Manufacturer Description

Rob Zombie's H2 (HALLOWEEN) picks up at the precise moment that 2007's box-office smash, HALLOWEEN stopped and follows the aftermath of Michael Myers's (Tyler Mane) homicidal rampage through the eyes of heroine Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor Compton).

Rocker turned writer-director Rob Zombie returns to the scary field with this visually enthusiastic and aggressively ruthless follow-up to his 2007 reinvention of John Carpenter's influential slasher Halloween. The 1981 sequel to the Carpenter movie is totally neglected right here (and for good factor) in favor of an extension of the main focus of Zombie's Halloween, and all of his movies, for that matter: the corruption at the heart of the nuclear family. Here, Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor Compton) is attempting to recover the psychic wounds from her previous encounter with bro Michael Myers (Tyler Mane) by bonding with Sheriff Brackett (Brad Dourif, a pleasure to watch as always) and his child Anne (Danielle Harris, herself a vet from the original run of Halloween sequels). Her previous surrogate father, Dr. Loomis (Malcolm McDowell) has actually abandoned his connection to Laurie by exploiting his connection to Michael with a tell-all book; on the other hand, Michael himself roams the lonely borders of Haddonfield, driven by visions of his mom (Sheri Moon Zombie) and a single-minded need to bond with his sis at any cost.Aesthetically, H2 is

striking, thanks mostly to the ashen color design by cinematographer Brandon Trost( Crank 2: High Voltage), which underscores the doom-laded spiral track each of the main characters seem to travel in the movie. And Zombie is to be applauded for venturing outside of his convenience zone-- the filthy, pop-culture ironic, white garbage environment his characters frequently live in-- with the scenes between Michael and his mom. But once more, his aspirations do not meet his capabilities-- Moon looks outstanding, but her apocalyptic mutterings sound more silly than spectral, particularly when she's forced to play opposite a huge pale horse(insert heavy-handed Biblical images right here ). Many fans will find these minutes more laborious than influenced, and a diversion from the murders, which keep Zombie's preference for trouble. He succeeds in this department, but if the end result is a menu of ugly killings, the point of revamping the Halloween franchise is rather moot, because the threadbare follow-ups to the Carpenter original currently achieved that goal. Zombie's propensity for unique casting stays his most inspired skill: Haddonfield is filled with cult icons like Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Margot Kidder, and Daniel Roebuck, who jostle for area with rough-hewn character gamers like Duane Whitaker, Mark Boone Junior, and Dayton Callie(Deadwood)and left-field cameos by Howard Hesseman and "Weird Al "Yankovic.-- Paul Gaita
