Critic Reviews for Halloween H20
While Carpenter's film was all about economy and a skilful use of empty space, Miner's busy compositions have a cluttered feel that is echoed by superfluous orchestral music.
I'm currently stuck watching the revival of a movie form that appalled me the first time around, then disappeared from view after a torrent of thoughtless re-workings that resembled bloody tape loops.
Halloween: H20 is as stylish and scary as it is ultra-violent. It brings back a stunning Jamie Lee Curtis in the role that made her a star and it's a work of superior craftsmanship in all aspects.
Now that they have produced something vaguely enjoyable, hopefully the film makers will let the series rest in peace.
Audience Reviews for Halloween H20
Besides a stupid title that has nothing to do with water and some bland characters who are just there to die, at least this seventh Halloween movie has some original moments and fun deaths, even if the build-up is much better than the payoff (which is rather dumb, I would say).
One of the best horror movies I've seen in my life. Its both entertaining and very well acted by Jamie LEe Curtis, and has one of the best ending climaxes to a horror movie I have ever seen
Now we come to a horror series that, in my opinion, long overstayed its welcome in the sequel and remake department. Halloween H20: 20 Years Later is probably one of the best attempts at a true sequel while at the same time being entertaining in and of itself. This time around, we get to know Laurie Strode (who has been in hiding) and her son, spending time in their lives before the eventual build-up to the clash between Laurie and Michael. Unfortunately, this film feels very tired and doesn't really bring anything new to the table. Despite bringing back Michael's sister, it feels weak. Michael isn't all that interesting in this one either and, to be fair, hasn't really been so since the original film. This is also yet another retroactive sequel that takes place after the events of the first two films and ignores sequels 4-6. This could have been a great opportunity to tie together the contuinity of the series for a change, but they screwed the pooch on that and made the selling point and ultimate focus of the film the battle between Laurie and Michael. The murders aren't all that interesting, the score is pretty lame and the overall length of the movie feels much shorter than it actually is. It's not too bad, but it could have benefitted from a little more bloodshed, a bit more of a build-up, a better actor to play Michael and a better continuity for the series as a whole. I have a feeling that someone should have taken this away from Moustapha Akkad early on and this series wouldn't have been such a mess, but oh well. It's ok for what it is, but like most of these movies, it could've been better.
