Halloween 4

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.

Audio problem: Michael tears Rachel's sweater. The problem is it's not actually being torn, just sounding like it is. (01:19:50)

Revealing mistake: When the guys are driving down the road, you can see Michael isn't under the truck. Yet 2 minutes later, he climbs in the bed. (01:16:25 - 01:18:10)

Earl: Martians could land on Ben's doorstep and all he'd do is spit once and get himself a shotgun.

More quotes from Halloween 4

Trivia: Series creator John Carpenter actually co-wrote an early draft of the script and even considered directing, but his ideas were dismissed by producers as being "too cerebral" for audiences, and he subsequently dropped out of the project. His script reportedly was more focused on the psychological effect Michael Myers had on the residents of Haddonfield (and possibly inspiring other murders), with Michael only appearing in visions, dreams and possibly as a "spirit."

Answer: It's tricky to say, as the films have contradictory explanations, and there are different "timelines/universes" in the series. But in the context of this film, Michael is for some reason compelled to kill his family for reasons unknown. Presumably he's just finishing the job he started by killing his sister Judith decades earlier. (They try to give a more concrete explanation in the movie "The Curse of Michael Myers," but it's... flimsy at best. And is contradicted by the following film).
