"After a rash of negative reviews, Rob Zombie's Halloween (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/review/591) (review #1 (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/review/591), #2 (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/9783), #3 (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/9796)) remake still managed to pull in a whopping $26,503,000 this Labor Day weekend; with a budget of only $15 million that's a huge success. What's shocking is that even after such a monster opening, Bob and Harvey Weinstein doubt they'll move forward on a sequel, "I never say never never... but it would have to be something very, very different," Bob told Reuters. Is this the end of Michael Myers, or maybe Robert Englubnd wasn't lying when he said New Line is still working on Freddy vs Jason vs Michael?"

Already a huge box office success, panned by almost every critic, rejected by many fans.... Now there's a horror movie story for you :)

Oh, so it's been reviewed already. I thought it wasn't released for months? :p

I just saw Halloween today... It was good for a horror movie, but ridiculous for a remake of the original masterpiece. I'm actually in a bad mood right now, just because of how UN-faithful it was to the original... 100% of the memorable moments are gone! :mad:

I have only seen Halloween H20: 20 Years Later... ridiculous title. But the movie was okay. Maybe i'll see the remake before i see the original. To enjoy it the most haha.

You've never seen the original?! :yik: Have you been living in a box all your life? (Just kidding.) That's, by far, the best horror movie ever! The only film that even campares to it is Psycho... ;)

I watched the film last night and although it was entertaining, it wasn't a patch on the original nor anywhere as scary!

Why was the film released on 31st August? Did it not make more sense to release it on 31st October? Y'know... All Hallows Eve. :p

I LOVED ROB ZOMBIES HALLOWEEN!!! :jmp:
The original bored me to death had no scare to it.
Zombie's was so much better.

Let me explain to you this.
This is Rob Zombie's Halloween. Not John Carpenters.
Meaning he made it his own changing alot of things. That's why he said it's not that much of a remake.
