Halloween: H20

DOWN & DIRTY:
Horror: Twenty years to the day after surviving the murder spree of a homicidal maniac, a woman must deal with the killer once again.

NITTY GRITTY:
Twenty years ago Laurie Strode (JAMIE LEE CURTIS) survived a Halloween night murder spree at the hands of her deranged brother, Michael Myers. Even today she continues to be traumatized by visions of the knife wielding, masked murderer.

Now living under the alias of Keri Tate with her seventeen-year-old son, John (JOSH HARTNETT), Laurie/Keri works as the headmistress of a private school. At the school, security guard Ronnie (LL COOL J), keeps watch over the grounds like a prison warden and Will Brennan(ADAM ARKIN), is the guidance counselor and Laurie/Keri's secret love.

Even though Will tries to ease her worries, she can't manage to let her guard down. She's overly protective of her son John and won't let him go on a camping trip with his girlfriend, Molly (MICHELLE WILLIAMS), and friends, Charlie (ADAM HANN-BYRD) and Sarah (JODI LYN O'KEEFE).

THE ENDING:
John and his three friends decide to stay at the now empty school and have a Halloween night party. Just one problem, Michael Myers (CHRIS DURAND) is coming after Laurie/Keri and leaves a trail of bodies in his wake. First he gets little man tate Charlie and then Sarah. Will accidentally shoots security guard Ronnie, who miraculously survives. Michael chases them around the school. He finds Brennan and turns him into Swiss cheese. Laurie/Keri fights with her brother and he falls to his death?

The cops show up and bag his body, but Laurie/Keri steals the van with the body and speeds away. She sees that Michael is still alive. She slams on the brakes and throws Michael through the windshield. The van then crashes down a hill pinning the killer between the van and a tree. Of course he is STILL alive, so Laurie/Keri picks up a fire ax she brought along (always prepared) and chops his head off. Nuff said.

Look for the inevitable sequel, Halloween H60. Laurie in her motorized wheelchair is chased by her deranged brother Michael in his aluminum walker.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
The scene where Michael carves up Will Brennan (ADAM ARKIN), and Arkin just quivers with his feet up in the air....did I hear applause? EXTRA TRIVIA: Norma, the school secretary is played by Janet Leigh, Jamie Lee's mom.
