Product Description

Product Description

Halloween Ii

"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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The second chapter in the never-ending series starts off where the first film left off. After her near fatal encounter with the ever powerful Michael Myer's, a wounded Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is taken to Haddonfield Memorial hospital where she is stitched up and heavily sedated. The relentless Myers, upon discovering her location, decides to pay the unsuspecting Laurie a visit while continuing his bloody reign of terror on Halloween night.

The original "Halloween" is an undisputed classic and one of my favorite movies of all times - across all genres. The sequels on the other hand are not as enduring but remain entertaining if you’re in the mood for an atmospheric and generic slasher movie; although they do range in quality with the worst being “Halloween VI – The Curse of Michael Myers” and “Halloween - Resurrection”. "Halloween II" in my opinion, is the best out of the sequels and also one of the grisliest without over-doing it. The original used suspense to terrorize its audience, "Halloween II" goes straight for the jugular. Although it's not really gory, some of the deaths are gruesome. Myer’s get’s really creative here using not only his knife but hammers and syringes as well. One disgusting highlight involves a beautiful young nurse sans clothing and a scalding hot bath-tub. You try doing the math.

One of the problems I had with this film was with the unbelievably vacant and dark hospital setting. I am sure "Haddonfield Memorial” is a wonderful place but it is a hospital I would never want to be taken to. Although the nurses are all young and extremely attractive, the place is eerily desolate. There are about 5 nurses on duty in the entire building and despite having a maternity ward filled with newborns, there really is no one around to attend to them.

"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.

Halloween 2 for me nailed the formula right again..Yes the gore was a lot more evident and it was a bit less scary but there were very subtle things in this movie that made the storyline come together..We find out that Laurie is Michael's sister, Michael breaking into the school and writing "Samhain" on the board or desk, and the scenes in downtown Haddonfield are great where you don't see Michael but you see people walking around Haddonfield on Halloween night thru his eyes, not thinking anything of him because it's Halloween, the news reports are great and the little cut in of Night of Living Dead is cool as well..I highly recommend this as part of any horror movie weekend marathon you might have planned...

Halloween 2 was written again by john carpenter and debra hill, but this time directed by rick rosenthal (who in the future will direct the crappy halloween resurrection), the story is so original, and so decent, it starts just when the first one left us off...laurie strode is in haddonfield hospital under care of jimmy, and a few nurses...but michael myers is still alive and he goes to the hospital to try to kill his sister again...but dr.loomis could stop him...before he got finally his sister...
I love the movie it's so excelent and original!!! i think that is better than the first one but just for a little!!! great!!! the dvd is not very good...but...the movie is great!!
the extras includes..."production notes", "trailers", "filmographies", "subtitles", etc...
ACTING: 4.5/5
GORE: 4.8/5
DVD: 3/5
