We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
I think the reason the original Halloween
worked so well is it taped in to that primal fear we all have of the boogeyman.
Michael is the noise you hear upstairs when your all alone. He's the bump in the night that wakes you up. I don't need to understand the thing in the night I just need to be afraid of it. I think to try to put anything else into it just ultimately ends of diluting it.
I think Zombie's movies are crap and it's a shame that if the idea had
to be done that someone with more talent didn't do it so we could instead be talking about whether or not it worked rather than if it could have.
