Halloween is a reimagining of the 1978 film of the same name.

Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger... The film was written, produced, and directed by Rob Zombie, and was released in the United States and Canada on August 31, 2007 September 28, 2007 in the UK, and internationally throughout October 2007. The film stars Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Tyler Mane, Brad Dourif, Danielle Harris, Danny Trejo, and four unknowns in other roles, including Daeg Faerch as young Michael Myers, Hanna R. Hall as Judith Myers, Kristina Klebe as Lynda Van Der Klok, and Scout Taylor-Compton as Laurie Strode.
