Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) thought
that she had killed Michael Myers (Tyler
Maine) but continues to have nightmares
about him as well as becoming like him
while living with her friend Annie
Brackett (Danielle Harris) and her
Sheriff father Lee (Brad Dourif) plus his
body was never found after a terrible
accident with an ambulance that was
driving his corpse away a year later when
it's only a few days till Halloween.
To top this all off Michael's former
counsellor at the Smith's Grove Asylum
Dr. Samuel Loomis (Malcom McDowell) wrote
a book based on Michael Myers and is
famous nationwide for it and became very
greedy which upset alot of parents whom
were victims to Michael's killings a year
before but is convinced that Michael is
However Michael seemes to be very alive
and is going back to Haddonfield to stalk
his sister Laurie and seems to be haunted
by his Mother Deborah (Sherri
Moon-Zombie) and by a younger Michael
(Chase Wright Vanek) to bring his sister
back to the Myers family. He kills others
that get in his way till he gets Laurie
all to himself as well as his ghostly
family to top it all off.
Rob Zombie does
an overly impressive job with this sequel
showing a good beginning that involved
Deborah Myers and and a young Michael Myers as mother and son in an asylum
which looked heartwarming on her trying
to make him happy.
Next we have a good dark shot on Laurie Strode all bloodied in the
dark walking in the middle of the road
acting like a basket case holding a gun
with Sheriff Lee Bracket coming out of
his police vehicle and trying to talk
some sense into her and slowly taking the
gun away from her.
We spot a good conversation between two coroners having
a discussion about sex and women driving
along in the road and then a good
reaction on one of them when they spot a
cow and good close up shots on the
vehicle crashing with them getting
bloodied. There's a good close up shot on one of them acting weak in pain and then a
good shot on Michael Myers coming
up and cutting his throat which looked
dark and creepy. There's a good shot on
him later on walking along the long road
with a distant shot on Deborah looking like a ghost with a horse talking
We have a good shot on Laurie acting weak limping in a hospital hallway
as well as asking a nurse for some pills and we have a good shot on
her turning around with her face sliced
as well as a good freaked out shot on Laurie after seeing this and then Michael coming up from behind her wearing his
mask and then nice moments on him
brutally slaying this nurse.
There's many good shots on her running
down some corrdior stairs in the hospital
with her screaming as well as her running
in a rainstorm and a nightwatchman trying to calm
her and she is choked up as you have a
feeling something deadly is going to
happen. We do spot a good shot on Michael whacking him in the back with an axe as
well as him trying to tear through and
get to Laurie with shots
on her freaking out.
There's a nice moment with Laurie in a councilling room with Barbara Collier counselling
her about her nightmares with Michael
Myers as well as talking about his body
not found. We also spot a nice close up
shot on Laurie starting
to weep about missing her parents.
We have a nice night shot on a group of people in their truck having a
discussion and then one of them standing in the
middle where their vehicle is with two of them whacking this person
with a bat and then him trying
to apologise for their behavior as that
all was right on track and good timing
We spot a good shot on Lee eating a pizza and acting sarcastic with
a shot on Michael gutting open a
dog and eating it.
There's a good shot on young Michael Myers standing in front with a dark shot on the older one standing there behind him in a dark barn
as well as Deborah talking to them
with a horse next to her telling them
it's almost Halloween and finding his
sister which was given a nice dark feel
We spot a nice nightmare scene with Laurie putting on a clown outfit with a
shot looking up on her as well as taping Annie Brackett to a chair and then screaming
at her stabbing her along with other
tense shots on some flashback scene's.
There's some good conversations with
people in a strip bar
having a discussion on seeing one of them
on TV which looked good and entertaining.
There's many good shots between two of these people standing outside with someone giving Michael threats and about
to get violent which this piece showed a nice darkness to all of this as
well as good intense shots on Michael himself stomping on someone's face.
We spot a good area at a book signing
convention with a customer coming up to Loomis and telling him being responsible for his
daughters death and trying to shoot him
which looked very creepy.
There's a great moment with Laurie freaking out and packing stuff up
trying to get out of the house she's
staying in with Annie trying to
talk to her as this scene looked
We have a great moment with Laurie getting into a screaming rage with
3 girls about her being Michael's
sister and screaming out loud about it
making this moment extremely tense.
There's other good scene's with them
partying out and getting drunk.
We spot many good shots on others at a party in their costumes as
well as shots on a band performing with
strippers. During this moments we spot a
nice shot on Deborah with Young Michael and Laurie getting into
a screaming rage asking who they are.
There's a nice shot on Michael entering
a bathroom door towards Annie with her turning around and looking
shocked trying to get away.
We spot a nice moment between Laurie holding Annie and sobbing along
with some good shots on Michael smashing
through a door.
There's a great close up shot on Lee with a nice tense expression on his face
entering his home demanding on what has
We have a great shot on Laurie running through a field screaming
with a nice shot on a light shining
through some tree's.
There's a great shot on Michael turning
over a car with her inside
as well as close up shots on her looking
hurt passing out.
We spot a nice shot on Michael carrying Laurie along with Deborah and Young Michael walking with him.
Many good close up shots between Deborah and Laurie with Young Michael grabbingLaurie herself and Deborah demanding her to tell her
she loves her.
We have alot of good shots with policemen circling around a shack holding
rifles and a helicopter circling around
the area as well as Loomis trying to talk to Laurie and
her just going crazy. This was one of Zombie's strongest work on this film. He earned my
respect as a great filmmaker although he
did a good job in his other films.
Bottom line is that I normally don't
like sequels better than the original
flick but I have to tell you I enjoyed
this one alot better since the first one
was a bit rushed with Michael Myers
killing one after another and this time Rob
Zombie focused a bit better with the
story and Michael going to his journey
back to Haddonfield and there was more
going on on the few days counting right
to Halloween night. It has nothing on the
original part 2 since we only spot Laurie
Strode in the hospital during the first
bit of the film and then it takes place a
year after that with her living with her
friend and father. It borrows a bit on
part 4 with a coroner scene on Michael
escaping from the ambulance and killing
one of the corner's as well as part 6
during a wild outdoor party. But hey,
there's nothing wrong with that
I loved the darkness to the story showing
ghostly presences since we don't really
notice that in the original Halloween flicks.
It was showing tribute's to those retro
films alot better than Rob Zombie's other flicks that is if you've seen House
of 1000 Corpses and that one
didn't cut it too well.
We have alot of fast paced action with
this one plus Michael Myers doesn't
always wear his mask while killing people
and wearing a hood too so the story
seemed a bit different in which a remake
I will tip my hat off to Rob Zombie for
this one and I hope he will direct a part
3 since a door was left open for one but
it seemed to involve Laurie Strode at the
end of the film and you will see what I
mean once you've watched it. If you
haven't seen this flick on the big screen
then I advise you to check it out now
since it does seem to have a 70's feel to
it although it took place present day.
The acting is
terrifically done as lead actress Scout
Taylor-Compton (Laurie Strode) struts her stuff alot
better than in the first
film showing extreme intensity and energy
too along with her screaming and crying
emotions too. She brought all of this
together very well and knew how to act
like a party animal as well. She earned
her role to be a worthy character
actress. Does well crying in a councilling office discussing her parents as she was believeably emotional.
Malcolm McDowell (Dr. Samuel Loomis) returns
and shows a different type of personaity
this time by acting greedy and full of
himself after being famous for Michael's
shrink. He brought out a good aggressive
behavior too. We have a good moment with him at a convention about his
book on Michael Myers and him getting
extremely obnoxious and vulgar telling
everyone that Michael is dead when being
questioned if he's still possibly alive
which looked like that he was really
arrogant. Plus he was quite witty too
in many spots of the film making out that
he's a star.
Danielle Harris (Annie Brackett) is back as well and
knew how to act bitchy and vulgar just
like in the first flick as well as
showing a nice caring side to her. I
loved her work no matter what she did in
Brad Dourif (Sheriff Lee Brackett) stood out better as the
head sheriff showing a nice sacrcastic
but charming appeal to his role in the
film and knew how to act intense and
upset when something bad happens. He
brought all of this together and deserved
the great credit by what he did. He can
wear many other hats than the voice of
Chucky from Child's Play.
Sheri Moon Zombie (Deborah Myers) showed a different
side to her than a loving but
dysfunctional mother like in the first
flick as she really performed well by
acting ghostly and evil. She had a great
coldness to her speaking as well as
performing like she's a deceiving angel
I had to comment on Margot Kidder's (Barbara Collier) cameo
as a counsellor in the film as she looked
great for the part and had the realisitc
and caring but serious attitude for it.
We also have a good humoress performeance
by Daniel Roebuck (Big Lou) as a sleazy
strip club owner and had the prefect
looks for it too. He stood out well even
if he was only in it for less than 5
We spot many other cameo's of cult actors
from horror film's during the 70's and
80's like in most Rob Zombie's flicks since it's a real treat to see
A woman is topless
barebreasted making out with her employer
during a strip bar after hours as well as
her trying to escape from Michael fully
naked briefly exposing her butt as well
A bunch of topless strippers are dancing
on stage with a band at a Halloween
A face is being
stitched up as well as a person's hand
We have a nurse's face sliced and then
brutally slayed with lots of blood
There's tons of bloody stabbings and cut
A head is cut off
A dog is gutted and eaten by Michael
A guy's head is stomped to pieces
a violent bloodshed in a bathroom
Plenty of brutal bashing and slaying by
Tyler Bates returns
to compose the music for this sequel
using the same low maoning sounds from
the original film as well as other good
dark sounds. He also shows some good
echoey piano playing for certain parts of
the scene's along with low piano pounding
which sounds really deadly for the
terrors going on.
We have a bitchin songtrack
like in the first film with alot of old
school metal music and rock music too.
For one I loved how to Moody Blues was
performing on a TV show at the hospital
with their classic hit "Knights in
White Satin" since it has that
breezy feel to it.
I also loved the brief heavy metal track
"AM I Evil" by Diamond Head during Laurie Strode's character
speeding in her car.
We also have a cover song during the
closing credits on a cover of Nazareth titled "Love Hurts" yet this
band really bites by performing this one
and it isn't the same.
Strode: [walking town a road
covered in blood] I killed him... I
Sheriff Lee Brackett: [confronting
Laurie] Who did you kill, sweetie?
Who did you kill?
Laurie Strode: ...I killed him.
Strode: [about Michael Myers]
I know he's not gonna come back just
because of some stupid holiday.
Samuel Loomis: [in a press
conference] Let me make this clear:
Michael Myers is dead! D-E-A-D!
Strode: I'm not me.
Mya Rockwell: Who are you, then?
Laurie Strode: I'm Michael Myers'
boy: [spotting Michael Myers]
Are you a giant?
Brackett: Look at me, what is going
on? Just let me call my dad, okay? We can
talk to him.
Laurie Strode: You know what, I
have a message for your dad! Tell him
that Angel says "Fuck you!"
Annie Brackett: Who is Angel?
Strode: [Yelling outside her
house, drunk] Hey world, guess what?
I'm Michael Myers' sister! I'm fucked!
