Okay, I'll try to be balanced here. This movie was terrible. I know a lot of people were disappointed in H20 because it is far too similar stylistically to the post-Scream slasher movies, and some because it abandons the storyline of Halloweens 4-6. However, I think that was the correct thing to do seeing as the wider audience is far more familiar with the Jamie Lee Curtis story, which showed in the box office for H2O.
So, three years later, plus an extra one because of production problems, we have Resurrection. And was it worth the wait? Far from it.
The Jamie Lee Curtis cameo was the most ill-conceived idea since they killed off James T. Kirk in a cameo in Star Trek: Generations. We had 20 years and three movies of build-up to the event that was motivating this serial killer, and they deliver the most insulting anti-climax since the aforementioned demise of one starship captain. And what's worse, it's the best 10 minutes of this movie. I don't lay this blame entirely with one party, because what was an ill-conceived idea was then filmed very badly by Rick Rosenthal, and then edited even more slopily in post production. Jamie Lee Curtis should have used her contracted obligatory appearance for something much more useful, like having Myers searching for her the whole movie and then she appears at the end. That would have worked much better. Besides which, Laurie's 'death' is highly ambiguous, given that she is stabbed once and falls from the roof, landing softly on the tree tops. I must admit, that is perhaps the best shot of the movie, but it doesn't totally convince you of anything really. After all, look at dear old Dr Loomis. He burned, he was thrown through a window, he was stabbed, he had an apparently fatal heart attack, and then something incoherent happens to him at the end of H6(!). And you KNOW he would have been in H2O if Donald Pleasance were still alive.
Anyway, moving along... to the score, or rather, to a mediocre version of John Carpenter's classic theme (although how many more 'variations' on that I can take, I don't know). I struggled to pick out any decent new cues throughout the entire film, or to be more accurate, any cues at all! Not a good sign. They might as well have just replaced it with some of Marco Beltrami's score from Scream, as they did in H20.
Basically, there is just no point to this story. The reality TV/internet broadcast thing was already two years past its sell by date, besides which it was done much better in My Little Eye that year. It completely undermines the whole story behind the Halloween movies, whether you prefer the H1, H2, H4, H5, H6 or the H1, H2, H2O, H8 path. After finally dispensing with his sister (until H40!) all he seems to do is a spot of housework, cleaning away an unsympathetic bunch of reality TV partygoers.
And cutting past the chase to the denouement, Resurrection also has perhaps the most impotent and predictable final scene in the whole series. At least the incoherent mess at the end of H6 left you wondering what the hell had happened. Not Resurrection.
If you ever wonder why they stopped making the Halloween sequels and went for the remake, then this movie is all the answer you need.
