Rob Zombie attacks a horror classic

Halloween

Plot
Haddonfield, Illinois. Ten-year-old Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch) murders several people, including his sister, and is institutionalised. As an adult, the mask-wearing Michael (Tyler Mane)escapes and returns home, pursued by his psychiatrist Sam Loomis (Malcolm McDowell), and goes after his other sister, Laurie (Scout Taylor-Compton).


Verdict
It could have been worse – but, seriously, guys, stop doing this. “Was he the boogey man?” asks the film. As a matter of fact, he was a stringy-haired professional wrestler with a pole-dancer for a mother and a kink for masks.
