Reconjuring Halloween II, Krasinski crafts a safe, but entertaining, sequel
2 June 2021 | by crazykittieboySee all my reviews

In 1978,John Carpenter crafted a masterpiece of suspense that is widely considered one of the greatest horror films of all time. It also spanned a series of sequels (for better or worse).

The first sequel, 1981's Halloween II, took an incredibly safe approach. Simply continue the story of the first one, directly after the first one, into the next day. This added very little to the lore, and by all accounts was an almost completely forgettable experience (though still maintained the same level of suspense as the first) due to the fact that nothing of value was added to the story.

When John Carpenter went back to the story, with the 4th installment, he found himself adding more to the lore, but everything quickly fell apart. The sequel the masses wanted could not live up to what the masses envisioned in their heads.

All this being said, Halloween II was a masterclass in directing a sequel, and Krasinski shows inspiration from Carpenter's work in his restraint for A Quiet Place Part II. Even though not much of value was added, it made an AWESOME theater experience, because viewers were given an hour and a half tour de force of the best parts of Halloween. This largely "forgettable" sequel was the only of the lot to ever capture that same feeling.

If you loved Halloween II (1981), then by all accounts you will likely love and appreciate A Quiet Place Part II. It goes nowhere you wouldn't have thought it was already going by the ending of A Quiet Place, it adds absolutely nothing to character development for any of the main cast, it introduces people just to dispose of them quickly and fiercely, and it absolutely will provide entertainment throughout the entire sitting.

Just don't come in expecting the deep introspective moments of the first film. They are absolutely missing, and the one scene where it may "add" to development of a new character of which I will not spoil, it doesn't work at all.

A Quiet Place Part II accepts the first movie as the film it was: A breath of old air that tasted incredibly fresh because we have not had it in so long within the horror genre. It does not try to outdo the first film. It does not try to add to the first film or the lore behind it. It sees the storyline for what it is and heads 120 mph in that direction without taking so much as a breather.

It is not A Quiet Place, nor should it be compared to it. Reviewers who claim it is better than the first are missing exactly what made the first so good. Reviewers who are lambasting this installment could use a refresher in filmography, especially horror sequels.

Even though Halloween II came nowhere close to offering what the first installment did, it was one of the best horror sequels (IMO) of all time precisely because it understood it couldn't live up to that.

Ultimately, Krasinski does the best he can with the remnants of what he had left after the ending of A Quiet Place. Some will groan at the end that we got Halloween II, but the alternative is Halloween IV.

Ultimately, it fails to live up to its predecessor, but is more entertaining than any horror sequel in the past few decades. Sometimes, less is more. 8 out of 10.
