* LoveItOrHateIt: It's probably the most base breaking entry in the series since Season of the Witch or Curse of Michael Myers.

Added DiffLines:

* 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 stripper for a mom and a mean step-father.
** 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 shaky camera shots.

* UglyGuyHotWife : Pretty much every couple on-screen. As WebVideo/CinemaSins points out, are there NO attractive men in Haddonfield?
** Annie's boyfriend is an exception.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Deborah's suicide. While the film has problems, it's '''devastating''' to see a woman who tried to keep her family together lose it all because her son ''lost it'', and then live with the cold fact her kid is basically far from [[UsedToBeASweetKid the sweet little kid he was]]. Seeing her watching the good times with her family and Michael before killing herself and leaving Laurie alone is a heartbreaking but ''horrifying'' cataclysm that lead to the events of the film..]]
* The death of Ishmael, the only guard that treated Michael with humanity, is especially hard to watch due to both his cries of "I was good to you, Mikey!" And the absolutely brutal method of killing him with both drowning and crushing by television set.

** Also, Loomis shouldn't have been able to get a gun so easily, pointed out by many people.

** Ismael, Annie, and Sheriff Brackett are liked because they're among the few characters in the remake franchise who weren't complete assholes.

** Ismael, Annie, and Sheriff Brackett are liked because they're among the few characters in the remake franchise who weren't complete assholes. Annie also gets bonus points for being played by Creator/DanielleHarris.


Added DiffLines:

** The movie was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally going to have been]] a prequel/interquel centering around Michael's years in the asylum. Some felt that would have been more interesting than a straight-up remake.

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Joe Grizzly. He's a OneSceneWonder played by Ken Foree who was badass enough to give Michael a small challenge before killing him.
** Ismael, Annie, and Sheriff Brackett are liked because they're among the few characters in the remake franchise who weren't complete assholes.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Ronnie is supposed to be disliked for being an Abusive Parent, but he's ultimately disliked for being a one-dimensional asshole who torments his family ForTheEvulz, the fact that he comes off as more of an overgrown schoolyard bully than an actual abuser, as mentioned in Narm above, and for giving Michael a FreudianExcuse, despite what made Michael so terrifying in the original movies was that he had no reason for killing.

** In his review, Phelous criticized that one of the things he didn't like about this version of Loomis was that in the beginning it seemed that he was [{{Demonization}} describing Michael as being a lot worse that he actually was (at that point).]]
