*** Interestingly the copycat killer setup would've explained why Michael had no burn scars in ''H20'', a pretty glaring SeriesContinuityError.

** One draft of the ending scene had Michael say Laurie's name to her face [[spoiler: moments before she decapitates him]]. This would've been the very first and possibly ''only'' time we actually hear Michael speak in the entire franchise up to that point.

*** Interestingly, some aspects of this version do remain in the final script. For instance, in ''Film/Halloween4TheReturnOfMichaelMyers'', it's explained that Laurie had died in a car accident. H20 retconned this by explaining that she faked her death. All of this is kept in the final version of the movie, as it was too ingrained in the film's plot and message to do away with. Interestingly, the film also doesn't outright state that IV-VI didn't happen, and in addition a pair of bloody-scissors can be clearly seen during the opening credits, referencing Rachel's death in ''Film/Halloween5TheRevengeOfMichaelMyers''.

** The character played by Creator/JanetLeigh gets in a car that is similar to one she drove in ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', with a piece of film's score playing in the background. She also tells Laurie that the shower is clogged - a reference to her character's famous death in the film. The character was intended as an ActorAllusion to PJ Soles - as it was named after her character from ''Film/{{Carrie 1976}}''.

* {{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.
* ThrowItIn: LL Cool J ad-libbed the line "and comb your hair", inspired by Josh Hartnett's messy hair.

* FollowTheLeader: Much of the film is heavily influenced by ''Film/{{Scream}}'', which had revived the slasher genre just over a year before this film came out. Dimension Films (who produced both movies), got Kevin Williamson (writer of ''Scream'') on board to produce and write this film. Even it's original musical score from John Ottman was largely scrapped in favor of recycled music cues from Marco Beltrami's score for ''Scream''. Both films largely follow the same formula with an "opening victim," snarky references to other slasher films, cameos, and Michael Myers was even supposed to be a killer-in-disguise in the original script (see below).
