Debaser Film

Halloween H20: 20 Years Later

I got interested in re-watching this after reading an article about it in the latest issue of SFX magazine earlier today. Coming after a few sequels that got worse and worse, this was supposed to be a proper coda for the series, while bringing back Jaime Lee Curtis as well (although it’s a coda that was followed by a sequel, Resurrection, which was then followed by the Rob Zombie reboot and current reboot/sequels). I’ll say that I ended up enjoying the last 15 minutes or so of the movie, when we finally get some good action, but most of the movie is a bore — my biggest annoyance in horror films is spending too much time on characters that you don’t care about, and you get this in spades (what’s the point of LL Cool J’s character exactly?) All that said, I’ll probably watch Resurrection too, as I don’t remember exactly how they ended this cycle.
