Halloween II

Other mistake: Watch the scene where the drunk Ben Tramer (wearing a similar Michael Myers mask) was hit by the speeding cop car and then pinned against the parked van before burning. Even taking out the equation of accidentally hitting Ben Tramer, what was the cop car doing speeding at that rate of speed, head on towards a parked van on a side street? Remember, we only hear screeching brakes after the car hits Tramer, and we never see the cop car swerve or any of that to miss hitting the van. Seems that even if Tramer hadn't been there, the cop car was sure to barge head on right into that van.

Other mistake: When Bud goes to check on how hot the water is, he rubs condensation off the gauges, but there wasn't anything on them to begin with.

Other mistake: When Jimmy finds Mrs Alves, he has to walk through the puddle of blood to get to her, but there are no footprints in the blood.

Other mistake: Jimmy the paramedic walks into the major surgery room to find Ms. Alves dead on the stretcher, the blood drained from her body. As he turns to leave he suddenly 'slips' on the pool of blood, falling back first and knocking himself unconscious. However the next shot reveals that the blood pool extends out to the doorway, so there's no way he could have crossed to the stretcher without slipping in the first place while entering the room.

Other mistake: After the two doctors and the sheriff pull up in the parking lot and then enter the hospital, Michael suddenly appears to Laurie, and she runs from him across the lot toward the same entrance, and suddenly the doors are locked. There is no way this would be, as the doctors and the sheriff would have had to stop and unlock the entrance before entering themselves, which they did not do.

Other mistake: At the hospital Laurie could not know that Myers was after her in there.

More quotes from Halloween II

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).

Question: Did Dick Warlock play Michael Myers in every scene he's in, even stunts? I was curious considering that Warlock was a stuntman and could have done the balcony fall and Michael burning scenes as well.

Gavin Jackson

Answer: From what I have read: yes.
