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.
Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) finds out that Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) is actually Michael Myers' sister. He goes to the hospital and stops Myers from killing Laurie having her escape and Loomis blows himself and Myers up in the room....or does he?
Trivia: Director Rick Rosenthal wanted to maintain the tactful and tasteful, slow-burn nature of the original film, and his original director's cut lacked blatant gore and nudity. However, writer/producer John Carpenter felt horror fans would not accept a film without extreme content due to the rise of various extremely graphic slasher-films in the wake of the original film. Thus, Carpenter went back and ghost-directed several new scenes to add in extra nudity and violence into the movie. (And if you watch the movie very closely, these reshoots can be pretty obvious, as they don't quite fit in with the rest of the film).
