Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION is the umpteenth tale about Michael Myers (Brad Loree), a canonical serial killer. A zombie with superhuman strength, he can't be killed, well permanently, and he can't walk faster than a snail's pace. (I've heard of Christmas in July, but Halloween in July is something that I think I could do without.)

The idea of the latest version is to mix reality TV with a horror movie. Six older "teens," Sara Moyer (Bianca Kajlich), Bill Woodlake (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Jenna Danzig (Katee Sackhoff), Donna Chang (Daisy McCrackin), Jim Morgan (Luke Kirby) and Rudy Grimes (Sean Patrick Thomas), will spent Halloween night at Michael Myer's childhood home, while looking for clues to his deviant behavior. Cameras will broadcast their every move live on the Internet so that surfers will be faced with hard choices. Will they visit their favorite pornographic web cam, or will they surf over to Michael's place and watch the slicing and dicing?

Before the festivities begin and before even the opening title appears, one of Michael's blood relatives from a previous episode returns. Since the relative is played again by a big, expensive star (Jamie Lee Curtis), you can safely bet that her part will be only a cameo and that she'll soon be toast.

The only fun part of the movie is playing the obvious game. You try to guess the order in which the kids in the house will be gored and guess who will live through the ordeal. I am proud to say that I got it almost perfectly, but, to be honest, it's not that difficult.

I know you probably have two questions. Why don't the Internet viewers call 911 when they see the carnage in front of their eyes? They figure that it's fake, and, besides, the 911 operator would just think it was a crank call. Now for the dumbest question of all. Will Michael be back? That does not deserve an answer.

HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION runs 1:29. It is rated R for "strong violence, language, some sexuality and brief drug use" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.
