-> ''"You've heard of the tunnel? The one we all go through sooner or later? At the end, there's a door. And waiting for you on the other side of that door is either Heaven or Hell. This is that door."''
-->-- '''Laurie Strode.'''

After the film {{retcon}}s certain events that happened at the end of ''[[Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater Halloween H20]],'' ''Halloween: Resurrection'' picks up on Michael Myers who now lives a quiet life in a system of tunnels beneath his old home in Haddonfield, Illinois. However, his domestic peace ends up shattered as the house becomes the basis for an Internet reality show called "Dangertainment", where a group of teenagers get roped into spending a night in it, and those who manage to stay the whole night win a nice prize for their trouble -- all while the Internet watches.

Needless to say, Michael doesn't like this one bit.

It currently marks the final film of [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} the original series]] as started by ''[[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} Halloween]]''; Rob Zombie rebooted the franchise in 2007 with [[Film/{{Halloween 2007}} a remake of the first film]].

!!''Halloween: Resurrection'' contains examples of the following tropes:

* AcousticLicense: Sara is in a college classroom in the beginning. When the professor asks a question, and she answers, her voice is barely higher than a whisper, yet the professor hears her clearly and responds.
* AndStarring: There are two "and" credits one for Tyra Banks and one for Creator/JamieLeeCurtis.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Creator/KateeSackhoff's death. Michael decapitates her in one stroke ''with a one-foot-long kitchen knife''. There are cartoons that don't make a mockery of physics as bad as that.
** To add insult to injury, her character's head somehow manages to fly off at a right angle to the direction it SHOULD have gone, allowing it to roll down the stairs for dramatic effect. Momentum is apparently out to lunch, too.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:At the beginning, Michael finally manages to kill Laurie.]]
* BattleAmongstTheFlames: In the climax.
* BetterManhandleTheMurderWeapon: [[spoiler: Michael hands his knife to serial killer fanboy Harold, which he graciously accepts, not knowing it had just been used in several murders and he's going to be taking the fall for them.]]
* CallBack: Michael "dies" by fire, much as he did in the second film.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Many fans, some may argue the majority if not all, tend to ignore this one and view ''H20'' as the true conclusion to the franchise.
** And how! [[spoiler: Laurie should be the one to not die and defeat Michael....not Busta Rhymes.]]
* ContinuityNod: Towards the end, the presumed dead Michael sits up ''exactly '' as he did at the end of the first movie, and for the same reason--to finish off his unsuspecting victim.
* CoversAlwaysLie: The poster depicts Laurie with her short hair from the previous movie but she has long hair in the movie.
* DeadStarWalking: [[spoiler:Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: At the conclusion of the prologue, Michael, after [[spoiler:killing Laurie]] goes to give his knife back to the patient that he took it from. When he does so, he hands it to him with the "safe" end first. That's right, kids. Even a psychotic, inhumane serial killer/mass murderer knows (a) the importance of returning something that you borrowed, and (b) the proper way to hand someone a sharp object.
** Either that, or [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation he was trying to make sure the inmate's fingerprints were on the weapon.]]
* EvilOverlooker: The [[http://i.imgur.com/kQcnf.jpg poster]] does this with Michael Myers' BlackEyesOfEvil looming over the frightened-looking protagonists.
* FinalGirl: Sara Moyer.
* FlippingTheBird: Donna flips off Jim when he comments on her legs.
* FreezeFrameBonus: A picture of Creator/JoshHartnett, who played Laurie's son in the previous film, can be seen in her room at the hospital.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Freddie tries to bring Michael Myers down with his fists.
* GroinAttack: Freddie electrocutes Michael in the groin.
* TheHeroDies: [[spoiler:Laurie herself at the beginning.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Rudy's impalement to a door with ''three knives''.
* LoonyFan: Harold, a mental patient with intense knowledge of {{Serial Killer}}s.
* TheManTheyCouldntHang
* MurderByMistake: Laurie seemingly killed Michael by chopping his head off with an axe in ''H20'', but it is revealed that she actually killed a paramedic whose larynx Michael had crushed before knocking him out and switching clothes with him.
* OffWithHisHead: The deaths of both an asylum guard and Jenna (the latter being decapitated [[ArtisticLicensePhysics with a single swing of a regular kitchen knife]]).
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Trick or treat, [[PrecisionFStrike motherfucker]]."
* ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: Freddie (Busta Rhymes) hypes up the premise of his reality television show filmed inside the old Myers residence as "a mystery wrapped up inside of a riddle inside of an enigma."
* SeeYouInHell: [[spoiler:Laurie]]'s last words.
* ShootTheShaggyDog: Myers finally [[spoiler:kills Laurie]] along with several RedShirt characters, and he's still NotQuiteDead at the end.
* StockSubtitle
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: [[spoiler:Laurie herself]] in the opening. This was enforced by Jamie Lee Curtis herself, as she was contractually obliged to be in the movie, but wanted to ensure she would never appear in another sequel.
* WakingUpAtTheMorgue: Done in the ending, complete with EyeAwaken.
