As is often the case with horror movies, there are sequential movies that are all related to one another and we think it’s best to keep them together.  In the case of Halloween, the sequel is so connected that it literally begins where the first movie ends.  Jam and Fred discuss the sordid tale of why this film does not quite live up to the original, but why it is worthwhile nonetheless.  Queue up your copy and join us for our running commentary of Halloween II.
