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 film takes place on October 31, 1963 and from October 30 to October 31, 1978. They also spell it Oktober instead of October
Mr. Peter Myers:
(at around 47 mins) While doing her laundry, the laundry room door blows shut and supposedly 'locks' Annie in. At this point, the lock on the door is in the vertical position. But as soon as Annie tries to 'open' the door, we can clearly see that she turns the lock as she struggles to open it, for when she backs away from the door again, the lock is in the horizontal position, so yes, she 'locked' herself in. When Lindsay comes to fetch her a few minutes later, the lock is mysteriously in the vertical position again.
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.
The television network-version (aka. Extended-Version) has a different climax: when 'Dr. Loomis' shoots 'Michael Myers' in the end, you can only hear the gun- shots from outside the house, while in the theatrical-version you can see how he shoots him. This alternate-scene was also used in the beginning of "Halloween II(1981)" during the flashback sequence, instead of using the original footage from the ending of the Theatrical-Version.
