Halloween II (2009)

Director: Rob Zombie. Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Brad Dourif. 119 min. Unrated. Horror.

Raw brutal violence. Rob Zombie knows the terrain, and has the skill to disturb the viewer. He doesn't create Friday the 13th-like farcical violence, and doesn't joke around with it like Tarantino. Every scene angle and lighting aspect skillfully contributes to the agenda. He plans it as repulsive as possible, and succeeds. So regardless of morality in movies, he deserves credit, as even I who consider myself desensitized to such brutality on film (not in real life), had difficulty stomaching it. If Zombie's purpose is to show how sickeningly self-gratuitous violence has become, he certainly makes a point here.
