Halloween

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Michael is carrying Annie's body into the house her head is on the left side of his body. After they show Tommy looking out the window they cut back to Michael and suddenly Annie's head is on the right side of his body.

Revealing mistake: Even though the story is set in Haddonfield IL, all of the cars have California license plates.

Visible crew/equipment: There is a scene where Michael Myers is hiding behind a hedge bush and Laurie and her friend go to investigate. Laurie turns around and talks and you see cigarette smoke go by the camera (John Carpenter admitted on the commentary track that he was smoking a little too close to the camera that day).

Continuity mistake: When Laurie is walking home the sidewalk instantly goes from wet to dry.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before Laurie stabs Michael with the knitting needle you can see that one of the window shutters is open and that the wind is ruffling the curtain. When the camera gets closer and the curtain is out of the way you can see the huge fan in the studio being used to simulate the wind outside.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie is beating on the door to Tommy's house and telling him to open it, the door knob is on the right side of the door. When it shows Tommy opening it from the inside, the door knob is also on the right side (it should be on the left).

Continuity mistake: In the closing credits, Michael Myers is said to be 23 years of age, he was actually 21.

Continuity mistake: When Annie takes Lindsey round to watch TV with Tommy, they leave the TV in their house on. But when Annie comes back looking for her car keys, the TV is off.

THGhost

Factual error: When Dr. Loomis is at the pay phone talking to someone at the mental institution, the background of the scene has mountains, which in fact Illinois has hardly any mountains, and the few it does have are nowhere near there.

Plot hole: We see Michael wearing the mask throughout the day, from morning at the Myers House, to mid-day outside Laurie's school, to afternoon when Tommy is leaving school, yet when Laurie and Annie see the sheriff in front of the hardware store on the way to their babysitting jobs (presumably in late afternoon or early evening), the store's alarm is still ringing and the sheriff mentions that one of the items stolen was a Halloween mask.

Continuity mistake: When Michael is at Tommy's school, there are cars parked across the street. When he gets in the car to leave, they are gone.

Continuity mistake: The young girl walks up to the Myers house near the start. From the view in the house she reaches the door. Camera changes and she's halfway up the steps.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, Laurie runs into Tommy while she is walking to school, meaning that they live near each other; however, later on in the movie, when Laurie has to babysit Tommy, Annie has to drive her to Tommy's house, which is located on the other side of town.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie is waiting for Annie to pick her up, she is waiting with a pumpkin and it's still very light out. But when they arrive at the houses where they babysit, which wouldn't take ages to travel to, it's dark outside.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie, Annie, and Lynda are walking home from school, the sidewalks are wet. When Laurie is by herself, they are dry.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene involving Michael Myers breaking the closet in order to get to Laurie, then why near the end of the film does it show you the closet in tip-top condition?

Plot hole: There's no way Annie could have locked herself in the laundry room considering the lock is on the outside of the door.

Other mistake: When Annie goes to get her car keys, notice she goes through the back yard and goes to the front of the house as if the garage is in the back yard, when we see the garage on the right side of the house.

Revealing mistake: When Michael stabs Judith, he uses a rather large butcher knife. Yet on her chest there's no "wounds." It just looks like smeared stage blood. He stabs her deeply as well. We see this when Michael goes outside to his parents. Blood is halfway up the knife.

Continuity mistake: When Michael stabs Laurie in her arm the wound doesn't bleed at all, and there's no blood on the knife either. Then when she kneels down to talk to the kids, and in every scene after that, there's a streak of blood.
