Calm down, calm down. And please put the pitchforks away. It you read the title of the post and are already shouting obscenities at the computer screen, allow me to piss you off some more so you can shout more of them at me. Now look, I love John Carpenter’s original Halloween. It was groundbreaking, creepy, had a great soundtrack, and introduced us to one of the most iconic horror villains ever in Michael Myers. I can go on and on about the level of awesomeness that is and was Halloween. But…….I have to be honest. If I’m sitting at home on Halloween night, and I’m thinking of which Halloween movie I want to pop into the ol’ Blu-ray player……..I’m gonna go with Halloween II.
Perhaps it’s the fact that I can’t stop staring at Jamie Lee Curtis’ wig in the movie. Or maybe it’s because I laugh every time drunk ass Ben Tramer gets hit by the ambulance. But there’s no denying that for me, Halloween II is much more entertaining than the first. It’s more of a straight up 80’s slasher movie, and I’m ok with that. Michael Myers is way more brutal here as well – using scalpels, syringes, and hot tubs to dispose of his victims. Speaking of hot tubs…..oh my god, I just remembered why I love Halloween II so much!
Well obviously I was alluding to the infamous hot tub scene where we get to see Pamela Susan Shoop’s near perfect breasts (ahhh screw it, they are perfect) – but I wanted to class up this post and show a pic of her looking innocent in her nurse’s outfit. And speaking of nurse’s outfits, that is another thing that I love about Halloween II: The hospital setting. I don’t know why, but I find it creepy to have a maniac running (or walking briskly) around a conveniently desolate hospital. If the hospital food doesn’t kill you, Michael Myers will. Zing! But anyway, thank you for letting me gush about my love for Halloween II. Hopefully this year when you have your Halloween franchise marathon, you’ll appreciate this sequel even more and also appreciate Pamela Susan Shoop’s luscious hooters. Shout out to Al Bundy.
