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?
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
Plot hole: What exactly was Laurie Strode's plan in the teaser, when she strung Michael up over the edge of the roof. From the way she starts cutting the rope it looks like she plans to drop him, but she's seen him survive a 2-storey fall before, in the original Halloween, not to mention multiple stab wounds in H20. A fall off the roof into bushes would barely phase Michael.
Other mistake: This is a timing mistake. In the beginning of the movie, when Michael kills the first security guard, he stuffs his head in the washer. The second security guard was in the room within 30 seconds. There is no way that Michael had time to cut this guys head off, stuff it in the washing machine, turn it on, and hide before the second guard got there.
Continuity mistake: In the scene when Rudy has the last last knife stabbed through him about fifteen centimeters of the blade go through the other side of the door. About fifteen seconds later from the fitted camera view you see Michael open the door and Rudy has a large, thick padding on his back. There is no way the knife could have gone that far through the other side of the door if the padding would have been that thick.
Continuity mistake: When Nora is making her coffee from the machine you can see most of the computer screens. If you look at the one with Charlie on it you can see him walk backwards with the tripod leg pointing at him, but in the next shot,when you see the screen close up, he is kneeling down, Michael Myers catches his attention and then he stands up.
Plot hole: At the end of the movie, the fire department and paramedics arrive just after the house has been set on fire. Yet, as the focus shifts to the outside view, the house has burned all the way down (which takes a couple of hours) and the paramedics STILL have not gotten around to sending Sara and Freddy away for questioning or hospital or the like.
Continuity mistake: At the start of the film after the crazy guy is pushed out of the room Sara says, 'I just need to send a quick e-mail.', and when you see her type it in there is a really long word or sentence on the screen but in the next shot close up there is just the word 'Deckard'.
Visible crew/equipment: When Michael Myers enters Harold's room at the institution and hands over the knife Harold says, "Michael Myers". If you look carefully on the wall on his right you can see shadows of camera equipment and wiring and also when he is walking past the window you can see a reflection of a camera.
Continuity mistake: Halfway through the film, we see Michael Myers walk into a room immediately followed by another Myers. Both are dressed nearly identically in a blue jumpsuit. But as soon as the first one turns around and we learn it's actually Freddie, the shot changes to Michael and back to him and he's wearing his jean jacket, seen in the rest of the movie.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, Deckard is communicating to Sara's handheld device where Michael Myers is in the house. When Deckard tells Sara to "GO NOW!", the text has changed from small digital text to large bold font and the screen has changed from green to white, similar to a large PC monitor.
Continuity mistake: Freddie has all the cameras cut when they find out he's a fake Michael Myers. When the kids complain to Deckard about it suddenly going offline, they tell him to bring it back. Deckard types at a fast rate, yet not only is there no dialogue box for text to be typed in, the screen remains the same.
Continuity mistake: When you see Freddy being interviewed you see Nora watching him on the TV, the camera is at a reverse angle and you see that her hand is somewhere round her face and her head tilts but in the very next shot,she doesn't have her hand near her face and also her head is completely still.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after the fake skeleton breaks through the wall Donna puts her mahogany coloured top back on. In a few seconds she kneels down to pick up her camera equipment from the floor without anything with her, but seconds later, when she grabs her camera gear, she has the small camera attached to her ear.
Visible crew/equipment: When you see the two women at the mental institution, the camera angle is at their backs, the woman on the left is curious about Michael Myers. Before the other says that she decapitated a man, you see down the end of the hallway a man kneeling down, possibly a crew member. In the next shots of the hallway, he is gone.
Continuity mistake: We see countless times that there is a wooded area behind the Myers home (especially after the house burns down, it is seen more clearly). But in the other films, the Myers home is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Behind his house would be the back of another house.
Plot hole: When Busta Rhymes says "Cut the camera. Cut the camera" when he is attacked by the kids. Who is turning all of the cameras off at once? Prior to that scene, he runs into the real Michael Myers and has him go into the garage with Nora to "help her ass out." If he did, then I doubt she would be able to turn it off and on.
Continuity mistake: Jen's head lands at the bottom of the stairs. Later on in different scenes of the movie, it's obviously not there anymore because of all the running around downstairs and upstairs. Yet it's conveniently where it landed the first time because we see it on the monitor in the garage.
Continuity mistake: When Michael pins Rudy to the door, he uses the two knives that Rudy had in each hand. One of the knives goes clear through the door and out the other side. Michael then gets another knife from the drawer and it too goes through the other side, but the first knife that went through is now gone.
Plot hole: After Freddy kicks Michael Myers out of the window he is caught up on the camera cord outside of Judith Myers' room, which is facing the front of the house. However, when Freddy and Sara leave her room they come from the opposite side to where her bedroom is, which is the side of the house.
Continuity mistake: When Freddy pours the wine into the glasses with Nora, the screen behind him has a lantern held by Bill. Next, when Michael Myers breaks through the mirror Bill is struggling in agony, and in the next shot when you see the screen behind Freddy, the motions are the same as it was twenty seconds ago.
Continuity mistake: When Jen and Bill are walking up the stairs on their way to Judith Myers' room, Jen accidentally trips and breaks a step halfway up the stairs. After she says, 'Hands off,Bud,' she walks away from him about two steps, but in the next shot she is only three steps away from the top.
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.
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: In one of the last scenes where Sara Moyer has a blanket around her shoulders. She has her palm pilot in her hand and she has just received a message from Berman saying that he can see her on the news. The very next second after reading that entry you can here the palm pilot shut so you know she a has closed it. Then the very next shot you can actually see her shut the palm pilot.
