Halloween: H20Director: Steve Miner, Jamie Lee Curtis, Adam Arkin, Josh Hartnett
This is the seventh movie in this horror series and a 20th anniversary follow-up to John Carpenter's Halloween (1978), arguably the most influential horror film of the '70s, a film that set the standard of horror for the next two decades and catapulted the career of Jamie Lee Curtis. Newspaper clippings review the murders 20 years earlier by Michael Myers, including one stating that Laurie Strode (Curtis) died in a car accident. Actually, she faked her death to hide from Michael, changed her name, and became headmistress at a Southern California boarding school attended by her son, teen John (Josh Hartnett). On Halloween, with most of the school staff and students away on a Yosemite camping trip, John plans a "romantic" evening with several of his classmates -- his girlfriend, Molly (Michelle Williams); Charlie (Adam Hann-Byrd); and Sarah (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). Laurie, meanwhile, has her own date with school counselor Will (Adam Arkin); on their date, she reveals some of the secrets of her past life to Will. Meanwhile, masked Michael (Chris Durand) evades security guard Ronny (LL Cool J) -- and the nightmares begin anew. Curtis' mother, Janet Leigh, appears in a cameo role as the school secretary. The music score by John Ottman features orchestral variations on the 1978 score composed by Carpenter.

I thought this was pretty good, had really good suspense in some scenes, glad that Jamie returned to do another Halloween movie and it references the original. Hurray for continuity. Though it ignores the rest of the sequels where Laurie had a daughter but in this movie she has a son. It's like with New Nightmare where it ignored the other sequels and references the original. Anyway, liked how Laurie finally had enough and faced Michael, ending was good too. It would have been nice if the movie answered some questions with the other sequels like, why did Laurie leave Jamie behind, what happened with Jamie's baby, Laurie's sister and Tommy Doyle at the end of Halloween 6? Unfortunately these questions are not answered in the sequel...Halloween 8.
Halloween:H20 was both a thrilling and scary movie filled with several jump scenes and intense fights. Jamie Lee Curtis preforms a great and convincing role as a victim of the notorious serial killer Michael Myers in a brutal struggle of life/death. The cast also includes Josh Hartnett, Adam Arkin, and Michelle Williams who put on great preformances as they fight for their lives from the gruesome madman. If you're looking for a mixture of horror, comedy, and romance, this is the perfect movie for you.
I think that if people don't like this movie that they are smoking lots of pot. This movie was awesome and I love this movie so much it was so good.
I don't agree with 1 review some parts were scary But not all of them if you have it on DVD theres a trivia game do not do it it has stupid and easy questions like What Is Michael's tool of death A.A corckscrew B.Siccors C.a kitchen knife DUUHHH!A KNIFE! otherwise good movie.
This was the BEST HALLOWEEN becuase it have various things happening, not everyone who encounted Mike ol boy died. L Cool J was funny! And I like how they went back to the reason why Micheal is still killing people...LAURIE! It rules! This is also the first time I felt that Halloween should have been rated R, the other ones just have a little bit of gore in them. UGH! But I liked the whole 'he's comming back' thing. Like when is she is outside and she thinks she sees him but it is actually that ugly boy friend of hers. Now that was a character that needed to die. Too bad that Haddonfield was not tied into the story. It was such a shame that Loomis died...if Donald lived to see another movie, then I thnk the movie would be even BETTER, but i still think this moive kicks butt! ******PS. the reason why Jamie is not metioned is becuase the writers of H20 consisered halloween 3 did NOT exist and therefore Jamie was never born. Jamie is 'killed' the worst way possible in the sixth movie in case anybody wanted to know. I read from a website there will be a cross referance to her in the ninth one, unless they do a remake of the first one instead. **********
After watching this I expected more but it turns out that it just went into a different direction with the series. We find out what ever happened to Laurie Strode whereas Michael comes back yet again to take her out once and for all. It all comes down to the showdown between siblings. The only thing I liked about it was the not bad for a cliff hanger.
This is the second best in the series right after John Carpenters Halloween and the good thing about it is it ignored 3-6 well I thought it shouldnt have ignored part 4 because it really didnt talk about the thorn or the Man In Black. Anyway this is the 2nd best in the series right after John Carpenters Halloween.
Starring Jamie Lee Curtis(Freaky Friday),LL Cool J(Deep Blue Sea),and Josh Harnett(Hollywood Homicide).Best Halloween movie of all time.20 years later Micheal Myers comes back to kill his sister Laurie and anyone who gets in his way.It's also a good comedy.It puts the ha back in Halloween.
I thought this was an amazing edition to the series, but a couple of things confused me. In four and five the little girl Jamie is Laurie's daughter, right?? Then why didn't Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) say anything about her in H20? Did she die?? and who was the man following Meyers in part five?? Other than those confusing detaisl it was a great movie.
All I jave to say that i'm glad Jamie Lee Curtis is back and the movie is great!
i thought halloween : h20 was the best halloween movie in the whole series. jamie lee curtis is awesome! i also that it was cool that she was finally put back on the screen in the halloween movies.
A worthy sequel its a great addition to this series.
I think that this is the worst Halloween movie next to #3 and #8, because it's too hollywood and it sucks.
H20 by some is considered the best sequel and others see it as the worst. Honestly I didn't care for H20. For starters this didn't have the Halloween feel at all. Despite the flaws of some of the previous sequels at least I felt like I was watching Halloween. My other problem is H20 is just too Hollywood and is in the style of Scream. It seems H20 was more aimed at the younger horror fans rather than the older fans. I loved Jamie Lee's return and that is about the only thing I really liked. I also hate the fact 4-6 were ignored. I would rate H20 as my least favorite Halloween movie.
