“HAL­LOWEEN” (2007)

The Day - Sound & Country - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
