|A year has passed since Michael Myers (Tyler Mane "Halloween") escaped from Smithís Grove Sanitarium and embarked on a murderous rampage through the town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night. With the anniversary of the tragedy approaching, survivor Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton "An American Crime") is still traumatized after last year's climactic encounter with Michael, and she is plagued by nightmares that seem to foreshadow his deadly return.
Laurieís therapist and friends dismiss her anxiety as the inevitable by-product of the trauma she experienced, insisting that Michael is dead while ignoring the unpleasant reality that his body was never found. And it appears that Laurie could be on to something. Far from deceased, Michaelís been lying low in the days since Laurie put an end to his grisly escapade, quietly convalescing in the place where most folks suffering from multiple gunshot wounds go to recover: a ramshackle wooden shack in the middle of a sparsely-populated rural area.
Not that heís been alone. Bathed in angelic white garments and accompanied by an alabaster horse, Michaelís mother Deborah (Sheri Moon Zombie "Grindhouse") has been paying regular visits to her son from beyond the grave, appearing in visions to provide guidance to her deranged offspring. According to his nutty imaginary mum, Michaelís tortured psyche will never be at peace until heís reunited with his baby sister Laurie. And so Michael returns to Haddonfield for another attempt at a family reunion, slicing to ribbons anyone stupid enough to cross his path.
In a funny cameo, recording legend Weird Al Yankovic makes a guest appearance on a talk show in which Doctor Loomis (Malcolm McDowell "I Spy") is there to sell his latest book He belittles the doctor with verbal jabs until the doctor stomps off, enraged. But this basically repellant hardcore slasher movie directed as in #1 by Rob Zombie, is even more disappointing than most.
