| Fast paced entertaining horror
This is the best Halloween movie since the original came out. It starts as it means to go on with action and nods to the past that will have horror fans glued. It's so fast paced it needs to almost slow down for a rest half way through before the thrilling climax. An excellent sequel.

Trivia

During the opening credits, there's a yearbook photo with Laurie Strode as part of the "Class of 78", meaning she graduated in 1978. However in the original film, Laurie was in school during the fall of 1978. Although it's not mentioned what grade she was in, she would've been the Class of either 79, 80, or 81.


Quotes

Laurie Strode: My name's not Keri Tate.
Will Brennan: Oooh, what is it?
Laurie Strode: Laurie Strode.
Will Brennan: Strode?


Goofs

Scream 2 is playing in the background in one of the scenes. However, the original Scream had the first Halloween playing in one of its scenes, thus effectively negating the universe the Halloween movies take place in.


Crazy Credits

After the final credits have ended, the words "In Memory of Donald Pleasance" appear before the Dimension Films logo and the movie is finished.
