Summary Review: Successful exercise in terror

It is rare that horror sequels (or any film sequels) manage to capture the tone and feel of their predecessor. However Halloween 2, made 3 years after John Carpenter's original, is a successful exercise in terror.

However, expect more violence than the almost entirely blood-free first outing.

A very worthwhile film for lovers of the horror genre.

Summary Review: Brilliant and scary

This has to be the most scary, mysterious, weird, Halloween film of the series, and it has NO Michael Myers!

This film takes a break from Michael and lets just say if you haven't seen the film don't judge it! It has everything from suspense and action, to horror and romance. I would have to say that I was on the edge of my seat the ending was particularly brilliant and scary.

The next thing we see is a bug crawling out of a large hole in her rather molten looking face. Other versions fade to black before the camera can close in on her face.
  • The love scene between the two main characters has been slightly trimmed
  • When the old man is killed in the junkyard, you loose the footage of his head being pulled off and the resultant fountain of blood.
  • In the scene were the robot man attacks the woman in the laborotory, he reaches for a drill, it starts to spin and in the video version it cuts off. In a showing on Sky we see a shot of the woman being drilled with the head obscured by a hospital trolley, but you can hear the sound of her being drilled and see her legs shaking.
  • There are missing scenes during the death of Harry Grimbridge, these are three shots of the assassins fingers in his eyes, the wrenching of the skull and his feet thrashing about.

Summary Comments

Ten years after his original massacre, the invalid Michael Myers awakens and returns to Haddonfield to kill his seven-year-old niece on Halloween. Can Dr. Loomis stop him?

After the failure that was the 3rd Halloween sequel, the writers knew that was mainly due to the absence of Michael Myers. So what did they do? They invited Michael back in for the 4th sequel and back into the story of Halloween.

Halloween 4 is a good sequel, it's not the strongest in the series, but it's one of the better stories of the franchise.

From IMDb. Some dialogue and gore was cut from the U.S. release to obtain an "R" rating:

  • The scene in which the cop (Fenton Quinn) is killed outside of the Myers' house was shortened considerably. In the original version, as Michael is bashing his head into the glass on the windshield, there was a shot where you could see the glass embedded into his face.
  • The shot of Mikey (Jonathan Chapin) quivering on the ground was shortened to avoid an "X" rating. You can still notice the abrupt jump in the shot before he is dragged away by Michael.
  • In the documentary Inside Halloween 5 a cut scene is shown of a man removing Michaels mask and looking at it weirdly. Another scene cut was removed because it was considered too graphic. As Jamie is trying to climb back up in the laundry chute Michael stabs Jamie through her ankle. When Jamie emerges from the laundry chute you can see her ankle wounded and bleeding.

There Producers cut was given a festival screening in November 2013. It is the original version prepared by the film makers. It was substantially reworked into the Theatrical Version as a result of feedback from preview audiences.

See review from  mcbastardsmausoleum.blogspot.co.uk :

Things missing from the producer's cut are a lot of extra gore scenes like the head explosion of Mr. Strode and the bone protruding from the snapped neck of a victim. Pretty much the entire finale was re shot so you don't have the operating room massacre or Michael being injected with a syringe full of nitric acid, but what you gain with the Cult of Thorn mythology makes for a more complete story. This cut of the film is just more enjoyable with more atmosphere and is not as disjointed.

Dr Loomis' exit in the producer's cut - while not perfect - is way better than the chopped finale is the theatrical version.

However, Michael isn't too far off and will continue his murdering 'Halloween' rampage until he gets his sister all to himself.

US: The Director's Cut is MPAA Unrated for its US release:

From IMDb. The Director's Cut is a significantly new take on the story with the Laurie Strode character have for more bleak time of it. The Director's Cut does not contain any additional sex and violence though.

  • The opening scene with Laurie walking and Loomis being placed into the ambulance is longer.
  • The hospital dream scene has an extra sequence of Laurie attempting to cross over a pile of bodies.
  • An on screen title that said "One Year Later" in the Theatrical Cut now says "Two Years Later."
  • During the breakfast scene, Laurie and Annie now argue about going to the psychiatrist.
  • More dialogue with Laurie and the psychiatrist. Laurie looks at a framed inkblot on a wall and says it looks like two white horses with a ghostly figure between them.
  • Loomis' press conference is expanded. Loomis discusses Michael's Oedipal complex, as well as the idea that Michael perhaps saw Loomis as a father figure.
  • Added sequence where Laurie runs a bath and begins to freak out.
  • Laurie stopping to play with a pig on her way to work is removed. She instead goes to the psychiatrist and tells her about playing with the pig (we see a few seconds of it, now in flashback), and how it triggered a nervous breakdown of sorts. When the shrink denies her more pills, Laurie freaks out and swears.
  • The scene where Annie finds Laurie drinking a beer in her room has been expanded: They have another fight.
  • A non-masked Michael (along with Young Michael and his mother) angrily looks at a billboard that advertises Loomis' book.
  • When Laurie and Maya come home from the party, there is a short added sequence of them making tea in the kitchen prior to going upstairs. There's also an added shot of Michael apparently walking out of the house.
  • Brackett's reaction to finding Annie's body is longer, containing video flashbacks of real-life actress Danielle Harris as a child.
  • The ending is significantly different: After Loomis enters the cabin, Michael throws him through a wall, and the two of them wind up outside. Michael then removes his mask, yells "DIE!", and stabs Loomis. The cops then open fire and kill Michael. Laurie then comes out, takes Michael's knife, and approaches Loomis with it, implying that she may stab him. The cops then open fire on her and seemingly kill her. We then fade to the same hospital footage seen at the end of the theatrical cut as a cover of "Love Hurts" plays on the soundtrack.
