I voted Rob Zombie remake.
I respect the original very much, but it hasn't aged well at all. I showed it to my brother-in-law about 2 years ago and told him what a great and classic film it was, but as I watched it I was bored out of my mind. Way too slow paced for me.
I like the fact that Zombie shows us Michael's childhood and shows how he goes from a violent youth to the silent killer he grew up to be. The back story was very enjoyable and when he escapes, it's just awesome.

I heard the original concept of the franchise was supposed to be different creepy and horrible events happening around the Halloween holiday, but Michael was so popular they had to build the franchise around him. Same thing with Friday The 13th.
I watched it but didn't much care for it myself. It wasn't completely horrible, just not really my taste. Interesting concept overall, but I felt it dragged a bit.
