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

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.

Halloween II isn't a knockout sequel, but it's a solid, if slightly slow, follow-up to the original horror classic.

It's a rather solid sequel that carries on the legacy of its predecessor well and always delivered the scares for me as a kid.

Any childhood favorite that is still a good deal of fun today is a movie worthy of some note.

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

Rick Rosenthal, who directed this 1981 sequel, doesn't have Carpenter's expansive, affectionate way with stereotypical characters, and without it they're empty shells -- bodies waiting for the slaughter.
August 27, 2007
A bad sequel to a good movie.
August 27, 2007
Debra Hill and John Carpenter produced and wrote the screenplay, but this film is still a totally unnecessary and extremely poor sequel to the original.

August 27, 2007
This uninspired version amounts to lukewarm sloppy seconds in comparison to the original film that made director John Carpenter a hot property.
February 9, 2006
The result won't make any converts, but Jamie Lee Curtis is as good as ever.
October 21, 2005
This kill-happy sequel is a lot bloodier than needed, but it's still pretty frightening nevertheless.

Substandard sequel.

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

Halloween II is good enough to deserve a sequel of its own.

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.

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

...Michael Myers has been drained of some of his punch...
