I believe it's in the Horror Script thread --

I tend to think that somewhere up in heaven there exists a Screenwriting God, and in His benevolent wisdom, He chose to spare us, the screenplay collecting masses, the cancerous horror of what must surely be one of the worst film screenplays ever written. I mean I dig Rob Zombie for the most part, but that movie su-u-u-u-u-cked!

The director's cut is really good. I only just this year got around to watching it after only seeing the theatrical when it first hit VOD nine years ago.

The way RZ portrayed the characters was really well done this time around. His first Halloween was so so, but this one actually worked.

I’m with bob here where I thought this was terrible but I’ve heard from many over the years that I should revisit it

Seems to be getting a following

I’m not against giving it another shot

I haven't seen the theatrical cut, which I've heard is the better of the two. But the director's cut had some intense sequences.

Holy hell, what a mess of a movie. Zombie's first Halloween was decent enough for what it was (despite somehow managing to make Michael Myers less scary), but H2 was offensively bad.

That's fun because for me Zombie's Halloween is the only one where you can feel how scary and unstoppable Michael is. Compare to this new semi-sequel whuck looks like it's fanfic (and it is), and Carpenter' dull original where any kind of empathy comes in game only with third act.
