'The Misfits were one of Rob Zombie's influences during his musical career, and the band's track 'Halloween II' is playing on the stereo during the kill scene while the couple are having sex in Michael's childhood home. Also, Tommy's costume is that of the Crimson Ghost character 'The Fiend'. This character has been used as The Misfit's band mascot since the band's inception. See more »

Dear oh Dear. The original was a classic and still makes me squirm a bit now when I watch it. What on earth was the point of this remake? Its just bad and really disappointed me but I guess I might have known it would. Far too much time is spent showing MM as a kid, although for me thats the best part of the film, as its different to the original and sets the scene a bit more, but when he escapes, thats when it goes downhill. The original was truly scary and edge of the seat stuff, all done by camera angles, music and building the tension. True to form, because they couldn't achieve that with a remake, they had to up the gore and it just didn't work, not for me. Verdict - nowhere near as good as the original and don't waste money at the cinema on this - see it on DVD if you must.
