Trivia

'Trick or Treat Studios' obtained the official costume licensing rights for the film. Both Nelson and Vincent Van Dyke joined their design team, who used toolings from the screen-used mold of Michael Myers' mask to adapt it for mass market sale. See more »

Goofs

At around 86 minutes in the film, when Michael Myers has smashed the window pane in the door and is holding Laurie Strode a foot in the air trying to choke her, she manages with her right hand to bring a sawed-off shotgun up from her right side of her body raising it towards Michael Myer's arm that's gripping her. When she shoots the gun, his left hand is free rather than still strangling her. After his hand is blown apart, only then she drops to the ground. Had his hand been free in reality, she would have dropped to ground well before this moment. See more »

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.
