He points out the various locations they shot at while also drawing our attention to where he took footage out and why. He also talks about the music choices he made and why he picked a certain song that appeared in the film. Zombie spends a lot of time talking about the challenges he faced on certain scenes. He also points out the new footage in this cut and why he put it back. The filmmaker delivers another solid commentary that is well worth a listen if you’re a fan of this film.

I think this is a very solid effort. I havent heard any of ROb Zombie's other commentaries, but I will be after this one. I always give a lot of credit when 1 person does the entire commentary and really keeps it informative w/little to no dead air.

I wasnt sure what to expect from this commentary. I did want to hear more about the various versions of the film and the choices made. And this is covered in the commentary but not as much as id like it to have been. I also wanted to hear more about the development of the film. But thats enough of me talking about what i didnt hear. I too havent heard any other RZ chat tracks but will see them out. He covers most aspects of writing, direction, casting and music and film clips here and does give a great insight into this film (which i do enjoy. its not better or worse than John Carpenters original. Its just different)

Rob Zombie genuinely cares about his movies, it is very evident in all of his commentaries. Halloween is no different, regardless of your opinion of this movie, this is a great commentary. He's very informative and does a spectacular job of filling the movie with his commentary, very little dead air (especially for a single person commentary).

A great commentary for a bad film. Rob's got a very pleasant sounding voice despite his reputation. He talks about casting against type (Brad Dourif as a police officer and not a serial killer for once), how Malcolm McDowell kept making fun of Udo Kier because of his accent, how they couldn't get the baby to cry in the opening because the baby found the father's shouting voice soothing, (huh?) the rape scene in the mental hospital was meant to show you that this sort of things really happen at places like this, how John Carpenter supported him and differences between the original and this film.

Even if you don't like this movie, give it a listen.
