Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later (1998) - Steve Miner

It sounds like a good idea. Psycho slasher of Haddonfield Michael Myers has returned to have another go at murdering his sister Laurie Strode. This time marking the twentieth anniversary of the night that he had murdered her friends and those close to her. It all seems really neat until they unravel what has already been made. 
Laurie Strode, now going by Keri Tate works at a private school with her son in Northern California. She is haunted by the events that happened to her twenty years prior and has apparently reflected that into her son. He resents her and acts rebellious as a seventeen year old with his private school friends. Michael Myers eventually finds her and comes calling for a reunion of sorts. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie with Josh Hartnett, Michelle Williams, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, LL Cool J, and Janet Leigh to round out the cast. 
This movie acts as though Halloween 3 - 6 had never happened. Which is unfortunate. It puts your franchise in a weird place.…
