The kids watch the opening of The Thing from Another World on TV. Carpenter would later re-make this film himself in 1982 as The Thing.
Inside Laurie's bedroom there is a poster of a painting by James Ensor (1860-1949). Ensor was a Belgian expressionist painter who used to portray human figures wearing grotesque masks.
The name of the sheriff is " Leigh Brackett". This was the name of the screenwriter of Howard Hawks' classic Rio Bravo, which was the inspiration for John Carpenter's previous film, Assault on Precinct 13.
Halloween was shot in 21 days in the spring of 1978. Made on a budget of $300,000, it became the highest-grossing independent movie ever made at that time.
All of the actors wore their own clothes, since there was no money for a costume department. Jamie Lee Curtis went to J.C. Penney for Laurie Strode's wardrobe. She spent less than a hundred dollars for the entire set.
