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

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).

3.0 out of 5 stars Laurie's crazy and someone even hits a cow July 26, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

Well, as bad as "Remakes" & "New Versions" of movies go, they just seem to keep being made, case in point, Rob Zombie's "New Version" of Halloween II. The plot is soooo far removed from the original {& far superior} Halloween II, that it should of died a quick death right from its conception. True, you shouldn't make a remake EXACTLY like the original, but that doesn't mean you should stray TOO FAR from the original. Actor Malcolm Mc Dowell's awful portrayal of Dr. Loomis is appalling. He makes Actor Donald Pleasance's BRILLIANT portrayal of the good Doctor cringe in embarrassment. Same with Actress Scout Taylor Compton, who portrayed Laurie Strode. Actress Jamie Lee Curtis should be shaking her head at disappointment at her psycho performance. Along with the also GOD AWFUL Jason X, this movie ranks a great horror stinker, that makes the original cry in shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unrelenting and Brutal February 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Creative liberty... December 17, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Well, Rob Zombie basically could do whatever he wanted in this entry, and he did. Yes, there is a lot of gratuitous violence. And yes, his trademark "hillbilly" characters seem to dot the landscape. But, there is something deeply human and raw about this Halloween. No, it won't be for everyone. Unless you are fond of quizzical cameos, like that of Margot Kidder and Weird Al Yankovic. Zombie is obviously a diehard fan of the horror genre, and it shows. He pulls out all the stops and gives us his version of a Halloween that could never be, but now always will. I don't think he ruined anything. He merely was given a chance and now shows us a "Halloween" through his creative lens. Nothing right or wrong about it. It simply is. It won't scare you, nor will it be lauded, but it sticks with you. Like it or not.

1.0 out of 5 stars Halloween 1 = Amazing! Halloween 2 = Suckfest! April 10, 2010
Format:DVD
Every once in a while a movie or a cd comes a long that I feel people should be warned about. This movie is definitely one of those. Being a true fan of what I call "the trifecta of classic horror movie villians" which of course means Freddy Krugar, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers, I was amazed at how well Rob Zombie remade the first Halloween movie. It showed Michael become the evil being that we all know and love. It gave us a new look into his past which was previously only partially revealed. Most of all it stuck close enough to the original Halloween while making subtle changes to delight old fans and enlighten new ones at the same time. Bravo Rob Zombie! Bravo!

Now..........Halloween 2. WHAT THE F&%$ HAPPENED? I swear Rob Zombie must have been asleep in the chair through most of this. It starts out just like the original Halloween 2. Laurie is in the hospital after being attacked and Michael comes for her leaving a bloody mess of bodies in the process. Beautiful. As im watching Im thanking god that Rob Zombie is remaking this classic. Then BAM! 30 minutes into the movie Laurie wakes up and whats this? It was all a dream? NOOOOOOOO! Then you get to sit through the next 90 minutes watching as Michael Myers keeps seeing visions of white horses and his dead mother? They take a killer with no motive and turn him into a mamas boy on an acid trip? I swear I will kick Rob Zombie in the nuts if I ever see him for ruining what should have been such an easy remake. I saw this in the theater when it first came out and about an hour into the movie I wanted to walk out. The only thing that kept me there was the hope that it would eventually get better. It never did. In fact.......the last scene is so stupid and juvenile you wonder if your even still watching a Halloween movie. DONT YOU EVER MAKE ANOTHER MOVIE AS LONG AS YOU LIVE ROB ZOMBIE! YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO CALL YOURSELF A FAN OF HORROR!

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.
