Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to kill again.
The Myers house is actually an abandoned building the filmmakers found in South Pasadena, California. It became a chiropractor's office.
Laurie: There's nothing to be scared of.
Tommy: Are you sure?
Laurie: I killed him...
Tommy: But you can't kill the boogeyman!
Halloween was on Tuesday in 1978, so there is no way Lynda could have learned new cheers in the morning for a morning football game (during school hours!) and then spend the rest of the day getting ready for the dance later that night.
The music for the film -- written and performed by John Carpenter -- is instead credited to "The Bowling Green Philharmonic Orchestra." Carpenter grew up in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
In all UK video releases there are 12 seconds omitted involving a chase scene outside between Micheal & Laurie. There is no given reason for this by the BBFC and the UK terrestrial channel BBC2 always includes this scene.
