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,
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.
On Halloween night of 1963, 6-year old Michael Myers stabbed his sister to death. After sitting in a mental hospital for 15 years, Myers escapes and returns to Haddonsfield to kill. This time he is after his younger sister.
Jamie Lee Curtis,

Rob Zombie considered appearing a few seconds into the film as Dr. Wolfenstein. However, after deciding that he would look "normal" no matter what make-up effects were used, he chose not to. Instead, he took on the brief role as Dr Wolfenstein's assistant (for about 2 seconds) and can be seen in the background and then smashing a pumpkin with a sledgehammer. See more »

Hard to dislike tribute/ripoff of 70s scare flicks, but unpleasant overall.
Definitely a combination tribute and ripoff of both Texas Chainsaw and Hills Have Eyes with a little bit of Warlock Moon and Don't look in the Basement thrown in, and as such it is hard to really either like or dislike this film. It's all been seen before, there's nothing really original here, and it ends up being too much of a mishmash and just too much going on overall. There's one very important element left out here, and that is the one of the protagonist who's gone over the edge and become a mentally battle-scarred nemesis of those seeking to destroy. Zombie changed this somewhat in the sequel with the twisted lawman Wydell seeking vengeance for his brother's murder. In fact, this is one of those rare instances where the sequel, Devil's Rejects, is much better than the first.
