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…
Although J.L.Curtis participated in this picture (probaby just for the money) it is nothing compared with the original picture from 1978!
Liked it a lot.
Much better than 3, 4, and 5. The franchise should have ended here.
Even while working under Williamson-driven horror, Miner has remained admirably stagnant since those Friday the 13ths. His characters are still empty-eyed goofballs, and they're still pushing and running into each other for the sake of a million billion fake scares. The screenwriters offer intriguing kernels--like Laurie's transformation into Loomis, or the adult trying to figure out how other adults understand Halloween. But Miner wants very badly to scrawl "and then Michael Myers shows up!" over every page; the setups are treated with an impatience that still makes the grand arrival seem too abrupt. In other words, Miner continues to understand the weight of death, but not the images and parallels that once drove Halloween. He is absolutely an artist, but…
I've been looking forward to this because I was told I could just view it as a direct sequel to the original as if this is the second film in the franchise.
Anyway, Halloween H20 (20 years later) is about Laurie Strode 20 years after the events of the first film, Michael Returns to kill her and anyone that gets in his way.
I honestly thought it was good, not nearly as good as the original, but for me it was the second best in the franchise, better than 2 and 3. Reason being is that it bought back the Michael that I liked which was the one in the original, his build went back to normal, he used his…
I was never in to this movie growing up! I actually thought of it as the lesser of the sequels, because it wasn't constantly shot in low light, and because this wasn't a bloodbath like the other sequels. I was a retarded child. This is a great follow up. Plus the good thing is, if you're of the people that didn't enjoy Halloween 2, you can ignore Halloween 2's existence and have this be a straight up follow up to the first. It only ever references the first full on. With the exception of "You watched Michael burn", which then again could just be a metaphor for the amount of bullets he took. Other than that, there is no talk…
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.
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
