Goofs

(at around 1h 13 mins) It's mentioned in this movie that Michael Myers lived under his house for 20 years, contradicting everything that happened in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, and Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers; however, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later worked on a continuity where the later sequels were ignored, continuing instead from the end of Halloween II. This means, that in this continuity, Michael Myers could have been living under his house for two decades. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Laurie Strode: You've heard of the tunnel. The one we all go through sooner or later. At the end, there's a door. And waiting for you on the other side of that door is either Heaven or Hell. This is that door.

You can't fault them for trying, but it's not good.
25 September 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The people behind this film tried to give audiences what they wanted, slasher movies had been big news, and the Halloween franchise seemed to fit well for that genre. The opening scenes I really liked, indeed they're the best part of the movie, slick, menacing, and that music is just incredible. Reality TV was still very popular, and you can see why they came up with this plot.

Sadly that's the end of the good news, from there on it's downhill, I personally disliked the story, they had no qualms about cheapening the legacy of the great Halloween. It's tacky, the production, plot, characters lack any sense of quality, only the music stands out well. The behaviours of all characters are nonsensical, you keep saying to yourself 'would they really do that?'

They tried, but failed. 4/10
