Goofs

When Sheriff Hawkins enter the house on the domestic disturbance call, he yells out "Haddonfield Sheriff's Department". The patch on his jacket says "Warren County Sheriff". Haddonfield is an incorporated municipality and would not have a county sheriff patrolling but rather a police chief, as sheriffs are county level law enforcement and the municipal police would be the Haddonfield Police Dept.

User Reviews

 
80's Slasher movie at its best.
13 February 2019 | by rpgisusSee all my reviews

Don't listen to the wanna be critics who know very little about the Halloween franchise or films in general this movie delivers for what it was made and advertised for, a return to form to the original ingredients that made John Carpenter's Halloween back in 1978 so good. This movie can't be ground breaking since Halloween is already ground breaking, the father of all slasher movies with his grandpa obviously being Psycho.
