1.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Movie Remake Gone Wrong!, 26 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Halloween: Uncut (Director's Cut Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I have always been a huge Halloween fan. Halloween was one of the first horror movies I watched growing up. The original movie is a classic in every way. Everything about the original (acting, music, plot) is spot on.

Now I was feeling mixed emotions when I heard Halloween was going to be remade. Most likely because it's rare to find a decent remake to a movie. I kind of gave up hope on remakes especially after watching The Fog remake. That movie sucked on all levels! But I wanted to give this remake a chance especially as I am huge Halloween fan.

After watching the first half of the movie, I will give Rob Zombie credit where it's due. He came from a different angle. He focused the first half of the movie on Michael's childhood. There was way to much talking. So much talking - I was falling asleep!

Then it started to pick up after Michael is about to escape the hospital. What I was incredibly sickened by was having a rape scene in the movie. What the hell was Rob thinking putting a scene like that in this movie? Thank heavens, the forward skip button on the remote control exists.

When we meet the characters, I was quite shocked by the amount of sexual references each character makes. I mean each character was incredibly boring. The actress playing Laurie Strode was constantly screaming. Giving me a complete headache. Even the actor played Dr Loomis was boring. The violence in this movie was incredibly horrible. Way to strong!

I know with your average horror movie, you'll get the nudity, sex scenes and gore. But this movie was almost filled with too much of it. The only good thing about this movie was the music but that couldn't save it.

So if you enjoy a horror movie with a lot of sex and violence. Then this is the movie for you!

But if you enjoy your average horror movie, stick with the original.

You know the saying - You can't beat the original!
