We continue our Jamie Lee Curtis retrospective with Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, her celebrated return to both the horror genre and this franchise in particular. We have a lot to say about the film as it’s quite flawed and makes some odd choices throughout. The body count is low, and the mask changes partway through the film into something you might find at a pop up Halloween store. The film introduces Josh Hartnett and his messy hair baggy clothes combo to the world, and we see a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt get a skate to the face. Everything with Jamie Lee Curtis is quite good and she makes a traumatized Laurie Strode believable. Worth watching? Listen to find out.
This week kicks off our October Horror month in which we watch – you guessed it – horror films. Our criteria this year involved films we either missed, films we wanted to see, or like in the case of the film we picked this week – films that were available. That’s right! We’re watching 30 Days of Night, a movie with an interesting premise that will have you going “vampires kill me now.” It’s certainly a rough watch, but we have fun tearing it apart.
