The Devil's Rejects director Rob Zombie resurrects one of the most notorious slashers in screen history with this re-imagining of the 1978 John Carpenter classic that spawned numerous sequels and countless imitators. As a child, young Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch) committed one of the most unspeakable crimes imaginable. Subsequently locked in an asylum and placed under the care of Dr. Loomis (Malcolm McDowell), the hollow-eyed boy grew into an emotionless man determined to escape back to his hometown of Haddonfield and complete the murderous mission that he began so many years back. These days, the long-abandoned Myers house sits decrepit and overgrown on a peaceful suburban street, its boarded windows and rotting wood a silent testament to the slaughter that has haunted Haddonfield for decades. Now Michael Myers (Tyler Mane) is back, and as the children of this typical Midwestern town fill the sidewalks for a fun-filled night of tricks and treats, Haddonfield is about to find out that there is no escape from pure evil. Brad Dourif, William Forsythe, Udo Kier, Dee Wallace, Sheri Moon Zombie, Danny Trejo, and Adrienne Barbeau co-star.~Jason Buchanan

Disc Two - Michael Lives: The Making of Halloween, a 41/2 hour documentary by Rob Zombie
Rob Zombie's rendition of classic horror Halloween. With a little more grit, aggression and violence to boot! Witness the birth of a psycho! From young Michael Myers childhood growing up with a deadbeat Dad who beats his mother to being bullied at school. Does this push him to psychological breaking point? Or was there always something evil lurking inside? I dig this version if you're a fan of Zombie's style you will too! Puts his own spin on it without insulting the original.
I love horror movies, and I love collecting steelbooks. This is one of my favorite horror movies, and it's got some pretty neat packaging to go with it. Nothing too special however. Still worth getting especially for the price.
how many people are in admitted fan of the 2007 Rob Zombie Halloween. But I am not one of those people. I loved the Remake just because it was so similar yet so different from the original. Of course it follows the same story of Lori towards the end of the film but, in the beginning there's a hold me back Sorry to Michael. Some people thought that it was a shame to do that given that his Persona was always so much just a boogie man. I don't think that at all. I think the movie is great. It's raw and violent yes and includes a little more foul language than I would like. But Rob Zombie is a talented director. The special edition is great because I'm a sucker for a steelbook and I only wish you would have came with a digital copy.
Let me start by saying John carpenters will always be one of the greatest classics of all time!
That said, this movie will knock your socks off! Acting is top notch, the violence is there, this is perfect without the gore. First half of the movie focuses on young Michael Myers and everything going on around him. It focuses on why and how he because a psychopath. It’s very strong entry for the movie others might shy away or it’s too much for them, people have gone through problems like that in real life and don’t want to reminisce about it. This is well executed from begging to end. I’ll just stop right there because I can just keep on talking about it.
Definitely recommend picking this bad boy up! Rob zombie did an amazing job crafting this horror film.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
All the special features from the unrated collectors edition release housed in an awesome steelbook. Discs are not stacked but separated overlapping each other which is a major plus, the only drawback is the theatrical still isn't included but for the price, it doesn't matter. Def worth picking up even if you're double dipping.
