* {{Sequelitis}}: This is an almost unanimously and deservedly reviled film, often ranked as the worst in the series. It's also seen as completely unnecessary, given that the ending to ''H20'' neatly wrapped things up and the writers had to go to [[AssPull extreme measures]] to {{retcon}} Michael's death.

** Music/BustaRhymes' character. Rappers usually get a pass for letting their massive egos run wild on these kinds of flicks because it's impossible to ruin a movie when it's already bad to start with, but using kung fu to lay the beatdown on a legendary and unkillable ImplacableMan like Michael Myers was definitely a bridge too damned far.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Between its [[TechnologyMarchesOn "high-tech" premise]] and its pop culture references (particularly the RealityTV of the time), it's so early 2000s it hurts.

* AssPull: The whole "Michael replaced an ambulance worker for himself at the end of ''H20''" revelation at the start. Even hardcore fans didn't buy that one.
** It's not exactly a true AssPull since producer Moustapha Akkad had planned the idea to get out of H20's ending since they shot it.

* SoBadItsGood: ''Resurrection'' is the goofiest ''Halloween'' to date, what with the silly RetCon at the start, BustaRhymes using [[IKnowMortalKombat martial arts he 'learned' from watching old kung-fu flicks]] to beat up Michael Myers, "Trick or Treat, mothafucka!", and so on.

** It was originally worse; the Michael Myers in H20 wasn't actually Michael, it was an obsessive fan. Let's be glad they didn't go that far.
*** But that would have made MORE sense
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Michael Myers wasn't in the whole movie. He was there during the opening scene where he killed Laurie but the rest of the movie involved the serial killer fanatic that Myers encountered in the opening movie took his place, while the real Myers is just hiding somewhere. After he killed Laurie him passing the knife to that fanatic could be seen as his way of saying" I'm retired".
