    As much as I wanted to vote for awful beyond words...had to proudly proclaim that I have never seen either. Never have. Never will.

    I enjoyed both but I thought 2007 was more fun. But I wouldn't be surprised if I like H2 better when the Unrated Director's Cut comes to Blu-ray.

    I thought the first one was okay, far from good though. I will probably eventually see the second one, although I am in no rush. The "no theme music" and homeless hillbilly Myers sounds pretty bad to me, as does Sherri's ghost and white horse. And the fact that Laurie is now a crack whore. And the fact that Myers lifts up a car and tosses it. And... Oh who am I kidding, the whole movies looks pretty terrible!

    H2 held my attention better. I still can't make it through the first remake without wanting to nod off.

    Watching the first was enough for me to just say fuck no to the rest of this bullshit remake series.

    I'm among the elite that have yet to subject my eyes to these travesties :D

    You'd really have to strap me down, Malcolm McDowell style, to have me watch them (or I'd have to be delirious with the flu, like I was when I finally watched House of the Dead, too lazy to change the channel. :p)

    Yeah, and this should have been an option in the poll, Rhett. "Hated the first, no need to see the second"

    Intentional pun at how far he's fallen?

    I've only seen part of the first one. It was on a free preview of some pay channel back in July. I DVR'd it, suffered through the first 20 minutes or so, then FF'd to Danielle Harris' topless scene. Then mercifully cleared it from my DVR for all time.

    I only saw a few min of the first total shit. I fucking loath Rob Zombie now. Dude went from being my hero to a total zero. I can't fucking stand him now & I will not support his films.

    I think I prefer being kicked in the junk. Problem is, I don´t know which Zombie´s Halloween is closer to junk.

    I picked the first one. The second one is close, but the first had the bigger statement - convincing the viewer that a re-imagining was not only possible, but worth the price of admission. Re-treading pre-established horror holy ground and still making it cool. The best scene in that one for me was the tableau of the crime scene with Michael in the squad car. A really chilling moment.

    What I liked best about the second film was the girl who played Laurie. Much like Devil's Rejects you get to see her character in a different light than the first film and she really brought it out well.

    i prefer the halloween 2007 but i am anxious to see the director's cut of H2 as it sounds way better than the theatrical abomination

    Both are awful beyond words.

    I must qualify my vote, however, with the admission that I walked out on both remakes before they were over.
