Product Description


If the supplemental features are any indication as to what life was like on the set of Halloween II, every day was either an insurmountable challenge or a laugh riot. Writer-director Rob Zombie's commentary is the most telling of the extras; Zombie details, in rueful but bemused tones, the daily struggle to complete the film with local technicians, driving rain, short days, and punishing weather. He also points out the many shortcuts he was forced to take to see his vision to the screen, and he details the 14 minutes of scenes deleted from the theatrical release (mostly inconsequential, though "The Pit" in the hospital basement is impressively nasty) that constitute the director's cut. Not everything about Halloween II was a chore, as the blooper reel indicates; it's nothing one hasn't seen before (blown takes, misfired props), but it does give the impression that the cast had a good time on the set. Less intriguing are the numerous deleted and extended scenes; there's a considerable amount of prolonged gore in the murder of Lou Martini (Daniel Roebuck), but most of the scenes are comprised of dialogue--not Zombie's strong suit, and since the film is already too long to begin with, the idea of sitting through more tedious scenes might not be appealing to viewers. Audition footage for some of the minor and supporting roles offers passing interest, but the extended "comedy" routines of faux horror movie host Uncle Seymour Coffins, and the multiple music videos by the cleverly named but utterly bland Captain Clegg and the Night Creatures, are forgettable at best. The extras are rounded out by a wealth of Sony movie previews, including District 9, Moon, and The Stepfather. --Paul Gaita

The first Halloween movie I ever saw was the 1981 version of Halloween II when I was around 7 years old. It scared the living daylights out of me and started my fascination with the series. Though there have been some horrible entries to the franchise, such as "H2O" and "Resurrection" - I hear alot of criticism and bashing of Rob Zombie's second foray into the Michael Myer's legend.

This is totally unfair and possibly the result of the high-bar set by his first remake a couple years earlier. I actually think this is one of the better installments. It is a well-crafted film with some interesting spins on what was becoming a tired franchise by the time Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks were being recruited to fill roles. I especially enjoyed Malcolm McDowell's Loomis as sleazeball opportunist (as opposed to Donald Pleasance's squeeky-clean Loomis); and hooded, bearded, unmasked Michael trekking vacant farmfields endlessly in a semi-psychedelic stupor.

Rob Zombie was in a difficult position to please long-time fans, those who want something more than Michael skulking the shadows breathing heavily, and newer horror fans who get bored with anything that isn't "Saw" or "Human Centipede". He did an outstanding job. The only misgiving is that Laurie's character is somewhat annoying and cries/screams/sulks waaaaaaaay too much.

I hope Mr.Zombie continues the series - his music career sure as hell isn't going anywhere!

I am reviewing the Theatrical Cut of Halloween 2.

I'm a big fan of Rob Zombie's films, but let's face it: The guy has his own unique style, artistic and not at all run of the mill. Not everybody likes it, and those who do "get it" will enjoy Halloween 2 more than those who don't.

I found Halloween 2 to be weaker than the original, and actually quite boring at times. Here's why:

The movie begins with a brief flashback scene to young Michael. Young actor Daeg Faerch has been recast, and the new kid didn't look quite right to me. Anyway from there, we go straight to pick up the action when Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) shot Michael Myers at the end of the first film. Laurie is wandering around in a daze, then she's hysterial, then she's running.... The problem here is that unless you watched both films directly in a row, you have no connection to her at all. You don't have a sense of why she's running, why she's hysterial. You know it intellectually, but you don't feel it. The viewer doesn't care. Zombie should have backed the film up a bit further because otherwise you just have a blood soaked girl running around.

Another thing that I felt is weak is that Zombie cheats the viewer with too many dream sequences that he tries to pass off as real until the dreamer wakes up. They are long and involved, and it happened more than once. Oh, and speaking of dream sequences, we get several visions from Myers too. Apparently he's been dreaming about his mother and a white horse his whole adult life. This feels tacked on just for the sake of the sequel. It does however enable Zombie to use "Knights In White Satin" by the Moody Blues twice in the film.

to say i was disappointed in Rob Zombie's followup to his 2007 Remake of Halloween would be an understatement.this thing is no nowhere near as good as that film was.for one thing,its about as exciting as watching paint drying or grass growing.it also goes straight into bizzaro land on more than one occasion,which doesn't really belong in the movie.it doesn't really fit,in my opinion.Zombie really had something going with his first attempt at breathing some much needed life into the franchise and putting his own spin on things.maybe he should have have just left it at that.all i know is he took several steps back with this misfire.for me,Halloween II (2009)is a 2/5

The film should have opened with:

WHITE HORSE - Since my wife's character .. I mean, ... a main character was killed off in the first film, I will quote some mumbo-jumbo excerpt from "The Subconscious Psychosis of Dreams" and have my wife .. I mean, a lead actress, portray an important character that influences another important character in this film. She will be dressed in white.. just because... and we'll throw in a white horse.. just because. She will continue to reappear throughout this film until all of the filmed footage is used.

-Excerpt from
My Journal .. I mean ..."The Subconscious Psychosis of blah-blah"

Moving on...
When this film was released back in 2009, it was butchered (no pun intended) by the critics and most of the audience. I, personally, do not care because I actually like it and prefer it over Zombie's original re-visioning of "Halloween". This sequel is brutal, unsettling, ghastly and it moves at a pretty brisk pace (well, at least one of the versions does... more on this later). Admittedly, I prefer the theatrical version but this unrated Director's cut offers some interesting additional footage and in my opinion, a very disappointing climax. Also note, that this version is not exactly scarier or bloodier; it is longer with revisions to timelines and characters. Most of the additional scenes deal with Laurie Strode's mental anguish. Also thrown in are a lot of unnecessary footage of Mikey and Rob Zombie's wife. For the horror nut, watch both versions and decide which one you like (or detest) better.

This grisly sequel opens with a brief flashback of a young Michael and his mother that introduces the "White Horse" theme, a reoccurring theme for the duration of the film.
