Halloween: Resurrection

Revealing mistake: When Deckard and his friend are in his bedroom on the computer you see a window beside him and outside you can see that there are painted clouds on a wall. (00:20:20)

Continuity mistake: When you see Donna, Jim and Rudy approaching the house to get ready you see that they are the only ones on that side of the house. You can tell because the wall is on their left side, but in the next shot you also see Bill on the same side. Where did he come from? (00:30:35)

Continuity mistake: After Willie trips over his beheaded partner his torch is in his left hand but after Michael Myers slices his throat and falls down his torch is in his right hand. (00:09:35)

Continuity mistake: When Deckard is at the party he goes up to the opening doors and tries to sneak in. Inside you can just see a lamp and a few bronze pots on the floor but when he enters the room you can see lots and lots of furniture and objects in the room. (00:36:15)

Continuity mistake: At the end when the garage is on fire Freddy shouts out, 'Happy F*****g Halloween', and when you see Michael caught up in the wires there are hardly any on his left side but when you see him from the camera there is a whole load of them surrounding him. (01:17:55)

Continuity mistake: When Michael Myers stabs the first two knives into Rudy and it goes through the door he gets the other one out of the drawer which is about three meters away but when he actually takes it out of the drawer and stabs it through him the drawer is like fifty centimeters away. (01:04:10)

Visible crew/equipment: Near the very end when Sara is walking through the tunnel in the house, the camera angle is in front of her. To the right, just for a split second, you can see someone's hand moving down very quickly. (01:12:50)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Sara tied a camera cord round Michael Myers's neck. Then, he throws Sara onto the bed and breaks the wooden panel beneath it. In the next second, you see it again completely undamaged. (01:09:50)

Continuity mistake: When there is a four-way split-screen while they enter the house, the top-left, the bottom-left, and the top-right don't match properly. (00:31:55)

Revealing mistake: Freddy's car is parked outside Michael Myers' house twice. First, when the trunk is open with the adapted machine and then he parks on the other side of the road after Charlie gets killed. (00:27:15 - 00:30:00)

Continuity mistake: After Sara sees the reflection of Michael Myers in the mirror, Jen is beside her. Jen turns her head to Donna when Donna says, 'The bogeyman?' In the next shot, Jen turns her head again. (00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: At the start just after Willy sees his partner's head in the washing machine, he gets his throat cut and there is blood all over the knife. Later on when Michael is approaching Laurie's room, his knife just has blood on the tip, only halfway up the blade. (00:09:35 - 00:10:20)

Continuity mistake: When Sara gets locked in the closet after the mannequin falls on her, we see Rudy's fist bust through the closet door, as if there were no other way it. In the next shot, the closet doors are wide open.

Factual error: The rat that Michael Myers supposedly ate that the redhead touched was able to move and squeak despite its lungs being torn out of its body.

Continuity mistake: Throughout this entire film, the interiors of the Myers' house are huge, compared to the small two story frame house exterior.

Audio problem: At the very end of the film Sara wants the fireman to open the bodybag with Michael Myers in it. When he does Freddy says,'Uh oh.', and as he says this the words do not match up with his mouth movements. (01:20:25)

Continuity mistake: When Sara escapes out of Michael Myers' bedroom window she looks over to the garage and when you see the crowd at the party and there are about thirty people but in a span of 30 seconds there are about twice as many in the room. (01:06:35 - 01:07:05)

Continuity mistake: When Freddy rendezvous with the gang, Jen's hair when she is applauding at the back is tied in two scruffy bunches sticking out. A couple of seconds later, she has only one bunch tied. From then on, it is tied in two bunches. (00:21:30)

Continuity mistake: When Michael Myers is holding the tripod to impale the crewman, the length of the sharpened end changes in length and shape numerous times. First, it's wider and smaller. Then it's slightly longer and narrower. And when it's finally through the victim, it's long enough to go through the neck and into the adjacent wall.

Continuity mistake: When you see Deckard is in his room with his friend the second time Deckard is relaxed,leant back on his chair with his cheek resting on his fist but in the very next shot he is typing on his computer. (00:25:25)

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.
