Halloween: Resurrection

Revealing mistake: When Michael is hung from the window, an upwards shot reveals the top of the sound stage the Myers house was built in (top right corner). (01:13:42)

Other mistake: After Michael kills Laurie at the beginning, he hands the knife to the inmate with the clown mask. The next kill is the cameraman for which he uses the tripod ends. A few scenes later they show Michael standing holding a knife with fresh blood on it. He hasn't killed anybody with this knife yet so where did the blood come from?

Plot hole: When the first security guard, who stayed back to get something to eat, hears something in the laundry room, he walks over to the washing machine where he finds the head of the other security guard inside. He turns around screaming and trips over the security guard's body on the ground with no head. Wouldn't he notice the dead body on the ground when he first entered the room?

32

Continuity mistake: When at his house, the first crew member Michael kicks with a camera. He puts that camera on the ground, tripod closed and laying down. When the people first walk into the house they switch to a camera view that's up the stairs and you can see that the camera that was laying on the floor is now propped up against the wall.

13

Continuity mistake: Freddie is stabbed rather harshly on the shoulder but there is no blood anywhere on his shirt or anywhere near his wound.

12

Audio problem: When Myles is at the party in the office checking out the web broadcast, a guy and a girl bust in and intend to have sex there. What we hear the guy say doesn't match up with his mouth movements.

12

Factual error: The bandages for Freddie's stab wounds are on top of his shirt. If he were really stabbed severely three times on the shoulder, the paramedics would have at least make him take off his shirt to better dress the wound. Freddie didn't even take off his jacket!

11

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning, when Michael kills the first security guard in the basement, just before he dispatches the second one, you can see a crew member's arm reflected in a window hitting the light shade to keep it swinging.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Sara is looking through the bedroom closet the mannequin with the mask on falls on her and the head falls off but when Rudy comes in and lifts the mannequin back up the head is attached onto it. (00:44:50)

7

Continuity mistake: At the party, when someone screams out to turn the volume down, right behind the kid that plays Decker is a blonde haired boy with a red smoking jacket. It then cuts back to inside the Myers' house for a few minutes. When it cuts back to the party that same blonde haired boy just walks in as if he wasn't in there before, asking what they are watching.

7

Plot hole: The nurse mentions that Laurie Strode is a potential suicide risk. With that risk, added to her mentioned escape attempts and being found on a rooftop, as well as being the prime target of a serial killer still on the loose, shouldn't she be under 24 hour protective watch?

5

Plot hole: When Bill is being murdered he is screaming yet no one is able to hear him. The house is quite small and his screams would most definitely be in earshot.

Plot hole: In the flashbacks to Michael's escape in H20, why did they send one lonely paramedic in to get him? Not only that, Michael was able to promptly switch outfits with him, place him in his spot, and exit the scene before anyone else entered the room. In H20, the place was swarming with police and paramedics.

4

Continuity mistake: When it flashes back to how Michael Myers survived the end of H20, we see the paramedic that he subdues and switches places with. That paramedic had a bit of a stomach on him, yet the figure of Michael Myers throughout the rest of H20 after the switch remains the same as the real Myers. [A side note: Halloween H20 WAS intended to be the absolute final film, but popular demand forced a return and obviously they needed a scapegoat excuse to bring Myers back. Still...]

Audio problem: When Donna runs into Michael in the sewer, she screams, but we hear the words, "Oh, shit."

2

Audio problem: Take note of when Michael Myers brandishes his knife. Any time the knife is shown, an audible, metallic 'SHHHING!' is heard, as though the weapon is being pulled out of a sheath or scabbard. Even when the knife is being held still, the sound effect is still heard. It gets to the point of being almost comical.

2

Continuity mistake: When Donna puts her shirt on after messing with Jim, she doesn't put her bra on. After Michael kills her, her bra is back on.

3

Visible crew/equipment: When you see Freddy's black Voyager parked outside, a green Jeep passes by the car. If you look carefully at the reflection there is a large,high ceiling of a warehouse stage set. (00:27:25)

1

Revealing mistake: When Jen is decapitated, its blatantly obvious its a fake body.

3

Continuity mistake: In the first Halloween the kitchen of the Myers house is to the right of the back of the house, but in this one it's to the left.

Jim Morgan: Say something smart.
Donna Chang: Existence precedes essence.
Jim Morgan: God, you're sexy.

More trivia for Halloween: Resurrection

Question: It was revealed that the person who Laurie thought she killed wasn't Michael but somebody who Michael had subdued and placed his clothes and mask on. Why would Laurie be sent to an institution for this? She wasn't aware of the fact that she killed the wrong person until the mask was removed, and since the staff seem to know about her connection to Michael, wouldn't they consider letting her go since she was only trying to stop Michael's rampage?

Answer: At first impression, Laurie was catatonic not only from the shock of killing an innocent man, but also from a lifetime of being chased down by her murderous brother. She obviously knows from past experiences that nothing she does (including faking her own death) will stop Michael from finding her. It is later revealed she has been faking her mental issues (think when she has been hiding her regular meds in the raggedy Ann doll) and is committed only to stopping Michael, no matter what the cost. She may have also been trying to protect her son and the only way to do that is to allow herself to be institutionalized in order to lure Michael there.

Answer: It's not properly explained (nothing in this stupid movie is), but the implication is that she went a little crazy due to the guilt of killing an innocent man and was institutionalized.
