Time to kill our Halloween darlingsBy NicolaiHartvig from London , 20 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Original scream-queen Jamie Lee Curtis swore that she would never make another Halloween movie after the second. She then returned in the 20-years later sequel H2O and surprisingly, it made sense. But like Michael Myers himself, Jamie should not have resurfaced for Halloween Resurrection.
White-masked Michael returns home for Halloween to find that the Myers mansion is infested with pseudo-intellectual college students doing a spend the night in a haunted house-reality internet show. Hes as unhappy about this as you will be watching it and thankfully decides to kill the all off. Garden variety murder-spree ensues.
Halloween Resurrection scrapes the bottom of the barrel in the Dimension Films conveyor belt of new millennium-horror. Using reality-TV as a template for thrills has been successful before think My Little Eye. But Resurrection finds itself closer to the delectable Blair Witch project or even worse, FearDotCom. It does have its very few moments, but the experience of watching Busta Rhymes do karate chops and use profanities every two seconds ruins every last ounce of suspense.
The Halloween series has been a tale of two worlds. The solid storyline, wonderful direction and chilling performances of Halloween 1,2 and H2O. And the superficial, mostly pointless and best-forgotten spin-off garbage of the rest, including Resurrection.
Halloween Resurrection is unfortunately a firm entry in the big book of no-nos. Weve loved the Halloween legend, but surely now is the time to put Michael Myers down for good.

nearly as bad as halloween 3By denholm ellis from uk essex , 17 Nov 2005this film is terrible, it has none of the elements that made h20 watchable, i would avoid this film at all costs.
Spend an extra 5 mins getting it right 1st time !By James from Brighton , 02 Nov 2005I was amazed at actually how good this sequel the 8th in the series actually was. It did drag on a little but had plenty of punches. It explained a lot about the Halloween series from the 1st one to H20. If theres any morals to this story then its ... Spend an extra 5 mins getting it right 1st time rather then waste your whole life trying to fix the mistake! Scary!
CHEESY ADDITION TO THE SERIES!By Marvel from Surrey , 16 Oct 2005but worth a watch anyway. Going along a sort of 'scream' view to horror. There is blood and gore, but also some humor. I found Busta Ryhmes particularly amusing.
not badBy a customer from england , 12 Aug 2005same principle as other halloweens but with different people.enjoyable though.
what the hell is this all about!?By daniel ray from sheffield england , 12 Apr 2005i cannot believe this film was even released it is the worst halloween i have seen.real fans of the halloween saga will be disgusted at this micheal myers just does not go off the way he does in this film.another thing are the film makers that stupid to forget that micheal myers got both his eyes shot out and has burn scars from head to foot.yours truly dissapointed dan.
