Rocker Rob Zombie (House of 1,000 Corpses) tries his hand at remaking (or "reimagining" or whatever) John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic. Zombie crams the cast with great cameos (Malcolm McDowell, Udo Kier, Danny Trejo, Dee Wallace, Brad Dourif, Ken Foree, Sid Haig, Adrienne Barbeau, Sybil Danning, Richard Lynch). The story remains largely unchanged, with disturbed, knife-wielding Michael Meyers returning to his hometown of Haddonfield after spending 17 years in a mental institution. Zombie obviously loves the material and adds a bit more backstory (probably too much) to chew over in this not entirely unwelcome go-around. 109 minutes R.
