Six years after Michael Myers last terrorized Haddonfield, he returns there in pursuit of his niece, Jamie Lloyd, who has escaped with her newborn child, for which Michael and a mysterious cult have sinister plans.
Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.
Six years after Michael Myers' last massacre in Haddonfield, Jamie Lloyd has a child, but is then killed by Michael. Michael is allied with the Cult of Thorn, who both protect him and gave him the Curse of Thorn, the reason he killed all of his family. The Strode Family also moved into the Myers' house and are stalked by Michael. Sam Loomis and Tommy Doyle, a boy Laurie babysat during Michael's first rampage, are now out to stop Michael and the cult. Michael heads to kill Jamie's son and the rest of Laurie's family, but Dr. Loomis and Tommy plan to stop the curse, defeat the cult, stop Michael, and put an end to his murderous rampages, once and for all.Written by
One has tracked His murderous past. The other is a student of the Black Arts. On Friday, September 29th, a mystery will be revealed. The only thing more terrifying than how it began... is how it will END! See more »
The film is dedicated in memory of Donald Pleasence. See more »
The theatrical version ends with Loomis re-enterting the asylum, and we see Michael's body is gone and we hear Loomis scream, suggesting Michael killed him. In the producer's cut, we see Loomis come across Michael's body, suddenly the mask is pulled off to reveal it is Wynn, who passes on his curse of being Michael's guardian to Loomis before he dies. As the rune of thorn appears on Loomis' arm he screams, and the final image is of Michael disguised as the man in black leaving the asylum. See more »
Right? So this is the WORST of the HALLOWEEN sequels is it? That's real funny!
HALLOWEEN H20 was an insult to the intelligence, with the wimpiest Michael Myers yet. RESURRECTION is sooo bad as to defy logic, what am I saying? illogic even. I LIKED this film...shame about Jamie though, I was beginning to like her! I think what got up the machetes of most people was the cerebral complexity of this one. HOWEVER guys, what you DID get was a thinking person's Michael Myers - like this guy LOOKED the real mccoy. Seriously uncomfortable killings and....last but not least...Sam Loomis. With the demise of Donald Pleasence, the series lost its way and its been a case of "everyman for himself" in the subsequent instalments!
Less impactful than 4 but so far ahead of the last two cinematic embarrassments its not funny! Probably the least promoted and available chapter in the chronology it deserves considerably better than the outrageously inept and dubiously appropriate comments as appear here. If you consider yourself a serious student of the HALLOWEEN series ignore everything you might have read and watch it with an open mind. You may just be surprised.
