Continuing the HALLOWEEN legacy that spawned eight films over 25 years and began in 1978 with John Carpenter's classic featuring the ruthless, masked killing machine Michael Myers, acclaimed musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) directs his version of this successful franchise.
Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN focuses on the early years of young Michael Myers (newcomer Daeg Faerch) 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 Sanatorium maximum-security mental facility where he is treated by noted child behaviourist Dr Samuel Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) - the only person who can truly understand Michael's evil nature.
Now, seventeen years later, Michael (wrestler-turned-actor Tyler Mane (Sabretooth in X-MEN, TROY) 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.
In Haddonfield, Michael begins stalking a high school girl, Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton), and her friends, Annie (Danielle Harris) and Lynda (Kristina Klebe). When Dr Loomis, now a successful author for his book on Michael, hears of his escape, he enlists the help of Haddonfield's Sheriff Brackett (Brad Dourif) to find and put an end to Michael's reign of terror.
Rob Zombie's reunites Rob Zombie with several cast members of his previous films, HOUSE OF 100 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, including his wife Sheri Moon Zombie, William Forsythe, Ken Foree, Lew Temple, and Danny Trejo.
