Halloween II

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: 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: 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: At the end of part one, Laurie's stab wound was just a streak of blood and none on her shirt at all. When they bring her out to the ambulance, there's now a lot of blood on her shirt and streaks of blood on her arm. (00:13:20)

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: When Laurie leaves the hospital, she exits out of the hospital doors. Somehow the doors stay open. Later on in the far away shot, the doors are closed, then they are open again in the next shot.

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.

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

Trivia: Jimmy didn't die even though it never shows him after he faints on the steering wheel in the car with Lori. He simply passed out. In some cuts it shows him alive in the ambulance at the end, but for some reason in the theatrical version, they left it out for us to 'wonder'.
