There are two stories behind who had ownership of the mask before filming. Story one goes that Debra Hill had the mask for the period between 1978 to 1981 in a shoe box under her bed and the smoke caused it to yellow. This is the story most people know. Story two is that Nick Castle had the original mask on display in his home until Debra Hill asked to borrow it to film the sequel, telling Castle that he would get it back at the end of filming on Halloween II (1981), but Castle never got the mask back. It is theorized that Castle could have had the stunt mask and that Debra Hill had asked to borrow it, as the stunt mask is the one destroyed in the sequel, and also because Dick Warlock claimed that he had kept the original mask after filming wrapped for 20+ years.

At the beginning of the film, Mrs. Elrod is watching a news report about the murders; this takes place in front of the well lit Wallace house with pumpkin on the porch. Later, Laurie is being placed in the ambulance; if one looks carefully to the left of the screen, one can see that the Wallace house is dark, void of reporters, and there;s no pumpkin on the porch.

Michael Myers (age 23) is listed in the ending credits. The film takes place in 1978 when Michael Myers is 21 years old, which is also stated by Dr. Loomis in the movie. See more »
The gruesome shot where a nurse gets a syringe in her temple was toned down in the German version. This however didn't stop the censors from banning the film. See more »
The last good horror movie featuring Michael Myers.
As far as I am concerned this was the last Halloween movie with Myers worth watching. I prefer the third movie which has nothing to do with him to all the mess that follows. This movie is a continuation of the first as it is still the same night. Myers has of course gotten up and Jamie Lee has been taken to a hospital to recuperate from her wounds. Of course this one tries to shock us with its revelations and such, but nothing to shocking. There are kills and once again Dr. Loomis is obsessed with getting Myers. Some good kills are to be found as is to be expected. Though I always feel sorry for the guy that gets hit by the car as he is obviously not Myers. There is a television version of this one that totally blows as it is very toned down and they even have a happier ending. Watch the uncut theater version as it is much better.
