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.

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 have sex with her boyfriend. He was wearing a clown costume and went inside the house and killed his sister and he was sent to Smith Grove Sanitarium. Donald Pleasance plays the doctor who is responsible for Michael Myers and warns the hospital to keep him instutionalized. 15 years later, he escapes and makes his way to Haddonfield and a night of murder and mayhem follows. Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode is brilliant.

Now in 2007, Rob Zombie re-imagines the Halloween story and what follows is two hours of excessive graphic horror violence, strong language throughout the movie and distrubing content with gory scenes. The making of Halloween 2007 is over 4 hours which is excessive and too much detail in the movie. The movie is too long for a horror movie and this retelling of the Halloween story doesn't add anything new to the original. The original was a mystery and suspenseful movie. Halloween 1978 had Nick Castle as the Shape and Halloween II had Dick Warlock as the Shape. I know there are people who like Rob Zombie's version of Halloween- but I am not one of them. Hardly. Why settle for an imitation when you can watch the original film. The gratuitous violence in this movie is excessive. We didn't need a remake of Halloween. This movie is a waste of two hours. Donald Pleasance and Jamie Lee Curtis was Halloween and nothing can measure up to the original film. Rob Zombie directed the Devil's Rejects and House of 1000 Corpses and he notorious for over-the-top extreme violence. This is the most graphic Halloween film ever made. If you want blood and gore, then this movie is for you. If you want suspense, watch the original which was a masterpiece. A timeless horror classic. Rob Zombie's movie is
