Where exactly is the fictional town of Haddonfield IL?
I know that it's from Halloween and it's not real, but does anyone know what part of IL? Give sources please!
Never mind I found out what I was looking for. Livingston county... I guess they show a map somewhere and it's somewhere in the corn fields of Livingston County...

Sorry, but with it being a fictional town there is no "part" of IL to pinpoint for you. I did a search but didnt find anything closer than just IL.

The film takes place primarily in Haddonfield, Illinois. Haddonfield, NJ is the home town of screenwriter Debra Hill. Who along with Carpenter wrote the screenplay for the movie.
Director John Carpenter was raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky. In one scene, the subtitle on the screen depicts the location as "Smiths Grove, Illinois." Smiths Grove, Kentucky, is a small town of about 600 people 15 miles from Bowling Green. There are many other references to other local towns and landmarks.
There are numerous references in Carpenter's movies, particularly "Halloween" (1978) that are taken from the area surrounding the town he grew up in - Bowling Green, KY. The performance of Halloween's musical score is credited to "The Bowling Green Philharmonic." There is no Philharmonic in Bowling Green. The "orchestra" is actually John Carpenter and assorted musical friends. In one scene the subtitle depicts the location as "Smith's Grove, IL." Smith's Grove is actually a small town of about 600 people located 15 north of Bowling Green on I-65. There are also numerous references in Halloween to street names that are major roads in the greater Bowling Green area.
Since the movie was actually shot in early spring in southern California (as opposed to Illionis in late October), the crew had to buy paper leaves from a decorator and paint them in the desired autumn colors, then scatter them in the filming locations. To save money, after a scene was filmed, the leaves were collected and reused. However, as Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter note on the DVD audio commentary, the trees are quite full and green and even some palm trees can be seen, despite that in Illionis in October, the leaves would probably be mostly gone and there would be no palm trees.

I live in Illinois, and always likened Haddonfield to Springfield. That's my two cents..
