You don't know what death is...
September 8, 2017
Halloween 2 (1981) is a great sequel to a classic film, and its by far my favorite sequel in the Halloween franchise. The story picks up directly following the events of the first Halloween. Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) is taken to completely empty Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, and Michael will stop at nothing to kill her. Donald Pleasance gives a great performance as the unhinged Dr Loomis, who is relentlessly tracking down Michael. Jamie Lee Curtis isn't given much to work with, since Laurie is under sedation for most of the film. The gore is definitely ramped up for this sequel, and the effects look great.
The Shout Factory Blu Ray looks and sounds fantastic. This release is packed full of extras. Multiple commentaries, making of features, trailers, and more. Also included is the TV cut of Halloween 2.
I would highly recommend this Shout Factory Blu Ray.
