Directed by Rob Zombie. With Scout Taylor-Compton, Malcolm McDowell, Tyler Mane, Brad Dourif. After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution and immediately returns to Haddonfield to find his baby sister, Laurie.
A much deeper look into a non-supernatural Michael Myers, the first half of the movie is just setting up why he becomes such a horror to behold. I was expecting a shit show of a movie due to the director, I’ve never been a fan of Rob Zombie’s movie work, but this one didn’t turn out too bad. No ‘new’ famous faces for this movie, the only person I recognize is Danny Trejo, playing one of the only redeemable characters in the into movie. Maybe Malcolm McDowell, but not sure he’s as famous as I like to think he is.
It’s a shame that they didn’t keep with the original storylines though, I feel like there was plenty of room for Rob Zombie to do his thing within the confines of that universe instead of remaking the whole thing.
