Variety
There are incredibly almost never any really terrific scares in 92 minutes - just multiple shots of violence and gore that are more gruesome than anything else. Full Review
Adam Markovitz
Entertainment Weekly
What Halloween II does have, though, is Zombie's claustrophobic visual style; he half-drowns his actors in shadow, then tracks them through windows and around corners like a focused predator. If only we cared about the prey. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Perhaps reflecting the filmmaker's other career as a recording artist, many of the film's scares come as much from the ultra-vivid horrifying sound effects as the gore itself. Full Review
James Berardinelli
ReelViews
With Halloween II, it was all about graphic, grisly murders and a high body count - lessons learned at the box office. And that disparity, more than anything else, illustrates why "Halloween" is a classic and its first sequel is a sloppy afterthought. Full Review

Zombie walks the walk, you can't deny it. And he's found the medium where he can let his freak flag fly highest. Now, he can proudly put that battered old William Shatner Halloween mask on a stick, too, and let it rip. Full Review
