Writer’s Notion

“Halloween H20” has been considered as the most accomplished continuation of this “Halloween” series, and the movie that would deserve the “10” for its intelligence, potency, and conviction. If it were not for some of the non-Laurie sceneries earlier in the movie that fell less than what some other films have achieved at that time.

You will not be able to talk about this movie, “Halloween H20” without really discussing the effect in the “Scream” trilogy that had been at this time in the horror cinema. Their post-modern references, heightened feminist protagonists, thrilling and present style, and the sexy stars made the 3 “Scream” films really successful are being borrowed by the “Halloween H20” movie and are being used to the triumph of the film. The best single aspect of this movie, “Halloween H20” is the character development of Laurie Strode. Though it is a bit more of heavy-handed than the Sidney in “Scream,” it is aided by the phenomenal of Jamie Lee Curtis and it is effective, thorough, with unforgettable portrayal. The final twenty minutes are the first-rate of this horror movie.
