* MamaBear: In the original movie, Laurie had no qualms attacking Michael in self defense. In H20, she really lets him have it when he attacks her son.

** Though the film does very, very subtley hint at events from movies IV-VI, indicating that they may, to some degree, have happened.



* {{Recut}}: There's a TV Cut that trims the violence and cuss words, but also has some alternate scenes. One added scene gives the counselor played by Alan Arkin some development by revealing that his mother cheated on his traveling salesman father, and he got blamed for knowing, but doing nothing.

* ShoutOut: One character is named Norma Watson after PJ Sole's role in the first film adaptation of ''Film/{{Carrie|1976}}''. Soles also played Lynda in the original ''Halloween''.
** There is also a cameo by Janet Leigh, mother of Jamie Lee Curtis and star of ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', which is the Spiritual Ancestor to the original ''Halloween''. Janet Leigh drives the car she drove in Psycho, and her scene is scored with the music from that film.
** One of the teens who Nurse Loomis encounters is wearing [[FridayThe13th a hockey mask]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Michael drives from Haddonfield, Illinois to Northern California within 1-2 days. Even if he'd driven nonstop--which he didn't, he had to stop because his car broke down and steal another--that's impossible.


Added DiffLines:

* OddballInTheSeries: Alternate continuity or not, this is the first--and only--film in the series to not take place in Haddonfield (the prologue notwithstanding). It also takes place over several days, whereas the other films took place over one.
