I’m not opposed to remakes. Really, I’m not.

But, really, tell me, what’s the freaking point of remaking Halloween if you’re going to throw out the entire freaking point of the original film!?

Rob Zombie’s writing and directing the remake. And instead of having Michael Myers embody pure evil, exist as a force of nature, and linger as part of the background… he turns him into just another whiny abused misunderstood child turned serial killer, keeping him front and center throughout the script.

Rob, did you even see Carpenter’s original? Because it sure sounds like you didn’t.
