8.8/10. A well done different take on the original. It's not a remake more like a different version of the story like fairy tales which have different versions. Rob Zombie shows his talent in understanding the source material. Malcolm MacDowell plays an excellent take on Dr. Loomis, a bit greedy but still caring some. Scout Taylor Compton plays a feisty, funny but still strong Laurie Strode. This is a pretty decent movie, like a grind house movie.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when Michael removes the knife from the drawer, you can see the blade bend.

Dr. Samuel Loomis: I really don't know what else to say, Michael. You haven't said a word for fifteen years! Christ, that's a lifetime. That's nearly twice as long as my first marriage. Wow. It's strange, Michael. In a weird way you've become like... like my best friend. Huh! That just shows you how fucked up my life is. I've done all I possibly can for you, so I'm sorry to tell you that this is going to be my last day. Michael, I have to move on. I'm sorry.

Trivia: In the scene where the two janitors first enter Michael's room when he is an adult, when the shot shows Michael and all of his masks, one of them in the middle left resembles the mask from the original 1978 version.

Question: From what I understand in this movie Michael Myers is some psycho kid that grew up to kill again. How is he surviving direct gunshots? Is he somehow bulletproof? I don't get it.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: In the original "Halloween" movie series, the Michael Myers character is evil personified. He is SO evil, in fact, that he is bulletproof and killproof. He survives all attempts to destroy him much like Jason Voorhees in the ALL the "Friday the 13th" a series.

Yes, but that is because of all that cult of Thorn crap that is revealed in part 6, The Curse of Michael Myers. In Rob Zombie's version, Michael seems to be a "normal," as in human, kid.

But the cult storyline wasn't in their wheelhouse when they made the original. Michael would have had to been a regular child before the murder of his sister. He wasn't regarded as super human in the first two movies. In the original and Rob's remake, Myers survives being shot multiple times.

Answer: He is still a human, but in John Carpenter's version he can't die because of the curse, and in Rob's version though, he's practically a tank.
