It's a little sad to witness a fall from greatness, and that's what we get in Halloween II.

Halloween is a classic and its first sequel is a sloppy afterthought.

It's a little cheap to have a sequel that merely completes the story you SHOULD have told in Part 1, but as sequels go, this one's not bad.

Does the worst thing any sequel can ever do: it retroactively taints the original and makes it less interesting.

Really misses the point of the first film by dropping pretty much all the pretense of build-up and fate...

This uninspired version amounts to lukewarm sloppy seconds in comparison to the original film that made director John Carpenter a hot property.

Absolutely awful, with no trace of the original's terror.

A senseless remake; a series that should have stopped after the first movie.

The script is fairly routine and Jamie Lee Curtis has too little to do this time around, but the hospital setting proves to be a sound choice for a locale.
