Added DiffLines:

** The mask used in the movie, while seen as ''slightly'' better than the ones used in H20, is still hard to find scary, mostly his eyes look like they’re bugging out of the mask in many shots. Then there’s the Groucho Marx eyebrows...


* SignatureScene: "Trick 'r' treat, muthafucka." Also, the unforgettable "Two Michaels" scene.

** The opening 17 minutes between Laurie and Michael, as it’s the only part of the movie that many fans agree actually felt like a Halloween movie.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareRetardant: Most of the kills in this movie could’ve been legitimately scary, as they had some decent setups, but the inclusion of the webcams, and the cutting back and forth between the webcam footage and the onscreen footage drains any suspense they could’ve had, as it makes it look more nauseating than scary.


** Michael dramatically recoils when Rudy throws a handful of black pepper into his eyes. [[MadeOfIron Michael]], who has been shot dozens of times over the years, including in the eyes.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Some felt that Donna had potential to be an interesting character, and her actress was somewhat trying. But she's the second one killed off.

** Many wished that the film, [[spoiler:after killing off Laurie]], followed John and Molly as the main characters and their fight against Michael seeing as how ''[[Film/HalloweenII1981 Halloween II]]'' sets up the idea that he’s trying to kill everybody in his family.

*** Hell, the fact that ''Haddonfield itself'' doesn't have a particularly significant role in the story ''at all '' is disappointing considering it'd be rather interesting seeing how it's changed within this separate continuity from the ''Thorn'' trilogy.

* FanonDiscontinuity: Many fans prefer to regard ''H20'' as the ending to the original series. [[DisownedAdaptation They aren't alone either]], as Creator/JamieLeeCurtis and Creator/JohnCarpenter don't have a high opinion of the movie either. In the formers cawe, Jamie Lee Curtis sees the movie as a joke; and in the latters, John Carptenter tends to ignore movies that go past the first movie.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: One good thing many fans ''like'' about this mostly reviled entry is its rendition of the main theme, a slowed down version of the classic song that is able to be both hauntingly beautiful and chilling at the same time.
* AssPull: The whole "Michael replaced an ambulance worker for himself at the end of ''H20''" revelation at the start. It wasn't exactly a ''true'' AssPull, since producer Moustapha Akkad had planned the idea to get out of ''H20''[='=]s ending ever since they shot it, but even hardcore fans didn't buy it. It was originally worse; the Michael Myers in H20 wasn't actually Michael, it was an obsessive fan. It may have made more sense, but it would've been a very hard twist to defend. Par for the course for Akkad, who signed off on the ending of 4 with Jamie taking over as the killer in the series, but had no intention of following up on it.

* MemeicBadass: Inverted to the point of InformedAttribute. Part of Freddie's Scarppy status includes mention that he was beating Michael using martial arts. In the actual fight, [[spoiler:Michael had the upper hand up until Freddie electrocutes him.]]
