Halloween II Reviews

August 27, 2007
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.

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

The result won't make any converts, but Jamie Lee Curtis is as good as ever.

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