Halloween II

 (1981)

Halloween II Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Starting right off from the original classic "Halloween", Dr. Loomis and Sheriff Brackett are again searching the dark streets for Micheal Myers but meanwhile Laurie Strode is taken to the Haddenfield Hospital where she is still not safe. Micheal, being shot by Dr. Loomis six times, is also still looming in the shadows hunting for her yet this time, there is a reason why he is after her.

For more about Halloween II and the Halloween II Blu-ray release, see Halloween II Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Halloween II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

When it comes to catalog releases, Universal has a reputation for re-purposing outdated masters plagued by texture-damning noise reduction and egregious edge enhancement. Fortunately, Halloween II seems to have escaped (largely) unscathed. I didn't notice any signs of substantial smearing, ringing or other symptoms of overzealous noise reduction and EE, and haphazard digital manipulation and unsightly encoding anomalies aren't an issue. It's still wise to approach the sequel's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer with appropriate expectations -- only so much can be done with Dean Cundey's intermittently soft, shadow-slathered photography -- but the presentation's highs outnumber its lows. Colors and skintones are pleasing and well-saturated, the ol' red sticky stuff packs particular punch, black levels are satisfying throughout, and fine detail is, by and large, surprisingly crisp, clean and precisely resolved. Moreover, artifacting and banding are nowhere to be found, grain is intact and unobtrusive, and aberrant noise and troubling crush are kept to a bare minimum. Again, there are a variety of shots and less-exacting scenes that will no doubt disappoint those hoping for a razor-sharp image, but those who understand the inherent limitations of the film's source won't criticize Universal's efforts. Much. The only issue, or rather issues of note? White specks, dark pocks, tiny burns, split-second squiggles (for lack of a better term), faint horizontal blue splotches and other nicks and scratches pepper the original print material, and border on distracting every now and then. For a thirty-year-old horror sequel, Rosenthal's frightfest nevertheless looks pretty good. It outclasses its DVD counterparts and makes the price of upgrading tempting.


Halloween II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Halloween II hobbles onto Blu-ray without a single lossless audio mix. Instead, it offers two lossy options: a hit-or-miss 768kbps DTS Processed 5.1 surround track (that never quite capitalizes on the soundscape's potential) and a flat but reasonably faithful DTS 2.0 track. Dialogue is clear and intelligible in each one, but voices sometimes sound tinny, muffled or, in the worst of cases, both. Even so, the stereo track is the way to go, especially for purists; the processed 5.1 mix is too uneven to provide a very nuanced or immersive experience. Rear speaker activity is decent but unreliable, scrambling to snatch up obvious effects and music cues while leaving others languishing at the front of the soundfield. Low-end output is a tad disappointing as well. While the LFE channel certainly lumbers in for many a kill, it lacks finesse and power, and ultimately leaves something to be desired. It's serviceable; I'll give it that, but I wouldn't give it much more. I recommend sticking with the stereo mix. Unless lossy audio is a deal breaker, of course...
