Our Score
John Carpenter's classic 1978 chiller gets a 1990s makeover, although in the hands of director Steve Miner the emphasis here is still firmly on frights rather than in-jokes. Jamie Lee Curtis, back in the role that made her name, is now a recovering alcoholic and headteacher at an exclusive boarding school. The problem is her murderous and seemingly indestructible brother is keen to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his original massacre. The older and wiser Curtis steals the show from the teenage TV pin-ups (Joseph Gordon-Levitt in an early film role is the obligatory "big name" killed off before the opening credits), but Miner's direction is merely efficient and lacks Carpenter's assured touch.

Summary

Concluded.
