In many ways, this is a rerun of the first book. After becoming friends with Brenda in the end of Halloween Night and promising to be a nicer person, Halley's turned into a brat again and is doing exactly the same things as in the first book, including stealing Brenda's boyfriend Jake - despite the fact that she's already dating Ted, the guy she seduced away from Brenda last time.

(Good Lord, R.L. Stine, where do you get these douchebag teenage boys from? Are high school boys just like this in the States? It's been ten years since I was in high school, but if my foster kid had behaved like any of these guys he'd have been in for some serious verbal whipping.)

So the pranks continue, as in the last book. Halley "accidentally" pours sulphuric acid over Brenda's hand in Chem. Someone sticks rotten pumpkin flesh in Brenda's locker. And Brenda and Traci and their new friend Angela decide to humiliate Jake - and maybe Halley - by setting up a haunted house and then pretending that they're going to kill him. A bit weak really.

Brenda's parents are marginally less scummy than in book 1, although they don't seem to have any real sympathy for Brenda's sulphuric acid burn. Halley is insensitive enough to bring the person who tried to kill Brenda last year into the house, saying that everyone deserves a second chance. Now that s***is wack. If someone brought the guy who tried to kill me into my house, I'd scream bloody murder. And then I'd kick them both out. And if I were a teenager without the authority to do that, I'd call child protective services, because clearly Brenda's parents are neglectful to the point where their daughter nearly gets killed TWICE, after receiving threats each time that the parental units didn't take seriously.

Had these books as a child, and they were accidently given away. I loved going into the shop to buy them, so many memories created from reading them, so its great to have them back.

Halloween Fun 24 May 2007
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Halloween Night II" takes place the following Halloween after "Halloween Night". Brenda, the main character, has two best friends, Traci and Angela. (Traci and Dina were her two best friends in the first book.) Brenda's cousin, Halley, still lives with Brenda, and is still a pest; Brenda's parents are still very unsensitive to Brenda's irritability. Halley is still stealing boyfriends.

The media tells about a maniac in town that is on the loose. And when Brenda is at the mall, she sees a shady-looking man who chases her, and then comes to her house and knocks. She thinks this man is the maniac. He absolutely terrifies her.

Brenda is getting Halloween horror pranks (rotten meat, worms, threatening notes, etc.) again this year. She is determined to find out who is doing it.

Brenda is upset with her boyfriend Jake for going out with Halley. But on Halloween, Brenda, Traci, and Jake all dress up as skeletons. Brenda and Traci, with Angela's help, have horror plans for Jake on Halloween . . .

Halloween Night 24 May 2004
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the book called Halloween Night by. R.L. Stine. I gave this book 4 stars because it is very suspensful and it draws you in more and more every page. The characters aren't who they seem to be and the plot gets thicker every chapter! It is about this girl named Brenda and her friends Traci and Dina that hate Brenda's cousin Halley. They are out to get her, it seems innocent enough until something goes wrong! Her plan backfires. Now the bad things are being done to her! But by whom? Is it Halley, the jealous cousin? Is it Traci.. her best friend? Or is it Dina, the one you would least suspect? You'll have to find out for yourself and check out the book Halloween Night by R.L.Stine.

Exciting and suspenseful.!!!!! 10 Jan. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was thrilling and nail biting. If you are looking for a exciting book, here it is. it is about a girl with a cosin who lives with her. This girl also has a boy friend. Her boy friend cheated on her with her cosin. Then she is at the mall and a fat man is chasing her and trying to kill her. Nobody belives her except her friedns. Then a very unexpected thing happened. But the ending will leave you scared toleave your door open at night.I rated this book a 3 out of 5 only becauseit waslike all other horrer/thrillers. Over all I would reconmend it to kids in 6th grade and up.

Who said the sequel isn't as good as the first? 9 Feb. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My name is Lisa and I'm 17. I have read almost all of R.L. Stine's books. I read the first Halloween Night and I just read Halloween Night II. And it was great! In the 1st book Brenda thinks Halley is the person trying to ruin her life when it is her best friend Dina. And now she thinks Halley is up to her old tricks again until Dina gets out of a psychiatric hospital. Then the terror begins. Brenda thinks it's Dina trying to kill her again but it's not. It's one of her other friends. Which one is it? Read it and find out!
A little better than the first. 19 July 2015
By Donna C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So kind of a turd sequel to the turd first book, Brenda is losing her mind thinking that her cousin, who’s a pretty crappy person, is out to get her for reasons. I mean I can see it because Halley is stealing every guy that Brenda dates, takes her room, steals her clothes, Brenda’s parents don’t support her at all, and is an all around jerk to her so it’s really no surprise that when Brenda starts getting threatened again she immediately zeros in on Halley. Except she didn’t learn all that much from history. She had a total hard-on for it being Halley last time and it wasn’t. Why would it be the case this time? Who knows.

The plans that these kids cook up in order to frightening each other would only ever work in this Fear Street world that Stine cooks up. We’re all going to dress as skeletons and then go to Angela’s house to scare the jerk boyfriend. I’m not sure where the skeleton costumes come in, maybe I glazed over that part, but they were largely irrelevant. Really, this sequel was mostly a repeat of the last book, including the crazy chick who did it last time.

Apparently she’s okay now and wants to be friends again but gets all butthurt when Brenda’s like YOU STABBED ME GO AWAY as she should rightly do.
I did like the ending of HALLOWEEN NIGHT II, though. I will give it that. It had a creepy, broken edge to it that I didn’t see coming (do I ever? no) that made things just a little uncomfortable, which is good. I shouldn’t be bored or blasé about a horror book. I want to almost say that the ending came out of nowhere but in hindsight there were enough hints dropped throughout the book that pointed to it in some way. Far better than being completely blindsided by the “twist” ending, that’s for sure. This one was actually a twist.

If I’m honest with myself this sequel was better than the first book, if for nothing more than the ending. Aside from Halley and Jake (the boyfriend) you don’t have crappy characters being crappy to each other who are supposed to be friends with each other so that’s nice and refreshing. And the ending wasn’t so outrageous and ridiculously planned that I laughed at it. So yes, an improvement. Still not Stine’s best showing but it’s better than some.
