Brief Synopsis:
No longer needing to seek out and murder his family, notorious serial killer Michael Myers is returning to his childhood home. Unbeknownst to this fact, a webcast creator and a group of college students have decided to spend the night in the infamous Myers house to find clues about what drove Michael to madness. Now, locked in the house and being picked off one by one, everyone fights to survive the night with Michael Myers on his favorite holiday.
Intention:
Following the very successful Halloween: H20, Halloween: Resurrection proved to be a franchise low. The characterization of Michael Myers was a joke with characters showing no fear at all towards him and cracking poorly written jokes. My edit really aims to make characters act how they really would in this situation, fearful for their lives. Cutting out the nonsense also has the added benefit of making Michael Myers quite brutal and unstoppable.
Other Sources:
Scream 2, Halloween, Halloween 2, Halloween 4, and Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers soundtracks.

This edit saves as much as possible with this movie. It was dogshit upon release, and I'd say it's impossible to make it a really good movie. However, that being said, this edit creates a feeling that was there in many of the other Halloween movies, but was absent in Resurrection. That 'feeling' is fear. I'd like to say that this movie wasn't at ALL scary. That, and the fact that it was released in July just... bothers me. It does a very good job in maintaining audio quality while replacing music and cutting scenes that NEEDED to be changed. The fact that the studio never caught on to that just blows my mind. I really appreciate this edit and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see a non-garbage Resurrection. Either that, or if you haven't watched Resurrection yet, then I suggest you view this copy instead.

I really liked this edit. It manages to transform H:Ressurection from a mess to a enjoyable movie. It get rid of various fillers and the narrative is straight to the point. Some moments I think could have been cut just for narrative purposes like the killing of the guy with the tripod. I always tought was strange that Michael was there all the time hiding and waiting the kids. Cutting the scene of the guy with tripod could look like Michael arrived later in the house coming from the mental hospital. But overall is a great edit! The new music added are way better that the original cut! And no Busta Rhymes kicking Michael ass with kung fu! Thank God! A great fanedit by Ryantology! Check it out!
