* ArtisticLicense: The ''Day of the Dead'' graphic novel prequel depicts witches in 1400s era Europe and Native Americans in the 1800s era United States as Wiccans, despite said religion not existing until the 20th Century. (Unless the writer assumed all pagan religions are basically Wicca, it just comes off as bizarre.)

** In ''Seasons Greetings'', the short that marked Sam's debut, was the man who tried to beat him to death a reprehensible thug [[BullyingADragon who didn't know what he was getting into]], or someone who ''knew'' what Sam was and tried to get rid of him before he caused any trouble?

* CrossoverShip: Non-romantic, but a lot of fans like to portray Sam and [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Michael Meyers]] as close friends.

** Did the School Bus Kids [[spoiler: kill the other children to help Rhonda]]? Alternatively, however, jack o'laterns seem to have a protective power in this universe, so its possible that [[spoiler: once they were smashed, the kids just unleashed their rage on whoever happened to be there]]..

* VindicatedByHistory: This film's ScrewedByTheNetwork status is legendary. It was dumped on DVD two years after it's intended release, apparently never to be heard from again. The combination of Dougherty's persistence in marketing his pet project, and the film's absolutely rabid fanbase, turned that around. At this point every critic on the internet with even a passing interest in horror films has reviewed it, and every Halloween the number of people aware of it continues to balloon. Among many horror fans it's now seen as the standard by which all other horror-comedies, anthologies, or Halloween-related movies in general are judged.

* It's clear the [[spoiler: werewolves]] must know what Sam is if they tolerate his presence without comment. Does this mean they're friendly to him? Or just terrified of him?
* Were all the schoolbus kids actually violent in life, or just mentally ill in a school system that didn't respect their needs? They were chained up, but there are certainly plenty of cases in RealLife of harmless mentally ill people being treated no better. There certainly showed no sign of malice in the flashback.

* Did Rhonda think Macey and her friends were still pulling a joke on her, or did she know that the [[spoiler: ghosts of the dead school bus kids were real and just left them to die?]]
** Alternatively, did she [[spoiler: remember Macey saying that the elevator would only hold three people safely, and thus assume that they'd throw her out and leave her to die?]]
** Another possibility: the other children [[spoiler: had already presented themselves to Rhonda as being dead. It's possible she simply ''believed'' them...]]
** Yet another possibility (wow she's a fun character): she seems to be the only person in the movie who Sam actually likes (the best anyone else gets is indifference), likely because they both believe obsessively in the rules of Halloween...they broke the rules, she couldn't interfere with the punishment...
** When she walked out of the elevator, was she in shock, or TranquilFury.
