Nifty retrospective documentary
27 September 2012 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

This cool little 45 minute retrospective documentary offers an enjoyable and informative portrait on the making of "Halloween II." Among the folks interviewed are director Rick Rosenthal, cinematographer Dean Cundey, co-composer Alan Howarth, executive producer Irwin Yablans, actors Leo Rossi and Lance Guest, actor/stunt coordinator Dick Warlock, Tommy Lee Wallace, and actresses Ana Alicia, Tawny Moyer, and Nancy Stephens. Wallace reveals that he was originally offered the opportunity to direct the film, but turned said offer down because he didn't care for the script. Yablans admits that he though the script was pedestrian and predictable as well as thinks the movie went overboard with the graphic gore. Rosenthal points out that he wanted to recreate the look and feel of the original as much as possible because the sequel was a direct continuation of the first one. Rossi talks about how Rosenthal went to bat for his casting as Bud and reveals that the water in the hot tub was freezing cold (we also find out that Pamela Susan Shoop was very reluctant to do the nudity for the hot tub scene). Alicia notes that she was such a hardcore method actress that after she accidentally cut her eye open on a desk shooting her death scene she tried unsuccessfully to persuade Rosenthal to leave that unintended moment in. Guest talks about how eager he was since it was his film debut. Cundey admits that he felt obligated to shoot the film out of a sense of loyalty. In addition, everyone mentions that Pleasence was a total pro to work with, Warlock discusses how careful he was with the cast members concerning their death scenes, the original ending was changed, and John Carpenter shot additional scenes after principal shooting on the movie was completed. Recommended viewing for fans of the film.
