Trivia

Rob Zombie originally stated he would never do a sequel to Halloween (2007), until the studio decided to make it. Then he signed on to write and direct, because he didn't want someone to ruin his vision. See more »

Goofs

The Rob Zombie iterations of Halloween clearly remove any supernatural aspect from the character of Michael Myers, this results in a plot inconsistency from the first film. It is never explained how Michael was able to survive a gunshot wound to the face at point-blank range without immediate medical attention. See more »

Deputy Webb: I'll do what I gotta do.

Made HalloweeN Resurrection look like a masterpiece
16 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is has to be the worst Halloween movie of all time. The theatrical edition sucks and I bet the rest might be bad. Please don't buy this; this is a money grab. The slow motion scene sucks like their not scary in this film at all. The original Halloween II with Jamie Lee Curtis was better like they try hard in that film but in this Rob Zombie made the Halloween franchise a joke. I hope that new reboot is better than this garbage. 1.1/10
