The Halloween sequel Halloween H20 is getting a steelbook 4K release to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release
Back in 1998, John Carpenter’s classic slasher Halloween got a “twenty years later” sequel called Halloween H20 (watch it HERE) – and we’re now further removed from the release of H20 than it was from the release of the first Halloween. Paramount will release a 4K Steelbook as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations! Pre-orders can be made at THIS LINK. The street date for the film is September 261001010th. An image of the steelbook case can be seen at the bottom of this article.Starring original
Halloween heroine Jamie Lee Curtis, H20 acknowledged what happened in Halloween II (since Curtis was in it), but ignored the events of the Curtis-less parts 4, 5, and 6. It also ignored Season Of The Witch, and its killer masks. Twenty years later, Curtis came back to Halloween again for a trilogy that would ignore every Halloween film except the original, H20 included.Directed by Steve Miner from a screenplay by Robert Zappia and Matt Greenberg, with some uncredited script work by Kevin Williamson,
Halloween H20 has the following synopsis: Two decades after surviving a massacre on October 31, 1978, former baby sitter Laurie Strode finds herself hunted by persistent knife-wielder Michael Myers. Laurie Strode now lives in Northern California, under a false name, and works as a headmistress at a private school. As Halloween descends on Laurie’s peaceful community, a feeling of dread weighs upon her — with good reason. As Halloween descends upon Laurie’s peaceful community, a feeling of dread weighs upon her — with good reason.Curtis is joined in the cast by Adam Arkin, Michelle Williams, Adam Hann-Byrd, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Janet Leigh, Josh Hartnett, LL Cool J, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Are you a fan of
Halloween H20? Are you happy that Paramount is celebrating its 25th anniversary? Will you buy the 4K steelbook version? Leave a comment to let us know.I was not a fan of H20
Halloween when it first came out… and it is crazy to think it has been 25 years. I’ve grown to appreciate the film over the years, but I won’t be buying the steelbook version because I don’t have 4K capabilities. I’m fine with the Bluray set.
