Though Jamie Lee Curtis has top billing, she only appears on screen for approximately 25 min. 21 sec. This applies only to the theatrical version; in the TV version she has a few extra scenes. See more »
When Jimmy is telling Laurie about who attacked her that night and he says "It's on right now" (referring to the media coverage), the shot from behind shows that his mouth isn't moving and he is sitting very still with his hand on her waist. See more »

Can't you ask Eddie Lee?
He's in Russellville!

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 »
This is, by far, the best sequel of all the "Halloween" films. As far as I'm concerned, the producers should have ended the series here, because, after all, it is very, very clear MICHAEL MYERS IS DEAD IN THE END.
Never mind that this is just another slasher film. Dino DeLaurentiis works his magic here, as he would do three years later with "Dune". This is one sequel that will have you on the edge of your seats to the very end. To me, what John Carpenter started, DeLaurentiis finished.
For maximum effect, see the first two "Halloween" films on Halloween, October 31, and time it so that the end of "Halloween II" falls at midnight, the morning of November 1.
"Halloween II" is a sequel masterpiece.
