On August 31, 2007 Rob Zombie unleashed his vision of ‘The Shape’ – Michael Myers – onto the moviegoing audiences.

The reimagining largely kept to the original 1978 John Carpenter classic wherein Myers (Tyler Mane) as a child massacres his family on Halloween which results in his incarceration in a mental institute, only to escape years later to reek bloody mayhem on the town of Haddonfield and his unknowing baby sister Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton).

Zombie however took the story further by making both an origin and remake, allowing him to delve into the backstory of young Myers, played by newcomer Daeg Faerch. Zombie looked into young Myers tragic relationship with his mother Debbie (Sheri Moon Zombie) who despite the massacre of her family tries to connect with her son. The film also explored Myers relationship with Dr Loomis (Malcolm McDowell).

Rob Zombie’s Halloween held onto the coveted Labor Day Weekend box office record for 14 years before Marvel’s Shang-Chi knocked it off the top spot in 2021.
