Evan Ambrose’s review published on Letterboxd:
Okay, I could probably stop watching Halloween II.
But, I’m not gonna, cause Halloween II is quite the sharp delight too.
“Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream. Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen…”
Seriously though, this is one of the most under-appreciated slasher sequels ever. Yeah, it admittedly doesn’t really get kickin’ until around the halfway point, but from there on out, it’s g-o-o-d. Some simply can’t take on the fire.
Michael Myers swinging a knife viciously in the air without looking is still the gnarliest shit I’ve ever seen. This dude is 99.9% possessed by the Devil and you couldn’t convince me otherwise.
And, there’s no way you could hate on the sequence leading up to that immaculate elevator shot, as well. Mwah! Perfecto!
The twist is legitimately dumb, nevertheless. AND BEN TRAMER’S FATE IS THE FUNNIEST THING EVER; HAHAHAHA.
Michael Myers really does a bass drop with a body in this movie, though. Let’s not forget that this is an actual thing.
