Laurie Strode confronts her long-time foe Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
The opening credits are done in the style of "zooming in on a jack-o-lantern" like the original two movies, but the pumpkin is smashed, and slowly reassembles itself as the camera zooms in.
I need to protect my family. You have no security system, Karen.
Karen Strode: Mom, you need help!
Laurie Strode: Evil is real.
Near the end of the film the two police officers guarding Laurie's house are requesting backup after finding a murdered police man (= the doctor) near the police vehicle, which stopped a short distance from them. After the climax, with Laurie's house now on fire, Laurie, her daughter and her granddaughter hitch a ride on a pick up truck, yet backup is nowhere to be seen.
The opening and closing credits is stylized after the original 1978 version.
