Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
It's the same night as the original Halloween. Michael Myers is around the neighborhood, after being gunned by Dr.Loomis six times. Now, he's in a hospital where the girl Laurie Strode was taken. And there's a reason why Michael is after her... Written by
Jamie Lee Curtis is clearly wearing a wig. She has very little hairline and the texture of the hair is different. See more »
In Halloween, Michael falls off the back balcony of the Doyle house, however in this film he falls off the front balcony. The balcony in the first movie is a covered balcony, the balcony in this film is not. See more »
[after discovering Laurie is Michael's sister]
[to the Marshall]
Turn this car around, now!
I can't do that. I have orders.
[draws gun and points it at him]
Well those orders have changed!
Doctor, you're getting yourself into a lot of trouble.
What is it you guys usually do? Fire a warning shot, right?

On the same night in 1978, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) thought he killed Micheal Myers but he has escaped. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has survived from being killed and now she's taken to the hospital. Micheal is following Laurie and He stalks the hospital employees one by one to get Laurie. But there is a dark secret between Laurie and Micheal that we will know on Halloween night.
Directed by Rick Rosenthal (American Dreamer, Bad Boys, Distant Thunder) made a terrific sequel, which is entertaining but this sequel doesn't quite have the same suspense as the first film. But it has a different look and the setting in the hospital could be a scary place.
