Sheri Moon Zombie,
Michael Myers is still at large and no less dangerous than ever. After a failed reunion to reach his baby sister at their old home, Laurie Strode is immediately taken to a hospital to be treated by the wounds that had been afflicted by her brother a few hours ago. However, Michael isn't too far off and will continue his murdering 'Halloween' rampage until he gets his sister all to himself. Written by
(at around 1h 17 mins) When Laurie and Mya find Annie near death upstairs, Laurie tells Mya to go and call the police. Mya agrees, and slowly walks off screen, as Laurie turns away. The next shot shows Mya sprinting from that spot, with Laurie completely out of sight, not even standing in the door frame. But in the shot after, Laurie is clearly standing in the door frame, which was completely visible in the previous shot. See more »

Yes I'm one of the few people who thoroughly enjoyed rob zombie's remake of halloween. So I was extremely excited to find out he was making the second one.
I love Zombie's directing style and I do think he is somewhat talented. But this movie just wasn't his best. The style and feel of the film was perfect. But the storyline was complete trash. He should have stuck to the original story.
Zombie's "re-imagining" of the second coming of Michael Myers was way off. Yeah he spiced up the original with Michael's backstory, but he completely redid the second one.
So if you just want to see people get stabbed with a cool directorial style and nice lighting(oh and boobs, lots of those) then yeah you might like it.
But for what it's worth, the backbone of any good movie is good source material, and the source material for this was Zombie's lackluster screenplay.
Shame. The first one was so promising. This one definitely ended it. Not only because Zombie says he won't direct another, but because it went so far downhill from the first one it basically killed itself.
Oh and the final scene in the movie is ridiculously laughable and will most likely give you a WTF look on your face.
5/10 for this one. Just don't take it too seriously and think of it as another slasher flick and you may enjoy it for what it is. Just another slasher flick. Nothing special here.
