To reunite Halloween 2 and H20 was an idea that needed to be done.
I saw this edit with the purist soundtrack. It was a good.
Of course there is the “20 years later” text in the middle of the movie but I think that in this case it works well,
I prefer that simple way to tell the story than constant flashbacks that would have killed the tension.
(I liked the flashbacks of Loomis with young M.M though)
