Apparently, Rob Zombie felt that what was missing from John Carpenter’s masterful original were unlikable characters, a supposed boogeyman with far too much motivation, an unhealthy dose of trailer park hillbilly scuzz, and a total lack of suspense or fear. This made money on name recognition alone, as I can hardly imagine anyone actually liking it. At times repetitively repugnant, but for the most part laughably nonsensical, it’s a complete insult to the 1978 classic (and a slap in the face to its fans). People say the sequel is worse, which is hard to imagine. I’ve had enemas more pleasant. If you haven’t already, skip it.
