There are two stories behind who had ownership of the mask before filming. Story one goes that Debra Hill had the mask for the period between 1978 to 1981 in a shoe box under her bed and the smoke caused it to yellow. This is the story most people know. Story two is that Nick Castle had the original mask on display in his home until Debra Hill asked to borrow it to film the sequel, telling Castle that he would get it back at the end of filming on Halloween II (1981), but Castle never got the mask back. It is theorized that Castle could have had the stunt mask and that Debra Hill had asked to borrow it, as the stunt mask is the one destroyed in the sequel, and also because Dick Warlock claimed that he had kept the original mask after filming wrapped for 20+ years.

In the ambulance, Jimmy tells Laurie they're taking her to "the clinic". The radio announcer also reveals that Laurie was taken "across town to Haddonfield Memorial Clinic". However, the jackets that the medics wear, as well as all the signs at the hospital, indicate that it's actually Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. See more »

The Spanish version is said to feature the alternate ending and several outtakes, including more conversations between the nurse and Laurie, the boy and Laurie, and many scary shots, such as the electricity going out, etc. See more »
Halloween II has some really effective scares, and a lot of imaginative sequences.
The music is really effective. The acting isn't all that good but Halloween II turns out to be a fairly good horror movie with effective scares, and still the minimum of explicit gore. However, you can tell it was made on a very tight budget, and it does look rather miserable when compared to the later sequels.
Relatively good, and deserves 6 out of 10.
