Goofs

When young Michael grabs the knife from the kitchen drawer to kill Judith with, the knife shakes as he pulls it free, revealing it t one a fake.

Michael is given metal utensils at the asylum, despite the fact that asylums such as the one Michael is in would give out plastic utensils.

Michael’s escape occurs fifteen years after Deborah’s suicide. Dr. Loomis and Sheriff Brackett refer to it being seventeen years ago in their conversations for the film’s third act.

Trivia

Rob Zombie had originally pitched two films. The first would focus on Michael as a child and growing up in the Sanitarium, while the second would have been a full-length remake of the original.

Rob Zombie was opposed to cameos from actors in the original franchise, as he felt it would cheapen the remake. Danielle Harris’s manager had convinced Rob Zombie to let her audition.

The longest Halloween film in the entire franchise with a running time of 109 minutes for the theatrical cut and 121 minutes for the director’s cut.

Alternate Versions

Before Halloween‘s theatrical release in August 2007, an early workprint made its way to the internet and was quickly spread around. It featured many scenes that weren’t in the film’s theatrical cut, as well as an alternate ending.

When Halloween made its way to home video, an extended version of the film called the Unrated Director’s Cut was released. Running 12 minutes longer, it featured many of the scenes that were in the film’s workprint, but retooled in the order portrayed in the theatrical print.
