Halloween (2007) Review:
Rob Zombie remake of the cult Halloween (1978) might very well be the biggest “love it or hate it” movie out there, and every time something is posted about, it seems to unleash a storm of passionate comments. Whereas the percentage of those who hate this remake seems to win, I am completely on the “Love it” side. I understand that for horror purists, it is hard to see their favorite movie freshly remade, but I really think that Rob zombies have done a bloody good job with it!
For me, this remake has all the little things that the original Halloween was missing, particularly a more detailed plot (with additional scenes describing what happens before and after the initial murder) which helps to build a more in-depth story, and makes Myers appear even eviler. Also, the addition of modern special effects and some gory scenes refresh a bit the Halloween series. I really enjoyed the ultra-violent aspect of the movie, something that is typically Rob Zombie touch (the original barely has any blood in it), but that fits perfectly with Michael Myers brutal aspect.
Overall, I think that Zombie respected the rules of the franchise while adding his own touch to it. I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job than he did for remaking such a classic and hence, I give this movie the same rating as I gave to the original one!
Halloween 2007 Update:
The rumors about a Halloween 9 or Halloween remake have been floating around for years. Thereee has been no credible news of late but this past week a very reliable source, namely Moviehole has reported that an up and comer may have been tapped to bring a remake to the screen. Here is part of the report:
While the Weinstein’s HAVE decided to remake that first “Halloween” – yep, new Laurie Strode – there is still a rough plan to do one more in the current series too. I’m not sure whose script they’d be using for this one, or even whether there is one yet (Matt Venne did something rather grand on this a year or two back – maybe it’s his?), but whatever the case, one of the best horror filmmakers around at the moment has been in contact about directing it.
Dante Tomaselli, whose “Desecration” and “Horror” absolutely rocked (and whose new film, “The Satans Playground”, I hear, is a major treat), has been in contact with those-that-matter to see if he can’t take the reigns on “Halloween 9”, according to “JoBlo.com.
Speaking in the Guts and Glory forum, the new prince of gore says “I’d love to direct Halloween 9. I really would. Halloween is my all time favorite movie. I saw it on my birthday in 1979. I was 9”.
Tomaselli told the film’s producers that “I’d want to bring back the spirit of the original Halloween”, apparently, and that includes using Jamie Lee Curtis just “one more time”.
Should he get the gig, Tomaselli says he’d love to get some of the franchise’s most famous on-camera and off-camera talents to do cameos – including director John Carpenter – and if possible, he’d love to entice actor Bill Paxton, of “Titanic” and “Aliens” fame, to play a role in the film. (As grand as that would be, the studio’s more likely to want ‘fresh virginal faces….that girl from that show with that guy with the pecs and the…’ you get the drift?)
