Review The best that can be said about Rob Zombie's "Halloween" remake is that he makes it his own, though the considerable alterations only flatter John Carpenter's 1978 slasher-pic template. In contrast to that spare, suggestive genre classic, this bloodier, higher-body-count version leaves nothing to the imagination: Michael Myers is always right there in plain sight, committing mayhem sans suspenseful buildup or mystique...Beyond predictably ramped-up violence, T&A and editorial testosterone, what scenarist-helmer Zombie brings to the revamped tale is a penchant for pointlessly crass "Jerry Springer Uncensored!"-type dialogue (even after the lowlife prologue, most characters talk like drunken sailors), high energy but few real scares, and a disinterest in character and credibility...Despite variations on scenes from Carpenter's film (as well as heavy use of his creepy music theme in Tyler Bates' score), it's all sound and fury with little kick. The literal-mindedness not only demystifies the destructive force, it leaves one questioning logic that didn't matter before...End result is a hectic, professionally assembled pic that just about cancels itself out on every level by the end. Surely this is not the end of Michael Myers -- but let's hope the franchise picks up next where it left off last time, rather than sequelizing this lame new "beginning."

Review When it comes to remakes, I no longer ask "why?" but merely accept the inevitable. The reason always has more to do with greed and a lack of originality than a desire to re-create something out of affection or as an homage. To a certain extent, a remake of Halloween is as welcome as it is expected. Over the years, bad sequels have bled the concept so dry that it has become almost impossible to remember what it was about the first movie that made it such a touchstone of modern horror. The 2007 version of the film, while vastly inferior to John Carpenter's 1978 original, lets us travel back thirty years through the corridors of memory. Watching the new edition, we re-connect to the brilliance of the old one, even if what's on screen now is only a faded echo. This is not a good movie but, considering what Halloween has evolved into over the course of seven sequels, it's perhaps better than it has a right to be...The freshest material in Halloween is the new stuff - the white trash family drama that unfolds before Michael makes his first kill and the scenes in Smith's Grove. Often when Zombie is recreating material directly from Carpenter, it feels obligatory...Added to that is a feeble, overwrought ending and an annoyingly shaky camera that can't stay still whenever Michael swings into action.

Kyle Smith, New York Post One of the most frightening stabathons of recent years...
Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times Re-establishes Mr. Zombie's status as modern American horror's most eccentric and surprising filmmaker...
Nathan Lee, L.A. Weekly Horrific as it is, Halloween isn't so much a horror film as a biopic, and a superb one at that.
Paul Semel, Premiere ...a real, classic-style horror movie...for those who've missed Carpenter's classic, this will scare the candy corn out of you...
