Product Description

Halloween H20: Twenty Years Lat


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 --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

Whenever you see an old Miramax/Dimension release with the Echo Bridge stamp, please stay away from it, even though the price may seem interesting, trust me, the release in itself is far from worth your hard-earned cash.

Echo Bridge simply takes the available horror titles in the library, puts it on a cheap 25GB Blu-Ray and voila, you have an Echo Bridge release, even though the cover is entirely different from other releases, this is their number one argument of sale: no special features, no nothing. Bare-bone editions as they can be, I would suggest you to stay with the Alliance Blu-Ray titles until another company takes the matter more seriously, which could mean a lot of time.

And keep the old DVDs as well, because the special features have all been washed away.

If you need to be convinced, try and look at The Crow: City of Angels. Not only is the transfer atrocious, they didn't even put the first movie out. They went for the sequel.

So in closing, stay away from the Echo Bridge editions, unless you are looking for a very cheap type of entertainment. In that case, that's all you will get.

With all the bad reviews they get, maybe they will either shut down or add to the titles in the near future.

(NOTE: This review was originally posted on the U.S.-based Amazon.com website.)

Certainly, after watching "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers", I had little interest in ever seeing Michael Myers again, who over the course of six films has transformed from a mysteriously eerie serial killer into a monolithic robotic Druid (!) henchman. Amazingly, the next film in the franchise would redeem the "Halloween" name, a rarity for a sequel so late in the series. In fact, "Halloween H20" is probably the best sequel in the Halloween series (I confess to having a soft spot for "Halloween 2", but I freely admit the film is problematic). Simply put, "H20" is the sequel fans had been waiting many years to see... even if some (like me) didn't know it.

The decision was made for "H20" to ignore the last series of sequels and act as a direct sequel to "Halloween II"; it was a wise decision, freeing the series from the various inane story lines and C-List characters that accumulatively dragged down the series over the years. Pleasingly, "H20" manages to both scare and entertain in a way that I thought just wasn't possible for the film series anymore. Finely directed by old school slasher film director Steve Miner (doing a better job with "H20" than he ever did on any of his 1980's "Friday The 13th" films), the film is smartly cast, has good production values, and is a blessed with a tight, straightforward plot. Jamie Lee Curtis gives a great lead performance, and the ending is the most satisfying of all the Halloween films (and that includes the original).

Special bonus points for "H20": it's the first sequel since "Halloween II" to get "The Shape" right!

maybe it's just me,but i found this Halloween movie lacking.the idea
was a good one,having this one take place twenty years after the events
in the first and second films.all the sequels in between are
ignored.however,i didn't find that much else to like about it.for one
thing,i found the first hour quite slow.very little happens up to that
point.plus,i thought the acting was below par in this one,even for this
genre.but the biggest thing i realized,was that the character of
Michael Myers does not inspire fear in this one.in fact,i found him
kind of laughable.maybe it's just because there have been so many
psycho villains since then,that the character isn't really that
different from the rest.the point is,he just doesn't have much of an
impact.i also thought some of the dialogue was pretty bad in this
one.but the biggest thing for me,is that the way things happened in
this movie just weren't realistic.i just didn't see it
happening.despite all that,i still think it was a better film than the
last one,part 6:The curse of Michael Myers.for me Halloween H2O:Twenty
Years Later is a 2.5/5

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.
