    Yeah, that is true.

    2nd reason: to show what a remarkable movie the original was in comparison?


    Note to Hollywood: Leave "The Exorcist" the #[email protected]% alone!

    i thought this movie was pretty lame to tell you the truth, i wont go into detail but there was no suspense, half of the movie was muted by music covering screaming and little stufff like that to add up to a bad movie IMO, that and the fact that the ending was retarded actually above and beyond retarded



    ****spoilers now**** - - - - -the movie made it very clear that Mr myers does not like sex . . . .he killed 5.5 people who were in that process . . you saw to many breasts(not that there bad but horror nowadays has to have boobs in it to be sucessful and thats kinda sad), i did like the entire plot with mike growing up and showing how he became the monster we have all seen in the other movies but seriously just a bad movie

    ill give it 5/10 just for flare

    we need somebody to be creative and come up with a new series

    8/10. I wasn't expecting a great movie, but I got a good one. See at at night! The crowd I was with jumped a lot, it was a nice old fashioned slasher flick that gave a little more history to the main villian. The first half is really strong, the middle has some plot holes (expected for this type of movie) then it ends really strong.

    Went and saw this friday night. The original Halloween is a classic, so do not go in expecting anything near the original Carpenter classic. Instead of a remake, we get a re-imagining.(WARNING: MILD STORY SPOILERS HERE ON OUT) The first forty minutes or so deal with Michael as a child growing up in a dysfunctional family. We see glimpses of the evil that he will become, but we also see why he does what he does later in life. The kid that plays young Michael is spooky and very convincing. Like the kid we all went to school with that always had the long dirty hair and the anti social attitude (or maybe some of us were that kid). Anyway, all of his teenage angst comes to a head on Halloween night and chaos ensues. The next part of the movie deals with a young Michael at the asylum and then as he reaches adulthood the movie is pretty much a remake of the original. The last 10 minutes is very tense, and the late night crowd I saw it with jumped no fewer then half a dozen times. Is it worth seeing? It depends on what type of horror movies you like. I grew up on slasher films, and I believe that Michael, Freddy, and Jason are my generations Wolfman, Dracula, and Frankenstein. Just as those monsters have gone through reincarnations, so too has Michael Myers in this version of Halloween. We get a history of how a monster is made, but we still don't feel sorry for him. I really liked it, and if the second half didn't feel so rushed I would have LOVED it. As it stands though, it's a worthy addition to the Halloween canon and I would give it a 8/10. Do yourself a favor and see it late at night on a weekend with a big crowd.

    I'm going to wait until it hits video as I prefer to see movies in the theater with my son. I have a billion or so movies to watch at home as is.
    remember, whatever the critics say, it's the opposite.

    i agree with you guys...i really hope zombie can do this story well. i personally didn't think it EVER needed to be remade.

    ...one of the BEST horror flicks to watch...late, late on halloween night. ever.
