Trivia

Betsy Rue who plays Jazlean was actually given the role during a reshoot as a favor to Rob Zombie to Rue. Originally for Halloween (2007) Betsy was given the role of Lynda but had to drop out of the film due to scheduling. Only then did Kristina ... ...


Quotes

Sheriff Lee Brackett: Man was meant to eat meat. We, all of us, have a little bit caveman in us.


Goofs

(at around 42 mins) During Loomis's interview in front of the dilapidated Myer's house it is obviously not the same house used in the previous film.


Crazy Credits

[at the beginning before the opening credits] WHITE HORSE - Linked to instinct, purity and the drive of the physical body to release powerful and emotional forces, like rage with ensuing chaos and destruction. --excerpt from the Subconscious Psychosis of Dreams.


Alternate Versions

The Director's Cut runs 14 minutes longer (119 minutes). Among the changes:

  • The opening scene with Laurie walking and Loomis being placed into the ambulance is longer.
  • The hospital dream scene has an extra sequence of Laurie attempting to cross over a pile of bodies.
  • An on screen title that said "One Year Later" in the Theatrical Cut now says "Two Years Later."
  • During the breakfast scene, Laurie and Annie now argue about going to the psychiatrist.
  • More dialogue with Laurie and the psychiatrist. Laurie looks at a framed inkblot on a wall and says that it looks like a white horse.
  • Loomis' press conference is expanded. Loomis discusses Michael's Oedipal complex, as well as the idea that Michael perhaps saw Loomis as a father figure.
  • Added sequence where Laurie runs a bath and begins to freak out.
  • Laurie stopping to play with a pig on her way to work is removed. She instead goes to the psychiatrist and tells her about playing with the pig (we see a few seconds of it, now in flashback), and how it triggered a nervous breakdown of sorts. When the shrink denies her more pills, Laurie freaks out and swears.
  • The scene where Annie finds Laurie drinking a beer in her room has been expanded: They have another fight.
  • A non-masked Michael (along with Young Michael and his mother) angrily looks at a billboard that advertises Loomis' book.
  • When Laurie and Maya come home from the party, there is a short added sequence of them making tea in the kitchen prior to going upstairs. There's also an added shot of Michael apparently walking out of the house.
  • Brackett's reaction to finding Annie's body is longer, containing video flashbacks of real-life actress Danielle Harris as a child.
  • The ending is significantly different: After Loomis enters the cabin, Michael throws him through a wall, and the two of them wind up outside. Michael then removes his mask, yells "DIE!", and stabs Loomis. The cops then open fire and kill Michael. Laurie then comes out, takes Michael's knife, and approaches Loomis with it, implying that she may stab him. The cops then open fire on her and seemingly kill her. We then fade to the same hospital footage seen at the end of the theatrical cut as a cover of "Love Hurts" plays on the soundtrack.
