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.
Curtis mentions the way the moment where she stabs Myers with the knitting needle then drops the knife looks stupid, since it was shot wide. She explains if it were shot closer, you would be able to see the revulsion on her face from holding the knife. She can't explain why Laurie throws the knife away the second time.
It was the Boogeyman.
Loomis: As a matter of fact it was.
Laurie's hair changes from curly to straight in almost every scene.
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.
