Just recently watched the remake of horror classic Halloween.
Ok, first off when I heard this was to be remade, I literally thought 'oh crap'. Thats usually what I think when I hear a classic is to be remade, anyway.
However, I was pleasantly surprised by this remake. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen it so I'll try to keep this relatively spoiler free.
I like the way director (Rob Zombie) attempts to explain why Myers ends up the way he does. But to be honest and maybe unfairly comparing it to the original, I always preffered not really knowing why he was, the way he was. However I give Zombie credit for not basically copy & pasting the original scene by scene.
I also like Tyler Mane as Myers he does a great job and particularly scary, given his height and overall body mass.
There are also a few difference's from Carpenters original, that may suprise, shock and annoy in equal measures.
It only cost 4 pounds (lousy PS3 with no pound sign.) because it's on-demand on cable.
If you can find it for this price or abouts and you liked the original, give it a chance, you may like it.
