Anyone Notice the Goof about Brackett's Retirement?
Halloween II was made in 1981, but it was still set on Halloween night of 1978.
When Loomis goes into the police station, (which is now Halloween of 1988), he asks for Sheriff Brackett and one cop says, "Brackett retired in '81." He should've instead said, "Brackett retired in '78."
It's a goof because II came out in '81 and the cop was referring to the year it came out instead of 1978 when it was actually set. Just a minor brain fart by the writers, I suppose.
