It Should Be Done.

From the title, one would think that HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION deals with the resurrection of Michael Myers whom was supposedly beheaded in HALLOWEEN H20. Instead, this movie is more about an attempt at resurrecting the HALLOWEEN franchise for a new generation.

The movie starts off with a lenghty prologue that ties together the events of H2O. Laurie Stroud (Jamie Lee Curtis) didn't kill her brother, Michael Myers, in H2O. Instead, she mistakenly murdered someone else. For the past three years, she has been in a mental hosptial, preparing herself for the day that Michael will appear again. Well, he does show up and as a result the greates horror heroine of all time, leaves the HALLOWEEN series for the final (probably) last time. With the old generation gone, its time to start with a new. The rest of the film takes place in Myers childhood home where a group of young college students are hosting a Halloween web-cast. Most of them end up getting killed rather pointlessly in stupid fashion.

I was disappointed that Jamie Lee Curtis was written off. With her character gone, Michael Myers should have either hunted done her son or committed suicide. Therefore, even though it's not clear what HALLOWEEN 9 will bring, if the filmmakers are wise, they'll have Michael Myers hunting his nephew who is somehow involved with the Sarah of this movie. In that case, HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION would be a decent sideroad in this neverending horror story. Otherwise, the film will be just another failed attempt at freshening something that died in H2O.

Amazing or Awful…it is a question of perception
I remember seeing this movie when it first came out oh so many moons ago.  My friend was (and is) a Halloween fanatic and wanted to see this flick.  I figured I was game and said I would go see it with him.  Now when I watched the movie back 2002, god has it been 10 years already, I did not think to highly of this film.  Actually, I thought it was a piece of crap.       A decade has gone by and I have been adding movies to my slasher collection.  …

I THOUGHT IT WAS FUN
      HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION         spoliers      When reviewing this film it is necessary to look at it from all angles. It's another sequel, the end of a legacy, and has a great idea in it. We'll start with the sequel thing, yes it was another in a long ongoing series. And yes some thought there should never have been another film following "HALLOWEEN H2O". But I think they covered those tracks pretty well …

Now this is far from a classic and I would not put it at the top of a best of list or anything, still with the brain off it is fun. Plus it is a "Halloween" film and one of the later ones at that so why any one would expect a classic is beyond me. With that said still I loved the idea and found the performances fun for the most part. Plus any time I get to seeMichael kill off some people I am happy.

Halloween: Resurrection (2002) was directed by Rick Rosenthal (Bad Boys) who also helmed the second film in the series. Yet, he suffered the same fate as Part Two. He was a victim of re-shoots and re-editing. The producers were not satisfied with the final product so they ordered him to heavily re-shoot most of the film. Several times he was almost taken off the project. But he soldiered on an after a series of delays, Halloween: Resurrection was released.    The movie follows …

I've watched quite a few slasher flicks in my day. I've never been a huge fan of them, but the "Halloween" movies always seemed to be a step up from the rest. With that said, "Halloween: Resurrection" is one of the better sequels in this series. Sure, it's a bit silly at times, but even the silly parts work in this film.     The story is primarily set in the Myers' household on Halloween night. An internet-based entertainment company, represented by Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks, …

About this movie

Wiki


Number 8 in theHalloweenline maintains connections to John Carpenter's original.Resurrectionpicks up the thread ofHalloween: H2O, with poor Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) now in a psychiatric hospital and determined to shut down homicidal Michael Myers once and for all. After this prologue, the story shifts to the old Myers house, where a TV reality show has enticed six teenagers to spend a single night in the spooky home. Needless to say, things are spoiled when Michael barges in: "Isodid not sign up for this," sighs the young heroine, when the bloodletting begins. The mayhem is being broadcast live on the Internet, which makes the film a bit likeRear Windowwith Instant Messaging. The interesting premise is routinely handled, but that's enough to make this one of the better sequels in the series. Maybe they finally finished off Michael in this one, wink wink.--Robert Horton
