We’re less than a week away from the release of Halloween II, Rob Zombie’s follow-up to his 2007 reimagining/remake of the Michael Myers saga. While some loved Zombie’s take on the John Carpenter classic, it seems like most were downright disappointed. Personally, the first time I saw Halloween in the theater I really dug it, but watching the extended director’s cut last year I too was let down. There are many moments of coolness throughout, but the film didn’t hold up for a repeat viewing (you can get more on that here).
Halloween II looks like Zombie’s taken the gloves off. It’s neither a remake or homage to the original sequel, which is a good thing. We’ll find out this Friday. In the meantime, check out the trailer for Halloween II below.
