While Sheriff Brackett and Dr. Loomis hunt for Michael Myers, a traumatized Laurie is rushed to hospital, and the serial killer is not far behind her.
(at around 11 mins) Alice's friend Sally (the girl on the phone in the beginning of the movie) tells her the murders happened on Orange Grove. This is the actual name of the street where this film and Halloween (1978) were filmed. The houses that portray the Wallace and Doyle houses are on Orange Grove just north of Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, California.
Time's up, Jimmy. Let's go.
Jimmy: OK. OK.
Mrs. Alves: No you won't. Visiting hours are definitely over.
(at around 1h 26 mins) After the explosion and Michael is walking on fire, he is right next to the burning stretcher. The next time we see him, he is about eight feet behind the stretcher walking towards her again.
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.
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.
