Because of some prodding from my fellow bloggers, I decided to write a review of this awful film. Well, not really so much of a review as a scathing expose. I am a pretty open person, and like to give things a chance, but even this abomination couldn’t be saved. There are some things you don’t do, one of them being kill Laurie Strode, whether Jamie Lee Curtis in on board or not. They could not have thought this was a good film, let alone a good idea. They blatantly, and horribly, exploited a beloved film franchise, and decided to use it as a cash cow to get money from unsuspecting teeny-boppers. But we lifelong fans know better.
The dumbass premise of this one revolves around Laurie supposedly killing a paramedic in a body bag instead of the real Michael Myers at the end of the previous film, which was ridiculous to begin with. Then, she’s in a mental home looking scraggly and old and insane, and then lets Michael finally kill her. What a letdown! And total bullshit too – you really think Laurie’s gonna go down like that after 20 years? I was done with this movie five minutes in. This movie, and especially this part, is a complete insult to its audience, and presupposes that we’re a bunch of idiots who are just going to accept this blasphemy as gospel. Lara Croft, Ellen Ripley, Katniss Everdeen, Beatrix Kiddo, Clarice Starling…I mean, come on! Even if any of these other characters have died or will die, they sure as fuck aren’t gonna go out like that! Then, to add to the misery, we get fucking Tyra Banks and Busta Rhymes hosting some lame ass reality show featuring some young horny idiots who are dared to spend the night in the Myers house. With the ever-growing ignorance of the emerging internet generation, we should have seen this coming. Sadly, we never thought they’d degrade one of the most infamous movie villains of all time in such a way. But, of course, they did. And what did we get? Practically another American Pie sequel with some oblivious young morons seeking their fifteen minutes of fame. Well, they got it – though they probably just didn’t think it would be in the form of a hate-filled review online. Too bad. They portrayed Michael Myers as almost a caricature, a monster you have to beat in a video game in order to advance to the next level, or win a prize. It’s practically vomit-inducing. I haven’t watched this movie since it was in theaters ten years ago, and I don’t plan to. Busta should stick to rhyming, and Tyra should stick to “smising” on ANTM.
I only have two dvd’s in my hands….and neither one is this shit!
Sorry, guys, that’s all I got. I can’t talk about this garbage anymore. Avoid this piece of shit at all costs, it’s a fucking sacrilege.
