AKA "AMERICAN (PUMPKIN) PIE". Hi, my name is plot. Have we met? What did it have to take to bring the HALLOWEEN series this low? Were we as the collective fans so unappreciative and unresponsive to each of the previous sequels that the filmmakers had to go and create the most bland, generic teen Horror film imaginable by slapping on the HALLOWEEN label while trying to tap into the hip new wave of technology and pop culture? RESURRECTION finds a group of teens competing on a TV reality show where they have to investigate the Myers house on live webcams, when Michael decides to return home for the holidays. After a lackluster beginning, the film starts off with an entirely new cast and story arch that has absolutely nothing to do with any of the other films in the series. Its tough to pick out the worst actor with so many excellent choices, but Busta Rhymes really steps up his game in what may be the most over the top and ridiculous performance in the entire series. If the genius producers hadn't bribed Moustapha Akkad for the Myers name, this would have been a forgettable direct to DVD slasher bore, but it will now live on in infamy as being one of the worst sequels of all time. If everything else weren't bad enough, RESURRECTION takes the hate up another notch to absolutely seal the deal by offering the single worst send off of any major character in any movie ever made. Ever. Screw being objective for once. Thanks for nothing.

*PS - I just realized where I had seen the name Rick Rosenthal (director of RESURRECTION) before. He also directed HALLOWEEN 2, which I also find to be a royal bore. Double fail.
