"WHAT'S THIS LIFE FOR"
More Movie Taglines:
- This summer, terror won't be taking a vacation.
- Blood is thicker than Water.
- 20 years ago, HE changed the face of Halloween. Tonight, he's back!
- Trick or Treat. Kill or Die. It's That Time of Year Again.
- The face of pure evil is back for Laurie Strode. 20 years later.........
- Laurie Strode: How about you? Are you tired of my bullshit? Will Brennan: I'm a counselor; I'm attracted to it.
Will Brennan: What should I do? Laurie Strode: Try to live.
Tony: Hasn't anyone ever told you that second-hand smoke kills? Nurse Marion: Yeah, but they're all dead.
Laurie Strode: My brother killed my sister. Will Brennan: How did he do that? Laurie Strode: With a really big, sharp kitchen knife.
Norma Watson: Oh. Miss Tate. I didn't mean to make you jump. It's Halloween. I guess everyone's entitled to one good scare. Laurie Strode: I've had my share.
- Charles S. Dutton originally had a small role in the film as a detective, however his part was removed as script rewrites came in.
During the scene where Norma is leaving, she stands in front the car from Psycho (1960). The music playing in the background at this part is also from Psycho. Janet Leigh, who plays Norma, played Marion in Psycho. The license plate on the car is also the same as the second car Marion buys in Psycho, NFB 418, which are Norman Bates' initials.
On the television in the girls' room a clip from Scream 2 (1997) is showing, reciprocating numerous Halloween (1978) references and clips in _Scream (1996)_ . However, according to producer Moustapha Akkad when the scene was filmed, the girls were actually watching So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993), making an entirely different joke: a movie featuring Michael Myers had its characters watching Mike Myers. The clip was changed to Scream 2 (1997) in post-production.
When Molly is in the classroom, she spots Michael outside the school and gets interrupted by the teacher, and when she looks again he is gone, just like Jamie Lee Curtis did in Halloween (1978).
The director and writers decided to treat this movie as if Halloweens 3-6 never took place. This was a decision made to keep the plot simple and focus on the Laurie character.
