Halloween (2007)

Halloween is the 2007 re-imagined remake of John Carpenter's original 1978 horror classic. This film marks the third horror movie directed by rock musician turned director Rob Zombie (the first two being House of 1000 Corpses and its sequel, The Devil's Rejects). This film diverged solidly from the original film in that it gave a much larger back story to Doctor Loomis and Michael Myers, primarily his childhood years and the years that he was incarcerated in the mental hospital. Also, in the original Halloween, the revelation that Laurie Strode is related to Michael Myers was not revealed until the second Halloween movie (the primary reason why Laurie encountered Michael Myers in the original script was completely incidental; she just happened to be around the other teens who crossed paths with Myers). Also of note is the casting of Danielle Harris in the film, having portrayed Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4 and Halloween 5, but as a different character in the remake. In February 2009, Rob Zombie began filming the sequel H2, which was released in theaters in the fall of 2009, a really fast turnaround time for a major motion picture.


The following weapons were used in the film Halloween (2007):

Notes

Gun Law Inaccuracies

One of the more inaccurate Hollywood falsehoods is the depiction that anyone can walk into a gun store in Illinois and walk out with a handgun, no questions asked. This is a common myth that is, unfortunately, propagated constantly in Hollywood and in movie scripts. Though based on the real life town of Haddonfield, NJ (Original co-writer and producer Debra Hill grew up in Haddonfield, NJ), the fictional town of Haddonfield is based in Illinois. In the state of Illinois there is a 72 hour waiting period for handguns and all buyers must apply for and receive an FOID (Firearms Owners Identification Card). The film depicts Dr. Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) as someone who knows nothing about guns, walking into a large, established retail gun store and managing to walk out with a Colt Python revolver. Not very likely in this day and age, however, it is myths like these that fuel calls for 'stricter gun control' amongst people who are ignorant of current gun laws.
