Zombie's Halloween is gruesomely in your face, whether you want it to be or not. (by furiousneon)
I have been a die hard Halloween fan since I first saw the original when I was 7 years old. I'm 19 now, I own all 8 films on DVD, numerous masks and collectors items. When I first heard that Rob Zombie would be doing a "re-imagining" of Carpenters original, I was, well, scared a little. I could deal with a sequel being bad, but going back and tampering with what made Michael Myers such a horror icon is pretty risky. After viewing the 11:00 show last night with a sold out crowd, I can tell you that Zombie sure did tamper with the movie. Hell, he gave it over a half-hour of <more>
insight into why Michael's childhood caused him to become a masked killer. In my opinion, it paid off. What made the original so great was the mystery of Michael Myers, you really had no idea why he did what he did and that made it creepier. What sets the tone of Zombie's version is how in your face the details of this kid are, its to the point where you are forced to feel creeped out, as if someone tied you down to the chair. After the insight and the institution days which in my opinion, brilliantly tie some knots that Halloween fans should be pleased with the movie cuts right to the chase, having an aura of the original and a fresh new feel at the same time. I do not want to give away any deaths although I will say they are GRUESOME and mostly terrifying , big details or the ending, which some idiotic IMDb users do, but I can tell you that the twists in this film, especially towards the end will totally catch you off guard. As for the style of the film, I personally like Zombie's directing style, I think its unique and very much his and I was happy that he wasn't trying to copy Carpenter like so many other past directors have tried to with the Halloween Sequels. The casting was for the most part top notch. Expect to see some heavy hitters in the genre in little bit parts through out the film. To wrap this up, I was very pleased. The film screams at you, its right in your face whether you want it to be or not. If you can let your guard down and stop being so defensive of the original, you should enjoy yourself as much as I did. If you cant, a couple of months from now when your at blockbuster and these two films are side to side, you pick the one you prefer. Ill be picking both.
Rob Zombie reinvents a legend. Better than the original. (by ajaws4ever)
I saw 'Halloween' at a special sneak preview last night and I really enjoyed it...a lot: One of the best, scariest, and brutal horror movies I have ever seen in my entire life. It is longer than the original, so it holds more terror and blood than ever before. And it's a lot more bloody than the original...in fact bloodier than all of them, if you can imagine that.But it's directed by Rob Zombie, so what do you expect? In the original, they left a lot of the blood flow to your imagination, but in this terrifying remake, there is more blood than you would expect...even if it is <more>
directed by Zombie. It is very brutal and bloody and terrorizing.But it's 2007, so what do you expect? A lot of people think that this movie would totally suck...but they're totally wrong. This Halloween is better than the original. Rob Zombie really brought it into modern times and extended it, bringing more and more modern things as the movie goes along. The girls are hotter than the original well, duh , and there are more details about even the little things in the remake than in the original.There is a lot more behind Michael Myers in this movie than in the original. There are a lot more details about how he became a sicko-killer, and about why he is doing all of this. Rob Zombie seemed to know what he was doing.This film will make a lot of money, I can guarantee it. This is a big deal and a big remake. Rob Zombie really invented a legend. It is a lot better than the original...a lot better.If Rob Zombie continues to direct, I'm looking forward to sequels!Official MPAA rating: R: Strong Brutal Bloody Violence and Terror Throughout, Sexual Content, Graphic Nudity, and Language My MPAA rating: R: Strong Brutal Bloody Violence and Terror Throughout, Sexual Content/Nudity, and Language My Canadian rating: R: Brutal Violence, Gory Scenes, Sexual Content, Coarse Language
I just saw this movie yesterday in Queens, New York to a packed audience ... I think everyone had a great time. Perhaps the only problem was the great time everyone had watching Halloween, so many screams and jumps ... the audience became a little distracting.As far at the film goes ... Rob Zombie has seemingly come into his own cinematically speaking. The slightly "Mtv" feel of House of 1000 Corpses is pretty much gone, as well as the downbeat and bleak feel of the Devils Rejects ... instead what we have is an artist using his considerable sense of time and rhythm to make one of <more>
the greatest rewrites in the history of the horror thriller. What one has to remember is that this was first and foremost a summer movie, with all the thrills and excitement of a summer movie. This was not the down-to-earth art-house vision of John Carpenter; this was a great big scary movie to eat popcorn too. And at the same, Rob Zombie seems to have captured something lacking in the first film... which is a sense of the present moment.The true genius of this film is that Rob Zombie has captured our current fear of misguided youth in the context of the Columbine High School massacre and other tragic school shootings, some which go unnoticed in the underclass within the US. Watching this movie, one can't help but feel thrilled and terrified, yet also a compulsion to watch the movie unfold. Zombie does not take the Halloween myth and transcend the franchise ... Zombie simply reminds us that Halloween has always been larger then the sum of its parts including John Carpenter, Rob Zombie reminds us that Halloween has always been as American as Mickey Mouse or Pumpkin pie.So, should you pay the price for the ticket? Well, I'll put it to you this way ... in lieu of "Superbad" or "Chuck & Larry" I had an awesome time watching the movie and so did the audience.
I'm not a big fan of the recent trend of remaking all the classic horror films of the '70s and '80s, but I decided to go see the new "Halloween" anyway, if for no other reason than I'd never seen any of the original films in a theater. That, and I figured they couldn't do much worse than the god-awful "Halloween: Resurrection", the most recent entry before this remake. IMHO the original "Halloween" is one of the greatest horror films ever, and certainly the best "slasher" movie unless you count Hitchcock's "Psycho", <more>
but that's another topic. I really expected to be let down, even though I haven't seen any of Rob Zombie's other movies.For the first five minutes, I thought, "Great, they took this classic American slasher flick and turned it into a white trash festival." But once Michael started talking which he never does in the original film something clicked, and I was hooked. The new film takes the Michael Meyers "mythos" if you will and fleshes it out, giving the audience a frightening insight to the true horror that exists all around us before eviscerating us with the shocks and gore we really paid to see.The movie loses some of its momentum when it jumps to the present day, when too often it reverts back to simply restaging some of the trend-setting scenes from its predecessor - Laurie staring out the window at school and seeing the weirdo in the coveralls and the white mask staring at her, only to vanish seconds later. But hold on, friends - just when you think you know what's coming, the new "Halloween" veers off on its own course, and from then on all bets are off.One of the most significant updates to the "Halloween" legend is the development of Dr. Loomis, the Van Helsing to Meyers' Dracula. The original Loomis played memorably by the late Donald Pleasance, who kept returning for sequel after sequel despite his age and - in later years - ill health was little more than John Carpenter's answer to Captain Ahab. Each film saw him trying to convince another group of skeptical law enforcement officers of the imminent slaughter, never to be believed until the bodies started piling up. The new film's Loomis, however, is a more complex character; he's not the selfless hero the old Loomis was, but he's not quite a villain either, as long as one can forgive him for giving up on Michael to turn his experiences into a cottage industry of "true crime" books and public speaking engagements. When Loomis and Michael are reunited later on, there's more going on then can be seen in a first viewing.Zombie's "Halloween" succeeds on all fronts. It brings modern touches to a format that had long since fallen into cliché without changing it so much that it becomes unrecognizable. It manages to restore the menace and dread of the iconic Michael Meyers character in an era when masked psychopaths usually prompt the audience to laugh rather than gasp. Most importantly, it delivers the goods horror fans demand but includes enough depth and subtext to make it more than just cinematic junk food.In short, I was pleasantly surprised with this new version of "Halloween". Like Zach Snyder's redo of "Dawn of the Dead", the 2007 "Halloween" could never replace its predecessor, but does make for a very admirable companion piece to a horror classic, blending the old and the new into an entertaining and thought-provoking fright film.
Reading the other reviews, it really makes me realize how many posers exist in this sad little world of ours.As I begin with this pixelated comment/review, please give us a moment of silence to mourn the loss of intelligence in this world.If you are indeed a true Halloween or even Friday the 13th fan, you may enjoy this film, it goes beyond regular slashing and screaming and blood and guts everywhere, it goes beyond stupidity.Rob Zombie, obviously has not had the best of luck with the film industry, but this may be the film he needed to kick-start his directing career.Pleasantly mixing <more>
Slasher, Horror, a bit of gore and an in-depth look at Michael, I can appreciate this movie, and be proud to say that I enjoyed it.As funnygy had stated, Halloween 2007 could, and will never replace the original Halloween, but it is indeed a wonderful, enjoyable remake.The thing I enjoyed most, is it actually gives you a small yet slightly disturbing glimpse into the mind of Michael.My thoughts exactly, I highly recommend it IF you are a true Halloween fan.If you dislike this movie, it's your choice..but do not insult something that is simply different, or more in-depth.
Simply Put: Rob Zombie is a Genius. (by dragons2607)
I saw a pre-release of this movie and must say I was blown away.From the out-set of the movie, you start understanding the world according to Micheal Myers. RZ did a spectacular job capturing that level of psychosis needed to commit such atrocities.I've heard many people harp on this title because it is indeed considered a "remake". Note: This is not a remake. This is a different view of the movie as a whole. Instead of seeing it from the victims point of view like most other movies in this genre, you get to see it almost exclusively from the world of Micheal Myers.I would <more>
Whole new movie, with similar scenes (by becky_klem)
If you've seen the original Halloween and are looking to Rob Zombie's movie as a prequel, you're wrong. Rob Zombie's version is really a new Halloween movie altogether. Although the same characters exist and some scenes are reminiscent of the original, its not. I'm a big fan of the original so I went into this movie with no expectations and I was pleasantly surprised. I was a little taken back by th violence and gore because the original had none. I think this Michael Myers is very violent but you still feel for him. Especially with certain scenes with Laurie. If you are <more>
wanting a good scare and a new take on a classic, check this out, you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for a prequel or a remake of the original, skip it because thats not what this movie is.
Great film - Great director - DON'T MISS IT. (by nfaust1)
Most comments want to trash Zombie's movie because it's not the original, or it doesn't do what the original did. Too bad, because Zombie's film is both a respectful homage to the original and, in a way, a summary footnote to it. Zombie's movie works best when it's as far away from the original as possible. And really, it's not boring, pointless, drawn out, and all the other things people are calling it. I would say that most of the negative comments here are really subjective complaints that chastise the film for not being what the writers want it to be, totally <more>
sidestepping what the film actually is and what it does. I'm not saying the film works totally from beginning to end, because it doesn't. But there's more good here than not. Zombie takes this kind of story seriously. His focus on Michael displays a disarming sincerity that gives the film's best moments the kind of weight missing from the most recent, generic horror films. Rob Zombie is an important director and, even with its faults, this movie is well worth our time and our money.
Well, we just got done watching this and I have to say Rob Zombie did it justice. You'll hear a lot of reviews saying it sucks because they don't respect and appreciate Rob Zombie's direction.This is a more new age horror movie, especially in the Zombie genre. The first one had little blood, little language, etc. This one is full of the stuff that makes todays horror films popular.It revolves around who and how Michael became Michael. How he became so violent...I would say the first 40 minutes are of how and why he became who he did. The next 20 are his escape and finding his <more>
sister. The final 40 are of Loomis' chase, Myers killing, and Lori learning.I enjoyed the movie, as did my wife. It's a new take on the Halloween series, and I have to say Rob Zombie did a pretty damn good job. Even the music stayed true.
