Musician-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie put his own twists on John Carpenter's original thriller, and he kept it up with this gruesome remake of the first sequel. He stays fairly close to the premise of the first version, since babysitter Laurie (Scout Taylor-Compton) is in the hospital, recuperating from the initial attack by lethal Michael Myers (Tyler Mane).
Malcolm McDowell returns as the psychiatrist on Michael's case. DVD extras: audio commentary by Zombie; deleted and alternate scenes; outtakes; audition and makeup-test footage; music videos. ** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
