Ok, I'd like to start off by saying that I enjoyed this movie for what it was, which is an 8TH movie in a series... you can't expect much greatness when it comes to that (no matter what, this movie would have been better than Friday 8 ) Anyway, it was entertaining, but of course it had it's problems. I had seen H20 in theaters when it first came out, but that was before I had seen any of the other movies (I was just getting into horror at the time) so I went back and rewatched it the night before I saw H8 (whcih was 2 days ago). i think that H20 gets a lot of crap because it has that girl from Dawson's Creek, but I felt it was a decent sequel and left a good ending, but Mustapha likes his money, so he had them film the flashback stuff for H8 THEN.. so that logic of the other paramedic has been in the can for around 4 years now.... that was Steve Minor at work folks, so you can't really blame the director of H8. I think what might have added to my enjoyment of H8 though is the fact that I saw it at a drive-in with my girlfriend, which really heightened the experience. If the DVD is not ridiculously expensive like most other Disney DVDs, I will pick it up and hopefully it will have some of the cut scenes like Tyra's death (it was shot, just cut from the film).
