Yeah, you're probably wondering why they're resurrecting this corpse of a franchise, too. But thanks to the welcome return of inventive Halloween II director Rick Rosenthal, the eighth appearance of Michael Myers is good for a cheapie fright-night outing (or at least a fun rental later for your next slumber party). The flick's other star, Jamie Lee Curtis, is limited to an opening sequence (think Drew Barrymore in Scream).
And by casting younger, strapping stuntman Brad Loree as the man behind the mask, there's some fresh blood, too. A plot that's so 1999 features Tyra Banks, Thomas Ian Nicholas and Sean Patrick Thomas spending the night in Myers' home for a Webcast show à la MTV's Fear. When Mike returns, well, you know what happens next. There are a few legitimate scares, though, as the video effects give the film a creepy Blair Witch-ian feel. The most frightening part? You'll almost have a decent time.
