Ya' know, that's probably one of the reasons why I could enjoy it. Those characters that I also found annoying, were killed in a very satisfying manner.
You see, I quite liked Lynda, Annie and Lindsey from the original Halloween. I'm not saying that made their deaths tragic in the same way Santino's death in The Godfather is tragic, but it definitely elicited a reaction other than 'ave it you cunt!'
And for me, I didn't find the movie trying to be too clever with the plot / characters. It remained almost as simple as the first.
JC's film is a man in a mask terrorising Haddonfield.
