Halloween II
Print
Michael Myers has returned home to sleepy Haddonfield, Illinois, to take care of some unfinished family business with his sister. But, Laurie is attempting to heal the psychic wounds from her previous encounter with Michael by bonding with Sheriff Brackett and his daughter Anne. Dr. Loomis has forsaken his connection to Laurie by exploiting his connection to Michael with a tell-all book. In the mean time, Michael himself roams the lonely outskirts of Haddonfield, driven by visions of his mother and his single-minded urge to bond with his sister at any cost.

A very poorly done sequel. Pointless confusing dream sequences, unlikable characters (especially Laurie and Loomis), and Michael spends 90% of this movie not wearing his mask and making these stupid grunting sounds.

First off all, why on earth is Misses Myers and young Michael in this? It completely ruins the movie. There is NO reason why they should be be in this, it's not Nightmare on Elm Street, this is Halloween! Save the dream/mind games for another franchise. Maybe a flashback scene, if that. But no, they're the driving force behind Michael for the entire movie. Awful, awful concept. Also they replaced the young Michael actor with a kid who looks nothing and acts nothing like the child from the first movie. Weird.

On to the characters. Laurie, her two friends, and Loomis are all largely unlikable. The only characters I enjoyed in this were Danielle Harris' and the Sheriff. Michael is not even the same guy. If he was completely silent for the first film, why would he suddenly start grunting? it's really noticeable and makes me feel like I'm not even watching a Halloween movie. Also if you want to watch a movie were you see Michael Myers eat a dog, this is the movie for you.

There are a few redeeming qualities about this movie, but not many. The killing scenes, as always, are great. Michael does some cool stuff like flip a car as well.

Overall, it doesn't feel like a Halloween movie, Michael doesn't feel like Michael, pointless characters, inclusion of characters who shouldn't have been in the movie at all (Michael's mom), and the sense that Rob Zombie didn't want to do this sequel in the first place make this a very, very poor movie. Can't say I recommend this one at all. Stick to his first movie, it's much better.

i lovesd this mlvie cause it was like so bloddy and really a fun thing to watch ... but i kind of liked the first part cause it tellsm the whole story and stuff

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Not sure why the negative reviews. Extremely artsy and risk-taking. Shot viscerally and beautifully on 16mm. The best film Zombie has made yet. I say skip all his other films. This is where it's at.
