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 to kill again.
In the documentary short, 'Halloween' Unmasked 2000 (1999), it was revealed that the crew had chosen two masks for Michael Myers to decide on.

When Annie and Laurie are walking home after school, Laurie spies Michael Myers standing by a hedge - it is clear he is wearing his signature white Shatner mask. Later, Laurie gets home and looks out of her bedroom window to see Michael Myers near a clothes line in the back garden looking at her - it is clear that he has on his striking signature mask yet again. What is clearly at least an hour later (if not more), Annie picks Laurie up to take her to their babysitting jobs for the night and while they are on the road, they spy Annie's father (the sheriff) who is attending a hardware store robbery where a mask and some rope had just recently been stolen - the alarms are still going off as Annie parks nearby to talk with her father. This time line makes no sense as the robbery would had to have occurred at least an hour previously for Myers to have had time to follow Laurie and have the mask for her to see him wearing it so it would make no sense for the alarms to still be going off and for the police to have just arrived at the 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.
