Consensus: Rob Zombie doesn't bring many new ideas to the table in Halloween, making it another bloody disappointment for fans of the franchise.

Frank Scheck
Hollywood Reporter

The result, though undeniably preferable to yet another misbegotten installment of the long-exhausted franchise, certainly doesn't compare to John Carpenter's landmark original film.

Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York

As if spooked by the long shadow of suburban killer Michael Myers, the director has all but dropped his organic camera style, resulting in exactly the kind of bland, scareless remake the fans were fearing.

It's inanely-scripted exploitation, sure, but this 'Halloween' doesn't trivialise; it even returns with sympathy to one victim minutes after the attack that has left her bleeding on the floor.

The Batman Begins of slasher movies, and one of the more frightening stabathons of recent years.

Contains dialogue so nasty and stupid, you'd swear (right along with the characters) that the booker for Jerry Springer wrote it (Zombie did).

When it comes to Rob Zombie's remake of John Carpenter's Halloween, they don't get any more unnecessary.

A very pathetic remake. ( A lot of remakes are.) Rob zombie decided that he wanted to direct a totally unneccesary movie. The original is the greatest horror… More

Too much blood made this iconic horror flick to be plainly unrealistic. There's no depth and development, but despite all that, it's still a good… More

For those who say it's just too close to the original or it is not updated enough, I have not seen the original Halloween yet, so I am seeing this as a… More
