Review

It took three years to get it to screen, but Halloween #2 picks up immediately where Halloween #1 left off. Michael Myers chases Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) through the hospital where she has been recently interred, while Donald Pleasence grumbles about druids. Absolutely awful, with no trace of the original’s terror. (Side note: Curtis, playing a teenager, is 23 years old at the time.)
