Masked serial killer Michael Myers makes his seventh appearance in the eighth installment of this long-running slasher series. Although the climax of the previous installment, Halloween: H20, depicted heroine Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) finally finishing off her brother/tormentor, the opening sequence of Halloween: Resurrection reveals that Laurie actually beheaded the wrong guy. Now confined to a mental institution, she quickly falls victim to her brother and longtime foe (played this time out by Brad Loree). Cut to Haddonfield, IL, where a sextet of college students is assembling for the production of an online reality show in which they'll spend the night locked up in the killer's childhood home being filmed by dozens of cameras and broadcast over the Internet. Presided over by fast-talking producer Freddie Harris (Busta Rhymes) and his girlfriend/business partner, Nora Winston (Tyra Banks), the players range from fame-hungry Jen (Katee Sackhoff) and food-obsessed Rudy (Sean Patrick Thomas) to rakish Jim (Luke Kirby) and cerebral Donna (Daisy McCrackin). As these photogenic youngsters hunt for clues about Michael's tortured childhood, engage in on-camera sexual escapades, and discover the phony props planted by Freddie and Nora, Michael arrives to stalk them relentlessly one by one. To complicate matters, Freddie himself is skulking around in a Michael Myers mask hoping to scare up some ratings. As the bodies begin to pile up, thoughtful cast member Sara (Bianca Kajlich) manages to survive thanks to wireless email instructions from high-school dork Myles (Ryan Merriman), but even the latest technology might not be enough to outwit Michael Myers. Halloween: Resurrection was directed by Rick Rosenthal, who previously helmed 1981's Halloween 2. The cast also features Thomas Ian Nicholas of American Pie and Billy Kay of L.I.E.

The beginning was good where sadly it was the character Laurie's last appearance. But I thought maybe it would fit better near the end, instead of yet another cliffhanger. Question though, where's John, Laurie's son? Wasn't Michael going to go after him too? The story is Michael goes back home but finds people there who are exploring the house and etc. I'm hoping for a Halloween 9 where it should end the series, having bring back the old characters while introducing a new character as well. Maybe it's just me? There's the remake and its sequel...not seeing that. Just watch the original and the sequels...ignore part 3...Happy Halloween!

Halloween: Resurrection is the type of movie you buy or rent to watch with a few friends on a Saturday night. When you don't care about the storyline. But if you are a die-hard HALLOWEEN fan like me, it is a little dissapointing. First of all, it lost the attention of the Halloween films before it. And they kill off the main Heroine, Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) or so they make you think. So what is the point to keep the series going? The storyline is nothing like the previous ones. It is a somewhat stupid plot. Since when did teenagers get so dumb? They sit there and watch the people get killed and they don't bother to call the police? What's up with that? The real fun part of the movie was Busta Rhymes. He is the only character they kept the life flowing in this movie. And the ending suggests that this might not be the last of the HALLOWEEN films. Oh, please, just stop them here!

I Think Alomst All Horror Movies Dont Make Sense Expesially The Friday The 13th Series But Halloween Reserrection Broke All the Rules Which Most Movies Dont Do. You Can Not Kill Of The Soul Survivor Its Just Not What Happens. But In This Movie wether You Like It Or Not It Happens And It Makes It All The More intersesting, It's A Great Movie And Yes You Should Buy It. Halloween 9 & 10 Are Already Going Into Production.

There are other sole survivors still left in the michael meyers family, so I don't know what that last reviewer was thinking....you still have Laurie's son (John, played by Josh Hartnett...who probably won't do another Halloween movie cause of his hollywood ego) and then there is Laurie's grand-daughter who is still left....so we shall see what happens in the next few...dont forget, pleasance always told moustapha to end at 22...so who knows what will happen and when it will end.

well i am truly a michael myers fan and i thought the movie was great except that they killed off laurie strode which pretty much ruined the whole halloween plot and like another person said earlier that how come the teenagers are so stupid i mean they should call the police and in halloween ressurrection why the heck did it take the police so friggen long to get to the myers house and if there was trouble the police would be there in a heart beat but in this movie it took the police really long to get there but they SHOULD keep the michael myers films going because i really enjoy watching these films

I've just seen the new halloween movie and i thought it was cool. For the one's who didn't like it, sequels are not supposed to be like the first movie. the opening sequence was hard to watch for odvious reasons. But there comes a time where the hero or heroine loses the battle. the rest of the movie brings fresh blood to the series. sometimes you get sick of watching the same people over and over. Getting new characters and a new survivor makes it more interesting. watching michael crush the skull of one of his victims is every halloween fans joy. some people wonder why michael killed all those people since they are not relatives. well in the first movie michael killed people who weren't family members. a true halloween fan would have faith in the series and not critisize it. the idea of the film is unique. it is something we haven't seen in a halloween film. donald pleasence the man who played Dr.Lomis said that the series would end on its 22nd sequel. maybe they will bring back laurie. sara moyer the girl who suvived the encounter with michael, they'll probably make her another relative or a revative of lomis. for those of you who don't know why michael is like this, i know the truth, but only time will tell and another sequel to reveal it.

Persnally, I think while it lacked some needed aspects, it still overall was a decent, watchable movie. It added a different twist than the past Halloween movies instead of repeating the same old scenario, same type ending. Instead of having him chase about some babysitter or relative with them killing him or so they thought at the end, it has him chasing after people who came to the wrong place to get famous. As for Jamie Lee Curtis, Laurie Strode, finally dying, I think that was the best choice. You can only have Myers chase her so many times before it gets stale and you just want one to finish off the other, and obviously, if you want to continue the series and let it evolve into a new battle with new people, it'd have to be Laurie who got finished. But...she still has her son out in the world, which can lead to a new, fresher chase if they choose that route. In the past, Michael had a tendency to chase those related. So a Uncle Mike scenario can easily be used. As for the kids being ''stupid''? They weren't necessarily stupid, they were just too adventorous and obviously didn't believe the Michael Myers myth. Not too mention, the last 2 Halloweens make it seem as if 3-6 never happened and as if he spent 20 years under that house. So if he hasn't been heard from in 20 years, what would necessarily make them believe he was still there? It wasn't the best Halloween, but its worth the rent, and wasn't the worst. What was the worst? Halloween 3.

i think your wrong right now lorie is the sole survivor case most likely john wont come on yes, but yes there is talk of lorie surviving her death in reserrection, so basicly there will be more.

This is the best horror movie to be released in a very long time. Halloween is the only horror sereis from it's time that hasn't been completely ruined. I highly recommend this film!

Halloween: Resurrection was not the best (are sequels ever), yes of coarse, but it was great. It is very much worth the rent, but it is fairly heavy on the ''F'' word. But you get use to that and it is over all a good movie. The thing with Laurie Strode being killed is not a disappointment, its a scare, think about it, Laurie Strode is like Cheif Brody in JAWS, only she can stop the fury, and when she is dead there is nothing there to stop him! It just leaves us dangling, left alone knowing that there in no Laurie to stop her brother. Over all this is a great movie, you really need to rent it, its very much worth it!

In my opinion Halloween Resurrection is the best Halloween movie. Plot 5: stars out of 5 stars action: 5 stars out of 5 stars Mask: 5 stars out of 5 stars acting: 5 stars out of 5 stars overall: 5 stars out of 5 stars.

ok now i love halloween as much as the next person but hey they are running out of idears. if theres ganna be a halloween 9 for heven sake get lorrie to kill him. halloween resurrection isent the worst halloween movie and thats not hard if uve seen 4 5 and 6 but i really think someone desided im gonna write a halloween movie in one night. all i can say is its becoming like jason movies BORING AND THE SAME OLD STUFF. The main problem is that micheal myers is killing those people for no reason and micheal always has some twisded reason. i think that if you had to watch a halloween movie watch the first two before you see resurrection

i thought halloween:resurrection was an awesome and very suprising movie. i've heard some people say that killing off jamie lee curtis was wrong. in my opinion though,i think it makes sense, because jamie lee curtis is getting old, and she's probably tired of doing these movies. anyway, i think eventually, someone will make a sequel. and if they do, i bet bianca kajlich will turn out to be related to michael myers.

I think this horror movie was great. There are people out there that say Michel is killing people for no reason well i guess that don't know these movies then. Michel is killing people because he was little a man was in his dreams and kept telling him to kill his family. He was also born in a place where the support evil. The symol on his arm means evil, and now evil has got him.

Halloween Resurrection was a good movie not all that scary like I thought it would be but it was good. I give this movie 4 stars...To much cussing but overall this movie was str-8 so for anyone who hasn't seen it go check it out.

I'm old enough to have seen the original when it first came out in the theatre. There was nothing else like it at the time and, IMHO, it set the standard for today's modern horror. Friday the 13th came next. The trouble is that all of the Halloween sequels (forget Season of the Witch, what were they thinking?) all tried to capture the original mood of the first. Sadly, you really can't go home again and this movie proves it. It has some good, scary moments but adding the Blair Witch aspect to the story just makes it sillier. Too bad they chose this one to kill off Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode character. Catch this one only if there's nothing worthwhile on Discovery or something.

I give this movie 5 stars! This movie was the greatest of the whole series. I love how the series has evolved over the years since 1978. I was not around to see the first movie, but I have seen it on video, and it is great! I also believe that it was wrong to kill off Jamie Lee Curtis, but O well. I believe that in Halloween 9 she will come back and kill Michael for good. This will be a good publicity stunt for the series if they bring her back, so that is why I think that they killed her. So she will be back in the next movie if all goes well and our wishes are granted. But, anyway, Halloween: Resurrection was the greatest horror movie I have ever seen!

I think that this is a very good installment in the series. It was awful to see Laurie meet her demise, I loved her character but I think that it was a smart move because the story of her character was played out so well in all films that featured her and it was a great way to see her leave the series. She started off as a shy, but smart school bookworm that had faced evil straight in the eye. In ''H20'' they gave her her character a poetic edge to it. Laurie Strode was a woman who had been dead for years after the original movie (emotionally of course!) In ''H20'' she was forced to face her fears and in doing so she saved her soul. That was something that was more important than saving her life. And in the events that followed ''H20'' the writers really managed to stick to the elements of who she was. In the opening sequence, which you have to admit was the most nail-biting part of the movie Laurie lets Michael know that she is not afraid of him any more. It was imortant that they included that in the movie, especailly since killing her character off, because it lets the audience know that her death was not in vein, and Michael had lost. Even though she died physically, her spirit would go on. That is something that Michael cannot take away! I give this movie such a high rating because of those very elements and because the opening had everything I was looking forward to, a good scare and great suspence. I liked the movements of the shape in this one and the music had really good classic feel to it. Everything about this movie was good to me, but Busta Rhymes' character really ruined some of the mood for me later in the movie so that is the only thing preventing me from giving a perfect score. This is my 4th favorite in the series and the other 3 being 1,4&2. I loved ''H20'' but taking the story out of Haddonfield was very disappointing, plus all the music samples taken from ''Scream'' was even worse, but definately a great story. I would definately recommend this film. Another thing I have to suggest is I find that with horror movies today they add to much humor to the movie which kind of ruins the mood for me as well, it worked brilliantly in ''Scream'' but ''Halloween'' in my opinion is much more effective when there are no wisecarcks and cheeesy one liners. Michael Myers is supposed to represent evil personified, and an audience can really lose that creepy effect when they add that kind of humor. Also, not meaning to be picky, but I would really like to see them manage to tie all the series up once again, I know that they made ''H20'' disregaurding events from parts 4-6 but, I would like to see them connect them once again. I think the reason they did this is because after the whole curse of ''Thorn'' they series became so confusing and they really wanted to stick to a simplistic story line when Jaime Lee Curtis returned. They could easily tie up all these events and make it clear that it was just a thory that Michael Myers was inflicted with the curse and then disregaurd that. Anyway,that is my review of ''Halloween: Resurrection''! I hope to see a part 9. I'll never get tired of this series simply because it was one that I grew up with and have always enjoyed. I heard that the man who wrote part 4, Alan B. McElroy, will be writing the next installment. It may just be a rumor but I would love if he returned because he really stuck to the basics of the original movie which was very simplistic.

This movie had a great storyline except for them leaving Lauries son out of it. This was a dissapointment, with all the one liners, they began making Michael Myers into a joke. If you like comedy with a little suspence this is for you, but if you're like me and like old school horror like the original, this is nice if you just want it to add to your collection.

I liked this movie. You can't say that you didn't either. Great actors, great plot, and great special effects. The only thing I can't get past is how suddenly Micheal Myers' knife is turned into a sharpened machete. The movie is nothing compared to the first one, but if you like a good scare, you'll like this. It was sad to see Laurie Strode die in the first part. I at least think they should have kept her for a couple of the next films. I don't know how Myers found Laurie at the Correctional facility. Some things stick out in the film that are really funny. I can't remember the last Halloween movie that had good humor. I think you'd better rent this before you buy it

I wrote a review and messed up with teh titles. So maybe void when I said I hated ''Curse of Micheal Meyers'' I meant he season of the witch! It had nothing to do with Meyers. But H20 was really good!!

Ressurection was a good film. I liked how they put the blair witch camera style in there. They had great lines and story. I heard number 9 is supposed to have the son in it.

I think Micheal Meyers is the best horror move there ever will be.

I was very disappointed with this film I think that it was the worst in the halloween series I have ever seen. The Halloween series should have ended with Halloween H2O when Jamie Lee Curtis chopped of Michael Myers Head, I mean come on if you were not really Michael wouldn't you say 'STOP, don't chop my head off'? or something like that? And another thing Halloween Resurection doesn't even have anything to do with what the whole concept of the previous halloween films were about. I would not recommened this film for anyone in my opinion Halloween should have ended with H2O.
