I have to say, I didn't hate it. It's got a distinct style that makes itself clear within about the first 10 seconds and carries through the whole film. I'm always a fan of a bold flavour. I also appreciate that while Carpenter's version of Myers is this raw, faceless, primal force, Zombie invites you to occupy his mind a little bit. I think my big criticism with this version of the film, however, is that this invitation ultimately doesn't go anywhere. The character is still an animal-like evil force - the attempt at creating a backstory doesn't imbue him with enough specific character traits to inspire empathy after the first few minutes of the movie, and as origins go is isn't satisfying. It's a lot of buildup, including the addition of several characters, with no payoff in terms of narrative. This being said, the early scenes in the movie are a fun romp and I enjoyed watching them, the second half pays some tribute to the original without copying any scenes exactly.

This movie was good by rob zombie standards. As an actual horror movie it’s about 1 star. The acting was good and michael was “shit your pants terrifying” but I didn’t like the gratuitous nudity, and “serial killer comes from bad home cliche” final rating: 3 skulls.

Really enjoyed this remake of a horror classic, but it doesn't beat the original.
