Product Description

Original HALLOWEEN star Jamie Lee Curtis (HALLOWEEN: H2O, TRUE LIES) is back and joined by Busta Rhymes (SHAFT) and Tyra Banks (COYOTE UGLY) in the terrifying HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION -- the latest in this electrifying horror film series! The reality programmers at DangerTainment (Rhymes, Banks) have selected Rudy (Sean Patrick Thomas -- SAVE THE LAST DANCE), Bill (Thomas Ian Nicholas -- AMERICAN PIE 1&2), and a group of thrill-seeking teenagers to spend one fun-filled night in the childhood home of serial killer Michael Myers. But the planned live broadcast turns deadly when their evening of excitement becomes a night of horror as Michael himself decides to crash the party!

Number 8 in the Halloween line maintains connections to John Carpenter's original. Resurrection picks up the thread of Halloween: 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: "I so did 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 like Rear Window with 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

1.0 out of 5 stars What? February 9, 2004
Ya know ... I know that saying about "20/20 in hindsight," but this whole franchise really could have been awesome. It frustrates me to no end that ever since Michael Myers returned from his hiatus in Halloween III, every single movie has been plagued by wildly glaring problems of continuity. The production team at Dimension has seemingly NEVER managed to conquer the simple task of making one movie lead into another ... until H2O.

When Jamie Lee returned to the franchise, I FINALLY thought "OK, now we're getting somewhere." The character of Laurie Strode's son was introduced and played with a great deal of poise by Josh Hartnett (in one of his earlier roles). Past problems aside, we FINALLY had some real substance to solidify the whole idea that Michael's motivation was to destroy his bloodline.

So what happens in the start of Resurrection? Jamie Lee gets killed off and her son's character isn't reintroduced. Right out the window, in the first fifteen minutes, was everything that H2O managed to accomplish. So what were we left with? I dunno, you tell me. At this stage, Halloween has turned, pretty much, into the same movie as every other mid-to-late-eighties slasher. After Resurrection, I'm absolutely convinced that this whole franchise, officially, has no creativity left and absolutely nothing new or interesting to offer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after previous entry in series November 6, 2002
The premise seems promising at first. A group of college students is selected to act out an internet play at the home of killer Michael Myers...This Michael Myers is the deadly character who haunted previous HALLOWEEN movies and is presumed dead by the beginning of this one. The premise is not bad. And there comes a time in the movie when, hardly surprisingly, the notorius villian turns out to be alive after all. When the students discover that Myers is still alive and not only kicking but still wreaking deadly terror in the house where he grew up, things pick up a little. From there through the decently entertaining climax, the movie has the makings of a not-so-bad thriller. But the problem is in the middle, between the set-up and the climax. There it wallows in typical teen-movie cliches -- virile wisecracking males, and females who resist them in equally cliched wisecracking manner...the only memorable thing about the move is was pretty boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage July 14, 2006
I absolutely love the original Halloween, and I love all of the sequals.. Except for this on, it's pure trash.

What is going on with some of these horror series, why are they getting so horribly butchered, it is a direct slap in the face to actual fans of the series. Kind of like the latest Child's Play, what a joke!

I decided to sit and watch the entire DVD, and it did not get any better, as I watched this, this... well what should I call it, this embarrasment addition to the series I ended up feeling steady incrimates of sheer boredom.

This one is just a money grab, and they are bound to attract more people to watch it that would not otherwise due to the rapper in this film. I think it was Rhymes or something like that but I don't care to check because it is not worth it and I don't care.

I refuse to truly associate this with the rest of the Halloween series, avoid this if you have not seen it, it is not worth your time, and you may just get offended by how terrible it is and at the same time harbors the Halloween name. I am lucky I rented it because if I bought it I would have just burned it, like the producers must have been thinking when they made this, "Hey, lets burn the series, why not? We will get new fans anyway because of the new 'actors'.." *Actors? more like hacks..*

I'm a big Michael Myers fan from way back when, and I have to admit I was rather disappointed with this eighth entry in the hallowed Halloween series. The whole concept of having six young people spend a night in Michael Myers' old house on Halloween night is brilliant albeit not quite original, but even this "reality" aspect of the film could have been improved upon. Then you have a number of plot elements that exist for no apparent reason whatsoever, as the issues these raised initially are left blowing in the wind. Worst of all is the beginning of the film, as it did much to ruin whatever good might follow in its wake once the filmmakers got to the new and refreshing presentation of everyone's favorite masked killer doing his thing. It is hard to say what I mean without giving important plot elements away, so all I will say is that the opening scenes in this movie insult the intelligence of Halloween's core audience and then quickly proceed to spit upon and kick the very essence of what Halloween used to be about. I think the opening climax is borne of a very bad decision, and the scene itself is almost laughably pathetic. I daresay many loyal Halloween fans will share my dissatisfaction in this regard.
Once we finally get to the live Internet broadcast of the six young people inside Michael Myers' old house, the movie succeeds fairly well. The webcam aspect of the cinematography gives this film a special look and feel, and the sudden appearances of Michael take on added effectiveness. There is one particularly good moment wherein the sudden appearance of the white mask from out of the shadows has a vintage Frankenstein feel to it.

I saw this with my now dearly departed father in 2002.

I found it suspenseful and intense in certain parts I also did not mind the Michael in this movie. Read more

sequels like this are the reason the franchise gets remade.
I couldn't agree more. the "Scream" mark is so evident. Rob Zombie did a great job on rebooting the story from the beginning. Let's him keep the good job going, if he can.
