Halloween Trivia Questions & Answers | Halloween
Meanwhile, Lynda meets up with her boyfriend Bob Simms (Nick Mennell) at Michael's abandoned home. Michael appears, murders them, and. At the urging of Bob Weinstein, co-founder of the franchise's .. but in the final version of the film Lynda and Bob are both killed in the same ways they Paul, but she had to go meet him at his place (and never got that far). On Halloween evening, as the Myers family was watching TV (The Thing (From . Lynda was there to party and have sex with her boyfriend Bob Simms (Nick.
Since no one wants to take him trick-or-treating, Michael decides to spend his night killing people instead. Ronnie goes first, then Steve, and finally Judith. While killing Judith, Michael swaps his clown mask for a mask Steve brought over to the house, having bought it at a hardware store earlier. The iconic white mask, which looks better here than it has in any Halloween movie since the original. Unfortunately, this perfect version of the mask is introduced being worn by a horny teenager who wants to have sex with his girlfriend while wearing it, then we're treated to the amusing sight of this massive mask sitting on the head of a year-old kid.
As trashy as this opening stretch of the film is, at least it's an improvement over the draft of the script that leaked online during production.
In that one, Judith caught Michael masturbating to his pictures of dead animals. Instead of killing the bully Wesley, Michael lured a sweet little girl into the woods to kill, then urinated on her body. When he walks into Judith's bedroom before killing her, the script had her take a moment to fondle her breasts It's very good that none of those things made it to the screen.
This Halloween remake, or Zombieween as I like to call it, was not a troubled production, but there was a few days of additional photography that changed things enough that there are actually three different cuts of the film floating out there - a workprint cut, which never got an official release, the theatrical cut, and the unrated director's cut. Most of the major differences in these cuts come during the middle stretch, which shows Michael's time at Smith's Grove Sanitarium.
There was so much material shot for the film that there's still 20 minutes of deleted scenes as well, including one with John Carpenter's ex-wife Adrienne Barbeau as a character who was cut from the film. The unrated cut has the most substance here, adding in more moments between Michael and Dr. Loomis, putting in scenes where we hear Loomis's evaluations of Michael's behavior as he detaches from reality, hides behind masks he makes, and withdraws into himself. Deborah visits Michael for a while, but after he murders a nurse Sybil Danning - named Wynn in reference to a Halloween 1 character who returned in Halloween 6 - at the end of one of her visits and Deborah sees what he's capable of firsthand, she commits suicide.
In the workprint, there's a possibility that Michael might be transferred out of Smith's Grove, so he is taken in front of a group of decision makers played by the likes of Udo Kier, Clint Howard, and Tom Towles. His transfer is denied. In the theatrical cut, that boardroom scene isn't in there and Michael actually is being transferred on Halloween Eve. The security guards overseeing the transfer include characters played by Bill Moseley, Leslie Easterbrook, and Tom Towles - not as the character he played in the workprint.
In the middle of the transfer, Michael busts loose of the shackles and massacres the guards. The unrated cut gives him a different method of escape, and it's a tasteless hold-over from the script that should have been left out entirely, like the masturbation and urination. Here a couple guards - Lew Temple as Noel and Children of the Corn 's Courtney Gains as his cousin Kendall - have decided to rape a new female patient Olja Hrustic on the night before Halloween, and they choose to carry out this rape in Michael's room.
Noel does this to make fun of Michael while violating the other patient, and he pays for it with his life It's really appalling that throwing in a rape out of nowhere was deemed an acceptable way of facilitating Michael's escape. Noel never seemed like an intelligent character, but I'm not sure anyone would be stupid enough to taunt this adult version of Michael, who is bigger than the character has ever been before.
Played by former wrestler Tyler Mane, he's a hulking, 6'8" beast In the workprint, Michael just takes a set of keys from one of the dead rapists and strolls out of the hospital. In the unrated cut, he kills a few more people on his way out - and these scenes are in the theatrical cut as well, after the transfer escape replaces the rape escape. Among the extra victims is Danny Trejo as Ismael Cruz, a guard who was always nice and respectful to him.
Ismael doesn't deserve what he gets, and his fate is even worse in the theatrical cut, because Noel doesn't get any comeuppance in that one.
There's a scene where Noel is antagonistic toward Michael, calling him names and threatening him, while Ismael is there to calm things down. Yet Noel survives the theatrical cut, and Ismael dies. As Michael kills him, Ismael pleads with him, saying "I was good to you, Mikey.
Big Joe is taking a toilet break at a truck wash when Michael attacks and kills him, and this is the character Michael steals his coveralls from. Once Michael has those coveralls, about halfway through the film, we've reached modern day Halloween and Zombieween fully dives into remake territory.
From that point on, Zombie is just remixing the elements that Carpenter and Hill put in place back in The same story is told: Michael returns to his home town of Haddonfield, Illinois with the intention of tracking down his younger sister. The Strodes are closest Zombie ever comes to writing non-dysfunctional people.
When Laurie makes an obscene gesture with a bagel during breakfast, something to show that this Laurie isn't quite as prudish as the original was, Cynthia even gets upset with her about it. Loomis, who resigned as Michael's doctor some time earlier, ditches his tour promoting his book The Devil's Eyes: The Story of Michael Myers to follow his former patient to Haddonfield in hopes of catching up with him before too much damage is done.
Meanwhile, Michael is somehow immediately able to deduce that Laurie Strode is his sister and proceeds to stalk her around town - but only after he has gone home to retrieve his classic mask from where he hid it beneath some floorboards. When he puts it back on, it's not the perfect replication it was before - after fifteen years of being stored in a less-than-ideal environment, it's covered with cracks and rot.
Laurie goes to school and hangs out with her pals, updated versions of the characters Annie and Lynda. Much more abrasive versions of the characters - I never liked Annie and Lynda in the first movie all that much, but I definitely wouldn't want to be around this Annie and Lynda.
Especially Lynda, she is very unpleasant. I do like the actresses, though. Lynda is played by Kristina Klebe, while we have the return of Halloween royalty in the role of Annie: Laurie and Annie have to spend their Halloween night babysitting kids who live in the same neighborhood. Both of those child actors are awesome and Gisondo is still around, appearing in things like the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, which is a great thing. It's a shame Stewart isn't still appearing on the screen as well.
I don't know if she's doing any stage acting, but she hasn't acted in film or television since Lynda doesn't babysit, so she's free to hook up with her boyfriend Bob Nick Mennelland they decide to do their hooking up in the old, abandoned Myers house. A very bad idea, since Michael is lurking around in there. Originally, Zombie just had Bob getting stabbed to death while going back out to his van to get more beer, but in the final version of the film Lynda and Bob are both killed in the same ways they died in Carpenter's film.
Bob is impaled to a wall, then Michael puts on a sheet ghost costume so he can pretend to be Bob and get close enough to Lynda to strangle her to death. Lynda's body will later be found in the basement of the Myers house. Also down there is a Myers family headstone, which Michael stole from a nearby cemetery. Zombie shot two different versions of the cemetery scene. In the first version, a caretaker played by Ezra Buzzington, who was in the remake of The Hills Have Eyes the year before this, catches Michael messing with the headstone and gets killed.
That scene was replaced in reshoots with a cemetery scene very much like the one in Halloween ' Loomis is led to the Myers grave by a caretaker played by Sid Haig and they find that the headstone is missing when they reach it.
In '78, nothing was left at Judith's grave but the hole the headstone used to sit in. Here, Michael has replaced the headstone with a homemade one with a dead animal stuck on it. Zombie also puts his stamp on the scene by replacing the unnerving dialogue Carpenter and Hill wrote for their caretaker with banter between his caretaker and Loomis that includes more cussing and laugh lines.
Annie only plays babysitter for a little while before walking Lindsey over to the Doyle house, ditching the kid with Laurie and Tommy so she can hook up with her boyfriend Paul Max Van Ville. The original Annie also gave up on babysitting in favor of seeing Paul, but she had to go meet him at his place and never got that far.
This Paul comes over to have sex with this Annie in the Wallace house, so he gets to be part of the body count. When Laurie takes Lindsey back home later that night, they find the place a bloody mess and Annie barely clinging to life. This begins the climactic chase sequence of Michael pursuing Laurie so he can be reunited with his little sister, killing or injuring anyone who gets in his way.
Loomis sit outside in the gardens of the sanitarium. Loomis tells Michael he had to pull some strings to get Michael outside. He says it will be good for Michael to see a bit of greenery. Michael keeps saying, "I need to get out of here". Michael keeps saying this over and over. Loomis says that is not going to happen for along time. Michael then says, "Then I have nothing more to say".
Michael is true to his word and does not speak another word again. In the movie it is never really explained why Michael keeps saying that he needs to get over of there. In my opinion I think it is because Michael knows he is slipping into a dark place in his mind. I think he knows this is a place he can never return from. Rob Zombie has left a great room of room in the movie for speculation.
This is truly one of my favorites. It is more like an extension to the original because it gives you answers to questions you may have had and throws in a lot of new information.
It is a black velvet painting. The death of JFK, to this day, is still a mystery. There are theories out there that the mob did it. Some people say Cubans had him done in. Some say there was more then one shooter. I truly believe that the truth behind the assassination is known. But we will never be privy to that information. His request for freedom is thus denied. Later that night two drunk guards take out a new patient, take her to Michael's room and rape her.
What does Michael do? He kills both guards and escape with their keys. After Michael kills one of the guards he takes his keys and escapes the facility. He starts to move towards Haddonfield to find his younger sister Laurie. Kiss After we saw the Meyer's house at the beginning, Michael was then shown in his room wearing a Kiss shirt. Kiss is known as "The Hottest Band in the World". They all had resided in New York. Kiss You have to pay close attention if you want to see it well.
You can see it just before Michael sits down. It's just the letters though. A picture is on the shirt as well.
Annie does not die. Laurie is walking Lindsay back over to her house. Laurie calls in the house to Annie and tells her she better be decent. Laurie asks Lindsay to turn on the light. Lindsay turns on the light and screams.
Paul is hanging dead from the ceiling with a pumpkin on his head.

Laurie sees Annie lying bloody on the floor. Laurie tells Lindsay to run home and call the police. Laurie goes into the kitchen and dials the police as well. Michael is behind the door and closes it as Lindsay leaves. Annie starts to call out to Laurie to warn her that Michael is coming. Mason comes out behind her and tells her not to forget to drop the papers off at the Myers' house. We see Mason's car parked in front of the house with a Strode Realty sign on the side. She yells to him she won't forget.
Mason tells her that he is trying to sell the house and it is very important. She reassures him again that she won't forget. Mason tells Laurie he loves her and Laurie says the same back.
As Laurie is walking away Cynthia comes out of the house and tells Mason he forgot his briefcase. Laurie turns around and smiles as she sees her parents kissing. Laurie is walking towards the house when she is stopped by Tommy. Tommy is the boy Laurie babysits. Tommy asks Laurie why she is walking this walk to school.
She tells him she has to drop off some papers at the Myers' house. When Tommy and Laurie get to the Myer's house there is a empty real estate sign holder in the yard. Tommy tells Laurie that she isn't supposed to go up there.

Laurie takes the papers out and puts them in the mail slot. She messes with Tommy by acting like someone is pulling the mail from the other side. Little does she know Michael is on the other side of the door. He takes the papers and smells them. On the envelop as Michael puts it to his face we see a Strode Realty sticker on it. Laurie and Tommy walk away.
Jell-O Michael and his mom sit at a table in the vacant cafeteria. Michael being isolated from other people is a common scenario throughout the movie. Michael takes a bite of his red Jell-O. Michael says, "Mommy is everyone at home alright? Debra seems a little taken back by this question. She is quiet for a few seconds. She then replies, "Everything is fine at home. Michael takes another bite of his Jell-O. Debra stares at Michael with a sad look on her face. At this point she believes Michael does not know what he did.
When he asks her the question he is most sincere. He is happy with her answer and immediately goes back to his Jell-O. Jell-O is one of my all time favorite desserts. It has been around since The first flavors included lemon and raspberry. A very popular way to eat it is with fruit inside it. Jell-O comes in sugar free also which is great for those of us watching our calorie intake.
What girl's name does he call Michael? Michelle Ronnie tells Deborah, that Michael is in serious need of some discipline. Ronnie then makes several crude remarks in regards to Michael's sexuality.
Judith tells Ronnie to leave Michael alone. When Michael walks into the room, Ronnie says, "Hello Michelle, my belle". Bathroom Michael came out of the bathroom stall and went to wash his hands when two boys came into the bathroom. The one boy saw Michael at the sink and began talking trash on his mother. This was the last time we saw Michael in school at the age of eleven.
They begin to pick on him. First they are saying some rude things about his sister, then they say something else which causes Michael to attack one of them.
What is it that they bully Michael with? That his mother is a stripper. After one of the bullies, Wesley Rhoades, says something rude about Michael's mother, Michael attacks him in blind rage. The two bullies however easily overpower him and press him with all their weight on the floor. Luckily for Michael the principal just enters and breaks them up. Queen of Sheba Annie calls over to Tommy's house to speak to Laurie. Annie tells Laurie she will be bringing the Queen of Sheba over soon.
Annie walks into the living room where Lindsay is watching television, and tells her to come on they are going to see Tommy. Annie and Lindsay walk over to Tommy's house. Annie is carrying a pumpkin for Lindsay, and Lindsay is carrying a bowl of popcorn Annie made for her. When Laurie tells Lindsay it is time to leave, Tommy tells her to get out.
Lindsay tells Tommy who does he think he is talking to. Lindsay says she is the Queen of Sheba and he needs to bow down and worship her. Mother Teresa Laurie, Linda, and Annie are sitting in the school's library supposedly studying. Annie is pleading with Laurie to watch Lindsey for her tonight.
Annie wants to spend some time alone with Paul at the Wallace's house. The Wallace's are Lindsey's parents. Annie wants Laurie to pretend like she is watching Lindsey. Linda says she thought Paul was grounded and Annie says he got off.
Laurie looks out the window while the other two are talking and sees Michael across the street. It looks like Michael is staring right at her.
Annie continues to plead with Laurie. Laurie asks about what to do if the Wallaces come home and Annie says the mom is a lush and won't be home until late. Annie persists and Laurie tells her she doesn't like to lie.
Annie asks, "God, what are you Mother Teresa? The girls all start to laugh at this. Laurie finally agrees to watch Lindsay. Annie tells her she loves her and Laurie says the same thing back. Laurie tells Annie she owes her for this. Mother Teresa was a caretaker for the poor and suffering.
She was born in and died in One thing I recall about her death is that Princess Diana died around the same time. Mother Teresa's death was overshadowed by Princess Di. I believe this wouldn't have bothered her because she lived for others and not herself.
The board announces that Dr. Loomis will be speaking that day. Samuel is inside the auditorium and is standing behind a podium. Behind Samuel is a blown up picture of Michael. Michael looks like a disturbed person in the picture.
