* EnsembleDarkhorse: Not a character, but a scene: John's death scene in the theatrical cut (where he's impaled by Michael in a fuse box, causing his head to explode) is so satisfying, that both [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq7AJe2wXbw#t=13m8s Phelous]] and the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9d06XTkXBSs&t=17m11s Cinema Snob]] agree that it's the only improvement the theatrical cut has over the producer's cut (as John simply get electrocuted in the producer's cut).

* CompleteMonster: In the theatrical cut, [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr. Terrence Wynn]] is revealed to be as monstrous as Michael himself. Wynn uses the ancient {{Cult}} of Thorn as a front for his experiments, using Michael's DNA to create evil in its purest form by impregnating female patients of Smith's Grove Sanitarium with Michael's DNA, most resulting in stillbirths. It is also discovered Wynn helped mentor Michael into being the killer he is today, and helped him escape in the [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} first movie]]. In the [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers previous movie]], Wynn followed Michael in his killing spree, and [[CopKiller blew up a police station]] before abducting Michael's niece Jamie and escaping with Michael. After Jamie successfully births a new baby, Steven, Wynn plans on making Steven the next cycle of evil, and even forms a fascination with Danny Strode, trying to get him to become a killer too.

His actions are even more abhorrent in the Producer's Cut, which contains additional scenes in which he personally murders Jamie and uses his dying breath to {{curse}} Doctor Loomis with the Mark of Thorn.

* {{Sequelitis}}: This film's critical reception is the worst in the entire ''Halloween'' franchise, with a mere 6% on RottenTomatoes, a huge fall from grace from the [[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} original film]]'s 94%. By this point in the series, the story had strayed pretty far from the original film, which was praised for its simple story and its slow building of suspense. This film, on the other hand, was criticized for having a very messy, convoluted story, with some calling the finished film incomprehensible (although that's mostly blamed on ExecutiveMeddling). It's no wonder the [[Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater next film]] was a partial reboot. However some fans consider ''Film/HalloweenResurrection'' to be the worst in the series, and ''Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers'' not far behind.

** Dr. Loomis's screaming at the end. Especially in the Producer's Cut. While pretty silly in context, Donald Pleasence's screams are VERY unsettling.

* HilariousInHindsight: A caller on the Barry Sims show has a discussion that ends in Barry mocking the idea of "Michael Myers in Space." A few years later and, while this isn't a Michael Myers movie, Jason Voorhees gets sent into space AND the future in ''Film/JasonX''. Seems someone took the idea of a serial killer in outer space seriously.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/PaulRudd appears in one of his first films.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: At least, over the previous film...although to the fans, that may not being saying much.
* TheWoobie: Jamie Lloyd as in the last two movies, her baby, Kara and Danny Strode, and Kara's mother Debra. [[spoiler: Especially Debra and ESPECIALLY Jamie, who is finally killed off.]]
