Product Description

Amazon.ca

"You can't kill the boogeyman," explains John Carpenter in Halloween, and to prove it he brings Michael Myers back in this handsome but grisly sequel. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode but spends most of her time cowering in a hospital gown, and Donald Pleasence runs around like a maniac as the panicky doctor desperate to hunt down Myers before he kills again. Carpenter writes and produces with partner Debra Hill, and together they replace the mystery and uncertainty of the original with an exponentially bigger body count and some strange tales about the Druids and pagan ceremonies, and the now-familiar family ties between Michael and Laurie. First-time director Rick Rosenthal (Bad Boys) paces the film at a brisk jog and directs it with a clean, crisp style, taking the murders out of the dark to display them in all their nasty detail. --Sean Axmaker

"Halloween 2" is best describe of something of a failed sequel that tries very hard to live up to John Carpenter's 1978 movie. Since Carpenter and Producer/Co-Writer:The late Debra Hill (The Dead Zone, Escape From New York, The Fisher King) tried to do something different that almost works. Is this a bad sequel? No, it is just a very underrated and underwritten sequel.

The highpoints of this movie is actually Michael Myers played by Stuntman and Sometimes actor:Dick Warlock, who is terrific as Michael Myers. Warlock plays Myers very straightforward, scary and meancing. Myers' character even has some dark touches of humour before he kills a character from the movie. Dean Cundey's (Psycho 2, Jurassic Park, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) excellent Widescreen cinematography is a plus. I like the hospital setting, which hospitals can be a scary place. Also Carpenter and Hill continue the story on the same night from the first one. Which it makes an interesting double feature. I also liked Lance Guest (The Last Starfighter, Jaws The Revenge "!") character, the only new character in this sequel is likeable. Leo Rossi (The Accused, Renlentless) is amusing as a sleazy paramedic driver, who is the comic relief in the feature.

The downside:The late Donald Pleasence is always fun to watch him play Dr. Loomis but he is way over the top at times. Try to keep a stright face, when he tells Sheriff Brackett (Charles Cyphers) that he shot Michael Myers six times! His character is a little stranger than usual, especially with his speech about Samhain. The most oddest moment in this picture. Jamie Lee Curtis' character Laurie Strode doesn't do much and she is not seen much until the third act, where her character and the movie finally comes alive.

*Updated review on the Extras* (February 27, 2013)

This review concerns Shout! Factory's new Collector's Edition release of Halloween II, it is not a review of the film itself. But, in the interests of transparency, I do like this film.

The Blu-Ray transfer looks and sounds absolutely stunning. The film looks better than I have ever seen before (TV, VHS and DVD). I read that Shout! did a major upgrade in transferring the film to Blu-Ray and it shows.

In addition to the great transfer, Shout! must be commended on the stellar and abundant extras included in the 2-disc set:

PLEASE NOTE: I have not been able to view all the extras yet, but will add to the review as I do.

1. Television Cut With Added Footage Not Seen In The Theatrical Version

This comes on the second disc (DVD, not Blu-Ray) in the set. OK, watched the TV version now and it's enjoyable, especially seeing the way they re-cut and/or edit scenes, to fit TV censors and time constraints. In addition, there are different (albeit short) scenes that are used to bridge moments in the TV cut that are not seen at all in the original version. Overall, an interesting view and definitely a worthwhile extra.

2. Audio Commentary With Director Rick Rosenthal And Actor Leo Rossi (Theatrical Version)

3. Audio Commentary With Actor/Stunt Coordinator Dick Warlock (Theatrical Version)

I haven't had a chance to listen to the commentaries yet, but I have heard they are very interesting and informative, can't wait!

4. The Nightmare Isn't Over!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not A Bad Little Sequel... July 12 2003
Format:DVD
OK, later on that same halloween night in Haddonfield, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is whisked away to the hospital, only to be stalked by her demonic shadow, Michael Myers. Laurie is her old quivering, yet resourceful self. Michael is the unstoppable dreadnaut of death. Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) is still raving about Michael and stalking the evil stalker. The hospital setting is cool and adds to the claustrophobic feel of the movie. I love Laurie and Michael's "relationship". She's the magnet and he's the murderous iron shaving. They are drawn together by forces beyond them both, as the perfect killer / victim. I recommend Halloween 2, especially for it's excellent chase sequence between Laurie and Michael. Watch H2 as a double feature w/ the original...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the orginal but underatted. June 29 2004
By Drums
Format:DVD
Halloween 2 is an awsome horror film that's really scary, it has some great jumps and some suspense, but isn't much compared to the orginal.
Everone has always said this film isn't nearly as good as the orginal, that's true in every way shape or form, but if you think about it most films aren't as good as halloween, Halloween 2 is one of the best 80's slashers packed with scares and fun, it was also awsome how they pick up right at the point that Halloween left off, a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true John Carpenter scare. June 1 2014
By mirabel
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all the Halloween movies but I think this second one was necessary to know what happened to the Laurie Strode character.To go from H1 to H4 confuses you because it's several years later.I would like to add my thoughts to the great Donald Pleasant who is missed. M.Marr

3.0 out of 5 stars Forced sequel
John Carpenter and Debra Hill were 'forced' in to making Halloween 2 in order to recoupe their losses (due to legal ramblings) from Part 1.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scariest Halloween film!
Although Halloween 2 isn't as *good* a film as the first, and isn't as well made or didn't even have as much thought put into it, it's scarier than the first and more entertaining. Read more
