Halloween II

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: Given Laurie Strode survived an attack by a still on the loose maniac she's not guarded at the hospital?

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: 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: 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.

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.

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.

Answer: From what I have read: yes.
