external linkEverything looks so damn bleak and boring, especially the scenes in the hospital, he uses tons of dull colors, lots of straight edges and there are pesky shadows everywhere. ... Halloween 2 could've been a million times better, the story is there, the performances are there, it just seems to be a lack of soul that wieghs the thing down.

external linkPlaying more formulaic than the original and not capturing the outright suspense of the original; this is still an entertaining follow-up, is watchable, gives a little bit more of the Myers back story and has some pretty cool deaths. 2.5/4

external linkThis doesn't come close to capturing the atmosphere of the original, and since it tries to keep a tense tone for its entire run, Halloween II becomes exhausting by the end. 62/100
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)

external linkPicks up right where the first film ended and, unlike many sequels, does a good job of driving the story further. ... Despite being an overall success, Part 2 does have some continuity problems.

external linkThe combination of creative talents works well, for although it was not better than the original, "Halloween II" was just as good (rare indeed for a sequel). 4.5/5
