. Some people think it is rotten, but I do not believe that. Perhaps they should have a Digital Copy Disc for Ipod.Published on Nov. 19 2009 by Kevin Barton
