BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER.
20 years after first encountering the murderous Michael Myers, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) finds that adulthood and a nice job still can’t protect her from him. Curtis came up with the idea for this seventh film in the series, a homage to the original done in the style of Scream (1996). She is good as Laurie; the Myers experience has turned her into a paranoid drunk, but she is now the principal of a school and the mother of a teenager. The supporting cast is fun to watch, including Janet Leigh, Curtis’s mother… but the script offers nothing new.
