Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

At one point, Laurie Strode mentions that Michael Myers killed five people in 1978. That would be incorrect because he killed only four people which includes the truck driver, Annie, Linda, and Bob. However, during this scene, there is no mention of the year 1978. Laurie simply says that Michael killed 5 people, and this is including his sister Judith.

Continuity 

As Allyson is walking with her friends along a sidewalk discussing her grandmother they pass a lawn decoration that is a tombstone with RIP. There is an edit to a wider shot during the same sentence, but now they are passing by a plastic skull positioned in front of a tree that had not been there.

At around 86 minutes in the film, when Michael Myers has smashed the window pane in the door and is holding Laurie Strode a foot in the air trying to choke her, she manages with her right hand to bring a sawed-off shotgun up from her right side of her body raising it towards Michael Myer's arm that's gripping her. When she shoots the gun, his left hand is free rather than still strangling her. After his hand is blown apart, only then she drops to the ground. Had his hand been free in reality, she would have dropped to ground well before this moment.

Errors in geography 

Although the film is set in Northern Illinois, there are numerous palm trees and cypresses which can be seen in the background.

Neither tree grows in Illinois.

Factual errors 

When Aaron is pumping gas at the gas station, the pump is not actually pumping any fuel as shown by the display being blank. When he finishes pumping gas later, the pump shows the gallons and cost on the display like normal.

In the asylum courtyard, the patients are chained to stationary cinder blocks. The safety perimeter around each patient is marked with a large yellow square - to match the checkerboard ground-cover. As chains can move 360-degrees, the safety area 'should' be a large yellow circle. ... Also, the cinder blocks aren't even positioned in the center of the safety squares.

When Sheriff Hawkins enter the house on the domestic disturbance call, he yells out "Haddonfield Sheriff's Department". The patch on his jacket says "Warren County Sheriff". Haddonfield is an incorporated municipality and would not have a county sheriff patrolling but rather a police chief, as sheriffs are county level law enforcement and the municipal police would be the Haddonfield Police Dept.

Miscellaneous 

When Michael Myers walks around Laurie's house, the view from the basement shows gaps, dust and even his footsteps through the floor. Earlier the floor was shown to be consisting of square floor tiles without gaps.

The secret door to their "hidden" basement. Opened slower in the earlier part of the movie. (Like a vault door, even sounded heavy as if it was sliding on stone) Once the action starts it opens much faster, not as noisy and even Michael can rip it up off the floor.
