Rob Zombie's Halloween

I would vote this movie zero stars but that's stupid because then nobody on here would be able to see how much I hate this movie.

Let me start by saying that I am one of the biggest Halloween and Michael Myers fans you will ever meet, I own all the Halloween movies and the Halloween Anniversary DVDs and despite my rage against Rob Zombie's Halloween remakes, I have bought this movie and the uncut version of this movie because I am a true Halloween fan, however this remake is a joke!

Rob Zombie has totally ruined the Halloween movies, first he changed the mask from classic plain white to a burned and torn mask and yeah if he used that mask because Michael Myers was electrocuted in Halloween Resurrection then fair enough, I get that, but this is not a follow up movie to Halloween Resurrection, this is a remake of the original Halloween.
Secondly he made Michael Myers ridiculously tall, I mean come on, at that height he doesn't have to kill him victims with a knife, he might as well just stand on them.
Thirdly there is way too much sex in the movie, i'm not against sex in horror movies and I know it's kinda tradition to have sex in horror movies and then get killed but Rob Zombie's movie is full of it, the original Halloween movies have been a success without the need to use sex to sell the movie. I know it's the 2000s now and movies have changed alot but there's just no need for that much sex and the rape scene in the uncut version was just unnecessary.
Finally and let me say this I could add more points about why I hate this movie but i'm gonna stop at the forth point because this review is already pretty long. They showed Michael's face, Michael Myers is suppost to always keep his mask on, in all the years that Halloween has been running, they have only showed his face in split second scenes, Rob Zombie ruined that and they couldn't of made his face look more ugly, his hair is way to long etc.

However I did like one thing about Rob Zombie's remake and that is that Rob Zombie went into more detail about Michaels childhood and family which probably gave fans more of an idea about why Michael Myers is evil, maybe, I know it did for me so that's the only good thing about this movie.

I'm still rating it half a star, I cannot take this movie serriously, I look at my Halloween collection and I am embarresed to have Rob Zombie's Halloween in with the classics.
