Because you demanded it! I could rant on with unfettered snark again about the atavistic loathing of Rob Zombie's Halloween series (Rotten Tomatoes has the second one at 21%), but that's a bit tired, no? As I mentioned before, I enjoyed the first one, but haven't yet had a chance to dive into the sequel, which most people have branded as excrement. Like old Mike Myers himself, it just won't go away. It's what we're saddled with, so eat it, like it, and get ready for a third helping.

For those of you new to horror, Halloween II tells of the tale of an emo hobo named Michael who has a serious mad-on for his family, particularly his sister, Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton). He returns to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, and gets all stabby.

Having not seen the film itself, I dodged this ending. I want to remain untainted by anything that will sully my experience of a textured and rich horror film. The DVD/Blu Ray hits the market on January 12, so I'll probably take a gander at it then.

Check out the new ending after the jump! Would it have helped the film at all if this had been what they went with?
