Don’t go the theater thinking youre going to see a dead on version of the original by John Carpenter. Zombie takes a very different take on the story of Michael Myers. The movie follows the Rob Zombie formula; it is full of excess thrills, chills, blood, gore, nudity and shocks left and right. Many actors from The Devil’s Rejects are in this film and it also gives of nice sense of nostalgia. Or to me it does.
Basically, if you love a good hack in slash this is the film for you.
p.s. One of the strong points of the movie was the following of Michael’s childhood. Zombie did a great job on covering the development of Myers from abused boy to homicidal psychopath.
