Continuity mistake: When Dr. Loomis is thrown through the window by Michael Myers in the school notice that Myers' hair has strangely turned white. The next shot Myers' hair has gone back to being brown. This is more evident in the widescreen version.

Plot hole: At the end of Halloween 2 Michael is completely engulfed in fire for several minutes. Even if somehow he was to survive he would be covered in scars. When we see him at the beginning of part 4 he has a few small scars on his arms. Same with Loomis, he has a few small scars on his arms and and one on his cheek despite being in a gigantic explosion and fire. Obviously this was done so they could bring the 2 characters back but it still makes no logical sense.

Continuity mistake: When Loomis and the sheriff are surrounded by the teens dressed like Michael Myers, Sheriff Meeker say's "If I catch you it's a weekend in jail" indicating that it's a Friday. Halloween was actually on a Monday in 1988.

New this month Suggested correction: Not necessarily. He was dealing with teens and they go to school throughout the week. He has the ability to choose when to put them in jail over the weekend so they could go to classes, not to mention that losing out on a weekend would be very upsetting to a teen. It kind of works like Saturday detention. Barring that, it could simply be an empty threat to put some fear into them. He is the sheriff, so he could make any threat he wanted to to get them to behave.

Plot hole: Near the end of the movie, Jamie and Rachel are being taken down the highway to safety by the vigilantes when Michael climbs into the back of the truck from being underneath it. Michael then struggles, stabs, and violently throws two of the vigilantes from the truck, and the third vigilante, standing only inches from the other two and still holding guard in the back of the truck, appears to see or hear none of the commotion. Impossible, even for horror films.

Audio problem: When the head of the Federal Sanitarium gives over control of Michael to the Doctors from Smith's Grove, he says, "I can safely say that Michael Myers is in your hands." If you watch his lips, you can see that the sound of the words and his lip movement is way out of sync.

Plot hole: When the deputy arrives at the sheriff's house, Michael gets out and leaves the door open. The deputy comes out to the car and sees it open. And he thinks nothing of it, despite knowing he didn't open it. Logic would say, "Well someone else opened it."

Continuity mistake: Rachel dumps a cup of coffee on Sheriff Meeker's daughter's white T-shirt in the kitchen yet there's no sign of a stain. It's not even wet.

Plot hole: At the end of Halloween II Dr Loomis blows up the room. Since he was inside the room when it blew up in flames, how did it not kill him? And that bad of a fire only scarred one side of his face and one arm and hand?

Audio problem: Michael tears Rachel's sweater. The problem is it's not actually being torn, just sounding like it is.
