Halloween: Resurrection is just an embarrassment. They couldn’t resist making another sequel after Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. A movie that by all accounts should have been a proper end to the franchise. Halloween: Resurrection came out in the early 2000’s and had the radical idea to make it about an online reality show. With a group of disposable sexed up teens being hooked up to webcams that connect them to the internet. So Busta Rhymes and Tyra Banks run the show of course. That will in no way date the movie.
The idea of an online reality show where you enter the house where a killer lived makes no logical sense. Then again I can sadly see this idea possibly happening in real life. It just so happens that Michael Myers was there in time to kill them. The kills have gotten dumber with a lot more over the top deaths than we’re used to from this franchise. While the climax is just ridiculous. The series hits rock bottom the second Busta Rhymes fights Michael using karate. Capped off with the cringe inducing line “Trick or treat, motherf***er.”
The opening is the only thing in the movie that’s worth watching. Featuring Jamie Lee Curtis returning for the “final time” as Laurie Strode. Her defeat of Michael is annoyingly retconned so that he wasn’t the one she killed. SPOILER ALERT! Michael kills her about 5 minutes into the movie. Giving fans no reason to care about what happens next in this timeline. At the time, Halloween: Resurrection was finally the movie bad enough to kill the franchise that should have ended a long time ago.
