John Carpenter produced, supervised and co-scripted and even directed uncredited a few additional scenes for this film. Carpenter's music from the first film was also used, and he was involved in the film's post-production as well. See more »
Stuntman Dick Warlock's eyes are very noticeably blue throughout the movie, yet Michael's character is supposed to have "the blackest eyes, the devils eyes." Tony Moran's eyes in the original's unmasked shot appeared brown. See more »
I would give this movie a 20 out of 10 if I could but it wouldn't make sense . My point by typing that is that this movie exceeds sequel expectations and thensome. The original Halloween scared millions into submission back in 1978, three years later in 1981 director Rick Rosenthal teamed up with John Carpenter and Debra Hill (Director/Writer of the original) to write a script for the next movie 'Halloween 2'. What impressed me was Rosenthals attention to detail, meaning he re-captured the entire ending of the first movie and played it back again into his new movie and somehow tied the end of the first movie and the beginning of his movie together and went from there, absolute genius is what I call that. What follows is an hour and a half of suspense, chills, trauma, gore, you name it, it's in here. Donald Pleasance joins the team to reprise his role of Dr. Sam Loomis, Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, Charles Cyphers (a Carpenter movie regular) reprises his role as Sheriff Lee Brackett, Nancy Loomis makes a short cameo as Lee Brackett's daughter Annie (whom Michael got in the first film). This installment is just plain awesome to me, the old characters are back, the theme music is updated but is still just as creepy with now a synthesizer effect added to it. The ending could be considered questionable but I guess that depends if you've seen the TV version or the regular movie version. I'll let you make your own assessment as to how you feel the ending (or entire movie) was handled in general. A cinematic masterpiece, bossa nova. one million out of ten stars.
