Halloween: Resurrection (2002) Review

Rick Rosenthal directed Halloween: Resurrection (2002) had an estimated $15 million movie budget and took in $30 million at the US box office. Halloween: Resurrection also came in 2nd place at the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards 2003 for worst film.

Halloween: Resurrection is the eighth Halloween movie (directed by Rick Rosenthal who also directed of part two Halloween II (1981)) in the Halloween franchise. This film finally takes the series in an entirely new direction. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie, but thankfully she is not Michael’s primary target. Instead, a group of college students have signed up for a contest to spend the night in the Myers house, and have the event broadcast over the internet. Of course, Michael shows up and shows them just how well he likes uninvited guests.

The Halloween: Resurrection kill scenes seem somehow fresh and new, done more stylishly than in previous films. Now we start listing the issues with the movie. The plot was a little weak and uninteresting. The acting from some of the actors was not good at all and served more as a distraction at times. Unless you are a die hard Halloween fan, stick to the classics.
