Product Description

Product Description

On Halloween 1963, Haddenfield, 10-year-old Michael Myers (Daeg Farch), estranged and mentally unstable, is imprisoned in Smith's Gr ove Sanitarium under the care of Dr. Sam Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) for the murders of his mother's (Sheri Moon) boyfriend, his older sister, and her boyfriend. Now, 16 years later, he escapes and now in search of his baby sister Laurie (Scout Taylor-Compton) and D r. Loomis must warn the residents of Haddenfield and get to Laurie before Michael does. Based on a film (HALLOWEEN made in 1978) by John Carpenter.

From Amazon.co.uk

More of a supercharged revamp than a remake, Rob Zombie's take on John Carpenter's Halloween expands the back story of masked killer Michael Myers in an attempt to examine the motivation for his first deadly attack, as well as some reasons for his longevity as a horror icon. Zombie's Myers is a blank-eyed teen (played by Daeg Faerch) whose burgeoning mental problems are left unchecked in a horrific home environment; harassed by schoolmates, a randy sister, and his mother's deadbeat boyfriend (William Forsythe, terrific as usual), Myers' homicidal explosion seems inevitable, and intervention by Dr. Sam Loomis (Malcolm McDowell, who offers a fast-talking, hippiefied version of the Donald Pleasance character) does little to impede his development into a mute, unstoppable killing machine (Tyler Mane) bent on finishing off the only survivor of his family's massacre--his sister, now grown into teenaged Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton). Opening up the psychological motivation of a cipher like Michael Myers is an interesting approach, but Zombie's script possesses neither a depth of character nor dialogue to offer more than a clichéd thumbnail character sketch. Zombie's Halloween isn't terribly suspenseful, either; he has a keen eye for visuals and the details of chaotic environments, but his scares are nothing more than brutal showcases for his special effects team. The end result barely surpasses the original film's numerous sequels, though the Who's Who of cult and character actors in the cast (including Zombie regulars Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Ken Foree, as well as Brad Dourif, Udo Kier, Clint Howard, Richard Lynch, Danny Trejo, Dee Wallace, and Danielle Harris) adds a touch of late-night monster movie charm. However, the film's best performance belongs to the director's spouse, Sheri Moon Zombie, who brings unexpected pathos to the role of Myers' downtrodden mother.-- Paul Gaita

I'm in two minds about this remake.

On the one hand: I'm a huge fan of Rob Zombie's films and music, and can at least appreciate Halloween as a "cover version". It's visually striking, and contains a great mix of Zombie's own style and respectful homages to Carpenter's style. I personally think the acting is much more naturalistic than in most horror movies; the only dialogue that made me cringe were the same parts that made me cringe in the original Carpenter movie... i.e. the scenes with Loomis and the town sheriff.

But, on the other hand: I'm also a massive fan of John Carpenter's early movies, in particular Halloween which happens to be one of the first horror films I ever saw. In comparison to the original, Zombie's version disappoints on several levels.

What made the original scary is the supernatural aspect to "The Shape": it appears and disappears so silently you might suspect teleportation, and its motives remain unclear, right until the end of the movie. This allows enough suspension of disbelief to allow Myers to be completely invulnerable (although later Halloween films took that aspect way too far).

Zombie's movie largely dispenses with the "now you see him, now you don't" motif, and any of those aforementioned creepy scenes. Instead, what we have is just a run-of-the-mill psychopath. This makes some of the faithfully recreated scenes nonsensical, and his resistance to bullets far less plausible. Also, because the film spends so long in the Michael Myers backstory, the second half feels somewhat rushed. For example, there's an inexplicable leap from the daytime graveyard discovery to the first nighttime murders, with no interim scenes to remind us that this is actually happening on Halloween.

First hour of this film was ok, I thought not a bad effort, but WOW!! it went down hill big style, it just dragged and dragged, to be honest with you I lost interest, and could not wait for the end. Nowhere near as good as the original. But then again nothing can beat the original its just pure class.

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.

As i wrote in my review of the original Halloween movie i thought it was boring,not very scary and had some weird acting and only a few decent death scenes and Jamie Lee Curtis saved it from the dreaded one star rating.I have to say despite critics and most viewers saying this remake was poor we get a much better story with more scenes to show why killer Michael Myers does what he does and some genuine creepy scares,not remotely boring and some superb acting,as a remake its near perfect and unlike some other remakes like Psycho it has a lot of new moments as well as some familiar scenes.

Young Michael Myers has a troubled childhood which brings out psycho type feelings in him.His home life with his mum Deborah(Sheri Moon Zombie who is excellent)her abusive boyfriend Ronnie(William Forsythe),older sister Judith(Hanna R Hall)and baby Angel is pretty awful with Ronnie ruining any relationship Michael can have with anyone especially his mum who generally does care about him.On Halloween morning Michael brutally murders a bully from school before later at night he murders Ronnie by cutting his throat before moving on to Judith's boyfriend Steven and then his sister Judith by chasing her until he butchers her,soon after he is banged up in a sanitarium and is under the guidance of Dr Samuel Loomis(Brit legend Malcolm McDowell).After a few visits from his caring mother Michael kills a nurse which leads to Deborah committing suicide.

Sixteen years ago, a ten year old boy called Michael Myers brutally kills his step father, his elder sister and her boyfriend.

Present day, and he escapes from the mental institution and makes his way back to his hometown intent on a murderous rampage pursued by Dr Sam Loomis, who is Michael's doctor and the only one who knows Michael's true evil.

Elsewhere a shy teenager by the name of Laurie Strode is babysitting on the night Michael comes home...

Is it pure coincidence that she and her friends are being stalked by him?....

Out of all the remakes that have been made of prolific horror films, this has to be the best of them. Because Bay hasn't touched it, it hasn't been watered down to appease the teen market, and most of all Zombie has made the film his own.

The story is the same, and there are key scenes from the original, and of course the soundtrack, but has Zombie written all over it, and it's as dark as a horror movie as you could wish for.

It's strength and it's weakness though is the opening act. It's good to see Myers as a normal(ish) young boy, and to see a human side, but the original told no one that Myers was Strodes brother, he was just a shape, who killed for no reason.

The cast are great, and Harris and Mcdowell bring some gravitas to the proceedings.

It has some very disturbing moments throughout, and although it's not a patch on the original, it's a masterpiece compared the the turgid sequels.
