About the Movie

John Carpenter's Halloween scared the living daylights out of 25 million people and set a precedent in smashing box office records for a horror film. But the nightmare is just beginning... Picking up precisely where its predecessor left off, Halloween II follows the same ill-fated characters as they encounter the knife-wielding maniac they left for dead in the first Halloween. It seems the inhuman Michael Myers is still very much alive and out for more revenge as he stalks the deserted halls of the hospital where his sister lays waiting. As he gets closer and closer to his terrified target, Dr. Loomis discovers the chilling mystery behind the crazed psychopath's savage actions. Written by horror masters John Carpenter and Debra Hill, Halloween II is a spine-tingling dark ride into the scariest night of the year.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This uninspired version amounts to lukewarm sloppy seconds in comparison to the original film that made director John Carpenter a hot property. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It's a little sad to witness a fall from greatness, and that's what we get in Halloween II. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Halloween is a classic and its first sequel is a sloppy afterthought. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 10, 2008

Rotten: 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. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
