Shout! Factory's horror division, which they've christened Scream! Factory, continues to release quality Blu-ray versions of cult classics most uneducated viewers write off as B-movie schlock. One of those 1980s gems they've treated like cinema royalty is Halloween II. Many look at this sequel as the unwanted imitator of the original that upped the gore ante and added cheap jump moments where genuine ones of suspense once were. However, there's a legion of fans out there of the franchise that carry a treaty loyalty to the film and its cast and creators. The new Halloween II: Collector's Edition was put together for those individuals.
John Carpenter didn't know what he was unleashing in 1978 when his independent slasher Halloween hit theaters. It was a runaway sensation which spawned hundreds of imitators and continues to even now. Whenever a movie is financially successful, you can bet on it studios are going to demand a sequel. Halloween II followed the original in 1981 without Carpenter's direction. It picked up exactly where the first one left off.
