Dialogue
Nearly all movies in the Halloween franchise try to be their own thing and, so, efforts oriented towards continuity and uniformity are futile at this point. Eighth entry in the series, this one attempts to time-stamp teenagers of its generation, the C's: electronics are everywhere and have significant impacts on the plot when they aren't literally the center of it.
This is the "found-footage" one. A lot is seen through cameras, and this becomes an obstacle when suspense needs to be set. The acting is colorful but terribly annoying. The characters are ill-defined, but then all we wan't is Michael Myers stalking and offing people, don't we? Besides killing his all-time rival, Jamie Lee Curtis's character, in the first act, he is offered little to play with.
Well, the movie looks great, at least! It is somewhat entertaining, too. Some actors, not necessarily the leads, are a great presence. Halloween: Resurrection is too trendy to stand out or age well, is easy on the mythos, and saves on the budget and the effects using screen grain in post-production. It is an hybrid of old and new pop culture better taken lightly.
