''H20'' was a hit with critics and audiences as it was seen as a welcome return to form for the franchise. While it offered a nice conclusion to the story of Laurie Strode, that didn't stop the suits from [[Film/HalloweenResurrection making a sequel]].

* MamaBear: In the original movie, Laurie had no qualms attacking Michael in self defense. In H20, she really let's him have it when he attacks her son.
