Trivia

Only film after the original to begin immediately with the Halloween theme playing over the opening credits. Coincidentally, the first and last films of the series open the same way. See more »

Goofs

(at around 37 mins) When Deckard is at the party he goes up to the opening doors and tries to sneak in. Inside you can just see a lamp and a few bronze pots on the floor but when he enters the room you can see lots and lots of furniture and objects in the room. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Laurie Strode: You've heard of the tunnel. The one we all go through sooner or later. At the end, there's a door. And waiting for you on the other side of that door is either Heaven or Hell. This is that door.

Alternate Versions

In the rough cut screened in August 2001, the opening credits were different. The film's original opening featured footage from a home video of the Myers', featuring Peter and Margaret Myers in 1962 with their three children, Judith, Michael, and a new-born Laurie, having fun in the back yard of their house. Michael can be seen in the clips trying to divert the camera away from him, as he does not want to be filmed. However, Peter manages to get him to face the camera, and zooms in on Michael's face. The shot continues zooming through Michael's "black" eyes and opens up in the sanitarium hallway. This whole sequence is to the tune of an old fifties song "Darling Angel". Also, the ending was different. Instead of taking Michael to the morgue, a woman CSI starts to investigate in the ruins of the Myers house. She leans down and shines her flashlight down into a dark crevice and Michael jumps up at her. She screams and the credits start rolling. See more »

what the heck?!...
24 April 2003 | by tripperMSee all my reviews

o.k. for those of you who don't know, the halloween "trillogy" goes like this: halloween, halloween II, and H2O. that's it. period.

we all agree that # 3 never existed. and although 4&5 were an interesting "character study" of michael, they didn't really fit in anywhere.

this last attempt at coercing hard earned money out of unsuspecting horror fans (and distraught michael fans going through withdrawls) was just plain rude.

"resurrecting" michael the way that they did, and offing lori the way they did, and the reality-tv scinerio... it was just emberassing! what an awful way to remember one of THE greatest horror legends in modern horror(1960s - 1980s)this was "the real world does horror" - poorly!
