R | | Horror, Thriller
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.
Since when do they let them just wander around?
(at around 51 mins) When Annie brings Lindsey Wallace over to the Doyle house, she tells Laurie that she will just have to call Ben Tramer "tomorrow." In actuality, Laurie could just talk to Ben at school, as November 1, 1978 was on a Wednesday.
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.
