More of the Night He Came Home. Proving John Carpenter's maxim that "You can't kill the boogeyman", this second installment [sic] in the blockbusting Halloween series picks up exactly from where the original movie ended. It is still Halloween night 1978, and despite Dr. Loomis' best efforts, Michael Myers (aka The Shape) is still at large in the sleepy town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Having failed to kill Laurie Strodes (Jamie Lee Curtis) the seemingly indestructable [sic] Myers pursues her to the Haddonfield Clinic, where she has been sent to recover from her injuries. Michael then continues his murderous spree until he finally confronts Laurie and we learn the horrifying truth behind his motives. First time director Rick Rosenthal seriously ups the gore and body-count (with some help from John Carpenter) is this taught 1981 sequel that was scripted and produced by Carpenter and Debra Hill. Originally intended to be the final and concluding part of the Halloween series, fans know that this was just the beginning. Halloween 2 [sic] stands alone as a worthy contribution to the slasher genre, but clearly serves as the perfect companion piece to the original movie: watch them back-to-back and relive the complete terror of "The Night He Came Home".

Reviews

"This is another of Kim Newman's commentaries . . . it's a refreshing change to hear someone's views on a film that they didn't even work on. Stephen and Kim chat about the film as if they are old friends (and they might well be for all I know). They point out the gaffs, discuss the pre-production of the film, and basically entertain the viewer for the film's duration without taking it too seriously. I learned a lot about Halloween II from this chat track as I did from the other commentaries that Stephen and Kim have recorded (Halloween III for example)."
