Cinematographic Process:


  • Ellie Grimbridge: Irish Halloween masks?
    Daniel Challis: In California, you never know.
  • Ellie Grimbridge: I feel like a goldfish.
    Daniel Challis: Company town.
  • Harry Grimbridge: They're going to kill us. All of us! All of us!
  • Conal Cochran: You don't really know much about Halloween. You thougt no further than the strange custom of having your children wear masks and go out begging for candy.


  • Michael Myers does appear briefly in this film, on a television advertising the original Halloween. It comes near the beginning when a character is drinking in a bar.
  • A milk factory was used for the setting of the Silver Shamrock factory.
  • The music playing on the radio when Marge Guttman notices the tag on the floor was also played in John Carpenter's The Fog.
  • After Michael Myers died in Halloween II, the plan by John Carpenter was to make a new Halloween movie each year, each telling a different Halloween related story. After this movie failed at the box office, the film-makers decided to Bring Michael back to life for future sequels.
  • When Challis fills in the register at the motel office, he scans the list of names for evidence of Ellie's father's stay. All of the other names on the list are the names of the crew.
