Product Description

John Carpenter's Halloween scared the living daylights out of 25 million people and set a precedent in smashing box office records for a horror film. But the nightmare is just beginning... Picking up precisely where its predecessor left off, Halloween II follows the same ill-fated characters as they encounter the knife-wielding maniac they left for dead in the first Halloween. It seems the inhuman Michael Myers is still very much alive and out for more revenge as he stalks the deserted halls of the hospital where his sister lays waiting. As he gets closer and closer to his terrified target, Dr. Loomis discovers the chilling mystery behind the crazed psychopath's savage actions. Written by horror masters John Carpenter and Debra Hill, Halloween II is a spine-tingling dark ride into the scariest night of the year.


"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

    If you liked the first film, I suggest getting this one, but don't get any of the other sequels.
    Mark W. Lindeman
    Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis are still a great team as they attempt to defeat Michael Myers.
    Jeff Perkins (jfpshowstopper@hotmail.com)
    This is one of my favorite horror sequels of all time and to me is the best in the Halloween series.

    In putting together this sequel, the powers-that-be decided to combine several of the strongest elements from the original film(Michael Myers, Dr. Loomis, the strong Halloween atmosphere)with the standard pace of an early 80's slasher film(people getting killed every 5-10 minutes.) For me, this is the ideal combination. There has not been a slasher movie since that I have liked more than this one.

    Dr. Loomis is my favorite horror hero, and Michael Myers my favorite horror villain. They both enjoy some of their finest moments in this installment. I find this version of Myers creepier than the later incarnations, where he has suddenly grown into something resembling an nfl lineman. There is something in the deliberate movements, and the angular figure, that is decidedly inhuman.

    And Dr. Loomis elevates all of this to a far higher level than it could ever have achieved otherwise.His strength,courage, and iron will make him a hero. So does his moral anguish over seeing innocent people butchered. But there is also something in his personality that makes him the ideal adversary for the Bogeyman.Of course, as a psychiatrist, he feels professional responsibility. But it goes well beyond that. There is some part of his imagination that is obsessed with Myers, and some part of his humanity that is appalled by him. These feelings, taken in concert with his naturally heroic nature, make him the perfect combatant for Myers.

    Donald Pleasance was perfect as Loomis, and this may have been his strongest performance. He simply commands the screen. This is, for my money, the greatest performance in the history of horror films. He combines incomparable screen presense with an unforgettable delivery. Imagine some of his lines in the hands of a more pedestrian actor.

    This isn't just an ordinary re-release, it's a fan's dream come true! You might say, it out does Universal's 30th AE (sort of, read on)! What's it include? Well:

    Audio commentary with director Rick Rosenthal
    Audio commentary with stunt co-ordinator/actor Dick Warlock
    The Nightmare Isn't Over - The Making Of Halloween II, featuring Rick Rosenthal, Lance Guest, Dick Warlock, Alan Howarth, Dean Cundey and more..
    Horror's Hallowed Grounds: Revisiting the original shooting locations
    Still Gallery
    Theatrical Trailer, TV and Radio Spots

    And for the Coup De Grace, a second disc contaning the famed TV Cut with additional/alternate footage (although the R-Rated material is edited out). The TV cut will be on a DVD disc for both format releases.

    Now don't start getting rid of your 30th AE just yet! Although the CE is pretty awesome and includes the Deleted (TV) Scene and Alternate Ending via the TV Cut, it misses out on the movie documentary Terror In The Aisles, so you're gonna want to hold on to it. And for those who still own the original Universal (or Goodtimes) DVD, the CE will be available on DVD too so you can put throw the old disc(s) in the trash! Make no mistake, the CE of Halloween II is the second Blu-ray release of the film you'll need and the only Halloween II DVD release you'll ever need!

    I have seen this film in excess of 300 times-perhaps 400-by now. I mention that for one reason..........namely, that you simply cannot watch something that many times unless you really enjoy the process of watching it. For instance, once you've seen something a half dozen times or so, all pretense of suspense is lost. There is no longer any suspense, because you know exactly what is going to happen. You're not waiting to see how it ends, because you know how it ends. Eventually, you know how each and every SCENE ends.

    I reached that point, and surpassed it.........and yet I still kept watching it. For one reason........

    Just about EVERY SINGLE SCENE in Halloween 2 is either perfect, or at least very, very good. This is the key. When I watch this, I will sometimes skip the scene where the ambulance driver plays the little prank on his lady friend. Not always, but sometimes.And that's it. There is not another moment in Halloween 2 that I find extraneous, even as many times as I have sat through it.No matter how often I've seen it, I never tire of it. And this holds true for virtually each and every moment in the film.

    From the crucial scenes, right down to those that appear trivial, and everything in between...........they just got it right.

    I have always felt that this was Donald Pleasence's finest performance as Loomis. He simply commands the screen. There is noone like him. This is also one of the most effective incarnations of Michael Myers. His posture, and mannerisms, are so rigid, so unnatural.........he comes across as the very literal embodiment of Death, itself.(notice that bizarre little pivot he does when he turns to spy on that girl through her window.)Decidedly inhuman.

    There are just so many great moments in this film.

    Format: DVD
    Halloween 2 is a solid sequel to the 1978 horror classic Halloween directed by horror legend John Carpenter. Some sequels of the horror genre especially during the 80's failed desperatley compared to the epic original as we saw with the The Excorcist 2, but that is not the case here.

    Even though Halloween 2 wasn't released till 1981; 3 years after the original this movie is supposed to be a continuation of the 1st. It takes place later on the same night as the original. Babysitter, Laurie Strode ( Jamie Lee Curtis ) is rushed to the hospital and treated for the injuries she recieved in her first encounter with Micheal.

    Micheal, who mysteriously dissapeared after being shot off the balcony by Dr. Loomis ( Donald Pleasence ) continues after Laurie tracing her to the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital and doing a few classic Halloween style stalk and slash routines along the way with the now even more obsessed Dr. Loomis trying to track him down.

    Halloween 2 uses the slow building tension and suspense from the first film, and adds in the gore, blood, and unique more explicite kills that the first movie lacked. It also reveals the back story of Micheal being Laurie's brother which was a good, well explained twist for the movie. Also, the large seemingly empty hospital filled with unsuspecting nurses and poor traumatized Laurie teamed with the original bone chilling music from the first adds to the movie's suspense and chill factor. Jamie Lee Curtis delivers another excellent performance proving that she can do more than just scream and run in the numerous first rate and nail biting chase scenes this movie provides but that she can also act, alot better than most other actresses of the 80's slasher genre.

    The movie is well paced and well directed by Rick Rosenthal..good from beginning to end, and in the shadow of a legend a worthy sequel and an all around good slasher flick.
