"We're done waiting. Only a river of blood can bring us back together. It's up to you. It's always been up to you, Michael."
— Deborah Myers.
The sequel to Halloween (2007), which is also directed by Rob Zombie. It's the tenth film overall in the long-running Halloween franchise.Two years has passed since the lethal Halloween night where Laurie Strode managed to shoot Michael Myers and he disappeared. She is now trying her best to get over the experience. Dr. Loomis has managed to turn the ordeal into a success as a writer, with a new book coming up. Michael himself is still alive, and is coaxed by visions of his mother to return to Haddonfield and meet with Laurie once again.
Fan Disservice: ...before she winds up hysterical and covered in blood.
Fingore: Laurie's operation in the opening shows her broken fingernails being removed.
Freak Out: Laurie's freakout at the end of the remake is explored further, as she is depicted as an embittered, psychological wreck that is further destabilized not only by the return of her accursed tormentor, but also a traumatizing revelation about her past.
Gross-Up Close-Up: We're treated to close views of Laurie having her head sewn shut, a man's face after he's mutilated by a crash, a guy having his head sawn off with broken glass, Big Lou Martini getting his arm snapped...
Hallucinations: Michael Myers has hallucinations about his mother...and some rather random things, including pumpkin-headed aristocrats and white unicorns.
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: The daughter of one of the rednecks who beat down Michael for trespassing pleads with them to leave him alone, and at least apologizes when they leave him for dead. Dead just the same.
Off with His Head!: The necrophiliac ambulance passenger has his head sliced off with a glass shard.
Police Are Useless: Sheriff Brackett asks Andy, one of his deputies, to protect Annie. To say he fails horribly shouldn't come as a shock.
Soft Glass: When running away from Michael, Laurie comes across a fire axe in its container. Failing to break the glass, she continues running. Then Michael finds it, breaks the glass with his fist, and moves on.
Michael stabs a nurse in the back. And then does it again. And again, and again, until after about an entire minute filled with stabbings, he rams the knife into her skull and leaves it stuck there.
There's also the cops shooting at Michael so many times that he could have been dead from the first few bullets alone, though considering how he survived a shot to the head, they might as well play it safe.
Time Skip: There's a two year timeskip after the opening.
What the Hell, Hero?: One of the parents of the victims of Michael goes up to Loomis and calls him out for "creating" Michael.
You Look Familiar: The actor who gets stomped to death behind the strip club later turns up as the green-faced host of the big Halloween party.
Which itself becomes funny when Bill Moseley, the original actor, dropped out from playing the role. The reason why its funny is because he had a victim role in the reshot scenes of the 2007 remake, appearing in the theatrical cut of the film.
