Foto Frenzy: Halloween II!




After ineffectually shooting Michel Myers six times, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) is desperate to find his
former patient, teaming back up with Sheriff Brackett (Charles Cyphers) as they comb the streets of
Haddonfield Illinois on the night of October 31st, 1978.








The Shape (Dick Warlock) wastes no time finding a new blade.










Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is taken to Haddonfield Memorial Hospital to have her physical wounds cared for.
The emotional wounds from this night of horror are going to take longer to heal. And the night isn't over yet!









The Shape is soon prowling the halls at Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, and people start disappearing....









The police investigate a break in at the elementary school, and they find a word written in blood on the chalkboard.
Samhain - a Celtic word for the time of the dead - Halloween. While seemingly a shout out to Curtis Richards's
excellent novelization of the first movie, which added a wild backstory about the murderous rage that came from
those Celtic times, striking the males in the Myers family every few generations - this instead sparked too much
imagination in some future filmmakers, leading us to the low points of the series. And yes, I'm looking at you,
Halloween 5 and Halloween 6!








Nurse Jill (Tawny Moyer) finds herself distressingly alone as the night wears on.





Has Michael Myers found his victim?












Whoever is in that bed is definitely not prepped for surgery - but that scalpel is about to see some use anyway...








Can Dr. Loomis stop Michael Myers and save Laurie Strode?






I have a soft spot for this horror sequel, and will watch it with anyone who wants to sit down and spin it with me.



Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

  1. I love, love this one too. 5 and 6 were dreck, but still fun. I loved H2O from 98, too. That was fantastic! I love when Jamie grabs the ax to go back inside to get her brother. So badass.

    Love the stills and the commentary. You gave me a great chuckle this morning. :)

    1. You nailed this series right down the line! I have seen the bootleg "Producer's Cut" of Halloween 6 and I think it is the better version - even if Thorn can suck it for gobbing up a nice simple love story of a boy and his knife!
