‘Halloween II’ Movie Summary

In the spirit of such 80’s sequels as The Sting II, Grease 2, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, and Fletch Lives, John Carpenter continues the tradition of following a god damned American classic with a meaningless money grab disguised as a film sequel.

Halloween II once again has the show down between “The Shape”, Michael Myers, versus “The Body”, Jamie Lee Curtis. The difference in this film, it doesn’t take place on Halloween, it takes place on November 1st.

The film picks up where the last film left off, with Dr. Loomis putting six in the center mass of Michael and knocking him off a two story balcony. However, this is a sequel, so they have to up the ante. In the beginning of this film, Loomis fires seven shots from his six shooter. When Loomis goes to check on the Michael’s body, “The Shape” is gone.

Meanwhile, Laurie Strode, played by Curtis, is taken to the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital to be treated for her injuries. Haddonfield is the healthiest place in America, because it appears that there are no other patients in the hospital and they only need a skeleton crew to take care of their “patient.” While Laurie is being treated, Loomis continues his obsessive quest to find Michael. After scaring one unfortunate teenager into oncoming traffic, Loomis is left by himself to conduct the search since the police department is as busy as their hospitals.
