Aesthetically, H2 is striking, thanks largely to the ashen color scheme by cinematographer Brandon Trost (Crank 2: High Voltage), which underscores the doom-laded spiral track each of the main characters seem to travel in the film. And Zombie is to be commended for venturing outside of his comfort zone--the grimy, pop-culture ironic, white trash environment his characters frequently inhabit--with the scenes between Michael and his mother. But again, his ambitions don’t meet with his abilities--Moon looks impressive, but her apocalyptic mutterings ring more silly than spectral, especially when she’s forced to play opposite an enormous pale horse (insert heavy-handed Biblical imagery here). Most fans will find these moments more tedious than inspired, and a distraction from the murders, which retain Zombie’s preference for mayhem. He succeeds in this department, but if the end result is a menu of ugly killings, the point of revamping the Halloween franchise is somewhat moot, since the threadbare follow-ups to the Carpenter original already achieved that goal. Zombie’s knack for offbeat casting remains his most inspired talent: Haddonfield is filled with cult icons like Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Margot Kidder, and Daniel Roebuck, who jostle for space with rough-hewn character players like Duane Whitaker, Mark Boone Junior, and Dayton Callie (Deadwood) and left-field cameos by Howard Hesseman and “Weird Al” Yankovic. --Paul Gaita
Just like the first film, there are just way too many things wrong with this film for me to really enjoy it.
Then in 2009 he releases a sequel Halloween II, now this one is not exactly a remake of the original sequel it's a sequel to Rob's remake of the classic horror film.
So, with that counting as the motivation for Michael (more or less), it's on to a film filled with just as many unlikable characters as the first one.
I like this movie because it is more so about what started his killing spree as a child. That kid is mixed up! Read morePublished 10 days ago by Kimberly Greasham

This movie is all over the place. It's a bit of a mess. I understand what director Rob Zombie was trying to accomplish and respect it, but he sacrificed too much in character to... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Holbs

Here is the version you want..... Amazon's description makes it sound as if it is full screen only. It's actually a flipper - one side widescreen/one side p&s. plus a 2nd disc with bonus features.

Actually, there's really not more blood and gore. Maybe in the scene where they're stitching Laurie back together at the beginning, but that's about it.
The big differences revolve around Laurie's mental health. There's a longer scene with her shrink and one that I don't remember being in the... Read More
