Yes there is.
is_null($x) is the same as $x === NULL (3 equal signs for strict
compare). But $x == NULL (2 equal signs for loose compare) is also
true if $x is 0, FALSE, empty string, or empty array. is_null() is false
for all those.

See the Appendix R "PHP Type Comparison Tables" of the PHP manual.
