Halloween II Review

Picking up at the same moment part one ended, this sequel follows Michael’s trail of bodies to the hospital where Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) was taken. This sequel by Carpenter and Hill seems to repeat the first, with Michael dispatching nurses this time instead of teens, and Loomis (Donald Pleasance) always two steps behind him. However, this movie spawned a slew of immitations about slashers in hospitals. Still, this is very much worth seeing, as the shocks haven’t become entirely predictable this early in the series.
