Did You Know?

Trivia

The original treatment for "H20" by Kevin Williamson was much more sparse on character detail and had a radically different ending. In the place of Nancy Stephens' character of Marion Whittington in the trademark "Williamson opener", a new character was originally to be created, "Rachel Loomis", apparently Dr. Sam Loomis' daughter, who would have the computer files on Laurie Strode/Keri Tate on her home computer. Rachel would come home to discover her computer on, and would swiftly be dispatched by the Shape. Also, in the climax of the treatment, there is a massive helicopter and bus chase sequence, culminating in the downed helicopter spinning out of control and decapitating the Shape with its out of control rotor a la Mission: Impossible (1996).

Where the heck?
6 September 2018 | by anthonyturnoSee all my reviews

Do all the haters come from? This is a 7.5 out of 10. The best one since the first one. Maybe it's because they aren't used to having an actual plot. Sure it's watered down compare to the first but it's way better than any of the sequels including Halloween 2
