Rudy Grimes is a character in Halloween: Resurrection, played by Sean Patrick Thomas.

Biography

Rudy Grimes was a Haddonfield University student who was best friends with Sara Moyer and Jen Danzig. His dream was to become a chef and open up his own chain of bistros across the United States. Rudy was overjoyed when he learned that himself and his two friends were selected to become part of Danbertainment's Internet reality show in which they would be staying at the Myers's house for a night. He believed that Michael Myers was psychotic due to his diet and that people's choices of food made them do the things that they did.

As soon as Rudy and the others entered the Myers's house, he wanted to see the kitchen. Once he got there, he started to look around and noticed that the food was fresh, even though they had been told that the house was untouched. Rudy continued on his theory about how diet could affect the mind to Sara until they heard Jen screaming. They went to find their friend, but learned she was just pulling a prank on them. They then started to look around the room and Rudy was the first to realize that it was strange how everything seemed so easily placed there.

Afterwards, Rudy and Jen went off by themselves to smoke marijuana, but when Rudy heard Sara screaming that Michael was in the house, he tried to calm her down. Moments later, Freddie Harris (disguised as Michael Myers) grabbed Sara, but Jim Morgan attacked "Michael" with a fake arm. "Michael" revealed himself to be Freddie, who wanted to spice up the show and told them that everything they found was in fact fake, but asked them to keep up the act anyway in order to cash in any profits made from their production. Rudy and Sara did not want to be part of the show anymore and were getting ready to leave, when they heard Jen screaming. They figured she was just pulling another prank and, when they saw Michael appear behind him, they assumed it was Freddie.

Rudy's death

They soon realized they were wrong when Michael killed Jen by chopping off her head and chased after them. While Rudy tried to find a way to escape, Jim was also murdered. Sara ran off towards the stairs and Michael followed after her. Rudy then tried to distract Michael to give Sara a chance to escape. She did, but now Michael was after Rudy, who escaped towards the kitchen. He engaged in a brief knife fight with Michael, who cornered Rudy into the backdoor, lifted him, and pinned him to a door with three butcher knives.

Rudy's death is similar to Robert Simms' in Halloween and Kelly Meeker's in Halloween 4. One difference is that Michael used three knives on Rudy, while he used only one on Bob and a shotgun with Kelly. Also, Bob and Kelly were pinned to a wall, while Rudy was pinned to a door.
