Halloween: Resurrection

Trivia: Rudy's death scene, in which he is pinned to a door with knives, is a reference to Bob's death in the original Halloween.

Trivia: Rick Rosenthal, the director of the film, makes a cameo as a professor.

Trivia: The professor in the University at the beginning is named Dr. Mixter just like the doctor who gets a syringe stabbed through his eye in Halloween 2.

Trivia: Throughout the entire film the screams you hear from the girls in the house are exactly identical.

Trivia: In Laurie's room at the hospital, you can see a crumpled up picture of Josh Hartnet who played her son.

Trivia: In Michael's older sister's room you see that the window is broken. It was broken in the first Halloween and made the same shaped crack that is still there in this one.

Trivia: The doll that Laurie puts her pills into can be seen in the original Halloween, on Laurie's dresser (desk?) during the "obscene chewing" scene.

Other mistake: After Michael kills Laurie at the beginning, he hands the knife to the inmate with the clown mask. The next kill is the cameraman for which he uses the tripod ends. A few scenes later they show Michael standing holding a knife with fresh blood on it. He hasn't killed anybody with this knife yet so where did the blood come from?

Laurie Strode: You failed, Michael. Want to know why? Because I'm not afraid of you. But what about you? Are you afraid of me? Are you afraid to die, Michael?

More quotes from Halloween: Resurrection

Question: It was revealed that the person who Laurie thought she killed wasn't Michael but somebody who Michael had subdued and placed his clothes and mask on. Why would Laurie be sent to an institution for this? She wasn't aware of the fact that she killed the wrong person until the mask was removed, and since the staff seem to know about her connection to Michael, wouldn't they consider letting her go since she was only trying to stop Michael's rampage?

Answer: At first impression, Laurie was catatonic not only from the shock of killing an innocent man, but also from a lifetime of being chased down by her murderous brother. She obviously knows from past experiences that nothing she does (including faking her own death) will stop Michael from finding her. It is later revealed she has been faking her mental issues (think when she has been hiding her regular meds in the raggedy Ann doll) and is committed only to stopping Michael, no matter what the cost. She may have also been trying to protect her son and the only way to do that is to allow herself to be institutionalized in order to lure Michael there.

Answer: It's not properly explained (nothing in this stupid movie is), but the implication is that she went a little crazy due to the guilt of killing an innocent man and was institutionalized.
