This movie is great it's like the original except a hell of a lot more content, story and strong visual (blood, boobs and blackness).
Before I had gone to see Halloween I had heard on 93x while listening to it at work that Rob Zombie is asking all of his fans that are going to see either the day of or the midnight showing to dress as Michael Myers. I thought if Zombie wants this I have to do it even though I have heard nothing to confirm this other than my Californian friend Chris; I hope he did it too. I'm just trying to imagine how cool it would with a theatre full of Michael Myers; I just thought of an eerie nightmare that would be played on the Trighlight Zone see all of your worst night surrounding you with popcorn and their favorite drink. Well, I did it! Too bad I didn't have much time to shop because my mask didn't look so much like Myers but one would get the idea when seeing it. The problem was the hair was latex and didn't look real and yes I tried to find a William Shatner mask to customize into Myers. I felt it was worth doing it. I tried convincing the other two members of the Halloween Preview Team to dress like him but that didn't work so later I thought I'd convince them to at least put some blood on their face. I thought I got them to go a step beyond when we had a Halloween marathon of 1 & 8 when they said they'd wear 70's clothing like the trio in the movie but they were just on a Halloween high and told me later on they were just kidding. Another disappointment that came two was that it was only playing at two theatres within the Twin Cities: White Bear Township and Rosedale 14 (good for them). I can't believe that the Ultra Screen will have a midnight showing for a movie like Superbad which has been barely advertised for 2 weeks and it gets a midnight showing but screw the movie that's been 30 years into the making and has been advertised since April. Like my friend Joey said it, "retarded humor is the IN thing right now". I understand what he means; it's been mainstream ever since Will Ferrell and other SNL friends have made it to theatres. I am not saying it's not entertaining but room should be made for those who deserve it and not given anyone because they are suppose to. Anyway I was the only one in the theatre that was dressed as Michael which made me feel stupid when we first drove but then I didn't give a shit a second later knowing that because of me dressing like this is a showing I will remember because I made it something different plus I scared several people before and after without even trying; I even got a hot chick to cry while others gave me props.
Overall I think you have to see this if you can handle violent scenes and some blood; I'm under-exaggerating of course. He puts his work in and you can see it when you watch the movie. Try to be careful of those reviews that are still stuck in the 70's and tell them to catch up to the Zombie era. Don't worry there won't be sequels too!!!
P.S. I didn't give spoilers!!! There's a first for everything.
