Halloween H20: 20 Years Later
20 years ago, HE changed the face of Halloween. Tonight, he's back!
On Halloween in 1963, Michael Myers murdered his sister, Judith. In 1978, he broke out to kill his other sister, Laurie Strode. He killed all of her friends, but she escaped. A few years later, she faked her death so he couldn't find her. But now, in 1998, Michael has returned and found all the papers he needs to find her. He tracks her down to a private school where she has gone under a new name with her son, John. And now, Laurie must do what she should have done a long time ago and finally decided to hunt down the evil one last time.
Michael Myers is all in your face and shit brother!
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
How about you? Are you tired of my bullshit?
This is the film that brought Halloween full circle and not because of Jamie Lee Curtis' return to the series. The original Halloween inspired a generation of horror films and ushered in a new era for the genre. Now 20 years later it's latest sequel was now being directly influenced by the latest slasher film to influence the genre: Scream.
Scream is essentially a self-aware satire of Halloween. It has several nods to the classic including a character named Loomis and a major scene with most of the characters actually watching Halloween. While it parodied the classic, it was clear that it was also paying…
The Halloween series had went so far off the tacks and was in such a state of disarray after The Curse of Michael Myers that there was only one thing that could be done. Reboot the fucker! In a time when reboot wasn't even a word in Hollywood that's exactly what Halloween H20 was. Jamie Lee Curtis was brought back as Laurie Strode and everything since Halloween II was completely ignored, as well it should of been.
Michael Myers was brought back to his roots in H20. That whole thing about the stupid cult was thrown out the window never to be hard about again and Michael Myers was once again "the boogeyman."
For her part Jamie Lee Curtis did…
The true conclusion the franchise, ignoring the events of 4, 5 & 6. See this one for early appearances from Michelle Williams and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Right off the bat I have to say, I like this movie a lot, one hell of a fun ride, worth it, and I see the halloween series as, Halloween, Halloween II, and H2O, the others are just whatever to me, shall we jump in and talk about how cool this flick is...
John Carpenter should've directed this one, love him as a director, brought us some cool and creepy movies, he should have done it but money talks and if you don't give in you walk from the project...
The opening to this is very cool, you know Joseph Gordon-Leviit is in it, everyone has to start somewhere, but I love him stalking the nurse from the first one,…
Nice to see Jamie Lee back but this really did not need to be made - it's soulless, commercial product; much like most of the movies aimed at teens today. Also, Josh Hartnett sucks.
Well, at least Loomis isn't here to drunkenly yell at everyone.
This movie baffles me because the year before, Scream 2 satirized slasher sequels set at colleges and here H20 is to fall into all the cliches and pitfalls that Scream 2 exposed. This happened recently, too, with Cabin in the Woods and Evil Dead 2013. Change that script, guys. Someone called out all the trite writing in your scripts BEFORE YOUR MOVIE EVEN CAME OUT!
Anyway, this movie is boring and absolutely nothing happens for about an hour and then the last 10 seconds were awesome and then the sequel to this ruined those 10 seconds, so who the fuck cares?
Basically ridiculous. Because I am a sucker for nostalgia, the cavalcade of '90s stars made it watchable for me but it is pretty bad and nonsensical as a movie.
In my younger and more vulnerable years, I watched a lot of horror films, but the films of the Halloween series were among my favorites. Even though I can see most of them for the flawed little slasher flicks that they are, I still always find myself gravitating to them when I need my horror fix.
H20 is one of the strongest sequels to the brilliant 1978 original mostly because Jamie Lee Curtis is surprisingly good in it. She holds it together with her frazzled, urgent performance even when it falls back into standard slasher fare.
La mejor película de la saga después de la primera. Vale, me pueden las Terror Teen de los 90 pero es que esta es muy grande (dentro de la saga; dentro del género es normalilla). He aplaudido al final porque este final es épico y hubiese quedado mejor si no siguiese la saga y acabase aquí.
Cameo- homenaje de Janet Leigh con música incluida de Psicosis y la devolución del homenaje recibido mostrando a Sarah Michelle Gellar en Scream 2; Homenaje casi triple si me apuras porque no sólo con esa escena de CeCe se muestra la mejor película impulsura del género terror teen noventero sino que nos enseña a Sarah como muestra de actriz de género (Sé lo que hicisteis/Buffy).
El regreso de Jamie Lee Curtis y los sufridores Michelle Williams & Josh Hartnett son un acierto.
Decent enough movie with a terrible blu ray transfer. It's a movie that takes place in fall. Where is the pop to all those fall colors? Everything is so dull.
After twenty years, countless imitations, and forgettable sequels, John Carpenter's seminal 'slasher' pic gets a worthy encore. After Wes Craven's deconstruction of the genre in 'Scream', which blatantly cited the first 'Halloween' as its starting point and overriding influence, it seems only right that an 'official' sequel be made. After descending into mindless drivel, this series doesn't deserve a lifeline, and this film has no right to be as good as it is.
Picking up from where 'Halloween 2' left off, director Miner wisely eschews all the stuff since then, and gets back to the basic story of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. The real coup here is the casting of Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her role, and relishing the…
Probably the most entertaining in the original series. They had a great tone and some of the classic music. Kind of like the original with more of a SCREAM slasher feel to it. I liked that they brought back Curtis and Stephens.
My only issues were Michael looks as tall as a Hobbit sometimes and I didn't like that they seemed to ignore parts 4-6.
"The 2nd best sequel after the original 2nd. Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Williams, LL Cool J & Josh Harnett are great here. Also, the most action-packed, fun & most underrated of the franchise. Shortest too but worth every minute."
