A 1978 Horror film Dir. by Jon Carpenter in which 6 year old Michael Myers kills his sister and is sent to an insane asylum. 15 years later he escapes and returns home to continue his rampage.
Rob Zombie (yea that guy) decided to do a remake and explore more of Michael Myers childhood.....
So KISS and Jenny from Forrest Gump turn people into serial killers.
*Spoiler Alert* Zemeckis is taking the sequel in a whole new direction
COMPARISONS TO ORIGINAL:
Michael's parents were shown as well dressed and returning from what I assume was a 1960's Halloween party full of cocaine and racist jokes
Mom was working the strip club, dancing to one of the worst stripping songs ever
He escape from mental institution is never shown
Escapes by killing Machete
After spending 15 years non-mobile in an insane asylum Michael is of normal build when he escapes
After spending 15 years non-mobile in an insane asylum he is roughly the size and strength of Jose Canseco (during steroids)
This is what 15 years of sitting around eating government Salisbury Steak does to you
One of the best horror movies of the 20th century
The best horror movie named Halloween released in 2007
A) Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Black Christmas started the slasher genre and then Halloween perfected it. Halloween set the standard for the slashers that followed and kicked of the slasher craze that swept through the 80's and early 90's.
B) Launched Jamie Lee Curtis' career
3) Sequels would be the downfall of Donald Pleseance's (the guy who got paid more than the director) career.
D) Launch a bunch of dumb jokes about Michael Myers and Mike Myers
HAHA!!! There names are similar
