Directed by Rick Rosenthal. Written by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. Starring Jaime Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence.
Plot: Laurie Strode is rushed to the hospital, but Michael isn’t done with her yet
This movie isn’t quite as good as the original, but it’s not off by a lot. Sure that hospital is too empty for words and Laurie can’t possibly get out a scream when she really needs to, but realism is for suckers sometimes. And it’s only one category in a list of categories that me and DJ appreciate.
On a good note, the music is back, The Pleas is back (that crazy Dr. Loomis!!) and all the terror’s back, too. We don’t know how The Pleas survives this film, but he is back for the 4th one as well.
You also gotta love the fact that Laurie acts like she’s never shot a gun before and then shoots Michael right in both of his eyes. Two really lucky shots, I guess.
DJ gives it an 84/100. I give it an 89.
