Halloween II (1981)

5 / 5
Tagline: More of the night he came home
Directed by: Rick Rosenthal
Written by: John Carpenter, Debra Hill
Actors include: Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasence, Charles Cyphers
Genre: Horror
Length: 92 minutes

Country: USA

This was one heck of a lot more fun than I was expecting. It picks up right after the last one, as in same night Jamie Lee Curtis still injured and Mr. Meyers is still on the loose of course. The film is pretty much one giant chase scene with plenty of bloody murders in it. If you think the first one lacked action then this one will really satisfy. It's perhaps not as artful and classic seeming as the first one but this one should definitely appeal more to certain folks. I think it was a great idea to finish off the loose ends from the first film and well this was as impressive as it possibly could have been so definitely recommended. I actually like it better than the original!
