* 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.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Meta example. 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* BerserkButton: Don't tease Michael Myers about how his mom is a pole dancer, or touch his masks.Also, don't touch his picture of him [[spoiler: and baby Laurie]]. You know what?, it's probably just best to not be around him at all.

** Made even worse by Rob Zombie's public admiration for John Carpenter's original.

** Made even worse by Rob Zombie's public admiration for John Carpenter's original. Not only did he explain Michael's childhood background and give him Freudian Excuse for his killings, but he also entirely abandoned the long tracking/crane shots so synonymous with Carpenter/Cundey in favor of constant quick cuts and shakey camera shots.
