Corrected entry: Michael kills the truck driver and takes his clothes. Everything fits him perfectly, despite Michael being taller and bigger than the other guy. (00:53:00)

Correction: This is incorrect, the truck driver's overalls look obviously baggy on him when shown wearing them, and although Michael is definitely taller than the truck driver within this remake, there's no doubt in my mind that they are about as big as each other in terms of shoulder width, body width. In reality it would fit Michael perfectly.

Corrected entry: Lynda uses a land line in the Myers' house to call Laurie, even though the house has been abandoned for 15 years and wouldn't have a phone.

Correction: Lynda calls Laurie from her cell phone in the Myers house.

Corrected entry: The way Michael pins a guy on the wall using a knife is exactly like he did in the original version.


Correction: Given that this is a direct remake, especially in the second half, I don't think noting various similarities should be considered valid trivia. There'd need to be far too many entries, and it's not really something that'd be considered interesting or notable since it's expected.


Corrected entry: When Tommy and Lindsey approach Dr. Loomis and tell him Michael took Laurie, we see him running down the street towards the Myers house. But later on, he brings Laurie outside into a cop car and starts it up. Where did the car come from, and if he didn't drive it there, why does he have the keys?

Correction: He is running down the street to a cop car, not automatically to the Meyer house. Plus we never see his full journey to the Meyer house so who is to say he didn't have time to pick up the police car?


Corrected entry: The news reporter says Judith was stabbed 17 times, but Michael only stabs her five times then goes to get the baby, then goes outside and waits for his mother to get home.

Correction: We only see him stab her five times, but he could have stabbed her much more then that. The news also said that Ronnie was stabbed in the face and heart but we only see Michael slit his throat after he duct tapes him to the chair. We see what we see on the screen, but it doesn't mean that they're the only actions Michael performs.


Corrected entry: Sheriff Bracket put Laurie in a foster home "off the books", so officially by all accounts Michael's baby sister was dead. Yet Michael not only knows she's alive, he knows exactly who she is despite not a single shred of evidence or police report to support it. (This starts to go into the old Halloween mythos that Michael subconsciously knew because of his 'curse', but in the context of Zombie's film being a standalone project, it doesn't fit).

Correction: Directly after Michael un-buries the mask he wore whilst killing his older sister and the original knife he killed her with along with Ronnie, Laurie stops by the closed down Myers house to actually drop mail off, and when she does so, Michael hears her approaching and stands directly behind the presumably locked door, and smells the mail once Laurie has dropped it through the mail slot on the door, onto the ground. Now, Loomis' himself tells Dr. Koplenson and Morgan Walker after Michael escapes that; "He has the tameness of a wolf" or something like that, that indicates Michael's use for his other instincts besides talking.

Correction: Michael may have just obsessed over Laurie after she dropped the paperwork through the mail slot. Maybe he thought she resembled their mother and therefore must be his sister. Who knows why a psychotic person would do what he did.

Corrected entry: When you see Michael on the balcony, a couple arrive at his house thinking it is empty. As the van backs into the driveway you see a shape of a head in the rear windshield, then it quickly moves.

Correction: That's not a head, it's Lynda's foot on the dashboard - she takes it down when they stop in order to get out of the van.

Corrected entry: Michael Myers breaks through the bathroom door and drags a screaming Laurie down the hall towards the front door. But in the very next shot of him walking out the door, he's carrying her now unconscious body in his arms.

Correction: He probably knocked her over the head with something to shut her up and we just didn't see it; he intended on carrying her down the street to his childhood home, and dragging a screaming girl through a neighborhood, with the cops looking for him, might have been a little too suspicious.

Corrected entry: In the cemetery scene, Loomis and Chester Chesterfield are discussing the dead animal when Loomis uses his cell phone. In 1978 cell phones were a loooong ways off.


Correction: By the time this part of the movie takes place, you've already seen several other characters using or at least handling cell phones. Another correction says it had been many years since Michael's first crimes, so yes, they'd been invented.


Correction: At this point in the movie it has been many years since Michael's incarceration and by that time cell phones have been invented.

Correction: The remake isn't set in the 70's. In this film, Michael was born in 1980, so when he's 10 and murders people, it's 1990.


Factual error: Federal institutions have strict rules for inmates or patients based on the reason for their incarceration, including substituting metal utensils with safer plastic ones. Despite being convicted of brutally killing his family, Myers is still trusted with a sharp metal fork - resulting in the nurse's death.

Dr. Samuel Loomis: I really don't know what else to say, Michael. You haven't said a word for fifteen years! Christ, that's a lifetime. That's nearly twice as long as my first marriage. Wow. It's strange, Michael. In a weird way you've become like... like my best friend. Huh! That just shows you how fucked up my life is. I've done all I possibly can for you, so I'm sorry to tell you that this is going to be my last day. Michael, I have to move on. I'm sorry.

Trivia: In the scene where the two janitors first enter Michael's room when he is an adult, when the shot shows Michael and all of his masks, one of them in the middle left resembles the mask from the original 1978 version.

More trivia for Halloween

Question: Why does Laurie drop off mail (that her father gave her) to the Myers house, which is abandoned? Why bring mail to an abandoned house?


Answer: Laurie's father, Mason Strode, is a realtor who owns Strode Real Estate, and there's a realty sign post in the front yard of the old Myers house. Mason tells Laurie, "They're coming by to look at it later," so we know he's talking about people interested in buying the old property. When Michael sniffs the envelope we see the Strode Real Estate logo, and it presumably contains realtor's paperwork which is pertinent to the sale of the house, and is meant for the people who will be coming by later.
