Halloween II: 2-Disc Collector's Edition

digitalbits.com
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I discussed Universal’s Halloween II Blu-ray last year, so check out that review for my thoughts on the movie itself. The Scream Factory release corrects the mistakes of Universal’s disc, including the altered “Moustapha Akkad Presents” credit. The movie’s been given a new transfer that’s slightly more pleasing than Universal’s effort.

Halloween II: Collector's Edition

High-Def Digest
30 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Although not quite the equal of its predecessor, 'Halloween II' still offers an entertaining follow-up for a fun, spooky night. Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance return for more of the night HE came home, picking up a few moments after the conclusion of the first movie. Rick Rosenthal made his feature-length debut with this sequel, oozing with the same thematic tone and style meant to serve as a direct extension of Carpenter seminal slasher classic.

  • Excerpt: De film vervolgt na de gebeurtenissen van de eerste Halloween reboot door Rob Zombie. Laurie Strode heeft een kogel in Michael Myers’ hoofd geschoten en wordt compleet gevonden door sheriff Brackett terwijl ze compleet in shock over straat wandelt. Brackett brengt haar en de andere overlevenden (inclusief zijn dochter Annie en dr. Loomis) naar het ziekenhuis terwijl Michael door hulpverleners naar de begrafenisondernemer gebracht wordt.

Halloween II (2009)

Rock! Shock! Pop!
26 December 2010
  • Summary: Halloween II is a better film than Zombie’s first attempt at reimaging the Michael Myers mythos but it’s still got some pretty serious problems. It improves on the first film in certain ways, but doesn’t really correct enough to save it. That said, Sony’s disc looks pretty good and sounds incredible and includes some decent high definition extras features as well. Those who enjoyed the movie will want to see it on Blu-ray, as overall this is quite a nice package.

Halloween II (2009)

High-Def Digest
19 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Rob Zombie's 'Halloween II' is infused with some of his signature style, but that still doesn't wash away the awfulness. The movie isn't scary, is far too long, and tediously meanders all over the place. This Blu-ray release is pretty decent, however, with adequate video faithful to Zombie's vision and solid lossless audio, along with a fair chunk of supplements -- the highlight of which being a commentary that is far more engaging than the film itself.

Halloween II (2009) Review

DoBlu
13 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The opening to Halloween II is a typical slasher movie chase. After a brief reminder of previous events, we are back in Haddonfield where Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) is being rundown by Michael Myers. Shockingly, or maybe not, he didn’t die in the first movie per genre rules. The explanation for his survival is apparent.

In 2007, musician-turned-writer/director Rob Zombie got all of his remake issues out of the way with his original remake of Halloween , meaning we were finally promised that his 2009 sequel, Halloween...

Halloween II Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
24 December 2009
  • Summary: Freaks will always find their way home. Director Rob Zombie has injected his Horror sequel Halloween II with plenty of gruesome kills and an unforgiving atmosphere that's enough to send chills down any hardcore Horror aficionado's spine, the film one of the most visually brutal yet wonderfully effective genre pictures in recent memory.

Halloween II

Cinema Blend
28 August 2009
  • Excerpt: When you’re rebooting a film franchise you obviously run the risk of not pleasing the fans. Disappointment is one thing, but the absolute disgust I felt after seeing Rob Zombie’s Halloween II is inexcusable. At one point in the film, a character is accused of “profiteering off the miseries of others” and that is exactly what Zombie will do to you if you see this movie.

Halloween II

AV Club
28 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Let’s float a notion: Rob Zombie is the greatest horror-movie director never to make a great movie. Zombie has a gift for horrifically beautiful compositions and a feel for atmosphere and character, letting quirks and background details suggest history and depth. He speaks the language of classic horror films, but his taste for the extreme puts him at home in an era in which Saw sequels have become institutions. And yet it rarely all comes together.
