Halloween II

Character mistake: The police claim the Myers house is at "45 Lampkin Lane." The address on the front porch clearly displays the number 709.

Character mistake: When Ben Tramer's friends report him missing to the police, they describe him as being 17 wearing a mask. This is what leads Loomis to make a positive ID... on Halloween.

Character mistake: The coroner determines that the burnt body of Ben Tramer (still unidentified) must be young, based solely on the absence of fillings in his teeth. Nobody considers for a moment that it could be a 30-something with good dental hygiene.

Revealing mistake: When Loomis shoots the marshal's window out, when he makes a u-turn you can see the tire marks on the road and dirt from previous takes.

Question: Why aren't there any other patients/staff?

Answer: I have read that, in early drafts of the script, the hospital was a health clinic, not a standard hospital. This would possibly explain why there are only a small number of patients, though it doesn't explain why there is a maternity ward, or why the mother brings her son there for emergency treatment.

Answer: One could argue that Haddonfield is a small town, and perhaps there just aren't that many doctors, nor that many patients in the hospital at any given time. It really just depends. Also, I've had to go to the ER a number of times in my life. Most of the time, it's busy, but there has been a few times where it has been pretty much completely dead and empty, not too dissimilar from what you see in this movie. So it could possibly just be a slow night.

Answer: Apparently there were quite a few patients at HMH. If you remember the scene where Karen was putting pills into individual cups just before the room buzzer goes off, in which she finds Bud under the sheet, there are many of those cups. Also we know for certain there was a patient named Ms. Carr who was supposed to receive attention at 9:30 the next morning, told to Karen by Ms. Alves, while Michael was standing in the rear of the nursery area watching them. And of course there were all the newborn babies, leading me to believe there were a few new mothers in the hospital as well.
