H2: Halloween II

Critics Consensus

Zombie shows flashes of vision in the follow-up to his Halloween reboot, but they're smothered by mountains of gore and hackneyed, brutal violence.

Movie Info

Filmmaker Rob Zombie returns to Haddonfield for this Dimension Films sequel that finds the murderous psychopath Michael Myers (once again played by Tyler Mane) out on the loose again. The film picks up where the last one left off. Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) survives an attack by her mental-patient brother, Michael Myers, whom she doesn't know is related to her. On the way to the morgue, the ambulance carrying Michael crashes and, miraculously, the killer survives and heads out into the countryside, his body never recovered by the authorities. In the meantime, the madman's doctor, Samuel Loomis (Malcolm McDowell), has turned into a media whore on the cusp of superstardom with the release of his exposé on the horrific happenings presented in the previous film. As time ticks down to Halloween night, Michael, now living in a barn and urged on by the spirit of his dead mother and his younger self, is driven to seek out his sister once again.

Audience Reviews for H2: Halloween II

  • Oct 28, 2018
    Retroactively makes Zombie's first Halloween better (especially if you're watching the director's cut of this one) as it becomes clear that what really interests him is trauma. Yes the violence is grotesque and the performances are often too over the top, but it all keeps circling back to a real exploration of grief at it's most brutal.

    Typical slasher film, Lots of Blood and kills but the story was so boring and the ending was just stupid, Michael Myers has always been the one slasher villain I found very boring and this film has done nothing to change that thanks to a very overrated Rob Zombie as director.

    While it is nice that Zombie didn't continue to follow the old sequel to create his sequel, this film is just a disappointing follow-up to his first Halloween. If you are a die hard horror fan, you probably will still check it out but don't expect to be impressed.

    Rob Zombie's sequel to his 2007 remake of Halloween is by far the worst film in the series. Michael Myers is haunted by his mother and a unicorn. Dr. Loomis, who tried to help Myers in the previous film, is a conceited jerk who wants to make money off of the Michael Myers phenomenon. Laurie Strode discovers surprisingly late that Myers is her brother, even though the viewer already knows that in the first film. Myers is back to kill his sister Laurie here, this movie therefore echoing the original Halloween sequel. But whereas the original sequel benefitted from revealing to us that Laurie was his sister, we already know that by this film. Anything else this film might have added did not make the film better. Like Myers being haunted by his mother and a unicorn, for example. This is a film that is not worth seeing.
