Every Halloween Movie (They Never Actually Made)

23. Halloween II Pitches

Universal Pictures

We've already had an actual Halloween 2 in the form of Rick Rosenthal's continuation of 'the night he came home', setting up Laurie Strode in a hospital for the duration as she comes to terms with the events of the first movie.

The initial idea, however, credited to production designer Tommy Lee Wallace, was to have Halloween 2 play out in a high-rise building five years after the event. Laurie Strode is central to the plot, still understandably quite traumatised by her past, and is now attending college.

The Shape would return on Halloween night to do what he does best amidst high security and a decidedly urban backdrop - but Carpenter preferred the idea of going back to the same night more instead.
