Halloween H20: 20 Years Later
This movie jumped on the bandwagon of teen horror films post Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. I mean, sure, it’s a franchise that had started in the 70’s, but this time around it really seemed it was geared toward a younger crowd. And it did ride the heels of the others.
I am not a big fan of the Halloween movie(s). Not because I found it super scary, although, don’t get me wrong, Michael Myers is definitely a creep, but moreso I found it boring and annoying. And because I’m not a Jamie Lee Curtis fan.
All that being said, I have always like H20. And perhaps it is because it is in the same keepings of the Scream and IKWYDLS films. So, I was happy to rewatch it this year after not having seen it in a long time. And, of course, the fact that there’s a new Halloween movie geared for release next year (40 years!) did give me some incentive to see this one again.
The 10 Days of Halloween continues, and although I sorta cheated the last two days and didn’t actually watch any horror movies I did watch Stalker and The Walking Dead…so, that sorta countas.
But i made up for it this afternoon by watching I’ve Been Waiting for You.
I remember being so excited to watch this movie. It rode the coattails of I Know What You Did Last Summer (it was written by the same author) and it was super creepy – for the time…and for airing on tv.
I actually forgot about the movie until it recently popped up on YouTube as one I might be interested in watching. So I did.
It clearly wasn’t as good as I remember but it was still okay. And I’m sure it really would have wrinkled my feathers if I’d watched it at night, in the dark. Y’know,,,the way scary movies are intended.
Anyway, if you have the chance check out this little goodie. The full movie is available on YouTube.
