Halloween II

Continuity mistake: After getting out of the car, Laurie is on the ground beside Jimmy's car outside the hospital when she sees the Marshall's car pull up. When Loomis tells the Marshall he ought to handcuff him to the wheel, if you look, Jimmy's car is still visible in the distance, but Laurie is not in that shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the boys ask Mr. Hunt about Ben Tramer, Mr. Hunt says that "it's just a little past 11." Following this up in the next scene Bud lures Karen into the room to kiss her and wish her Happy Halloween. During this scene, as Bud reaches up to kiss Karen, his watch is clearly visible and shows the time as 1:00.

Continuity mistake: The flashing lights on the front of Bud and Jimmy's ambulance change places as they pull into the hospital driveway. They go from either the side of the hood to the front of the bumper.

Continuity mistake: When Michael falls off the balcony, he falls into some green grass and a garden is next to him. Yet in the original "Halloween", Michael falls onto the ground with barely any grass around him, just a dirt patch and no garden in sight. (This is explained because they reshot the ending to "Halloween" 1.).

Continuity mistake: Michael comes into Laurie's room and stabs at her bed, only to find pillows had been placed there. He then walks out and leaves the door open. When Jill returns from checking on a patient, the door is now closed and she opens it.

Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Loomis has just shot Michael. In first film, Loomis looks over the balcony and see that he is gone, but now he goes out and discovers that he is gone.

James Warrender

Continuity mistake: When Michael walks into the old couple's house, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is showing on the television. At that point, the film is just beginning, with Barbara and Johnny first pulling up to the cemetery. Much later in the film, the security guard is also watching NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD on television, and it's the scene where the cemetery zombie is attacking Barbara in her car. This is no more than ten minutes later in NOTLD, yet it's way more than ten minutes later in the evening of HALLOWEEN II.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie runs away from Michael Myers in the boiler room, she climbs a window and falls into a storage room. Her hospital gown gets flipped as she falls, exposing her underwear. The close-up shows her falling again, this time without the upskirt shot.

Continuity mistake: Nurse Jill turns around before Michael Myers stabs her. After she's stabbed, she's already facing forward and her head doesn't snap to face the camera.

Continuity mistake: After Nurse Karen is drowned by Michael Myers, he drops her backward. The close-up shows however that she falls forward.

Continuity mistake: The front door on the Doyles' house is different from the one seen in Halloween. You can see this when Dr. Loomis leaves the house in the beginning of the movie.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy finds Nurse Alves dead on a stretcher and slips over in her blood pool, he hits the floor and there is a lot of blood on his face (especially near his mouth). A second later however, in an overhead shot, his face is clean. (01:03:25)

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: After Laurie wanders into a hospital room and unsuccessfully tries to use the telephone there are a series of shots cutting back and forth between the room and Laurie looking out into the hallway. In the shots from inside the room the telephone shifts position at one point. (00:59:01)

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: When Michael is stalking the hospital corridors there is a scene when he hides in the baby unit and is observing the Head Nurse berate Nurse Karen for being late again. The scene switches back and forth between a close up of the two nurses talking to a shot from Michael's perspective of them from inside the baby unit. In the close up the Head Nurse's body is facing Karen, from Michael's perspective her body is facing towards him on the other side of the nurse station. (00:30:20)

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: After the guy in the hospital slips in the blood puddle he has some blood on his face and mouth that disappear between shots.

Continuity mistake: After the hospital guard takes a look outside he checks the trash container which has inside a box with a big bloodstain which disappears in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: When the guard is checking the warehouse at the hospital he holds the flashlight differently between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Michael's shown falling off the Wallace balcony in the opening scene it's on the front of the house not the back. Clearly this is a different house. (00:02:31)

Rob245

Continuity mistake: When Michael enters the Elrods' home and steals the knife, as he picks up the knife from where Mrs. Elrod had left it, there are several drops of blood that fall onto the lunchmeat, presumably from Michael's injuries from having been shot. A few seconds later when Mrs. Elrod walks back over to the lunchmeat and reaches for the knife and sees the blood, the droplet patterns are different.

Question: How can Michael recognize Laurie as his younger sister since he wouldn't have seen her since she was only two years old?

Answer: There is a scene where Laurie dreams about meeting Michael as a young teen. It's unknown whether this is an actual memory of real events, but since nothing indicates otherwise, we could assume the he saw her at an older age when she looked closer to her 17-year-old self.
