Yes, it has really been a decade since Rob Zombie released Halloween 2 – his sequel to his own reimagining of the John Carpenter classic.
The movie, follows directly on from the events in Halloween as Myers escapes from the back of a mortuary van to once again terrorize his baby sister Laurie Strode (played by Scout-Taylor Compton). As well as returning appearances from Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Tyler Mane and Brad Dourif, the movie features a “dream sequence” where Myers hunts down Strode in hospital, and guts Nurse Davis, played by (future) Oscar Winner Octavia Spencer. Spencer looked back at the bloody kill in an SNL skit back in 2017; “Yeah, she got stabbed bad,” joked the actress.
Also, this was the first time actor Richard Brake featured in a Rob Zombie movie playing one of the ill-fated ambulance drivers at the beginning of the film. Brake has gone on to star in Rob Zombie’s 31 and the forthcoming 3 From Hell.
Speaking to fans about the anniversary Rob Zombie said: “Can’t believe that Halloween 2 is already 10 years old. Time flies when you’re killing folks.”
