4.5 "A great horror finally reborn!" zapster | 28/10/2012 | See all zapster's reviews (7) I loved the original two and Halloween h20 films, and I even think the sloppy 4th and 5th ones were descent (6th one and resurection were rubbish though), and when I heard about this remake I thought it wasn't going to be any good at all. However, once I watched it, I was quite surprised. This film shows the simple character of Michael Myers has much more depth to him, which delves into Michael's twisted childhood, showing shocking footage, and makes Michael more scary. Unlike the original, which doesn't show us much of Michael until he pays a visit to heroine Laurie Strode in Haddonfield, this film shows us Michaels first kills as a child, his life in prison before his escape to show us just how twisted he is, his doctor's (dr. Lumis) interviews with Michael and the hunt he leads after Michael's escape. All of these events, including an introduction to Michael's family which we never got to see before, all build up to his final rampage in Haddonfield, building up the tension to the dramatic conclusion, which I think was quite fun. Rob Zombie re-invents a classic as a relentless nightmare filled with horror and tension, although at times it's slow-moving. A must-see for any horror fan!
