Granted, watching these Halloween movies is not recommended for anyone of us who have them in original form on AMC. Commercials interrupting during key scenes, abruptions that are jarring and annoying. I just do it because this is a lazy day for me where I don't care all that much. That said, I really like the opening of Halloween II (1981) where Michael is on the loose through the Haddonfield neighborhoods as police look for his whereabouts, while kids are still out and about. Very active and alive is the cinematography and Cundy is a godsend to director Rosenthal. The hospital is too empty and right the opposite of the neighborhoods. Plus it is implausible not to think armed law enforcement wouldn't be posted at Laurie's room or available as protection.
