* ShootTheShaggyDog: After getting mocked for being related to Michael, becoming mute due to a powerful connection with Michael, all her friends, her sister, and her dogs killed, Jamie is kidnapped by the cult of Thorn and is forced to have sex with Michael, and she's finally impaled by farm equipment. Jamie could be the contender for the most depressing character in all of the horror genre.
** She literally gets shot to death in the Producer's Cut.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsenteeActor: This is, to date, the only film with Michael Myers to not feature Creator/JamieLeeCurtis or Creator/DanielleHarris. It's the only one in the entire ''franchise'' if you count Jamie Lee's uncredited voice cameo in ''Film/HalloweenIIISeasonOfTheWitch''. However, this film does feature Danielle's original character, Jamie, played by a different actress (see below).

** The sequence of Michael murdering the post-coital Beth and Tim, Kara running across the street when she realizes what's happened, finding their dead bodies, being attacked by Michael herself, then fleeing back across the street while still being pursued by the knife-wielding Michael, is very similar to the sequence in the first movie with Bob, Lynda, and Laurie.

She even finds Debra's body hanging upside down just like Bob's was.

->''"...If there's one thing I know, you can't control evil. You could lock it up, you could burn it, and bury it, and pray that it dies, but it never will. It just rests for awhile. You could lock your doors and say your prayers, but the evil is out there...waiting. And maybe, just maybe...it's closer than you think.''"

->''"Do you know why we celebrate Halloween?...A long, long time ago, it was night of great power, when the days grew short and the spirits of the dead returned to their homes to warm themselves by the fireside. All across the land, huge bonfires were lit; ohh, there was a marvelous celebration. People danced, and they played games and they dressed up in costumes hoping to ward off the evil spirits, especially...the boogeyman.''"

* {{Jerkass}}: John Strode and Barry Sims. The former is the abusive father of Kara and Tim, [[spoiler:who gets himself, his wife and Tim killed because he neglected to tell them that their house was where Michael Myers use to live]], and the latter is an obnoxious, rude and sleezy radio DJ who ignores Jamie's cries for help. Needless to say, nobody was upset when Micheal [[KickTheSonOfABitch killed both of]] [[AssholeVictim them]], with John Strode in particular getting one of the franchise's most brutal deaths.
