Halloween 2 Review
Written by: Googopqp
Halloween 2 picks up exactly where the first one left off with Laurie killing Michael, or so she thought. As Michael is being brought to the hospital he breaks out and once again starts killing, except this time its not just baby sitters its anyone in his way. Laurie is taken to the hospital and you find out Michael is headed that way. But of course all the police and staff are away from the hospital, except a small staff, and no one is at the hospital, but Michael Myers is there....And he starts killing off the staff and trying to get to Laurie to finally get her...but why?....You will find out soon :D
Where the first one stood very high and proud and inspirational this one lacks, but it isn't a bad movie. This movie was still pretty good. Its hard to be a sequel to a classic and I don't hold that against this movie. I did enjoy this.
Halloween 2 has a lot more bloody and gore than the first and that in a way hurt it. Why you ask? Mostly because the first one got away with virtually no blood at all and worked very well that way but this one did have some good kills and much more kills in it. This movie worked tho.
The John Carpenter score is still here as well but not as good, but enough about the bad sides to thsi movie, more about the good stuff. The acting is horrible in this movie and is okay at times. Some of the kills are good and some of the characters are developed. The story makes sense and Donald Pleasence is just as crazy as ever lol. The ending to the movie is also pretty kewl but then almost ruined in the fourth, but we'll get to that later.
Overall this movie is worth watching if you are a fan of the first but don't expect a better movie and don't expect greatness by any means. But this movie was still pretty good. I give Halloween 2 a 7/10!!!!
