This review is for the Collector's Edition of Halloween II from Shout Factory. This disc is LOCKED to Region A and will NOT play on UK players. See here for confirmation: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Halloween-II-Blu-ray/46632/
I suggest either buying the region free 30th Anniversary edition (see here: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Halloween-II-Blu-ray/19651/) or waiting for a decent UK release of this film.
DON'T BUY THE SHOUT FACTORY release unless you have a region-free or region-switchable blu-ray player as you will be very disappointed!
AMAZON STOP GROUPING ALL REVIEWS TOGETHER! It's a stupid policy that only leads to confusion and annoyance for your customers. Wise up and update your system!
Their is now a massive police hunt for the knife wielding madman, the police think that the killer is just killing people at random, but what they don't know is Laurie is his sister and he will do anything to kill her and anyone who gets in his way. The only BIG! negative thing for me was, was the ending, don't get me wrong it was great but basically they burnt him to death, up to a point their would be nothing left but dust, so how he can turn up five more times is beyond me, but still I love Halloween 4,5,6,7 well except Halloween 8 and the two Rob Zombie films which were truly awful.
This review is for the UNIVERSAL(thank you universal) Blu-ray release which is region free, the picture is ok I have seen worse plus the 5.1 is in DTS and sounds great, plus the film ratio is in 2.35:1, and looks good, there are a few features on the disc I have listed them below.
Terror in the Aisles
Several concepts are introduced in this film that play out throughout the subsequent movies, and the central characters become the focus of a new plot strand that was still running in H20 in 1998.
The disc. The print and transfer of this REGION FREE disc are the best I have ever seen the movie look. There is a pleasing amount of film grain - not excessive but present giving the overall presentation a filmic appearance. The soundtrack is suitably cleaned up to match the visuals.
The extras. The main reason many people (myself included) are buying this disc is for the full 1080p transfer of Terror in the Aisles a late 80s documentary featuring many clips of horror movies. This feature was released alone in cinemas, and on VHS and Laser disc, but is a very welcome addition to the HII package.
Overall the movie is the part of the disc that loses a point as its just not as good as the original (none of the sequels or re-imaginings have been, have they?)but I still heartily give it 4 out of 5.
This film has never been released on DVD or Blu Ray before and my old VHS copy from 1984 was beginning to get very worn indeed.
So it was a delight to be able to finally get it on disc.
Whilst no great effort has been made to clean up the image I can say that it is far better than my old VHS tape in both sound and picture and I have never seen it look better since I saw it at the cinema many years ago.
The feature presentation of Halloween II is a massive upgrade too on my DVD copies so this was a win/win disc for me.

Very happy with this purchase I can now add it to my Halloween film collection.Published 1 month ago by Sian Dyas
Halloween 2 has 'bad sequel' stamped all over it. The movie is just a poor imitation of the original. There are just too many 'suspend disbelief' moments throughout the film. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Online Shopping
