Audio/visual unsynchronised

The Nissan Truck Laurie droves around in sounds like it has a v8 engine rather than the 4 cylinder engine that is supposed to be in there.

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.

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.

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.

Sherriff Hawkins was a deputy in 1978. Let's assume that he was just barely 18 at that time (which is also unlikely) that would make him 68 years old now. Ususally he would be retired by this time instead of still being on active duty.

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.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

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.
