[Masters of Carpentry] Monthly Feature #12: Halloween 2 (1981)

"It is a film that has a lot of problems and it felt like a sequel that they made because they had to, but I still like that they brought a lot of the same crew back, so it has a lot of the same technical polish. It looks great, it's edited very well. When it follows the first film is where it's at its strongest, in terms of the town hysteria, Loomis running around with the sheriff's department, pulling out the bodies, in terms of that whole 'Did we actually get him or is this just some other random kid?' I like it when it's doing that. But a lot of the middle film, at the hospital, it's a very wrote slasher movie, where you have very poorly defined characters doing very stupid things and usually just walking right into their own deaths."
