Halloween II

Visible crew/equipment: When Dr Loomis, Marion and the marshal arrive at the hospital, Loomis tells the marshal that he thinks he'll "need him in there" and you can see the camera reflected in the marshal's rear view mirror. (01:14:28)

Jack Vaughan

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

Visible crew/equipment: When the kid with the boom box on his shoulder walks into Michael you can see the cameras shadow pass over Michael as it pulls back to reveal him. (00:24:42)

Jack Vaughan

Visible crew/equipment: When the two paramedics are putting Laurie into the ambulance you can see the shadow of the camera cast on the stretcher as it passes across the driveway. (00:12:40)

Jack Vaughan

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.

Audio problem: When Loomis shoots Michael in the opening here his gun sounds different from the previous movie.

Rob245

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

Other mistake: When Michael dips the nurse's head into the scalding water, her face starts to burn and her skin starts to peel. But, nothing happens to his hand that is also going in the water while holding her hair. (00:52:15)

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.

Suggested correction: The door was already open and then they closed it behind them.

Other mistake: Myers gets shot 6 times in the chest and body but has no blood or bullet holes.

oswal13

Mrs. Alves: Men! Can't live with them, can't live without them.

More quotes from Halloween II

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'.

More trivia for Halloween II

Question: Why aren't there any other patients/staff?

Answer: I have read that, in early drafts of the script, the hospital was a health clinic, not a standard hospital. This would possibly explain why there are only a small number of patients, though it doesn't explain why there is a maternity ward, or why the mother brings her son there for emergency treatment.

Answer: One could argue that Haddonfield is a small town, and perhaps there just aren't that many doctors, nor that many patients in the hospital at any given time. It really just depends. Also, I've had to go to the ER a number of times in my life. Most of the time, it's busy, but there has been a few times where it has been pretty much completely dead and empty, not too dissimilar from what you see in this movie. So it could possibly just be a slow night.

Answer: Apparently there were quite a few patients at HMH. If you remember the scene where Karen was putting pills into individual cups just before the room buzzer goes off, in which she finds Bud under the sheet, there are many of those cups. Also we know for certain there was a patient named Ms. Carr who was supposed to receive attention at 9:30 the next morning, told to Karen by Ms. Alves, while Michael was standing in the rear of the nursery area watching them. And of course there were all the newborn babies, leading me to believe there were a few new mothers in the hospital as well.
