          There was no screening. They do not even have a final edit. John Carpenter stated this fact on his facebook page.

            John Carpenter might be reportedly out of the loop on the post production of this and the test screening. He is only an exec producer on it. There seems to be multiple reports of a test screening and then even a message from a studio exec asking to not publicize the test screening news.

    Anyone who liked the sh*t show H20 should be ignored. Hell, H5 was better than H20. Give me an old school, simple slasher like H4 and I’ll be happy. Leave the modern horror, teeny bopper gimmicks at the door.
