Halloween II

Halloween II ★★★

Despite essentially being an expansion of the 1978 film, picking up literally right where it left off, Halloween II frankly doesn't add a whole lot to original story, and by and large is a step down from the first film. The creeping tension and mysterious atmosphere that made the original so compelling are largely absent this time around, and while the film itself can be entertaining in parts, the plot is far too aimless for me to get as gripped and as invested in it, especially seeing how little focus is given to our protagonist at all.
