In one movie, a boozed-up and torn-down Laurie Strode must face the white-masked demon from her past and save her family; in the other, a boozed-up and… well, you get the gist. These two reboot/sequels, one released 20 years after the original ‘Halloween’ and one released 40 years after, share a lot of the same DNA. But DNA is also the key difference: in ‘Halloween H20: 20 Years Later,’ Laurie is related to Michael Myers; in 2018’s ‘Halloween,’ that element of the plot has been slashed away and Laurie is simply the obsession, but not the sibling, of the Shape. Which movie did the whole reboot thing better? That’s what we’re deciding in the latest episode of ‘Vs.’ Host and Rotten Tomatoes Contributing Editor Mark Ellis is pitting ‘H20’ and ‘H40’ against each other across four rounds – Box Office, Tomatometer and Audience Score, Storyline, and one wildcard round – to decide which sequel deserves the ‘Halloween’ franchise silver medal. (Because gold, of course, goes to ‘The Curse of Michael Myers,’ right?). As ever, if you don’t agree with our call, feel free to stalk us slowly and quietly in the comments.

  1. H20 had the worst mask. Should’ve used the Halloween 6 the curse of Michael Myers mask. H20 is a good movie, but it feels too much like a scream movie. Halloween 2018 all the way.

  2. Halloween 2018 is much better than the lame Halloween H20.

  3. Halloween (2018) went back to basics. It had a killer cast & crew, removed the TOTALLY unnecessary sibling storyline, brought back the pumpkin in the opening credits, John Carpenter composed the movie, Michael looked his best, Michael had the most creative kills, 3 generations of powerful and smart Strode women and the overall athmosphere felt so eerie. The movie wiped the slate clean after many unnecessary sequels and the Rob Zombie's movies. Can't wait for Halloween Kills. 🎃

  4. I will forever hate the fact that Halloween 2018 just wasn’t H40. H20 was probably the first Halloween movie I saw, and being a black man – i love that LL Cool J survived lol. I love 2018 Halloween too, but apart of me thinks the movie would’ve been better if it took place after H20, and erased Resurrection from existence. Only issue with that is explaining how Michael came back from the axe chop, I guess that’s the reason they had to erase it.

  5. H20 is way better than the average dull 2018 film.

  6. Halloween H20. I love Halloween 2018 but its a ripoff of all Halloween movies plus it ignores 1981's Halloween II which is a shame.

  7. Alright. I remember when they filmed a part of Halloween H20 on Main St. in La Puente, CA, in the Old Town, which is just down the street from my house. Its no surprise, since anyone who know's about this town knows that it's a halloween town. Theirs a year around halloween store called Franciscos Halloween Shop and the colors that represents the city and the local school are orange and black. They also filmed a small part of a Jim Carrey movie called Man On The Moon and a part of an episode of the HBO series True Blood right there and most recently, the movie Bird Box; but the most famous movie filmed close by would of been Back to the Future. which an iconic scene in that movie was filmed in the Puente Hills Mall parking lot. although the mall is part of City of Industry, it bares the city of La Puente's name. Oh; and one of the neighboring cities, which is called Baldwin Park, also had parts of famous movies filmed their in the Kaiser Permanente, such as Congo, Starship Troopers, Face Off and Desperate Measures. Yep, those were the good old day's back in the 80's, 90's and I guess the 2010's. lol

  8. They are both amazing movies in their own right and universe but H20 had more better moments. Like when Laurie ran to the closet but remembered the 1st movie encounter in there so she faked it but Michael evolved also destroying the closet so quick. Or her learning not to trust he’s Dead when it seems he is. All in all H20 was amazing and felt more real. Even with her PTSD trying to move on with her life but she feels he’s around when he wasn’t earlier in film in window shot she saw him behind her it felt more emotional and scary. Plus her motivation to kill him when she knows he was finally around… “MIIICCHEAL!!!!!!” Chills ❤️

  9. Please…H20 is complete and total trash. It has nothing on the 2018 Halloween. Hell, there isn't even a consistent mask in H20, and they are all horrible. The main mask shows all of Michael's eyes…its super distracting…and it looks NOTHING like the original mask. And don't get me started on the godawful CGI mask. H20 also doesn't FEEL like a Halloween movie at all. I mean, Halloween 4 was a terrible film, but at least it FELT like a Halloween film. H20 barely even features the classic Halloween score! Instead, they exchange the classic Carpenter sound for a generic Scream-ish score with hints of Danny Elfman. The 2018 Halloween feels like the first time the REAL Shape has returned since 1981 and its the only truly good sequel. And the score rocks. I honestly don't see how you good be this off RT, H20 really sucks.

  10. Michael:”sees baby”
    ” sorry little guy, you have to be 8 or older to be murdered”

  11. I'd say H20 holds the win for me. It's made so good and I like how they changed locations. H20 is my favorite Halloween movie in the franchise

  12. halloween 2018 was good, Now we want a jason vorhees sequel!

  13. RT isn't credible if it gave Halloween 4, a low 29%. That movie is a fan favourite with excellent performances all round, especially from Danielle Harris – easily one of the best child actors ever.

  14. H40 is so much better H20 is too overrated!
