Trivia

When Danny McBride was promoting Alien: Covenant (2017) on The Nerdist Podcast with Chris Hardwick and asked on this unusual project for him, McBride responded-"There's more to life than dick and fart jokes. It's fun and, quite honestly, pretty terrifying to verge into new territory. Now it's accidentally even more terrifying not because of this character, but the history of this franchise and reputation of remakes. We wanna do something special-I mean that." See more »

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.

I couldn't wait for it to be over...
19 October 2018 | by mark-dosterSee all my reviews

It blows my mind that I am saying this but this movie just is not good at ALL. It had no idea what style it was trying to be. It involved characters that weren't needed and were fleeting. It still acts as though Laurie is Michael's sister even though she isn't and I did not believe that Laurie could be that crazy after 40 years, still stuck on that one night. The characters were not interesting or likable. They snuck in comedy at wrong moments. The pacing was off. It would rev up, slow down, take a sharp left turn, then slow down again, rev up for a second. There was little to no suspense or build-up. It was as though they just hoped having the Myers character would make everyone happy and they did not care to make anything else enjoyable. They just did not know what they were going for with this one. I compare it to sitting in a room with 3 TVs that each have completely different programs on each and you're taking turns watching all 3 at once. That's how inconsistent this movie felt. I could not wait for it to be over...
