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.

Question: In John Carpenter's version, Michael knew who his sister was because of some kind of evil power that enabled him to recognize her. In Rob Zombie's version, he is taken to a mental institution, apparently wasn't possessed by evil and hadn't seen her in years, so how was he able to recognize her?

Chosen answer: John Carpenter's version never had the two of them as siblings. This wasn't the case until the sequel when the studio needed to add a plot twist to the film so they wouldn't be making the same exact film again. In Zombie's version, Laurie drops the mail off for her father at the Myers' house that has her address on it. That is how he begins stalking her because he goes and murders her adopted parents, but I'm not sure how he realizes they are brother and sister.

Question: From what I understand in this movie Michael Myers is some psycho kid that grew up to kill again. How is he surviving direct gunshots? Is he somehow bulletproof? I don't get it.

Chosen answer: In the original "Halloween" movie series, the Michael Myers character is evil personified. He is SO evil, in fact, that he is bulletproof and killproof. He survives all attempts to destroy him much like Jason Voorhees in the ALL the "Friday the 13th" a series.

Question: I saw this film in theaters, and from what I remember, the implication was that Loomis was killed by Michael. But when I watched the Director's Cut DVD, it seems that Loomis is still alive, albeit injured and weakened, as he grabs Michael to distract him. Was this changed from the theatrical version, or am I just not remembering properly? Because it is a fairly dramatic change in the overall story.

Chosen answer: According to IMdB, yes, the ending is different in the theatrical and Director's Cut versions, with Loomis dying in one and surviving in the other.

Question: Why is it that every policeman in the state of Illinois is not alerted to the fact that an escaped serial killer is on the loose, and how would Laurie not know that she is related to the Myers, seeing as she was adopted to a family that only lived 3 houses away, wouldn't word of mouth leak that secret?

Chosen answer: These are all answered in the movie. The institution didn't want people to panic and they knew it would be a huge embarrassment to them if everyone knew a psychopath was able to escape. As for Laurie not knowing. It is explained by the cop that when he responded to the 911 when Michael's mom killed herself he saw the baby and didn't want her to grow up with the stigma attached to the Myers family. He took her, made no record of her ever being there, and dropped her off at a hospital out of state. He then found out that the family adopted her, but I'm not sure they knew where she came from. No one knew she was Michael's sister. Had they known, she would probably have been hounded her whole life for being related to him, as her mom was. (It was mentioned that his mom was labeled Satan's mother because of Michael's actions).

Michael kills the truck driver and takes his clothes. Everything fits him perfectly, despite Michael being taller and bigger than the other guy.
