30Bad: Halloween (2007)

Halloween 2007 Rob Zombie

Director John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic Halloween remains a staple in pop culture, from its iconic score to its eerily quiet antagonist, Michael Myers. However, due to a slew of subpar sequels, fans welcomed a 2007 remake in the hopes that it would revitalize the tired franchise.

While it was the highest-grossing film

in the series at the time, it became yet another negatively-received entry, with many disappointed at director Rob Zombie's portrayal of Michael's childhood and use of intense moments.

Following a more intense sequel (which earned both praise and criticism for straying far from the series' usual elements), fans seemed to get their wish for a sequel true to the original with last year's mega-hit, Halloween.
