The residents of Haddonfield don't know it yet... but death is coming to their small sleepy town. Sixteen years ago, a ten year old boy called Michael Myers brutally kills his step father, his elder sister and her boyfriend. Sixteen years later, he escapes from the mental institution and makes his way back to his hometown intent on a murderous rampage pursued by Dr Sam Loomis who is Michael's doctor and the only one who knows Michael's true evil. Elsewhere a shy teenager by the name of Laurie Strode is babysitting on the night Michael comes home... is it pure coincidence that she and her friends are being stalked by him?

Character Error
No asylum where a character is imprisoned as criminally insane would give inmates metal forks. They would be replaced by plastic cutlery, for exactly the reasons that they end up being used here - fear of being used as weapons to attack staff or other inmates.

Character Error
The sheriff calls the dead animal left on the grave a coyote, but it is in fact a type of fox.

When Ken Foree climbs out of his truck the wash attendant lifts the hood then goes for a hose. When the camera switches to where Ken's character is walking, you can see in the background the attendant lifts the hood and goes for the hose again.

When Laurie is walking to school and stops at the Myes' house she has no backpack, but in the following scene she is carrying one.

When Laurie is trapped in the Myers' house her hair goes from curly to straight in each shot.

In the scene where Michael Myers breaks through the bathroom door, an officer shoots him in the left shoulder. They next show Michael stabbing the officer, when he turns to the camera, the bullet hole is gone.

Errors in Geography
The Strode Realty sign in front of the Myers house has the area code of 618 which is in southern Illinois, even thought Haddonfield is set in northern Illinois and should have an area code of 815.

Revealing Mistakes
When the ten-year-old Michael Myers goes to get the knife from the drawer to kill his sister, as he removes it the knife bends slightly, revealing that it to be a fake.

Revealing Mistakes
Just after the rape scene, Michael Myers is attacked in the back by a baton by one of the hospital workers - it leaves a very noticeable long baton-shaped dent in his back, making it very obvious that he's wearing a badly padded out bodysuit.

Revealing Mistakes
When Michael Myers stabs a boy and he is attached to the wall because of the knife, the knife is sticking too far out for it to go through his body and into the wall.
John Carpenter has not seen the film and said he would not criticize the film because Rob Zombie is a friend of his.

Emma Stone auditioned for the role of Laurie Strode.

Before reinventing the legendary Halloween (1978), Rob Zombie made the wise choice to inform John Carpenter about it. In response, Carpenter encouraged Zombie to "make it [his] own".

Malcolm McDowell ruined a great number of takes by invoking hysterical laughter in the other actors.

The movie's production was delayed due to the death of Moustapha Akkad, the producer of all 8 previous movies. Akkad died of severe injuries as a result from the terrorist attacks at Jordan in 2005.

Of all the female leads (all the girls are supposed to be in high school including Judith Myers), only the actress playing Laurie, Scout Taylor-Compton was actually a teenager at the time of filming, much like how Jamie Lee Curtis who played Laurie in the original Halloween was the only girl who was a teenager.

At one point Dimension Studios considered making a crossover film featuring Pinhead from the Hellraiser (1987) series, following in the footsteps of Newline Cinema's horror crossover Freddy vs. Jason (2003). A poll was held on the official site, but response from fans was negative and the studio dropped the concept.

The movie was not released in the U.S. on Halloween weekend, as was the original, for fear of going head to head with Saw IV (2007). It was instead released two months earlier on the last weekend in August 2007.

Tyler Mane is the tallest actor to portray Michael Myers at a height of 6'9.

This is third Halloween film that Danielle Harris has been in. She first appeared in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) and Halloween 5 (1989) as Jamie Lloyd, daughter of Laurie Strode. (Her character was re-cast in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995), and then killed off.)

Before deciding to go with Rob Zombie's version, the studio was about to green light "Halloween: The Missing Years", which would have been a prequel, set within Michael Myers' early days at the Asylum.

Danielle Harris was 29 years old when she was cast as the teenage Annie Brackett. The movie was released nearly three months after her 30th birthday.

The film was mostly shot in South Pasadena, California, the same area where John Carpenter's original film was filmed. When Laurie notices Michael watching her and the girls at the library, Michael is actually standing in front of Laurie's house from the original film. Also, Laurie's house is located on the same street that Jamie Lee Curtis, Nancy Loomis and P.J. Soles walk down in the original film when Michael Myers drives past them in the station wagon.

26 minutes were trimmed from the film for its theatrical release in Brazil, so it could get a broader rating, which translates to more screening times. In the end it received a rating of 14 years (kids over 14 can watch it without parental supervision), which is not the most restrictive available, yet meant that the film could only be shown after 9pm.

The inclusion of the plot line about Michael Meyers' early days at the mental institution under the care of Sam Loomis is a nod to a plot line added in by John Carpenter for the TV viewing of the original Halloween (1978). As told by Carpenter, when the original film was first sold to TV, they demanded added scenes to replace the edited portions of the murder scenes. So Carpenter recalled "Donald Pleasance", the original Sam Loomis to film scenes of him at the hospital taking care of Michael.

In the opening scene of the movie, the song "God of Thunder" by "KISS" is played and young Michael Myers is seen wearing a KISS t-shirt. KISS is a major influence on Rob Zombie's music career and the inspiration for the make-up and costuming for his band White Zombie.

The film underwent re-shoots as a result of poor test screenings. These included a new escape for Micheal from the hospital as well as an alternate ending.

Director Rob Zombie originally wanted Danielle Harris to play Laurie Strode and Sheri Moon Zombie to play Lynda.
