Halloween II

Rated R 105 minutes 2009

Rob Zombie did a pretty good job with Halloween in 2007. I didn’t really like his take, but it definitely had a hint of decent filmmaking. He also got the mask right, which hadn’t happened since John Carpenter’s 1978 original. Regrettably, Zombie has made the worst of his four films with Halloween II. He gets ridiculous in his inexplicable need to explore the psyche of Myers. Don’t get me wrong; I liked some of the Myers backstory in Zombie’s first Halloween (like Michael eating candy corn before offing his stepdad and sister). This time out, we’re subjected to Myers’ dream visions, which include his ghost mom and a younger version of himself. We also get Scout Taylor-Compton whining incessantly, and the sort of messy filmmaking that made Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses so awful.
