I saw it Saturday. It was pretty bad.

I've been meaning to see it. Funny how The Final Destination In 3-D tops Halloween II and then the following Monday, Halloween 3D is announced.

Fine by me, if Rob Zombie's not involved again.

I have no idea where the next writer/director will take it, though. I'd almost prefer another reboot at this point.

It was awful. It was just a bunch of pointless, rehashed murder scenes. I think Rob Zombie, sabotaged this movie on purpose, since he never really wanted to do this movie.

I forgot about this movie... probably because it's August.

Yeah. The first one was dire, and this one was just plain bad.

It amuses me, though, that between the original ending of Zombie's Halloween, and the ending of this one,

Re: Rob Zombie's Halloween II Discuss/Grade Thread

Well I finally saw it and I have to admit that I think it's the worst film I've seen this summer (and that includes Transformers 2 and even the Asylum's Terminator ripoff).



That was pretty much the only thing that didn't make me give it a Poor instead of Below Average. It was probably thought of as being an amazing idea for her to do what she did and descend like she did, but Halloween fans had already been exposed to that possibility.

So much potential. Interesting that they've greenlit Halloween 3-D...

I gots some rants, but I don't feel like spoiler coding a huge paragraph.

Anyone mind if we get spoilery yet?

I don't mind. I hated the damn movie. It'd be cathartic to read why someone else hated it.

I'd love to hear more of what you have to say, Spiff. I haven't seen it yet, but don't really plan on it until the video release. But spoilers on this one don't bother me at all. What did you think of the first one, just for a frame of reference?

I couldn't believe it when at the end of the movie, Laurie looked into the camera (or...our souls, perhaps?) and said "And now....it's the season of the witch!!"

So fucking spooky.
