* BaseBreakingCharacter: [[Music/BustaRhymes Freddie]] is either [[TheScrappy loathed]] for [[BadassDecay removing all the menace from Michael Myers]] and [[CharacterShilling mostly existing to stroke Busta Rhymes' ego]] or [[EnsembleDarkhorse loved]] for [[NarmCharm bringing some life and humor to an otherwise dull films]] and supplying most of the films' FunnyMoments.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The cancelled continuation of this film would've been Laurie's son seeking revenge against Michael for killing his mother. One has to wonder why that idea wasn't this movie in the first place.

** Freddie, 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.
*** Especially after Michael kills [[spoiler: Laurie Strode....his sister....the main heroine....]].

** "Resurrection" is like a weird AlternateContinuity hack job full of cheese that [[spoiler: kills the main heroine early on and has Michael Myers beaten by some has-been rapper with Kung-Fu. It's like they're saying 'The woman who knows the killer for years, is his sister and probably the one you'd assume who be able to beat the bad guy once and for all is a boob we can just kill and discard in favor of this goofy rapper guy. It's less a ''Halloween'' film and more a "Wish-Fullfilment Fantasy/Vanity Project" for Busta Rhymes]].

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** That's [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Kara "Starbuck"]] [[Creator/KateeSackhoff Thrace's]] head being lopped off in the middle of the movie, and [[Film/AmericanPie Kevin Myers]] getting stabbed in the head.
** And [[Series/RulesOfEngagement Jennifer Morgan]] escaping the house in the end.

Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The opening scene of the film, with Laurie Strode's narration about "the tunnel" and "a door to Heaven or Hell," really has no bearing on the plot.

Added DiffLines:

** While her performance isn't the best, Tyra Banks' character Nora has grown in popularity over the years, mostly because she seems to be having fun and doesn't seem either lifeless like Sara or Donna or TooDumbToLive like Jen. This has caused many to wish she had been the FinalGirl.

* HilariousInHindsight: Jamie Lee Curtis having [[spoiler:Laurie killed in the opening sequence]] in order to not do any more films in the series is particularly funny now that [[http://variety.com/2017/film/news/jamie-lee-curtis-halloween-finale-set-2018-1202560418/ she's coming back for a new sequel]] to be released on the original film's 40th anniversary.

** The blatant CharacterShilling at the beginning where Sara simple whispers the answer to a question in class, and her professor inexplicably hears her and goes on praising her with zero authenticity.

* {{Narm}}: It's all over the place in this movie.
** The blatant CharacterShilling at the beginning where Sara simple whispers the answer to a question in class, and her professor inexplicably hears her and goes on praising her with zero authenticity.
** Something falls and breaks behind Sara, and her startled scream is so loud that she shatters glass.
** Nearly all of Michael's kills are slightly hilarious. Impaling a guy with the camera tripod, or decapitating a girl with one stroke of a butcher's knife, for instance. Earlier than that, he bursts through a mirror (and presumably the wall it hung from) to stab a guy to death, whose dying screams of terror no one hears in the small house.
** [[spoiler: How does Freddie end up defeating Michael, one of the most famous movie villains ever? By jamming a sparky electrical cord into his crotch, comically electrocuting him.]]
** When Michael pulls his NotQuiteDead routine at the end, there's an abrupt wolf howl for no reason.
* NarmCharm: Busta Rhymes' entire performance as Freddie. It's completely out of place in a ''Halloween'' movie, yet he's the only one bringing any heart to the film besides the actor playing Michael Myers.
