Michael Myers is back. AND HE IS FILLED WITH RAGE! In the grand tradition of Universal’s BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HALLOWEEN II picks up immediately where its predecessor left off. After a climactic battle with Dr. Loomis/Donald Pleasance (“I shot him SIX TIMES!!”), Michael terrorizes a hospital where Laurie Strode/Jamie Lee Curtis is recovering. But this time, The Shape doesn’t mess around with off-screen violence and post-kill introspection. The suggestive horror of HALLOWEEN is swapped out for the chaotic destruction of FRIDAY THE 13TH, as Michael Myers becomes a ferocious rage-beast who is out to destroy!! Hammers-to-heads! Syringes-to-eyes! Boiling-water-to-faces! Combining the small-town paranoia of THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN with the uneasy darkness of THE TOOLBOX MURDERS, HALLOWEEN II is a masterful, beautifully made early-80s slasher that thrives on tension and shocks. This includes the scene where Michael Myers walks through a door instead of opening it. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
