Long Story Short:
It’s been twenty years since Laurie Strode has been terrorized and almost killed by the vicious serial Killer Michael Myers, and she is still haunted by her memories. Because she is so overprotective, her son plans a secret party with his friends. It wouldn’t be a memorable anniversary if Michael didn’t come out to play.

Review:
H20 is a very great follow up from the original Halloween from 1978. Jamie Lee Curtis is as usual delightful, well, if you can say that in a horror movie, and the other characters including Michelle Williams and Josh Hartnett are a little mediocre, however, I blame that on the script, which was probably meant to be a little superficial, because that’s how the young generation is portrayed in horror movies. The violence or gore factor is comparable to Scream, so gore fans might be disappointed. I think it is more and more obvious, that movies from the late 90s added some more graphic violence but kept a strong storyline, while today many film producers think that over the top gore is enough. Halloween H20: 20 Years Later is a very strong, suspenseful and entertaining movie that brings back a serial killer from the late 70s, and doesn’t deliver a cheap remake, but an original and interesting sequel. Another plus: The ending gives you actually closure, unlike so many other movies from the past years whose money hungry producers would leave the ending as open as possible so there is room for sequels.

Rating: 7.5/10
