With the thrilling news that #JamieLeeCurtis is returning to the #Halloween franchise next year, I thought now would be a good time to review her first major return in 1998's 20th Anniversary sequel, #HalloweenH2O . Laurie Strode has been in hiding with a new name and identity and tormented with fears of her brother, Michael Myers, coming to get her every time when Halloween rolls by. He eventually does track her down and a winner-takes-all (but not necessarily final) showdown takes place. H2O marks a return to the original story and ignores everything since Halloween II, including the fan favorite part 4, and focuses on Laurie's nightmares and bad coping mechanisms. While I enjoyed this movie greatly, there are a few drawbacks that make the movie a lot less than it could have been. Laurie's son, John (Josh Hartnett) is particularly annoying through the entire film, the replaced score used in #Scream I found to be distracting and not very fitting, how Michael grew eyeballs back after having them shot out is amusingly ignored, and the setup with the rolling ambulance for the final confrontation was absurdly random. That said, there is also a lot to love about this movie: Janet Leigh's #Psycho car cameo, a return to quality in it's scares, and, of course, Jamie Lee Curtis gives a very enthusiastic performance. Also, the movie has my favorite final shot of any Halloween movie to date - that was completely shat on by the bomb that was Halloween: Resurrection. H2O is a fine swirl that strips away the increasingly convoluted Thorn story of the past sequels and started fresh, and going back to the basic tale of brother vs. sister plays like a relief. Despite its flaws, I really like H2O and Laurie's 20th Anniversary return... Now it'll be fun to see how her 40th goes.
