Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
The residents of Haddonfield don't know it yet... but death is coming to their small sleepy town. Sixteen years ago, a ten year old boy called Michael Myers brutally kills his step father, his elder sister and her boyfriend. Sixteen years later, he escapes from the mental institution and makes his way back to his hometown intent on a murderous rampage pursued by Dr Sam Loomis who is Michael's doctor and the only one who knows Michael's true evil. Elsewhere a shy teenager by the name of Laurie Strode is babysitting on the night Michael comes home... is it pure coincidence that she and her friends are being stalked by him? Written by
Where's the scares??...A true Abomination to a Classic Film
Halloween 2007 is one of THE most depressing experiences of my entire life. Vulgar, crass, boring, and utterly witless, this entry in the "torture porn" genre is a true bastardization of John Carpenter's enduring classic...what an insult! There is absolutely no sense of mood or atmosphere that made the original so wonderful; no suspense, no surprises, no likable characters (the worst being Laurie, Linda and Annie...these 3 belong in a biker chick film, not a Halloween film), no clever use of foreshadowing or music, just an overlong waste of everyone's precious time. This is yet another horror film of late that confused vulgarity and torture with scares. The first half was OK...if it was in another movie; it did NOT belong in the Halloween mythology. The second half was the most inept and mind-numbingly awful "reimagining" of Carpenter's classic that was ever committed to celluloid. It's hard to imagine anything worse than "Halloween: Resurrection" with a karate kicking Michael Myers; but this one joins it inch by painful inch. HALLOWEEN 2007 is a slap in the face to any true fan of the series, or horror films in general, and Rob Zombie should feel complete and utter shame.
