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.

Too bad it's only a smidgen better than the series' first first sequel, 1981's gory Halloween II.

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.

Now that they have produced something vaguely enjoyable, hopefully the film makers will let the series rest in peace.

Gave the series a breathe of some fresh air, but still fell short due to its cheesiness.

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… More
