→ The film’s producer is Malek Akkad, who is the son of Moustapha Akkad, the producer of the original 1978 “Halloween.” Moustapha Akkad was murdered, along with his daughter Rima (Malek’s sister), in the terrorist bombing of an Amman, Jordan hotel in 2005. Jamie Lee Curtis has recounted how the first person she saw when she came to the set for the first day of filming the 2018 film was Malek, who she remembered as a 7 year-old child visiting the set during production of the original film. She added that seeing Malek for the first time since his father’s death immediately brought her to tears.
→ Jamie Lee Curtis credits the film as living up to the original.

♦ Michael Myers killed five people. And he’s a human being, we need to understand? I’m twice divorced. And I’m a basket case.
♦ The way I raised your mother means that she hates me… but that’s she prepared for the horror’s of this world, then I can live with that.
