Revealing mistake: When Tommy is carrying the pumpkin from school, you can see it has a cut in it to make it crack open when he falls down.

Revealing mistake: When Laurie is kneeling down talking to Tommy and Lindsey, you get a good view of her arm where Michael stabbed her. You can plainly see it's just a streak of stage blood with no cut at all.

Revealing mistake: In the scene outside of Smith's Grove mental institution, where Michael jumps on top of the station wagon, he attacks the nurse, but she manages to wrangle free. A few moments later, he smashes the passenger side window. If you look closely, the actor's arm has a wrench taped to it in order to effectively break the glass injury free.

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.

Revealing mistake: During the scene when Michael steals the station wagon from Dr. Loomis and the nurse, when she is lying across the seat you can see the passenger window is clean and very much transparent. However in the very next scene where Michael goes to smack his hand on the window, it is now foggy - a side effect of the glass alternative used for the effect.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Dr. Sam Loomis is calling from a pay phone warning of Michael Myers return to Haddonfield, a Southern Pacific freight train passes by blowing its horn (you can't see the train in the standard version). While SP trains are quite common in Southern California where the film was made, they don't actually travel through any part of Illinois.

Revealing mistake: When Michael cuts Annie's throat, notice there's no visible cut or blood at all. When your throat is cut blood is going to pour out.
