Danielle Harris (who plays Annie Brackett) was the object of Michael Myers' obsession in the original Halloween series. She played his niece, Jaime Lloyd, in Halloween 4 (1988) and Halloween 5 (1989). See more »
When Laurie and Mya find Annie near death upstairs, Laurie tells Mya to go and call the police. Mya agrees, and slowly walks off screen, as Laurie turns away. The next shot shows Mya sprinting from that spot, with Laurie completely out of sight, not even standing in the door frame. But in the shot after, Laurie is clearly standing in the door frame, which was completely visible in the previous shot. See more »
I thought this film was good, despite all the negative reviews I've found.
The "Halloween" franchise has always been about insane indestructible Michael Myers hunting down Laurie Strode. In this movie, precisely that happens. Expectations fulfilled.
But in this movie, Rob Zombie creates a world of carnivalesque violence. He also creates (in my opinion) a believable character in Laurie Strode, if not a likable one. Following the events of the first film, Laurie now suffers nightmares and crippling anxiety attacks.
YES there are some clichés but on the whole, I found this film to be a great slasher flick with the unique atmosphere of insanity that Rob Zombie creates. I think it is very telling that the girls are dressed up as Rocky Horror characters for the second half of the film.
In conclusion: this is one of the best horror sequels I've ever seen.
