4.0 out of 5 stars Halloween.com, 1 Nov 2012
This review is from: Halloween: Resurrection [DVD] (DVD)
Halloween Resurrection was first released back in 2002 and, my God, I cannot believe it's been that long! You may find it funny that I'm reviewing this on November 1 - the day after Halloween. The thing is, I actually like to sit down and watch this film every year on November 1. I've no idea what drives me to do it; just a little tradition of mine, I guess!

Anyway, plot wise, this film is set 3/4 years after H20: 2001 and 2002, respectively. Fans will sadly see the death and retirement of the character of Laurie Strode; Michael finally prevails! Flash forward one year later to 2002. It's Halloween night in Haddonfield and six College students have been selected to take part in a 'Dangertainment' competition. The six people selected will spend Halloween night in the childhood home of Michael Myers. Little do they realise, Michael has come home! Moreover, he has been there all along!! What follows is a very good, entertaining film. Some people feel that this installment was pointless; I don't believe this to be the case at all!

At the time of this film's release, the whole idea of 'Big Brother' reality shows, Internet chatrooms/dating was becoming a big thing worldwide and so Halloween Resurrection picks up on this trend. Basically, the 'Dangertainment' competition in film is like a reality TV show from within the Myers' house. Given all of this, a fun piece of trvia: the working title for this film was 'Halloween.com', hence the title of my review!

I loved Michael Myers' appearance in this film - the mask is as cool as I've ever seen it, frankly! Also, many people disliked the inclusion of Busta Rhymes as a character in the film. Personally, I loved his character, Freddy Harris. He's not a bad actor at all and he certainly brings a little comedic effect to the board and there's nothing wrong with that, in the heel of the hunt.

So, overall, Halloween Resurrection is a very good, entertaining film and certainly worthy of a watch, at the very least. This is the last film of the original Halloween franchise (John Carpenter's franchise, as it's universally known). Given that, I highly recommend this.

Buy it.
