Halloween: Resurrection (2002)

There’s a reason I was putting off reviewing this one. It’s a real stinker.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode for the first 10 minutes before Michael kills her. Then we’re on to the next part where a group of college students (a.k.a. fresh meat) are going on a reality TV adventure on Halloween. They are told they will be spending a night in Michael Myers rundown childhood home and the whole thing will stream live on the internets (because it’s 2002).

Things start out with everyone having a great time and oh, how spooky the house is. Then Michael shows up and jump scare after boring murder later, the movie ends suddenly and I am thankful for that.

The characters are so completely hollow that you are just waiting for them to get slaughtered. The premise is ridiculous even for 2002, complete with some of the most laughable tech I’ve ever seen. They spend 5 minutes showing off all the camera gadgets like they are the most amazing inventions they have ever seen.

There aren’t many good Halloween sequels and this one is at the bottom of the list. You can probably take a shit that is more entertaining.
