One last warning.... <H3 ALIGN="center">MAJOR SPOILERS!!!!</H3> Okay, I'm cleared to go. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . At the beginning of H:R, Laurie Strode is in a mental institution. These two nurses beginning discussing Laurie and her maniac brother, Michael Myers. At this point we see flashbacks to H20 where we learn that at some point towards the end of the movie, Michael switches outfits with a police officer. Michael crushes the officer's throat, not enough to kill him but enough so the office cannot talk. This explains why the police officer didn't say "Yo, Laurie bitch, I aint Michael!!!!" when he climbed out of the body bag. So as it turns out, Laurie decapitated a copy, which apparently explains why she's in a mental institution. Okay, shitty enough yet? No? Okay, here's some more. Laurie is in this mental institution and she hardly ever talks. It's been 3 years since her last encounter with Michael, but she's knows he's alive and she knows he's going to come back for her. While everyone else thinks Laurie is being good and stashing her medication, she's really stuffing the pills inside of this teddy bear of some sort. Next, Michael shows up and starts killing off some of the staffers and security guards. At this point I'm thinking that I may accidentally be watching Halloween 2. No, I'm not, this is much worse because there's absolutely no tention build up here (there was at least some in Halloween 2). And it's unfortunate because this is where it would have worked best. After a short chase through the hospital, there's a showdown on the roof top between Laurie and Michael. Laurie captures Michael in this trap she rigged. She now has him hanging upside down by one leg, several feet off the ground. Michael lost his knife; Laurie has the perfect chance to kill him. She starts to cut the rope he's hanging by, which would send him crashing into the pavement hundreds of feet below. Michael starts fiddling with his mask, at which point Laurie gets this premonition that ONCE AGAIN this isn't really Michael. OF COURSE, it's obviously another poor police officer that was dupped by Michael. I mean, that would explain why he just chased you through the building with a knife. </sarcasm> Oh right, there was that 2 minutes where Laurie was waiting for him to come up onto the roof. Maybe he switch clothes with someone.... At this point I become Scott Evil from Austin Powers. "Laurie, I have a gun, let me go get it and we'll both kill him!!!" Okay, ready? Laurie decides she better take off Michael's mask to make sure it's him (does she even know what he looks like under that?). She gets close enough so that - you guessed it - Michael can grab her. And grab her he does. They go over the side of the building where they are both hanging onto the ledge. Michael someone recovers his knife and plunges it into Laurie. Yes, it's over folks. Laurie Strode won't be down for breakfast. If the movie ended here, I would have only been marginally disappointed. As soon as Laurie dies I'm thinking, "What's next? This is it, it's over." Without a family member to go after, Michael Myers is retired. And that seems to be the case, too. As Michael is leaving he hands his knife to one of the patients. It was signying that his quest was complete, that he was ready to call it quits. I guess Michael decides to come out of retirement when people setup a fucking Internet broadcast out of his childhood home. I don't even want to talk about it. It was just horrible. Basically it was people wandering around a house getting killed off by Michael, while several people watched over the Internet. There was so much space filler with all these dicks walking around the house doing absolutely nothing. I wanted to leave SOOOO bad, but I forced myself to stay. And yes, there's room left at the end for a sequel. Michael isn't going anywhere my friends. Tension? NO! Scares? NO! Character development? DOUBLE NO! Blood/gore? A bit, but nothing to get excited over. Blood/gore wasn't essential in earlier Halloween movies thanks to great tension and scares. Halloween: Resurrection has neither, so some extra gore may have helped. Halloween Resurrection was a pure turd. Avoid it at all costs. I hope it bombs at the box office. At least then it might take another 10 years for a sequel, instead of just 4.
