He's unstoppable, unfathomable and definitely unsociable. But for film you have to be able to forgive the unbelievable. And in this film it gets really difficult. Halloween, the original film, was terrifying. The fact that this guy could move around very slowly, unchallenged, in a boiler suit and creepy mask was overcome by the genuine chills and special camera and musical tricks. And the brilliance of Jamie Lee Curtis.
Then came the sequels, which went from reasonable to bizarre in leaps and bounds. Halloween H20 finally put the whole story to rest in a way that was contrived, but at least brought Laurie Strode and Jamie Lee to a fitting end with brother Michael.
Now comes along Resurrection, which is not at all a bad film in terms of horror, but completely short changes all the fans of the original by including a beginning sequence that 'completes' Laurie's story by making her out to fail to recognise her killer brother, despite having fought him for the majority of H20, and also failing to kill him (again) in the first fifteen mintues of the new film. Her fight and success was the reason we loved the premise. Jamie Lee may have been pleased to see her role ended, but it felt like a huge cop out to me.
According to this film, Michael Myers won his battle after many years, which was to dispatch sister Laurie. But then he decided to go on to butcher a few more would-be starlets, because they came into the house. So what? When was he particularly interested in the house? And if he was so protective, when did people get in there to plant the dummy stuff?
It's not a bad film. It's just a travesty for those of us that had sweaty palms in the cinema watching the original Halloween.

Not half as bad as you may have heard. If Busta Rhymes had'nt been in it this could have been a pretty decent sequel. Laurie's death scene was nicely done i thought. The myers house from halloween 1 is painstakingly reproduced here, just check out the on set tour on the disc's special features section

well what can i say...its awful.
there is no pace,no(half decent) actors(except JLC for her single scene for Lauries demise)and well no plotline.
a failure...and surprisingly better than 3-6 but still atrocious...why they even bothered with this film i will never know...it is even better than the remake of the original which was a surprise.
H2O redeemed the franchise with good performances and fun scenes although there were holes in the plot it was a very good sequel...this should be avoided at all costs.
and to top it all off a '15' certificate to make this the tamest out of the whole franchise.

One for the completist this last entry into the original timeline is little more than a haunted house thriller - it has a few moments but they are few and far between.

The cast is adequate and it does succeed in some closure for one major character from the franchise. In a family whose members seem indestructable the first fifteen minutes were obviously in one actors contract.

The print is adequate without being brilliant but sadly for such a recent film there is little to excite with visual pop

The seller was excellent
