So out of all my major gripes about this film, is the inherent shift between times. Is this a 70s, 80s, 90s, or 00 flick? Sure when you're in Haddonfield its the death to any decade with a vast number of 80s and 90s references. In the outside world there's flat TVs and fancy cell phones. I think Zombie wants us to feel ageless so that anybody can relate, but it just seems to corrupt the story a little bit.
Now on to my main thoughts. I think with less shaky cam we would have possibly the best Halloween film since the original part 2. His use of dreams kept the film going down the road of insanity. Frankly I'm glad we didn't have to watch the bubble gum princess Laurie for 2 hours like last time.
In my opinion Zombie brought Myers back to his roots as the shadowy figure like in the original part 1. No more of this obvious giant walking around in the open and looking like a overgrown child. Just shadowy jumps out of nowhere ending in bloodshed.
Speaking of bloodshed, there is no holding back either. Every kill is nice and bloody like a true slasher film should be.
