Review: This is panned by almost everyone and I can see why. I don’t like it, but I can notice a few positives in it. I think Zombie did a decent job with the visuals. Brad Dourif was great in this. This was one of the few times that I almost ever cried in a horror film, for Dourif’s acting. Overall, the movie is too bizarre for a Halloween film. Some of the acting is annoying and the films gets too Rob Zombish, if that makes sense..
