At the end Hunt asks what's the count and is told "ten so far". But altogether there are 12 victims between the first and second movies. There's the mechanic in the first movie where Loomis finds the truck with the hospital gown and where Michael got his coveralls. And also poor Alice the first victim in Halloween 2 who either hasn't been found yet or in actuality her death was filmed by John Carpenter in post production to get one more kill to make it scarier. If you're counting the novels based on the two movies there are two additional victims. One is a guard who is killed at smiths grove the night Michael escapes and also the female news producer is killed when she discovers Michael has stowed away in her trunk while trying to fix a flat tire, which is how Michael drove himself to the area where the hospital is. That's not including poor Lester the German Shepherd and the dog he ate at his house. See more »
(at around 14 mins) When Gary and his mother arrive at the hospital, the ambulance containing Laurie can be seen driving up in the background. In the next shot, the ambulance enters the parking lot and drives up behind them again. See more »

Although the UK theatrical version was unedited, the video and initial DVD release were cut by 17 seconds by the BBFC to edit the scene of a woman being dunked in a boiling hydrotherapy pool. All the cuts were waived for the 2002 DVD issue. See more »
Creating a sequel after a smash hit has a lot of pressure on your hands. Will it be good? Will critics or the public agree? What made the first film good? This film isn't as good as the first but is still not bad.
Taking place in the same night as the first, Michael is on the hunt again, this time targeting a hospital where Laurie Strode is being taken in after a wound.
This film has a semi-fast pace and has a greater kill count. It's a typical sequel. But this film was a powerhouse, there was more to be found and there was nothing stopping Sam Loomis and Michael Myers to getting to their destination as soon as possible. And the tone kept you guessing when he'd come back, especially because it is almost constantly dark.
The negative side of this film is that it's kinda boring. The sequences for Loomis and Myers were at times too long and we needed a break from getting too deep into finding each other.
Quick review, decent film, cool tones.
Moderate nudity(for a bathtub scene), gore, and brief language
