Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998)

Michael Myers (The Shape) is back and so is Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode from the original Halloween movies. This time, the model is late 90s teen horror that all began with Scream. It is definitely one of the best of the series.

Laurie Strode has moved on with her life after 20 years have passed since the horrific events of Halloween. She has a teenage kid (Josh Hartnett) and works at prep school in California.

The Shape resurfaces and the killing begins as he attempts to track down his sister once again. There are many gruesome and inventive kills, lots of stalking suspense, and some fun throwback moments.

The cast delivers excellent performances and Jamie Lee shines as the badass iconic character. She seemed kind of wimpy at first, but then goes into full on warrior mode once everything starts getting tense. Instead of running, she fights back, knowing she must defeat the evil once and for all.

I have to remove a taco for the Creed song in the credits, though.
