Format: DVD
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!

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.

Format: Blu-ray
*WARNING: This Review Contains Spoilers*

If I'm being completely honest, I was very surprised when it was announced that there would be a sequel to Rob Zombie's "Halloween". From what I read at the time, Rob Zombie wanted to make "Halloween 2" entirely his own & not go based off of John Carpenter's "Halloween 2" & from what I saw in the film, he accomplished that.
The Movie: I'd written a review for Rob Zombie's "Halloween" & said it was dark, gory & there was profanity, much like his other movies, but his version of "Halloween 2" is 10x worse than his reimagining of "Halloween". This takes place immediately after Laurie Strode "kills" her brother, Michael Myers, we see her in the hospital suffering from pretty substantial injuries & she goes into surgery. Nothing is left to the imagination, we're shown broken bones, open wounds, blood, stitches & it's all graphically shown. Skip ahead a couple of years & Laurie is a completely different person, she's depressed, has tattoos, has dreadlocked hair, she's very much a changed person from when we first met her in "Halloween". However, who wouldn't change drastically if they found out their brother was a serial killer who killed your entire family? Another character who has changed is Danielle Harris' character, Annie, she's become a positive, vegan, recluse, which is again the polar opposite of her character in the 2007 version. I personally wasn't a fan of Laurie's new friends in this movie, unfortunately, like in the 2007 version, I found them to be rather irritating when they hung out together, but hey, that's just my opinion. The ending was a disappointment to me, the final scene with Anthony Perkins in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" only it wasn't unique & haunting.

The BluRay: It works very well, no issues with the disc.
