First let me say that I think that the ORIGINAL! Halloween was pure genius on John Carpenter's part I have watched it so many times that i have lost count, so when I found out that rob zombie was going to do a remake, i got a little scared, I mean how can u perfect, perfection, but I gave it a chance and paid money to see it. Do not get I am sure he meant well. Until i saw the boy that played young michael, he was a total bad acting geek, I mean did rob owe this kids family some money or something? He totally screwed the entire movie, Rob should have taken a little more time to find a colder more intimidating kid, because this one could not spook a deer! That whole seen were young michael goes to his locker and then ran out of the school, I did not know whether I was watching a horror movie or a segment of the special olympics.
I mean any true fan of the original knows that michael, even as a child was calm and cold that is what made him such a bad a** in the original, you did not see young michael in the original ever look like he was chasing a ice cream truck in the middle of summer. I am sorry but Rob dropped the ball on this one, some things u just don't mess with, how would a mob movie genre fan feel if some idiot director decides he is going to re-make "Goodfellas", but instead of using Pesci, Deniro and liota he goes with the moe, larry and curly type personality u would S***. And to make it worse he does the sequel, are u serious? And someone please tell me why his wife has got to be in every movie he does she is a b movie actress at best, she must be really great in bed. leave movie making to real movie makers Rob and go sale realestate or something.

Thank you, really bothers me that there is no more originality in this genre anymore.

It really bothers me that there is no originality to the arguments against Rob Zombie's (or anyone else's) remake/revision/whatever.

Either you like it or you don't. This is a dead-horse topic. If new guys just want something to come in here & complain about, I've got four words for you:

Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows"

There y'go - get after it :mrgreen:

(Why not? Burton's other "epic" vampire movie is advertised right next to what I'm typing...maybe he was focused more on Abe Lincoln staking bloodsuckers then on making either a great homage or spoof of a classic goth soap-opera.)
