Well to tell you the truth when I first heard about the reamke of john Carpenter's classic I saw sort of shocked to think hang on "there remaking Halloween...whats wrong with it" then I remember the likes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes remakes to believe ok maybe this could be alright, then sortly after becoming a fanatic of Rob Zombie's music and films and to discover that he is going to be the remakes director was when I began to think still is gonna be freakin awesome, the brutality and violence in his previous movies are mind-blowing and with the like of Halloween he is able to re-creat the Michael Myers story and make The Boogey scary once again. The end results proves that Zombie cares about characters and the true diehard Halloween fans all over thew world including us lot, the violence in the movie is to be taken realistic as possible and not over the top with the likes of 'House of 1000 corpses' Zombie is going for a realistic look as much as he can to say what if this was happening to you and it works. The body count in the film is amazing with many victims falling to his butcher knife and the other being tortured and slowly killed which Myers seems to enjoy doing. With an all star cast including Malcolm McCdowell as Dr.Loomis, Sheri Moon Zombie as Michael's mother, Danielle Harris in her third Halloween film this time as Annie Brackett, Kristina Klebe as the lovely Lynda, Scout Taylor-Compton as the spunky Laurie, Daeg Faerch with the best performance in the movie as young, mad Michael then the older version of the beast is played by Tyler Mane. The new look of Michael is breath taking Zombie has once again made Michael The Boogeyman.
The DVD contains an awesome special features disc with over an hour of extras including the most funny outtakes I have ever seen, an indepth look to the masks of Michael Myers, three part look into the production of Halloween- Make-up/costume, set design and finally props, there's a wicked addition clips from most of the cast, a special rehearsal from Scout as Laurie, the trailer and other Dimension movie trailers.
This is now my favourite Halloween movie out of the series and I would say that everyone into horror and Halloween fans worldwide to checkthis masterpiece out cause to me its the greatest film ever made...good job Zombie.
