Halloween (2007) - Synopsis

With “Halloween,” writer/director Rob Zombie, acclaimed musician and visionary director of “The Devil’s Rejects” and “House of 1000 Corpses,” reimagines one of the most iconic films in the annals of horror, director John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, “Halloween,” featuring the ruthless, masked killing machine Michael Myers.

Inspired by Carpenter’s 1978 original and his theme that “evil can appear in even the smallest of towns,” Rob Zombie “Halloween” focuses on the early years of young Michael Myers and the events leading up to his fateful Halloween night murder rampage in the quiet town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Following that brutal night, Michael begins seventeen years of incarceration at the Smith’s Grove Sanitarium maximum-security mental facility where he is treated by noted child behaviorist Dr. Samuel Loomis – the only person who can truly understand Michael’s evil nature.

Now, seventeen years later, Michael escapes from the mental facility on Halloween day and begins a murderous trek back to Haddonfield to continue his killing streak and seek resolution to events from his past.
