Halloween II

Stupidity: When Dr Loomis and Sheriff Bracket are chasing who they think to be Michael Myers, you can tell that it isn't him. Michael Myers is supposed to be 6'2 - Ben Tramer is maybe 5'4. If Michael was shot 6 times there would be blood on his overalls. And the mask that the kid is wearing has blonde hair, whereas the mask Michael wears is brown.

Suggested correction: Remember that Loomis has only seen Michael Myers in his mask once, for a few seconds, in darkness. Loomis' reaction is still pretty hysterical and/or stupid, but not necessarily for that reason.

Suggested correction: Michael in the original was 5'10", and in Halloween II the actor playing him was 5'9." Ben Tramer was a high schooler and could have easily been 5'10." Loomis was also extremely paranoid and almost hysterical at finding Michael, and could have not noticed the hair or non-bloody coveralls in his frantic search for Michael.

Stupidity: It seems stupid of Mrs Strode to tell her young adopted daughter Laurie that she wasn't her mother much less seemingly taking her to visit her older brother Michael.

Stupidity: The sheriff kneels down to examine Michael's 'body' as the doctor yells at him to get away, and the sheriff tells him Michael stopped breathing. Michael suddenly grabs the sheriff and throws him onto the ground and raises the scalpel to kill him. The doctor aims his gun at Michael to shoot him but doesn't, when he had the opportunity before the sheriff is killed.

Stupidity: Since Nurse Chambers knew about Myers and Laurie's connection before Loomis, it's dumb she didn't tell him before they left Haddonfield.

Continuity mistake: When Michael enters the Elrods' home and steals the knife, as he picks up the knife from where Mrs. Elrod had left it, there are several drops of blood that fall onto the lunchmeat, presumably from Michael's injuries from having been shot. A few seconds later when Mrs. Elrod walks back over to the lunchmeat and reaches for the knife and sees the blood, the droplet patterns are different.

Question: How can Michael recognize Laurie as his younger sister since he wouldn't have seen her since she was only two years old?

Answer: There is a scene where Laurie dreams about meeting Michael as a young teen. It's unknown whether this is an actual memory of real events, but since nothing indicates otherwise, we could assume the he saw her at an older age when she looked closer to her 17-year-old self.
