The mask Michael wears is the exact same mask (a repainted and modified Captain Kirk mask) worn in the original Halloween (1978) film. It looks different in the sequel because the paint had faded due to a few reasons, first because Nick Castle, the original Michael, kept it in his back pocket during shoots. Also, Debra Hill kept the mask under her bed for several years until the filming of Halloween II, causing it to collect dust and yellow because Hill was a heavy smoker. Also, the mask appears wider because Dick Warlock is shorter and stockier than Nick Castle, so the mask fit his head differently. As the producers thought it would be the final sequel in the series, they let Warlock keep the mask, scalpel, boots, jumpsuit, and knife used in filming. When they decided to revive Michael in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988), the producers realized they had made a mistake and never again gave props out to the cast and crew, therefore subsequent sequels used different masks that looked rather different.

(at around 9 mins) Near the beginning of the film, when Michael walks into the Elrod house, Mrs. Elrod is seen standing in front of the door from the kitchen to the living room, and when Michael picks up the knife, she's seen standing to the side inside the living room. See more »
Look, Jimmy, rule number one, never get involved with a patient. Nurses, that's another story. But patient is no good, it never works out.

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 »
Although the UK theatrical version was unedited, the video and initial DVD release were cut by 17 seconds by the BBFC to edit the scene of a woman being dunked in a boiling hydrotherapy pool. All the cuts were waived for the 2002 DVD issue. See more »
MORE OF THE NIGHT HE CAME HOME - IN THE EMPTIEST HOSPITAL EVER!
Continuing on from where the original left off - literally; it picks right up, and continues through the same night (cue some continuity goofs as though still set on the same night, it is filmed almost two years later).
Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, and Rick Rosenthal does a good job with the directing (he's the man behind the most recent Halloween movie "Halloween: Resurrection" - a sequel to the original, this one, and "H20") - though of course he is by far inferior to John Carpenter.
Interestingly this features probably the emptiest hospital ever committed to celluiod. Apart from a few babies, Laurie Strode seems to be the only patient!!
