Around five and a half months after this movie was released, another horror hospital picture with a crazed killer launched, called Visiting Hours (1982). Both films featured a skull on their main movie posters, for "Halloween II" it was superimposed over a pumpkin, and for "Visiting Hours" it was formed as a pattern of switched on lights within the darkened shaped building of the hospital building. Moreover, the theme music for "Visiting Hours" was modeled after John Carpenter's iconic Halloween (1978) music score which is also featured in "Halloween II". See more »

Michael Myers (age 23) is listed in the ending credits. The film takes place in 1978 when Michael Myers is 21 years old, which is also stated by Dr. Loomis in the movie. See more »
The gruesome shot where a nurse gets a syringe in her temple was toned down in the German version. This however didn't stop the censors from banning the film. See more »
This movie's story began right after the end of the first installment. After been shot for six times by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance), Michael Myers vanished in the dark of the night. Meanwhile, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee-Curtis) had a medical nursing in a local hospital. Now Michael Myers continues his killing spree in the hospital. Once again Laurie Strode must endure a night form hell and reveal her own darkest secret.
Rick Rosenthal continues the John Carpenter directional style and he did it on a faster pace than the first one. It makes the movie is more enjoyable for now age viewers. Jamie Lee-Curtis is still at her best. I would not deface her name, because she's the best. In general, this movie is a mediocre, but decently enough to watch, especially when you are bored in a lonely night with nothing to do, rent this movie and watch this full cliché mandatory and your night won't be that bad anymore.
