Movie Summary

Released:
2007
Rating:
Not Available
Halloween is a 2007 horror film directed by Rob Zombie. The story acts as a prequel to the original 1978 film, focusing on a 10-year-old boy named Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch). Young Michael does not show any signs of childhood innocence, instead going on a violent killing spree that leaves most of his family dead. Only his mother, Deborah (Sheri Moon Zombie), remains alive, although she has lost her daughter (Hanna R. Hall) in the carnage. Eventually, Michael winds up at a sanitarium, being treated by Dr. Samuel Loomis (Malcolm McDowell). Both Dr. Loomis and Deborah try to unravel the dark secrets of Michael's mind, attempting to find out the reason behind the murders. Michael is uncooperative, instead focusing on his strange new hobby of creating masks. His mother eventually gives up in despair when she realizes her son will never be normal, and Michael grows into a strange and dangerous young man (Tyler Mane). When he escapes from the sanitarium and begins to leave behind a trail of bloodshed, Dr. Loomis has to return to the scene of the crimes and attempt once more to find the humanity in Michael Meyers.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times

    The new Halloween has sympathy for the Devil, but not enough.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    It's a more polished, high-fidelity version of a story that's played out on screen many times since 1978, but once Zombie runs out of subtext, he's right back to the same old slash...

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    Leaves nothing to the imagination: Michael Myers is always right there in plain sight, committing mayhem sans suspenseful buildup or mystique.
