Halloween: Resurrection (2002) Movie Review
Whilst this isn't one of the best Halloween films, it is certainly a film that to be a lot of fun. The film really doesn't take itself too seriously; it's fun to watch, a silly teen horror movie, but also extremely self aware.
Jamie Lee Curtis appears in the early part of the film, after this however it's onto Busta Rhymes, Tyra Banks, and Thomas Ian Nicholas amongst others in order to try and keep things interesting, and they do a good job of it. Halloween Resurrection is certainly not up there with the original as a classic of its genre, it is however a fun way to pass 94 minutes though, and is a film that is definitely recommend watching at least the once.
Besides watching horror films, Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as "guising"), attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories and so on.
