Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Blood is thicker than Water.
Two decades after surviving a massacre on October 31, 1978, former baby sitter Laurie Strode finds herself hunted by persistent knife-wielder Michael Myers. Laurie now lives in Northern California under an assumed name, where she works as the headmistress of a private school. But it's not far enough to escape Myers, who soon discovers her whereabouts. As Halloween descends upon Laurie's peaceful community, a feeling of dread weighs upon her -- with good reason.
Wicked good fun 20 year reunion of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers! Sadly the reunion is marred by the death and absence of Donald Pleasence! Whom had been a powerful presence in a large majority of the Halloween films!
I was extremely pleased to discover that this sequel totally ignored the subpar sequels 3 through 6!
Michael Myers may be a bad ass serial killer but Laurie Strode found her inner Lt. Ripley and kicked some major ass!
Great to see the Halloween franchise finally got its Groove Back!
This film was quite poor. Not even the Creed song at the end could redeem it. Would love a spin-off about L.L Cool J's romance novel career, however.
I haven't seen Resurrection yet but this is easily my least favorite of the series so far. The butt rock playing over the end credits even made this worse. I didn't think that was possible.
I can't believe we're doing this.
Halloween for the Scream generation. Seeing the ORIGINAL masked slasher be reduced to an imitation of what's "IN" at the time is painful for many reasons, not the least of which the fact that the Scream films are an homage to the original Halloween!
The story structure seems familiar to the Scream films because of uncredited script rewrites by none other then Kevin Williamson. So in other words the film is meta... so fucking meta.
Not only does it…
Ok then I guess. That awful H20 pun title is so dumb. It would make sense if it was Halloween on a boat or something cool/stupid.
Little babby JGL shows up and gets scared by an ironing board then gets an ice skate shoved in his face.
Mikey Myers is back again to kill Laurie Strode which also means Jamie Lee Curtis is back. Josh Hartnett and LL Cool J come along for the ride, sure why not.
Hartnett has a bunch of dorky friends, Curtis has Halloween PTSD. Bathroom trouble, Michael Myers the notorious car jacker. LL Cool J's erotic fiction.
Christ it takes its time to go anywhere interesting. Lots of Curtis moping around and Hartnett and co…
Rewatching HALLOWEEN H20 for the first time in years was a somewhat frustrating experience. It feels very much like a film of two halves: half Halloween reunion, bringing the Laurie Strode story to a surprisingly satisfying conclusion; half third-rate post-SCREAM teen horror jaunt. I'll leave you to guess which half worked for me and which didn't.
I must admit to being genuinely surprised when I realised that only three years passed between HALLOWEEN 6 and this. I'd always assumed there was a much bigger gap between them, and watching one after the other, you can definitely sense the impact SCREAM had on the slasher movie landscape in the years in between. Some of that is a blessing, particularly the fact…
While the return of the classic heroine is welcome and there are some decently earned scares, it’s ultimately a pointless sequel.
Still has grating performances (LL, Arkin, Hann-Byrd), but Jamie Lee is awesome and the ending (though spoilt by Resurrection) is epic.
Love Laurie vs. Michael but this film could have been SO much more. It was Dawson's Creek of the Halloween films in a lot of ways. Very 90s horror but not in the best of ways.
This entry does not do much to differentiate itself from other entries. The plot is forgettable and just plain boring. This is what we are working with as far as character background:
L.Strode had a name change, is an alcoholic, heavy drug user and still fears Halloween for some reason. Her son thinks having to stay in for one day a year is a catastrophic event and one that is holding back his progress to god knows what.
So Myers comes back to town (shocking) to stare again from afar while pillowy smoke looms in the background. A couple of meaningless kills later the credits roll.
Nothing happens in this sequel. Michael is back coming down from the ceiling, jumping on tables, picking up keys, and stealing cars. This is another stinker. Save your money for H30
Donald Pleasance is sorely missed, the mask is horrible, and the finale feels kinda weird (like there's a scene missing between Laurie walking away from Michael in the gym and her decision to commandeer an ambulance), but it's fun to see Jamie Lee Curtis back in the role.
The last half hour of the movie was cool. There was a lot of generic filler for a typical 'pop' horror of it's time. Jamie Lee Curtis does a decent job reprising her role, but that's about it. No redeeming quality about anyone, until they are murdered.
Hated this one. Lets ignore the last 20 years just because JLC wants to make a movie. Annoying people, annoying story, just annoying.
Man this movie was GARBAGE. Jamie Lee was great though, but what a terrible movie. Scream made people make really shitty horror movies after it's release.
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
