Halloween H20 movie review

Halloween H20

It is 20 years since Mike Myers was last seen. His sister Laurie Stroud (Jamie Lee Curtis) now living in California is the head mistress of an exclusive private school, fearing every Halloween may bring back her brother.

She now has a son who has reached his 17th birthday- the same age she was when her brother escaped from the sanatorium and came on his killing spree. Only this time Laurie isn't cowering in cupboards, she is fighting back.

A cameo appearance is made by Jamie's real-life mother, Janet Leigh the original scream queen from Psycho, who offers some motherly advise. Also appearing is LL Cool J, as a security guard trying to make it as a romantic novelist.

While the body count isn't as high as previous Halloweens, the way they are dispatched will keep you on the edge of your seat, squirming as each person comes close to their untimely end. The sound track building up the level of angst, keeps you expecting the worse.

Definitely worth a look
