Halloween

Trivia: When Michael's carrying an unconscious Laurie, this mirrors when he carried a dead Annie in the original movie.

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.

Trivia: Aside from the more obvious relations between the original and the remake (i.e. "Don't Fear the Reaper", etc), one interesting one is how Michael acquires his trademark jumpsuit. In the original, it's implied he kills a trucker and steals his (we see his dead body in a field left with Michael's robes). Sure enough, in the remake Michael also gets the jumpsuit from a trucker - of course this time the death is plainly visible.

Trivia: The clown pants and the mask wore by Michael when he is 10 resemble the original worn by him in the 1978 version.

Other mistake: In the original ending, after Laurie is pulled out of the cop car, Loomis is able to reason with Michael to let her go. After he does, he is shot to death by the police. This was obviously changed, but when Loomis is reasoning with him in the final cut, you can still see the police standing behind him. (01:46:00)

Suggested correction: The police came anyways. He is a wanted killer, after all.

During the timestamp above, an officer standing behind Loomis with their gun ready while he's talking to Michael, but besides these shots, the officer is nowhere to be found. In the alternate ending, this confrontation is completely different as cops are shown actually pulling up behind Loomis. You are able to see that shots from the alt ending are used in the final movie, thus making the mistake valid.

Laurie Strode: What?
Lynda: Calls my dad and tells him what I said. Yeah, that C-U-N-T needs to get laid.
Laurie Strode: What did your dad say?
Lynda: Oh, who cares? I'll just give him the little sweetie pants princess suck up routine: "Daddy's little pookie would never say something like that!"

More quotes from Halloween

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?

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).
