Halloween II (also known as Halloween II: The Horror Continues and Halloween II: The Nightmare Isn't Over!) is the 1981 horror sequel to the 1978 low-budget blockbuster Halloween. Both films are set in the fictional Midwestern United States town of Haddonfield, Illinois, on Halloween night, 1978.

Halloween II was directed by Rick Rosenthal and stars Donald Pleasence as Dr. Sam Loomis, Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, and stunt performer Dick Warlock as Michael Myers, and features a cameo appearance by Nancy Loomis as the corpse of Annie Brackett.

While other films in the Halloween series followed, this was the last in the series written by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. The film's events take place immediately following those of the first film, and center on Myers's attempts to find and kill Laurie Strode as well as Dr. Loomis's efforts to track and kill Myers.

Stylistically, the sequel reproduces certain key elements that made the original Halloween a success, such as first-person camera perspectives and everyday settings. The film, however, departs significantly from the original concept by incorporating more graphic violence and gore, more closely imitating other films in the emerging splatter film sub-genre. Halloween II was not as successful as the original, but nonetheless grossed (sic) $25.5 million at the box office in the United States, roughly ten times its $2.5 million budget.[1]

Halloween II was intended to be the last chapter of the Halloween series to revolve around Michael Myers and the Haddonfield setting.[2] However, following the lackluster reaction to Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), Myers returned in the film Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988).
