alright if RZ said that this movie was not a remake and that it was his own vision of Halloween how come there are tons of scenes in this movie that are from the original?
this is my take on it if RZ was going to make a Halloween movie he should have done a squel to Resesurection. Making Halloween and saying that it was his own take on it is a complete joke. Almost nothing from this movie came from RZ, besdies the 1st like 20 min. Yes many parts of the movie where his own ideas but the parts that make those scenes are all remade. He intoduced almost no new characteres, no change in music, and the same setting as the original. This movie was a highway robbery of the orignal just so the slumpping Rob Zombie could make sure he had a retirment fund. and now I hear of squel rummors and it makes me sick. if they even consider making a squel I 'd love to see how they could clean up the ending. if you gave this movie a 5/5 i'm just shocked the voting should just start at 4/5 just becasue the whole movie's was all the orignal's ideas

Lord there's a lot of hate. And it's from people who are doing too much comparing with the original. I think if Zombie had had his way the movie would have had less connections to the original than it did. But when it was announced the movie was being made everyone was so upset that it was happening that he decided to do his movie (The prequel part) and then throw in references to the original to appease the older fans. That obviously backfired because then it makes people compare the two movies and it obviously doesn't stack up. There was just no way he could have done it to please everyone. I like the WP more and more. The version in theaters was considerably altered for the worse. But enough of the hate people. You have the right to your opinions but good Lord some of you are taking it a little too personally. It's getting almost as bad as some of the Star Wars fanatics who claim George Lucas raped their childhoods. LOL

I think Rob Zombie should probably go into hiding for a while, I'm sure he's going to be under an assassin's bullet for quite some time after this. Commercially he may be fine, but the dedicated fan base is pretty vicious... just look at what they did to John Lennon.

I think RZ's career will be just fine. He is still one of the best newhorror directors around, along with Roth and Aja. I do like his movies in the order they were put out from best to worst, but still enjoy all 3 of them. I still say he should have remade the original and then done a prequel instead of making it all into one movie, but I still enjoyed it regardless.

You let him drown. You never paid any attention. Look what you did to him. Look what you did to him.

Well I watched it thanks to a thing we call the internet, it was clear and easy to watch, anyway here's something like a review.
***MAY HAVE SPOILERS***
The Reasons why I didnt like the Halloween remake was that I didnt like the Idea of showing what Made Michael Myers evil in the first place, Not knowing what makes him tick is to me, made him a good horror character, The original Halloween is frightening because the child Michael myers has no reason to kill his sister, he just does and never speaks another word, Another problem with this movie is the gore. I like horror for its gore, but when you uses it excessively in a movie there are few cases when it makes the movie scary. In this "reimagining" not only are there unnecessary character deaths that destroy any sort of realism, but there is no creativity in the death scenes in my opinion, another reason was the lines, the swearing made me laugh for a short while, but then it got boring and annoying, it made me forget I was watching a horror film, it seems Rob Zombie wanted to win a metal for the most swear words in a film, another thing is that Michael Myers in this film doesnt need stealth, because he can because he's 7 feet tall and can throw people across a room and tear a wall down with his bare hands as he makes a direct line to Haddonfield, I liked Michael Myers because he is like a ghost who can silently move from house to house, Michael Myers was like Jason Voorhees in this film in my view, I was fine with the Nudity but is this a horror film or a porno film.
The good things was Malcolm McDowell, who plays Dr. Loomis and the kid who was young Michael Myers, but the rest of the actors were quite annoying.
