After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
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.
Heidi, a radio DJ, is sent a box containing a record - a "gift from the Lords". The sounds within the grooves trigger flashbacks of her town's violent past. Is Heidi going mad, or are the Lords back to take revenge on Salem, Massachusetts?
Sheri Moon Zombie,
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.
Michael Myers is still at large and no less dangerous than ever. After a failed reunion to reach his baby sister at their old home, Laurie Strode is immediately taken to a hospital to be treated by the wounds that had been afflicted by her brother a few hours ago. However, Michael isn't too far off and will continue his murdering 'Halloween' rampage until he gets his sister all to himself. Written by
I knew going into this movie that it was not a John Carpenter flick. If I wanted to see that version, I could have Netflix'd it and saved myself a few bucks. I wanted to see Zombie's take on the movie, and I wasn't let down. Like all of Zombie's films, there are no Beaver Cleavers (haha... cleaver) or Mr. Wilsons... They are just the type of people that you see every day and your average white collar worker wants to stay away from. The movie is meant to make you uncomfortable, and it does this fabulously. I honestly don't know what everyone is upset about, it's a movie! I appreciate RZ's effort to take a classic such as this and put his own demented, modern twist into it. Great movie, highly recommended, but if you want to see the Carpenter version, go to Blockbuster!
