Product Description

Amazon.ca

Halloween is one of the great modern horror films, but as a franchise its track record has been spotty at best, painfully bad at worst. Halloween H2O: Twenty Years Later, directed by horror vet Steve Miner (Friday the 13th parts 2 and 3, House), won't displace John Carpenter's original but it might help you forget the films in between. Miner certainly has: the film begins as if sequels 3 through 6 never happened. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her role for the first time in almost two decades) faked her death and is now a single mom and headmistress of an exclusive California private school. She's also a secret alcoholic who lives in fear of her homicidal brother-bogeyman Michael Myers. Guess who decides to show up for a family reunion? The film begins with classic horror-movie exposition (the deserted college campus, Michael's escape, Laurie's waking nightmares) accomplished with some humor and style, but it's all setup for the second half, a driving roller coaster of stalk-and-slash thrills. There's little of the self-conscious genre referencing of Scream and at times the film is a little far-fetched--it is a slasher movie about a knife-wielding homicidal maniac who won't stay dead, after all--but Curtis transforms Laurie from a shrieking victim into an empowered, determined horror-movie heroine who's learned a thing or two from the previous films. Adam Arkin, Josh Hartnett, and TV cutie Michelle Williams (Dawson's Creek) costar, and the script received uncredited polish from Scream writer Kevin Williamson; Curtis's mom, Janet Leigh, pops up in a cameo. --Sean Axmaker

4.0 out of 5 stars good sequel July 14 2004
Format:DVD
I've always enjoyed the Halloween movies, but in the past there have been mistakes. However, H20 tries to fix that, by offering a good dose of horror. The beginning is somewhat weak, and seems like the director added it in to up the body count, but still you have to start somewhere. After the first two murders occur[ one being very gruesome, in which a character gets an ice skate shoved through his face]. The cops flock to the murder scene, and discover that Dr. Sam Loomis's nurse has been murdered, and that the file on Laurie Strode has been stolen. We then go to a prep school in California, where it is one day before Halloween, and Miss Strode is having quite a hard time recovering over what happened 20 years ago. She is the headmistress of a private school, and we meet her son Josh. Josh is very annoyed by her mother's overprotectivness. It doesn't help that it is one day before Halloween. Josh wants to go on a camping trip, but can't seem to persuade his mother to let him go. So, him and his friends decide to arrange a gettogether at the prep school after everyone else leaves, but Josh's mom decides to let him go to the camping trip, so he takes the slip but doesn't leave. Laurie then discovers that Halloween night that her sons camping items are still in the house and comes to the realization that Josh is in trouble, and her brother is coming back to get him. It is at this point that what we have all been waiting for happens. Michael shows up at the school. In this movie, Laurie finally conquers her fears and faces her maniac brother. Good acting, good writing, and all in all a good movie. I had to give it 4 stars because the middle is a little slow in some parts, and the movie entirely ignores 4, 5, and Curse, but some people may enjoy that.

I think that this is a terrible sequel. -Reason why it
just don't respect the previous installment's. -Which
made much sense. -but this one does not deserve the
kindness of it's; -hardcore fan's.. -They may not agree
with me on this subject.. -But I truly respected the
other's. -Like; -Halloween 4: -The Return of Michael
Myers.. -1988.. -and; -Halloween 5: -The Revenge of
Michael Myers.. -The beginning don't even make a lot
of sense. -Such as Michael finding her baby sister's
only file. -How did he knew where it was hiddon..!
cooed it be; -Dr. -Wynn; -from; -"The Curse of Michael
Myer's.." -I don't know..! -But it was a nice
try; -at the beginning..! -Their are several key plott's
in the movie that where key plott's; -of the terrific
"Scream.." -1996.. -Which did a good job..? -I've really
liked the new; -musical; -score.. -Very uppdatted; -and
very modern as a horror classic..! -But I was dissgraced
by the lackness of director; -Steve Miner.. -Ho picture's
are so green and god awlfull looking..! -With; -light
color's; -and dirt; -threw out the movie.. -If you notice..!
Even with the DVD'S..!!
I'm glad that he revived the dead; -Halloween
genera.. -But I've wished that he kept the element's of all
the other; -Halloween's.. -Which they made much sense two me..?
since this ignores them all..! -Steve Miner is the worst
sequel hollywood; -director..! -On the plannet..! -In my
mind..! -The movie begin's with Michael killing off the
slow poke nurse of both the original's..
Then it's off two; -Summerglenn California..!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Treat, no trick in "Halloween H20" June 24 2004
Format:DVD
In 1978, John Carpenter's "Halloween" became one of the largest and the most successful independant motion picture of all time. It was scary, clever, well acted, and entertaining. While several slasher sequels followed ("Halloween II" (1981), "Halloween III: Season on the Witch" (1983), "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" (1988), "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers" (1989), and "Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers" (1995)) none were as good, nor scary as the original. "Halloween H20" is not as good or scary as the original, but it comes darn close. Being often discriminated, "H20" is an entertaining movie with some good points including a good cast and some great thrills, but the only problem is its inconsistansies with the rest of the "Halloween" series. If you're scared and want a treat on Halloween night, then rent a "Halloween" movie, and you might find "H20" the one you like.
First of all, the cast of "Halloween H20" is amazing. Jamie Lee Curtis steals the show in an unstoppable fashion. She has flipped the character of Lourie Strode around so much from the original's shy geeky Lourie to "H20's" tough and serious Lourie. Now an alchaholic head mistress at a private school in California (the only "Halloween" not in Haddonfield!). She has a son named John (Josh Hartnet) who is dating a blonde babe named Molly (Michelle Williams) and whose two friends are Sarah (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) and Charlie (Adam Hann-Byrd). Laurie also is seeing someone (since her husband, who I believe may have been Jimmy from "Halloween II", and her are now seperated). The guy she is seeing is the school guidance councelor Will (Adam Arkin).
