Halloween II (2009) Review:

This remake is very different from the original Halloween II movie, both in the story and in the atmosphere. Zombie’s movies are always really brutal and this one is no exception (the skull stamping scene!). This creates a different atmosphere than the original saga…less mysterious but more barbarous!

Aside from the gore, the story is a little more deep, contrasting with the shallowness of Halloween II. I also really enjoyed hating the personage of Dr Loomis in this movie, and I think Malcolm McDowell did a masterful job at playing this role! On the opposite, I did not like so much the new Michael Myers. Rob Zombie chose to humanize him by regularly showing his face, having him groaning, etc. I loved the original Myers, enigmatic with his immaculate mask, and who never gets hurt. Here, I had the feeling that I was facing a different Myers…a more brutal…but a less scary one. I also did not like the visions of Myers, which were kind of unrelated to the movie and felt like it was the only pretext that Zombie found to feature his wife (once more!) in his movie.

Still, I liked this sequel better than the original Halloween II, but I bet this will divide Halloween fans!
