Halloween 2 (2009)
2009 / d. Rob Zombie
Rob Zombie’s sequel to his incredibly well done re-imagining of HALLOWEEN was sadly, an enormous letdown. An unfocused script was the culprit, which turned Michael Myers into a walking, talking (oh yeah, you heard right), heavily-bearded Jim Morrison lookalike. Zombie’s wife (Sherri Moon Zombie) returns as Michael’s mother, in a simply bizarre role that was far too reminiscent of Pamela Voorhees for my liking. However, the film was deliciously violent in typical Rob Zombie fashion. While I love him as a director, hopefully he’ll put this flop behind him and go back to making films more like THE DEVIL’S REJECTS.
