Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later
BanterFlix has teamed up with the Strand Arts Centre to screen Halloween: H20 on 35mm for a night that not only celebrates the film’s 20th anniversary but 40 years of The Shape as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s iconic original.
Released in 1998 Steve Miner’s feature is the seventh instalment within the series that saw Jamie Lee Curtis returning as Laurie Strode for the first time since Halloween 2 (1981). The film pretty much ignored everything that happened within the series after the second instalment, with Strode now living under an alias with her son John (Josh Hartnett).
She lives in constant fear that one day her psychopathic brother will return; when her worst nightmare becomes a reality Laurie is forced to face off against the Shape one more time as she protects her son and his friends from Michael Myers.
As an added bonus our screening will be accompanied by Rene Rivas’ The Spirit of Haddonfield. This not for profit/no budget fan film, which takes place 20 years after the events of H20, will receive its UK & Irish premiere at our event and is included free of charge with your ticket.
