Did you ever wonder what happened after Halloween: H20 left off? No? Well, some people did. And the good folks at Godbout Entertainment have answered the question with Legends II: A Halloween Tale. The story picks up ten years after that particular Halloween film leaves off, and it takes an angle you certainly wouldn’t expect.
Legends II assumes that everything we saw in the Halloween series was true, and then Hollywood took the story and turned it into one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. Really? Someone do something slimy like that in Hollywood? Never!
The film stars AJ Jones, Alexia Maria Orihuela, Anthony Cosmano, Andrew Niemann, Michael Santi, Fran Rafferty, Cooper Zachery, Jeffery Vazquez, Karla Dieseldorff, Sarieha Alsawaf, Katrice Gallaway, Jennifer Ayala as Laurie and Ralph Lugo as The Shape. Gerald J. Godbout III wrote and directed.

From the Press Release
Godbout Entertainment is proud to announce the release of its latest production a tribute film to Halloween called Legends II: A Halloween Tale.
The film picks up ten years after the events depicted in Dimension Films’ Halloween: H20. But there is a twist: Legends II conceives that the events in past Halloween films happened in reality and then Hollywood turned them into films. “Telling the story this way lets us keep the events of the films as canon but allows Legends II to have its own path,” said writer/director Gerald J. Godbout III. “It was a labor of love and craziness as we shot part of this film in North Carolina – driving ten hours to the replica house from the first Halloween film that Kenny Caperton, a fan of the franchise and overall great guy, had built.”
Legends II: A Halloween Tale will bring to close a chapter of the Halloween franchise that was started by John Carpenter in 1978, something that was abandoned when Hollywood remade the original film in 2007.
Legends II: A Halloween Tale Synopsis:
John Tate has been living as John Freeling in Orlando, Florida, for the past ten years. As Halloween approaches, John begins to dream of his half-sister Jamie. She comes to him warning that their uncle the boogieman has re-awakened and will kill again. She tells him that together they can put an end to his rage and finally break their family’s curse. Meanwhile Haddonfield has gotten an upgrade by a huge construction company and has been bringing families back into its fold. New partner Greg Trent has a lot to prove and has gotten his friends together for the grand opening to the new Haddonfield. In the end John finds himself with a choice: run or go back to Haddonfield and face the man that has changed the name of Halloween forever, “Michael Myers”.
