Halloween (2007)

Halloween (2007)

Ken Wynne reviews Halloween (2007), directed by Rob Zombie.

If you put all comparisons to John Carpenter’s 1978 original slasher aside, Rob Zombie has done an admirable job of trying to demystify the boogeyman. Micheal Myers is not the embodiment of pure evil, but rather a troubled and misguided soul whose self-induced isolation leads him on a killing-spree on Halloween night.

“These eyes will deceive you, they will destroy you. They will take from you, your innocence, your pride, and eventually your soul. These eyes do not see what you and I see. Behind these eyes one finds only blackness, the absence of light, these are of a psychopath.”

Our Top George A. Romero Inspired Zombie Movies

Romero has inspired a few great films, some which have approached the subject matter in a more self-reflexive, humorous way, some that have attempted to make social commentary through zombie lore, and some who have managed to straddle that line between the two.

Here is a look at our newest contributor Brandon Engel‘s top five zombie films that are, in one way or another derivative of George A. Romero’s work. Bon apetit!

Moon Zero Two (1969)

Moon Zero Two (1969)

A.J. Hakari reviews Moon Zero Two (1969), directed by Roy Ward Baker.

Produced by none other than the good folks at Hammer, this rootin’, tootin’ space opera delivered exactly what it promised: a western set among the stars, complete with shootouts and mustache-twirling baddies. This is an amusing little trifle, but it hasn’t aged that gracefully, with viewers more likely to glean ironic chuckles from it than genuine pleasure.

Ride a rocket Texas-style! Have a shoot-out in Moon City! Find a new frontier and a new kind of pioneer. But watch out for deadly moon maidens. IT’S THE FIRST MOON “WESTERN”.
