2.0 out of 5 stars oh dear, 16 July 2009
This review is from: Halloween: Uncut (Director's Cut Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
for any fans of the original halloween, watching this is going to be a shock to the system. it can be interpreted two ways: if you liked the original because of the haunting atmosphere, the emphasis on 'less is more' in the gore stakes, the fantastic camera angles, the way myers melts from foreground to background to claim another victim, and most importantly the ambiguous motivation for his actions then you're probably not going to like this film. if you are after a decently filmed, another messed up young man goes nuts scenario with excessive violence then you'll like this film. im in the former category. what rob zombie has done is to take myers from being a malevolent force in the background to being the main character, and to do this he has created a back story for the young michael that his dad is dead, his mother is a stripper and his step dad is abusive, his sister is loose, he gets bullied at school etc. for me this basically ruins myters mystique which is why he's so frightening, and it also makes us care less about the characters he's maiming. make up your own mind.

I hate it when you get these Director's come along and have this view of "REBOOTING" or re-imagning classic films Platinum Dunes, being one of the biggest offenders.
Carpenter's film was classy and atmospheric where Zombi's take is just gore and nudity ( ok nudity is ok if it is done right)
Zombi's sequel to this was worse!
