Original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis (You Again) is back and joined by Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks in the terrifying Halloween: Resurrection, another installment in the electrifying horror film series.
The reality programmers at DangerTainment (Rhymes, Banks) have selected Rudy (Sean Patrick Thomas, The Fountain), Bill (Thomas Ian Nicholas, American Pie) 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.

The only good thing that this movie did was finally convince them to stop making the movies (although they left the possibility open at the end of this one for more). No, I do not count the Remakes as a part of this line. They wasted Jamie Lee Curtis in this movie, then had Michael killing random people because they were in his house. When throughout the entire series the whole point for his killing is to kill is family members and anyone who gets in his way. Not that there has to be a lot of logic in a horror movie, but it is just a shame after they executed Halloween H20 so well that this was the follow up. About the only appeal this will have is to Battlestar fans who get to see a young Katee Sackhoff.
Aside from what it did to the franchise overall (kind of like what Batman and Robin did to the Batman movie franchise until Nolan came along) it is a run of the mill horror movie. The acting is about what you would expect, there was the gratuitous partial nudity and really dumb decisions by the characters getting killed off. If you skip this one you will not miss much.
I think the best thing about the series is Laurie Strode, and Jamie Lee Curtis has some of her best acting throughout the beginning of the movie. That's why I gave this not one star, but two!
They really could have made something good, but it was all wasted as soon as the real credits started and there was some lame plot. The camera angles are so confusing through the whole thing except for the beginning, and the acting flat out sucks (after Laurie Strode's part). It's a flat out waste of money to rent or buy this film, because I can honestly say that I won't be watching it again, although I might watch the beginning with the great Laurie Strode many times to come.
It doesn't seem like a real Halloween film should be, because it's a bunch of wacky college or high school students staying all night in the Myers' home for people on the internet to watch. The murders began, but you can't really figure out WHY Michael wants to kill all of these people. The reason he really kills people is because they're in his way for him to get to his family, but now, he's just going on a killing spree for no apparent reason other than a few people are staying in his house.
So I guess it would be a good idea to check this movie out because of the really great beginning with Laurie, but I barely was able to watch the entire thing. It kept me bored and yawning.
