Halloween II

Factual error: At the end of the film where the blinded Michael is swinging his scalpel aimlessly, it makes loud "swooshing" sounds. This is pure fantasy. I have personally mimicked what Michael did using similar small scalpels and even larger knives without almost no sound when swinging them.

Factual error: The films happenings are supposed to take place on Halloween of 1978, but the ambulance has rectangular headlights, which were not introduced on full-size Ford vans until the 1980 model year.

Factual error: The story is supposed to take place on Halloween 1978, but some of the clothing and hairstyles have noticeable characteristics associated with the early 1980's; particularly those of Alice, Karen, and Darcy.

Factual error: When Michael corners Laurie in the elevator, the door shuts just in time and slams on his hand and just keeps closing, and Michael pulls away. Elevators have rubber guards that would cause the door to open again if someone's hand would get caught in the closing.

Factual error: The film takes place in Illinois on Halloween, October 31st, but you'd never know it by looking at the colors of the trees, they all have green leaves and there is almost no sign of Fall or ground leaves.

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.

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'.
