And I'll explain why.
I have no idea what the hell Rob Zombie was thinking when he remade 'Halloween'.
The problem is, I don't even hate this as a remake. I hate it as a film in general.
I watched it when it first came out and never again, it was that terrible.
The only part I don't like as a remake is giving a background story to Myers. He's not meant to have one, he's meant to be some killing machine we don't care about.
'Halloween 2' was a little better than the first film.
Not by much though.
The only real decent thing about the second film was the first half hour in which I thought WOW, Zombie has turned it around and made a decent sequel from a terrible movie.
But then no, it's a dream. It all goes back to the horrid way of the first film.
Easily the best of all Rob Zombie films is 'House Of 1000 Corpses'.
It was the start of the Devils Rejects. And with 'Rejects' you get more an action adventure fast paced thriller that digs in more of the Firefly family.
However with 'House' you get the foundations of what in my mind is the truest of horror. It has the feel of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and was obviously inspired by it. The right amount of suspense, atmosphere and crazy ass characters were introduced and used perfectly.
Plus it introduced us to Doctor Satan and Earl.
Dr Satan was a man who wanted to create Superhumans for some crazy reason. He worked with Earl, the professor, who is also the father of the Firefly family and for some reason is one of my favourite characters in the film.
The one film you may have noticed missing is 'The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto' and to be honest, I'm sure it's better than the 'Halloween' movies but really could be the worst of all as I only watched the first half hour and couldn't get into it. If this was due to it just being bad or if it was due to me not being in the right frame of mind, I cannot remember.
I'll give it a chance one day again but until then.... I will never know where it fits.
