Product Description

Rob Zombie's H2 (HALLOWEEN) picks up at the exact moment that 2007's box-office smash, HALLOWEEN stopped and follows the aftermath of Michael Myers's (Tyler Mane) murderous rampage through the eyes of heroine Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor Compton).

Amazon.com

Rocker turned writer-director Rob Zombie returns to the horror field with this visually ambitious and aggressively brutal follow-up to his 2007 reinvention of John Carpenter’s seminal slasher Halloween. The 1981 sequel to the Carpenter film is completely ignored here (and for good reason) in favor of an extension of the central focus of Zombie’s Halloween, and all of his films, for that matter: the corruption at the heart of the nuclear family. Here, Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor Compton) is attempting to heal the psychic wounds from her previous encounter with brother Michael Myers (Tyler Mane) by bonding with Sheriff Brackett (Brad Dourif, a pleasure to watch as always) and his daughter Anne (Danielle Harris, herself a vet from the original run of Halloween sequels). Her previous surrogate father, Dr. Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) has forsaken his connection to Laurie by exploiting his connection to Michael with a tell-all book; meanwhile, Michael himself roams the lonely outskirts of Haddonfield, driven by visions of his mother (Sheri Moon Zombie) and a single-minded urge to bond with his sister at any cost.

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

Customer Reviews

Just like the first film, there are just way too many things wrong with this film for me to really enjoy it.
The Piper at the Gates
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.
Tommy Skylar
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.

The Amazonites have spoken and this movie got killed, lambasted by some as 'the worst Halloween movie', though there's no way it can approach the horror of the botched Curse or the Busta-Rhymes-was-the-best-part Resurrection.

I'm still not sure why this was given an August '09 release rather than...October/Halloween. Presumably, they didn't want to run up against the latest Saw offering, and perhaps they sensed the buzz of Paranormal Activity. Instead, they ran it against The Final Destination 3D, which still fared better.

Folks seem to love or hate the Rob Zombie Halloween excursions. Say this about Zombie...he is a horror movie fan and he tries something more personal this time around. Yes, we all know and (presumably) love the original Halloween II, where Michael Myers stalks Laurie in the eerily empty corridors of Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. And yes, we all know that it was revealed that Laurie was, in fact, Michael's sister, a plot twist conceived by John Carpenter when he ran out of ideas. So what should we expect when someone remakes 're-boots' or jump-starts a series and then remakes the sequel, too?

Yes, there are similar elements and plot points from earlier Halloween films, including the original Part II (the hospital, the sister angle, which we knew from the first Zombie installment, etc). But this is not a remake of the original Part II. Rob Zombie is going his own way with the blessing of the Akkad clan, and I think he does some interesting things story and plot-wise. There are clearly some expressionistic nods to Italian horror directors (Bava, Argento), and there's a strong nod to the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder and general insanity after you've been chased by a knife-wielding lunatic.

So much hate against this movie, and why? The theatrical version may be a little soft but this unrated cut is the most unrelenting and brutal movie Ive ever seen. There is nothing nice hiding in this movie. And I love it! In this version Laurie is messed up beyond repair and a total bitch to everyone she loves. More realistic considering what she went through in the first movie. Michael has been living off the land recovering from a gun shot to the face for the last 2 years until Baby...Mom says its time to go home. This is the way Michael was destined to be portrayed. Forget the naysayers who think they know good horror. They probably gave garbage like The Ring 5 stars. So anyways give it a shot and be prepared for a look into true evil!

I have to give Rob Zombie credit, for when he makes a sequel he doesn't just make the same film over again. Zombie obviously loves the old horror film and it shows in every horror film he has made. I watched both the unrated and theatrical versions of the film and I think the theatrical moves along more smoothly and has a better ending. The gore is trimmed down slightly, but doesn't take away from this brutal film in any way.

Zombie gives this film a very cool look and does create some eerie atmosphere, but I did find some elements confusing at times and that does take away from the overall experience. I wish they could have had the original actor who played young Michael in the first film as this actor just doesn't seem to be playing the same character. While the original was very withdrawn, the one in this film just seems like a regular kid. This could be due to the fact that he is only in the film as a figment of adult Michael and Angels imagination.

The kill scenes are brutal and not just because of the excessive gore, but because the set ups are genuine and that makes from some gut wrenching murders. Zombie also has a knack for placing actors that we have seen over the years in these scenes, so we feel an little more sorry for them.

The unrated version is longer and pulls us out of the action more times than needed, but it is certainly worth seeing for fans...I just preferred the theatrical. I do have one big gripe, why do they need to release the two versions separately?....I know the answer (GREED!), but it's shameful to charge fans twice for a film that isn't all that much different. I know I'm not alone when I say I want both versions, but I don't think it's worth paying the price!

First off, let me say that i've been a big fan of John Carpenter's "Halloween" since I first saw it in 1980. Parts 2-wherever they left off...not so much. But i've always believed strongly that the original was, and is, one of the greatest horror movies ever made. Carpenter understood that mounds of gore and constant 'false' scares (the cat jumps out of the closet, etc) did nothing for a film's fear factor-in fact, the director is always far more important than the content. If you don't believe that, watch Hitchcock's "Psycho"...then watch the remake. If you can stay awake through it.
That being said, there's room in the genre for an artist that liberally piles on the carnage and shocks, as long as that artist has a vision beyond his potential paycheck for the inevitable sequel(s). Once I saw Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects", I felt certain that the innovative musician had truly found his niche. He successfully created a film that could truly be called the only other possible compliment one can bestow upon a horror movie besides 'terrifying'...that compliment being 'disturbing'.
Naturally, when i heard Carpenter's classic would be getting the old 'revision' treatment, I was mildly angry. Does EVERY good-to-great motion picture need to be re-enacted for the attention deficient generation? Still, at the announcement of Zombie being given the honors, I had to assume that an essence of actual quality was likely. I also felt a bit saddened for the former 'White Zombie' frontman-just as 'Rejects' had introduced a potentially potent new force in the horror film industry, i knew there was no better way to knock people off your bandwagon than screwing up a beloved classic, especially one made by the equally admired Carpenter.
But once I finally decided to check out Mr.

First Halloween Theatrical cut
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
