The first sequel to John Carpenter’s seminal horror film.
It is still Halloween night 1978 and Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is in Haddonfield Hospital recovering from Michael Myers’ near-fatal attack upon her.
She now believes Myers to be dead, but somehow he comes back from the grave and the mayhem begins all over again.
With Dr Loomis (Donald Pleasence) and the town’s police in pursuit, the reason for Michael’s obsession with Laurie becomes clear.
With the exception of H20 the sequels to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror masterpiece have been universally awful. However, like the aforementioned 1998 version, this was the only one to feature the original star, Jamie Lee Curtis, and is a better film for it.
Carpenter had a hand in the script but this is a by-the-numbers retread and the direction of Rick Rosenthal lacks flair.
