Don't Bother to watch this Crap.

It really isn't a good film. When you see the first Halloween from 1978 it was such a better movie then this. I mean seeing the Halloween II from 2009 just pretty much tells you this will be a horrible film. Again don't watch this. I don't understand how this even is a movie.
