This time around we're shown more about Michael Meyers' childhood in Haddonfield; his more than dysfunctional family, his antisocial behavior, the murders he commits on Halloween and his time at Smith's Grove Sanitarium under the care of Dr. Samuel Loomis (Creator/MalcolmMcDowell). Then, fifteen years later, he escapes from the asylum and starts making way to Haddonfield, where one Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) prepares for her babysitting gig on AllHallowsEve. She, and her unfortunate friends, will soon find out just what kind of nightmare they have found themselves in.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Arguably, more so than the original with the killings being a lot more gruesome and visceral, plus depictions of rape, animal cruelty and suicide, as well as just having an overall slightly more disturbing tone.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: The original works so well in part due to no background being given onto why Michael is the way he is. This movie spends a third of its run time showing you his generically bad childhood, including a a stripper for a mom and a mean step-father.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Michael seems doting on his baby sister, Laurie. She's the only one he doesn't kill during his killing spree (along with his mother) and he holds onto an old picture of them together while he's in prison. When he escapes from prison, his main goal is to find her so that (presumably) they can be a family again.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Michael seemed to be this to Laurie. She's one of the few survivors of Michael's killing spree.

* AdaptationJerkass: Lynda would've been a complete bitch in this film if Laurie didn't play a part of a MoralityPet for her.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Michael loves his little sister and mother very much. They're the only people he would never think about killing. He actually wanted to reestablish his relationship with Laurie once he broke out of the institute. [[spoiler:Too bad she's terrified of him after he's killed her friends.]]

* {{Badass}}: The fact that [[OneSceneWonder Big Joe Grizzly]] (bitch!) manages to hold his own against Michael for more than five seconds puts him in this territory.

Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: The movie features quite a bit of fanservice from Hanna Hall, Kristina Klebe and Danielle Harris. In particular we're treated to a full frontal shot of Klebe as she's being strangled by Myers and Harris is shirtless during Myers attack on her which turns into fan disservice.
