    ITEM#: 11070523

    The early 2000s have seen a string of big-budget remakes of classic horror films. In addition to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE HILLS HAVE EYES, John Carpenter's benchmark slasher flick HALLOWEEN has been given a new-millennial overhaul. At the helm of the project sits rocker Rob Zombie, whose previous films, HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, brought a fan's touch and an auteur's vision to the director's chair. While Zombie's HALLOWEEN is faithful to Carpenter's vision, there are some obvious changes, the most pronounced of these being the substantial focus on Michael Myers's childhood. The film posits Michael (played by a creepily vacant Daeg Faerch) as a troubled child made all the worse by a horrible home life--wonderfully illustrated via William Forsythe's performance as Deborah Myers's boyfriend--and constant abuse at school. Zombie paints Michael's pain with palpable grit and sleaze, but he isn't out to put our culture on the couch--he simply wants to show Michael killing his family. With the exception of Michael's therapy sessions while incarcerated, the film, post-massacre, stays loyal to the original. Zombie's film is clearly the work of a filmmaker who knows and loves the genre. The director's signature is stamped all over HALLOWEEN (most notably in the use of grainy home movie footage and a smokin' classic rock soundtrack), although remnants of Carpenter's brilliant original still remain. When it comes to remakes, it's hard to ask for much more.

    • Great movie -- NOT John Carpenter's movie!

      Rob Zombie has done it again! I loved this movie because it was a totally different Michael than the one that we met before. I still have a fondness for John Carpenter's Michael Myers, but Rob Zombie's Michael is a sympathetic character in this movie. We know why he kills, and we understand how a psychopath is created. Michael is more than just a "shape" in this film, though he longs to be nothing more than a shape. My only disclaimer: I was quite disappointed in the ending of this film, though I understand what was done had to be done, and I did understand the director's reason behind his choice. Still, if you are a Halloween fan, buy this. If you are a Rob Zombie fan, pay attention, there are lots of actors that you have seen a few times before!
