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.
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,
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
In Ruggsville, Texas, the police under the command of Sheriff John Quincy Wydell attack the house of the sadistic serial killers Firefly family (a.k.a. The Devil's Reject) and they arrest mother Firefly, but Otis B. Driftwood and Baby Firefly escape from the siege. Tiny is wandering nearby the house and also escapes. Otis and Baby call their patriarch, the mad clown Captain Spaulding and they schedule to reunite at an isolated motel in the desert. When Otis and Baby arrive, they kidnap two families of singers, using sadism and violence against the harmless persons. Meanwhile, Sheriff Wydell promises to capture and kill the runaways, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, the Deputy George Wydell. Written by

The DVD release is altered to include "In Memory of Matthew McGrory" at the end of the film, just before the credits. The theatrical release did not include this, as Matthew McGrory was still alive. See more »

It comes as a no surprise that a man who has no understanding of the most powerful and diverse musical genre, heavy metal, has no understanding of the most powerful and diverse film genre, horror. But still, this is mindboggling, how there is no element of suspense whatsoever. Zombie is going for some kind of Texas Chainsaw Massacre vibe here, but this is what mcconaghey (or something similar) and zellweger did to that franchise, there is no understanding of the original and no feeling to be found. Where Hooper terrifyingly and beautifully portraited victim's agony, here you feel nothing but annoyance. To call this piece of crap frightening and disturbing is also far removed from the real world. Maybe, if your favorite horror movies include the recent remakes of the classics and your favorite horror film star is sarah michellle gellar, and of course that one dude who said that The Descent is only good, if you like chicks screaming in a dark cave, that could be the case. But if you have seen French horror of this century, brilliant Sprski Film, the real horror of Fulci, Argento, Romero and the ilk, you know what I'm talking about. This waste of film and everyone's time, thinks it's hard, tough and uncompromising, where in reality it's a total fake. Supposedly heavy, supposedly gritty, but if you can't inject any feeling in to your characters (in this film they are all so inexplicable useless, hollow and downright irritating),story and scenes, you're way, way off. Even if your characters are supposed to be vile, they need to be at least scary. And this very important thing is totally unknown to this movie. To everyone who can appreciate genuine horror cinema, avoid this. I just wanted it to end.
