There are really two distinct halves to Rob Zombie's remake of "Halloween." First off we see a young Michael, played by a suitably creepy looking Daeg Faerch (good luck pronouncing that one). He's an awkward little doughboy of a kid from a lower middle class family in the suburbs. He lives with his stripper mom (Sheri Moon), slut sister (Scout Taylor Compton), and abusive stepfather (William Forsythe). From the first frames it's apparent that his life is not one that any kid should be subjected too, and it's having a definite toll on him.
