Laurie Strode, now the dean of a Northern California private school with an assumed name, must battle the Shape one last time, as the life of her own son hangs in the balance.
During the opening credits, there's a yearbook photo with Laurie Strode as part of the "Class of 78", meaning she graduated in 1978. However in the original film, Laurie was in school during the fall of 1978. Although it's not mentioned what grade she was in, she would've been the Class of either 79, 80, or 81.
My name's not Keri Tate.
Will Brennan: Oooh, what is it?
Laurie Strode: Laurie Strode.
Will Brennan: Strode?
Scream 2 is playing in the background in one of the scenes. However, the original Scream had the first Halloween playing in one of its scenes, thus effectively negating the universe the Halloween movies take place in.
After the final credits have ended, the words "In Memory of Donald Pleasance" appear before the Dimension Films logo and the movie is finished.
On October 26, 2003 an alternate version was shown on FX with these additions:
$16,187,724 (USA) (9 August 1998)
