I know Halloween's well gone but I've only just recovered from my hangover so I'm blogging this now. How did I celebrate Halloween, I hear you cry?

Well, one of Liverpool's premier CAMRA pubs was hosting a German beer festival so I went to that and generally filled up on German beer plus one Halloween-themed ale entitled Headless Horseman. All in all it was pretty awesome.This was then topped by staggering home, ordering pizza, drinking Fosters and watching Halloween and Halloween 2 back to back.

How have I never noticed before how utterly pants Halloween 2 is?! The continuity between the two films is rubbish, the gore quotient is way too high, the acting is low-grade and Jamie Lee Curtis has been reduced to a practically silent role. I always thought Halloween 2 was quite good but apparently I was completely and utterly mistaken.

Luckily, by the point that I realised this I was completely bladdered and so it failed to ruin Halloween for me. Especially as I had no trick-or-treaters so I got to eat the massive bag of Haribo I'd bought them all by myself.

Hurrah!

    I agree with you there. Haloween 2 was the first one i saw and i liked it but having watched the orginal i realised that H2 is not very good. Still it's better than Rob Zombie's remake.

    Lucky you not having any trick or treaters. I had loads which meant no Haribo for me!

    My dislike of Halloween 2 probably wasn't helped by the fact that it was on an ancient Prism Leisure DVD with the worst print imaginable. If you watch it back to back with the Anchor Bay special edition of Halloween it makes it look even worse!

    But you're right, loops, at least it wasn't the remake!
