In 2007, Rob Zombie was brought up at the helm to direct the remake of the John Carpenter classic, Halloween. The film was immediately met with backlash upon release and was critically panned. In spite of it, it was moderately successful. Two years later, a sequel was made, and was not only panned, but is proactively maligned by fans of the Halloween franchise. So, in this whole video essay, analysis, defense, review, retrospective, or whatever you want to call it, I defend Rob Zombie’s Halloween duology and explore how they tackle the topic of trauma and turmoil. Michael Myers as a character has always been an ambiguous one, and John Carpenter has gone on record to say that he’s a force of nature, but I believe he’s so much more than that, and that’s why he’s the perfect character to break down.
