- ...and now the earth will run with blood again!
- Witchcraft enters the computer age, and a different terror begins.
- The night no one comes home.
- The Halloween horror continues.
- Conal Cochran: You don't really know much about Halloween. You thought no further than the strange custom of having your children wear masks and go out begging for candy.
Conal Cochran: Enjoy the horror-thon, doctor... and don't forget to watch the big giveaway afterwards. Daniel Challis: Why, Cochran, why? Conal Cochran: Do I need a reason? Mr. Kupfer was right, you know... I do love a good joke and this is the best ever, a joke on the children. But there's a better reason... you don't really know much about Halloween... you thought no further than the strange custom of having your children wear masks and go out begging for candy. [pauses] Conal Cochran: It was the start of the year in our old Celtic lands, and we'd be waiting... in our houses of wattles and clay. The barriers would be down, you see, between the real and the unreal, and the dead might be looking in... to sit by our fires of turf. [pauses] Conal Cochran: Halloween... the festival of Samhain! The last great one took place three thousand years ago, when the hills ran red... with the blood of animals and children. Daniel Challis: Sacrifices. Conal Cochran: It was part of our world... our craft. Daniel Challis: Witchcraft. Conal Cochran: To us, it was a way of controlling our environment. It's not so different now... it's time again. In the end... we don't decide these things, you know... the planets do. They're in alignment, and it's time again. The world's going to change tonight, doctor, I'm glad you'll be able to watch it. And... happy Halloween.
Harry Grimbridge: They're going to kill us. All of us! All of us!
Daniel Challis: I saw something that night... I don't know, your father came into the hospital. He- I thought he was crazy, out of his mind. He's hanging onto a Halloween mask, he wouldn't let it go... And what he said was, "They're gonna kill us all". And in a little while he was dead. And I don't know what the hell is going on!
Ellie Grimbridge: Irish Halloween masks? Daniel Challis: In California, you never know.
- The original writer of the story was Nigel Kneale but he sued the producers to take his name off the movie after seeing how violent it was.
A milk factory was used for the setting of the Silver Shamrock factory.
After Michael Myers died at the end of Halloween II (1981), the plan by John Carpenter was to make a new "Halloween" movie each year, each telling a different Halloween-related story. After this movie underperformed at the box office, the film-makers decided to bring Michael back to life for future sequels.
The tagline "The night nobody comes home" is a play on the original Halloween movie's tagline, "The night HE came home."
Michael Myers does appear briefly in this film, on a television advertising the original Halloween (1978). It comes near the beginning when Dan Challis is drinking in a bar.
