H20 vs. Halloween (2018) – Horror Face-Off

Arrow in the Head readers may remember our lengthy Face Off article series that I wrote for a while. That concept is now back with our new video series, Horror Face-Off, and the first episode of the series can be seen in the embed above! We’re embarking on a match-up that genre fans have been debating among themselves for the past few years; which movie is best in the battle between Halloween: H20 (get it HERE) and 2018 Halloween (get it HERE)? They brought both Jamie Lee Curtis back as Laurie Strode and ignored previous sequels, but which was more effective? Find out which one we chose by checking out the video.

Here’s what Horror Face-Off video series are about:

In this series, we put two worthy horror-related foes in the ring for an epic clash! Whether it’s a few horror movies, actors, iconic characters, franchises, originals vs. remakes, directors, or whatever else we can think of, it’s time to lace up and throw down!

Directed by Steve Miner, Halloween: H20 has the following synopsis:

Two decades after surviving a massacre on October 31, 1978, former babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is hunted by persistent knife-wielding Michael Myers. Laurie now lives in Northern California under an assumed name, where she works as the principal of a private school. But it’s not far enough to escape Myers, who soon discovers where she is. As Halloween descends upon Laurie’s peaceful community, a sense of dread hangs over her—with good reason.

Halloween (2018) was directed by David Gordon Green and tells the following story:

It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack by crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Confined in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked maniac returns to Haddonfield, Ill. – but this time she is ready for him.

That H20 vs. Halloween 2018 episode of Horror Face-Off was written by Eric Walkuski, narrated by Shawn Knippleberg, edited by Shawn Parke, produced by John Fallon and executive produced by Berge Garabedian.
