Halloween II (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
09.03.09

Halloween II (2009) The events of the story pick up right at the end of Rob Zombie's first HALLOWEEN movie, which a wounded and blood covered Laurie Strode walking down a road, saying she killed Michael. Then she's taken to the hospital. The police show up at the crime scene and start taking bodies away, including Michael's. However, he's not dead. After the ambulance taking him to the morgue crashes after hitting a cow he wakes up and kills the one surviving driver. Then, he makes his way back to the hospital to deal with Laurie. When she's caught by him she wakes up. It was only a dream! The only thing that was true is that Michael's body disappeared that night.

Now, it's one year later and Laurie is having difficulty adjusting. She's living with her friend Annie and her father, the Sheriff (Brad Dourif). And she keeps on having these incredibly violent dreams of Michael killing. However, it's eventually established that there's some type of psychic bond between the two siblings because they both see the same things in the dream. At times it felt like Rob Zombie was trying to make a PHANTASM movie, not a HALLOWEEN movie.

There's also a parallel story with Dr. Loomis and how he is promoting his new book on Michael Myers, but that is predictable.

Yes, the killings are brutal than in the first film but storywise there wasn't enough to keep me interested. In fact, I found myself fidgeting in my seat after the first half hour, never a good sign. The movie also ends in the nearly the same way as the first film.

Not only is this sequel completely unnecessary, it's boring.
