Continuity mistake: When Laurie is in the bottom of the closet hiding from Michael, you can see that a purple dress is in front of the rest of the clothes. However when she stands up to grab a hanger, a pink sweater is in front only to be behind the purple dress again when she sits back down.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie, Dr. Loomis comes up the stairs and starts to shoot Michael six times, sending him spiraling to the terrace. Take notice that Michael is about to go over the ledge of the terrace head first. In the next shot it shows him carefully backing off the ledge, while facing the house.

Continuity mistake: When the girls are walking home from school, Annie says that she is babysitting Lindsey Wallace and Laurie says she is babysitting Tommy Doyle. Laurie also claims that the Wallace's and the Doyle's house are 3 doors down, but when Annie drops Laurie off the houses are right across the street from each other.

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 Lynda is talking about how she forgot her books (at the beginning of their walk home) we see Michael Myers drive by, then speeds up and drives passed a driveway, then it cuts to Annie (Myers is still driving) and she says, "Hey Jerk. Speed Kills." We see Michael driving again and he is just a bit behind the drive-way he drove by before, he should be much farther ahead down the road at the speed he was going.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the doctor is talking to the new nurse for Michael in the car, the nurse is smoking a cigarette, but seconds later she has just lit one up. If she smokes one in 45 seconds then lights up another she is one worst chain smoker I've ever seen.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, Michael Myers' sister and her boyfriend "go upstairs." Michael then sneaks around the house, picks up a knife, and follows them. As he is about to go upstairs, his sister's boyfriend leaves. He then proceeds upstairs, and finds his sister nude. The actual time elapsed from proposition to his exit is about one minute and fifty seconds. Is this really enough time to go upstairs, get undressed, go about your business, and get dressed again?

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tommy Doyle looks out the window and sees the shape outside of the house across the street, the porch light is off and the jack o lantern is not lit. When he attempts to show Laurie, the next shot of the house shows that the porch light is on and the jack o lantern is lit.

Continuity mistake: When Bob and Linda arrive at the Wallace house, the exterior shots show the doorknob on the front door to be on the left side which would mean the door would swing inward to the right. However, when the shot cuts to the inside of the house as the door opens, the door swings inward to the left and the doorknob is now on the right side.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Laurie comes downstairs after taking a shower, she is at her front door singing to herself and she is looking out a window directly to the left of the door. Then there is a shot of the front of her house outside and you see her exit through the door that had the window next to it, but there is no longer a window there.

Continuity mistake: Michael stabs his sister repeatedly. The amount of blood shown on the knife when his parents come home is nowhere near enough for the number of times he stabbed her.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: Laurie's hair keeps changing throughout the movie. Her hair changes from wavy to straight while she babysits the kids. It is wavy again when she is going to Lindsey's house, and straight again when she is running back to Tommy's house. It stays straight until Michael starts to strangle her,where it becomes wavy again, having been straight in the previous shot. It all ends with straight hair. Surely all of this could not happen in a matter of hours.

Continuity mistake: The Myers' house is close enough to be walking distance from where Laurie lives. Yet at the end of the movie when Loomis notices the station wagon right down from the Myers' house, Loomis himself is a mere walking distance from the houses at which Laurie and Annie were babysitting. This is impossible since we were already told the street where the babysitting was taking place at was on other side of town from where Laurie lived.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when Michael is walking through the house, the clocks have different times on them. After he walks by the clock in the living room, it says 9:40. Seconds later, it strikes ten times.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where young Michael Myers sees the clown mask, the closest piece of clothing is a red shirt. When he puts it on, the closest piece of clothing is now a blue piece of clothing.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie is in the closet she stabs Michael with the hanger and leaves it up there. When they show all the locations at the end of the movie, in the shot of the living room look near the floor up close - you can see part of the hanger there, even though it was left upstairs.
