Mega-maniac Michael Myers returns to wreak havoc in the hit sequel Halloween II. This second DVD release by Universal is a slight improvement over the Goodtimes DVD release, sporting a newly anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen transfer. The transfer looks very good with only a minimal of grain and edge enhancement present. Overall, the colors and especially the black levels look well saturated and even. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround and is just above passing. The soundtrack lacks any true depth or fidelity, though some instances of surround use are utilized in a few of the front speakers. The bulk of this track tends to come from the center speaker and is free of any distortion or excessive hiss. Also included on this disc are French and Spanish subtitles. Originally slated as a "special edition," this Halloween II DVD was sadly bumped down to nearly bare-bones status by Universal. The only extra features available on this disc are some thin production notes, a theatrical trailer for the film, and some cast and crew information. Maybe in the near future fans of this series will see a third, and better, edition of this classic sequel on DVD.
