Jamie Lee Curtis is back and so is Michael Myers.
Like the Nightmare on Elm street series, the original Halloween has brought many sequels. This being the seventh sequel and Halloween’s 20th anniversary – Dimension thought it would be great to bring Curtis back and hey, even LL Cool J is in it – but does the film work?
Curtis reprises her roll as Laurie Strode (though she went into hiding and renamed herself Kerri Tate), who is Michael Myers’ sister. Like the other Halloween movies, this one is full of blood, screams and the like. About the only good thing about the movie is Curtis’s performance.
After faking her death, Curtis is in charge of a private school and begins to have flashbacks and dreams of her brother. During a Halloween party, Myers shows up and people start to disappear.
The video is presented in 2.35:1 widescreen and is not 16x9 enhanced. Overall the image is clear and color and black levels seem dead on.
The audio is presented in 5.1 and works well. Bass and surrounds are used and dialogue seems clear.
The only extras are a featurette, a trivia game and a music video by Creed.
The movie is rated R and runs 85 minutes. The movie is recommended for Halloween / Horror lovers but otherwise might disappoint you. Curtis does well, but that doesn’t make up for the movie in total. The disc is also overpriced at $39.95.
