Lance Guest plays a bored teenager who lives in a trailer park but dreams of something more. To pass the time, he becomes an expert video game player and eventually learns that his skill is the ticket to adventure that he's been looking for. It seems that the game has been placed on Earth by aliens who need soldiers to wage war in outer space! Robert Preston is a delight in his final role, as the alien who shows Guest the ropes, in this terrific adventure for all ages.

Penned and produced by John Carpenter and Debra Hill (the same team responsible for the initial installment in the series), this smash sequel picks up right where HALLOWEEN left off. Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) is still searching frantically for his homicidal former patient Michael Myers, who in turn is trying to find Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), the teenage girl who somehow managed to evade him in the first film. With Lance Guest.
