Not exactly the best follow up, but good! 3 The only problem I have with is that he walks like a robot in this one. Why is he so stiff? But that was a grea replacement mask they gave him! It looks almost exactly like the part one mask!
I actually do like this more than I thought I did. It had a really great feel to it. Nothing like part 1, but still had a nice 80's feel to it.
The kills were great and the girls looked pretty good for the most part... I think well the blonde nurse did lol
Anyway, Loomis did seem to have a hard time talk at the end though, when he was telling Laurie things. Like when he told her to get out of the room before he blew it up. He kinda just mumbled something out that I could'nt make out in the first few viewings.
Ill give it a 3.I love the first 15 minutes or so how it picks up right where the original left off.It had the same kinda feel to it for a little bit, but I think it fell apart.The middle was long and the hospital bored me.
Donald Pleasance was great though and the end was pretty cool too.

I told the others, they didn't believe me. You're all doomed. You're all doomed.
You let him drown. You never paid any attention. Look what you did to him. Look what you did to him.
I just watched it now and man does it have a great feel to it! True classic! I should have rated it a little higher Yea It was so sad when Brakett to go see his dead daughter Annie. Everytime the cop says "One of um was Annie" it still gets to me...
I was told to copy & paste this here by Tommy Jarvis, it's from the More Horror Franchise section, and it addresses my personal review of Halloween II.
Compared to other Horror sequels this one isn't so bad, but it ain't no Halloween, that's for sure. Halloween II does its best to continue the story of "when he came home", but it takes away from the classic ending of the original. You can't tell me you weren't shaking in your boots when Dr. Loomis peers over the balcony and Michael Myers is gone! Aside from that, Halloween II does keep true to the Michael Myers character, but the ending wasn't as climactic as the original either, or many of the other sequels to follow. While the film had its moments (as do all films), it suffered from a few drawbacks, one of them as previously mentioned being the anti-climactic finale, the second being it took away from the Myers just dissapearing from the balcony, and while Jamie Lee Curtis did do a good job acting, it just didn't match up to the original. I apologize if I appear to be bashing this movie, I'm not, but I'm the kind of person who has to speak from the heart, and give reviews that are cold and honest, to make sure everyone has a fair view of each individual's perception of a film.
Halloween II - 3/5

Cool thanks for pasting that here, I appreciate it. My let down was the lack of extras in the hospital. It's as if there were no other patients besides Laurie and the kid with the razor blade in his mouth...
But I guess the dark hallways and lack of patients made the atmosphere all the more scary when you think a freak like Meyers is walking those halls.
Okay, this movie was just plain weird. I mean how would Loomis survive that? I know they have this mudering, unstoppable killer, but having Loomis survive that? Plus, they change the setting from a neighborhood to a hospital... whats up with that?
