Halloween II (2009)




I barely recovered from the onslaught of Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007) when the sequel hit theaters.  The first twenty minutes was sort of a nice ode to the original Halloween II (1981), however I soon needed an IV to revive me from the horror that remained.  Not since Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) did I want a character to be killed so badly.  I found Zombie's Laurie Strode irritating as hell in the first movie and couldn't stomach the psychological mess she was in the sequel.  Since I'm a completist and will eventually get to Halloween: Resurrection (2002), Zombie's first effort and the 2018 film, I visited the locations anyway.  So for those that are fans, enjoy.  Thanks to Robert Patterson at Set-jetter.com for tracking down these locations.
