I appear to be one of the rare people that loves Rob Zombie's movies. Unpopular opinion, but i prefer this to the original because it shows how we got to present day Michael Myers. This also showcases a FAR more imposing Myers. I feel like it's it's own animal, and doesn't take anything away from the original either.
Mild spoilers ahead: I understand what Rob Zombie was trying to do, and if it wasn't a rendition of a such a classic movie it would've been great. In terms of horror, it uses mostly loud sounds and jump scares as opposed to what made the first one scary. Laurie was a lovable character in the original, someone you wanted to win and had no ties with Michael, which is what made it a horror; however, in this rendition she's more of a teenage brat (To be fair, she's closer to what a teen in modern ages would be like). Giving the back story was cool, but took away what made the original movie scary. There was no rhyme or reason to why Michael went after Laurie in the original, he picked a victim and that was it. She was a good person, which made it challenge the whole idea of "Bad things happen to bad people", and made it so that it can happen to anyone. Three skulls because in terms of a Rob Zombie movie, it was decent. If you've never seen the original it helps.
I really loved it. The story was very nicely fleshed out and the kills were amazing. I also found it a lot scarier than other movies (mainly because of how fast Michael moves and how big he is). It’s not as good as the original but very very good
A very cool rendition. I like how much more it dives into the childhood of Micheal
I enjoy what Rob tried to do. It wasn't a carbon copy of the original but paid it respect in a few different ways. Scout was a great casting, we got to Danielle Harris cross over, and Kristina Klebe as Linda was fitting plus she is super cool in real life! Screw the haters, it is a good movie
