Synopsis

"Actually, Halloween II is good enough to deserve a sequel of its own. By the standards of most recent horror films, this — like its predecessor — is a class act." – Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Picking up exactly where the first film left off, Halloween II follows the same ill-fated characters as they once again encounter the knife-wielding maniac they thought had been left for dead. It seems the inhuman Michael Myers is still very much alive and out for more revenge as he stalks the deserted halls of the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. As he gets closer to his main target, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) discovers the chilling mystery behind the crazed psychopath's actions. Written by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, Halloween II is a spine-tingling dark ride into the scariest night of the year.

Why We Love It

"Scream Factory's Blu-ray reissue of Halloween II is excellent. It not only offers up a marginally improved transfer over the previous Universal release but improved audio as well and a considerable amount of new extras and the television cut of the movie - it's hard to think of anything that was left out!" - Ian Jane, DVD Talk

"The Scream Factory release corrects the mistakes of Universal’s disc, including the altered 'Moustapha Akkad Presents' credit. The movie’s been given a new transfer that’s slightly more pleasing than Universal’s effort." - Dr. Adam Jahnke, The Digital Bits

"Shout’s Halloween II actually looks better than last year’s offering (if you can believe it). Colors are superb, skin tones looks natural and grain structure has been perfectly preserved. This sucker does right by Dean Cundey’s camera work, delivering a nearly flawless presentation." – Matt Serafini, Dread Central

"The transfer is positively stunning, with crisp, inky details, spot-on color and a vivid textures. Dust and dirt specks are virtually nonexistent, and grain is kept naturalistic without overpowering the image." – RL Shaffer, IGN
