Just as Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects was an exploitation flick masquerading as a horror movie, his remake of John Carpenter's 1978 classic is a slasher movie posing as an art film. There are more canted angles and flashy audio mixes than corpses, more scenes of fastidiously rendered gore than chills in this speculation about how ten-year-old Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch) grew up to be the silent, masked serial killer (Tyler Mane) who escapes from a mental institution to terrorize his hometown. (Hint: mom was a stripper, older sis a slut, and white-trash stepdaddy had fewer brains than the little psycho's pet rat.) The setup is tediously slow, while the later murders are packed so tightly it's like watching a blender on high speed. William Forsythe, Malcolm McDowell, and Brad Dourif help mitigate Zombie's shortcomings, and Micky Dolenz pops up in a cameo. R, 109 min.
