|Which is the better film?|
|Wes Craven's New Nightmare||Halloween H20: 20 Years Later|
Each is the seventh installment produced in their respective franchises and the most critically praised among the sequels at that point though controversial among the fans for their continuity dispensing natures. Both featured the return of key figures from the original films and marked an important anniversary for their franchises as whole. Each would center around the leading lady from the original film albeit not necessarily in the same form (Heather Langenkamp/Laurie Strode) as she tries to protect herself and her son (Dylan Porter/John Tate) from the emergence of the slasher villain who, in some sense, haunted her past. (Freddy Krueger/Michael Myers) After a hard conflict where people including the love of her life (Chase Porter/Will Brennan) are killed the heroine ultimately manages to finally defeat the monster.
