So has anyone seen it yet?
It has a weird ad campaign in New York. The print ads all mention it was directed by Rob Zombie. The tv ads dont mention him at all. Is it the same in other parts of the country?
thanks,
Morg

It's def. an Rob Zombie movie...I saw it and it was awesome! He focus's more on Michael as a young kid rather then random killings all over the place and such. There was much blood and it was a bit better then the original. The actor who playing Michael is much beefier and bigger then the original Halloween Michael actor, so it made him seem a bit more scarier. ^_^ I give it an A+.

I just got home from seeing it. I was blown away. It was a Rob Zombie movie, and he did one hell of a job with it. The movie shows how Michael got so twisted and became the psychopath that we all know and love. I recomend it completely.

I'm a bit torn about watching this movie. If I saw it, it would be because I enjoyed Robs last two movies and appreciate his directing ability. If I don't see it, it's because I don't fully like the idea of re-inventing somebody like Myers. Or any villain for that matter.

Agreed. Totally.

Is it true that Courtney Gains is in the movie??

Very interesting movie... I would recommend it to anyone who can go to a remake not expecting anything... You will not be disappointed...

This movie honors horror and the original in a way I did not expect...

Just seen it. Very good, although a bit too intense for me. Just wanted a little break from all the action, but that's just me.

I went to go see it with my boyfriend...he thought it wasn't as good as the older ones.He complained that they didn't even dress to the right era.I personally thought it was o.k. The only thing that I thought was interesting was the begining when they showed why he started killing and the part where he tried to show a picture of his sister holding him or something like that and she didn't know who he was.The only thing that scared me was when he popped out of now where all of a sudden....That's it.

This is a much different take on this series. This is what I believe it needed. I loved the Fact they got Malcom Macdowl as Dr. Lumus. Tyler Mane makes for a much more frightening Micheal Myers. All more meat to the story

I thought it was awful. It wasn't even remotely scary--just full of gore, blood, and extreme violence--and I only recall one actually suspenseful moment towards the end. My first and probably last Rob Zombie flick if this is an accurate representation of his movies.

I'm not one to drone on about movies like some wannabe film critic, but the storyline seemed very flat, one-dimensional and typical: little kid experiences crappy home life, tortures animals, goes nutty, kills lots of people. I'm left asking: "...and?"

I'm not dissing it for its superficial entertainment value that violence and gore provide, but is there really anything of higher value here? Anything discussion worthy or not typical that I might have missed when cringing behind my knees?

I haven’t seen the movie yet, although I probably will rent it when it comes out on video out of mere curiosity. And yes, it has been advertised here in Canada as a Rob Zombie film. I like Rob Zombie as a person, but not as a director. I’m sure many of you will disagree with me on that, so I’ll at least tell you why.

I think the initial appeal of his work in film applies to horror movie lovers simply because of the extreme content. It’s also an interesting transition to watch a rock star who has always put a darker twist on things make the transition to being a director. However, the two films he made previously when viewed from a broader perspective were a great disappointment to me.

Did anyone notice the immense similarities between “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”? To me it seemed like a rip off of the latter, which I really saw as a lack of originality. That, and for a period of time they were actually talking about banning the movie in Canada because of the extreme graphic content. Compared to other movies, I just don’t see where they were coming from on that. When I heard to movie title “House of 1000 Corpses” what automatically came to mind was the scene in “Jeepers Creepers” where the guy fell down the metal pipe by the church, turned on his flashlight and saw that the walls were plastered from top to bottom with a collage of more corpses than he could count. For a movie with such a title, it did seem to be lacking in the corpse count.

I also likened “The Devil’s Rejects” to a rip-off of “Natural Born Killers”. I’m sure if you really think about it, you’ll see the similarities. After watching both movies, I got the impression that Rob Zombie was more interested in reinventing other people’s work than he was with coming up with anything original of his own. So the first time I saw the commercial for “Halloween” I literally fell out of my chair laughing. Can you possibly come up with a better unoriginal rip-off than that? Three in a row, nonetheless!

holy shit at last I've found people that actually like the movie. I'm a big Zombie fan and had heard back so much negative feed back about the movie I was beginning to think I was looking at it with rose tinted glasses.Didn't think it was as good as rejects but he did a fantastic job with it.If it was left in the hands of a lesser director it would probably have been a floating turd like the omen re make.In my opinion Zombie is after becoming a more accomplished story teller and has surpassed the likes of Tarantino who's movies seem to be getting progressively worse. Even the Halloween re make was more authentic than Deathproof.
Zombie has a flair for capturing an era on film.Some scenes in the devils rejects just blew me away cause they reminded me of the good old 70's movies like the wild bunch and even Texas chainsaw massacre> I felt none of that with grind-house.

It opens in Sydney this week. Who says it takes forever to get down under!!!!! I'm really looking forward to seeing what Rob Zombie has done with it.

I loved the original, scared the living shit out of me.
