Laurie Strode confronts her long-time foe Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
The film bears strong plot & character similarities with fellow popular horror franchise instalment: Scream 4 (2011). Both feature the recurring female protagonist (Laurie Strode, Sidney Prescott) contend with the masked figure of their past targeting their 17 year old female relative (Allyson Strode, Jill Roberts), and their teenage friends. Scream has featured the original 1978 Halloween in their first instalment (Scream 1996), as various references to the Halloween film series. In Halloween H20: 20 years later (1998) Scream 2 (1997) prominently is featured, as well as references to both Scream films of the time.
