If there is one thing most entertainment artists don’t really want you to know, it’s that they have feelings and they, without exception, do actually hear what gets said about them on the internet. Undoubtedly Rob Zombie felt a little bit of heat when his last trailer for Halloween 2 wasn’t all that well accepted. It strongly played up the ghosts of Meyers’ mother and showed predominantly hospital footage. Early word on the film was that it picked up immediately after the first film, though it looks as though that’s only partially true.
Check out the new, improved, and far better trailer for Halloween 2 below. Take note that much of footage takes place outside of a hospital, distancing itself from the original Halloween sequel, which took place immediately after the original and featured Laurie Strode being stalked through a hospital after her injuries in the first one. As you can see here, this film also jumps forward two years to a future Halloween where Meyers comes back to get his stab on. So, from what we can see, the movie probably starts in the hospital, Meyers gets ‘dead’ again, escapes, then returns 2 years later to finish the job. I’ve expressed my discontent with the poster and the previous trailer but I’ll admit to this one looking righteous.
What do you think of this new trailer?
