* BaseBreaker: Bud. Budd. Fans can't agree if he's an annoying AssholeVictim who couldn't die soon enough (especially when he's played the actor who [[RetroactiveRecognition would seven years later play]] an equally loathsome and annoying role as the rapists' cheerer in the Academy Award-winning courtroom drama ''Film/TheAccused'') or a hilarious JerkAss {{Jerkass}} CasanovaWannaBe who brought a lot of laughs to the film

** Also an unfortunate bit of TruthInTelevision, given the warnings issue every year for razored apples and tampered candy.

* ContestedSequel: Though it's certainly one of the better received sequels.

* ContestedSequel: Though it's certainly one of the better received sequels.sequels, some people felt that the twist that Michael [[spoiler:is Laurie's brother]] downplays his character to a degree. However, a lot of Michael is still a complete mystery, so the twist is acceptable for most fans.



* TooCoolToLive: Dr. Loomis.
* VillainDecay: The revelation that [[spoiler:Laurie was Michael's sister]]. Some felt that the reveal took away the menacing mystery that made Michael such an effective villain as it gave a reason for him to [[spoiler:stalk Laurie]] instead of leaving it as an unknown motive. Others felt that Michael's obsession with [[spoiler:killing his family members]] may make him out to be one of the more brutal or irredeemable slashers as even some villains [[spoiler:care for at least one family member]].

This is still a rather divided twist to this day, but for the most part, people seem to accept it as canon as it's used again in [[Film/{{Halloween 2007}} the remake]].
