!!The franchise:
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The main theme. Seriously, try listening to it without getting the chills. ''Just try it.''
* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Michael Myers]] is a cold-blooded {{serial killer}} with a hatred of teenage sexuality and a [[KnifeNut fondness for carving knives]]. After killing his sister [[EnfantTerrible at the age of six]], [[TheSociopath Michael]] breaks out of prison as an adult and goes on a killing spree through his hometown of Haddonfield, on his way to kill his surviving sister, murdering three of her friends before targeting her. He's stopped, but the horror doesn't end there, as the series spits into two timelines. In both of them Michael returns repeatedly, making numerous attempts on Laurie, her daughter Jaime, and anybody else who gets in his way. In [[Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers Jamie's]] [[Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers timeline]], he finally [[Film/HalloweenTheCurseOfMichaelMyers kills Jamie]] and then [[WouldHurtAChild targets her newborn baby]] [[note]] Who is believed to be [[LukeIAmYourFather his own son]], [[ChildByRape born from the rape]] of his niece [[/note]] In that same movie, it was initially believed he was [[DemotedToDragon under the control of an evil cult]], but he proves his evil is [[DragonInChief beyond anyone's control]] when he massacres them too. In the ''[[Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater H20]]'' [[Film/HalloweenResurrection timeline]], after tracking Laurie down, he fakes his death by switching places with a paramedic, who was killed in his place by Laurie, before tracking Laurie down in an insane asylum, and later kills people filming a reality TV show in his house a year after his goal was seemingly complete. [[LackOfEmpathy Incapable of feeling empathy]], and driven by a loathing of seemingly everybody he encounters, the unstoppable and perpetually silent Michael helped to define the {{slasher movie}} as we know it, and remains one of the most bone-chillingly evil slasher villains.
* FirstInstallmentWins: The first film is a universally praised horror classic. The sequels... exist.
* HilariousInHindsight: The success of Mike Myers makes it a bit hard to take a villain with that name seriously.
* {{Sequelitis}}: Most of the sequels are generally regarded as low quality, with ''Resurrection'' being regarded as the series' nadir and the Rob Zombie-directed reboots being a LoveItOrHateIt affair.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: ''IV'' and ''H20''. Both came after two lackluster sequels, both showed the influence of the slasher trends of the day.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Though the original film is deservedly a classic, the ''Halloween'' series could have spawned some far more interesting stories if the studio had gone ahead with Creator/JohnCarpenter's original plan of making it GenreAnthology about stories set on AllHallowsEve instead of just turning it into (what quickly became) a generic SlasherMovie series.
* UncannyValley: The original Michael Myers Halloween mask was a Creator/WilliamShatner mask, spraypainted white and with the hair frizzed out and eyeholes altered. The effect is downright creepy.
* VillainSue: Michael in the Devil's Due comics.
* TheWoobie:
** Never mind that he is one of the few characters who ''doesn't'' get horribly murdered, does anything good ever happen to Dr. Loomis?
** Jamie Lloyd. Her mother died in a car accident, her uncle is a monstrous killer who is dead-set on killing her, is [[spoiler:kidnapped by the Thorn cult]] at the end of ''Revenge'' and she is killed off at the start of ''Curse'' (and Producer's Cut of the film reveals that [[spoiler:that her baby is the result of ''Michael raping her'']]).
** Laurie, especially in Zombie's ''2''. Not only does she lose her friends but, going by canon, [[spoiler:she loses her daughter to Michael (''Thorn'' canon), loses her family (''H20''/''HR'' canon), and either ends up becoming that she is a Myers or becoming crazy and getting shot dead by the police (Zombieverse)]].
