This movie isn’t quite as good as the original, but it’s not off by a lot.  Sure that hospital is too empty for words and Laurie can’t possibly get out a scream when she really needs to, but realism is for suckers sometimes.  And it’s only one category in a list of categories that me and DJ appreciate.

On a good note, the music is back, The Pleas is back (that crazy Dr. Loomis!!) and all the terror’s back, too.  We don’t know how The Pleas survives this film, but he is back for the 4th one as well.

You also gotta love the fact that Laurie acts like she’s never shot a gun before and then shoots Michael right in both of his eyes.  Two really lucky shots, I guess.

DJ gives it an 84/100.  I give it an 89.

“I shot him 6 times! I shot him in the heart-but… HE’S NOT HUMAN!”                  -The Pleas

About TaraRomero

I love 28 Days Later and insist that they are zombies. Infected zombies, but zombies. It's not like they're coming back, are they? No. I also have a strange obsession with Brainscan because I have a stranger obsession with Edward Furlong (mostly pre-drugged up Edward - bless his heart, I've met him and he's lovely and I'll love him till I die). Besides horror I'm addicted to writing about everything I see and think and feel. Also, I read a lot and watch too many game shows. Currently reading Poe and watching Idiotest.
