This movie was better than I thought it would be(from Rob Zombie, I thought it would only be gory and pointless). I think it would have been good as a stand alone movie and not as one of the series. If it wasn't a remake I think I'd have liked it better. The only thing really the same in this movie was the names. It didn't follow the same plot and it really wasn't what I thought it would be. I liked how they went into Micheal's past and showed what he went through, but in the orignal he was a six year old boy who only killed his sister with no reason for doing so. In this one he was a troubled ten year old with lots of reason to kill those who wanted to hurt him. He was a normal psycopath, so when he got shot he should have died. He killed more people in this one. Some points were good, I just thought it should have followed John Carpner's story better. Also, I hated Dr. Loomis in this one, he wasn't a wise doctor, he was selfish and stupid.
