Corrected entry: When Loomis goes to the gas station, he finds the mechanic and the waitress dead. Obviously Michael killed everyone who worked there. So whose cigarette was still burning in the ashtray when Loomis was confronting Michael?

Correction: It most likely it belonged to the waitress, but there are other possibilities. Michael killed two people there that we see, both workers, and one of them was the mechanic while working in the garage. If he only killed those two, it therefore belongs to the waitress. We don't know how much time passed between her murder and Dr. Loomis arriving, so the cigarette may not be completely burned yet. The waitress may have been smoking on a break while waiting for someone to come in. At that point in the 1980's it was common to smoke in the workplace and public places, and she would have had to be available quickly if a customer came in. In addition, Loomis says that he saw only saw two bodies there, but there may have been more he didn't see. For example, when we first saw the mechanic when Michael arrived, he called out someone's name and asked him to hand him something. It was also a diner, so there may have been a cook that he didn't see. It's also possible that there may have been a customer waiting for their car to be repaired (the mechanic was working on a vehicle), but they might have been killed in the bathroom or another location and Loomis didn't see them. So, in essence, it could have been anyone's cigarette.

Corrected entry: At the end of Halloween 2 (1981) Michael Myers is shot in both eyes and becomes blind. In Halloween 4 (1988) The Return of Michael Myers he can still see.

Correction: As we have seen throughout the series, Michael has the supernatural ability to heal. His blinding in Halloween 2 was only temporary. And lets not forget that he was also burnt to a crisp in that film, but shows little sign of that here.

Corrected entry: At the very beginning of Halloween 4 when Michael is on the stretcher, several times we see his arm and hand and it appears completely normal. This seems near impossible (even after 10 years, of which no time and/or any surgeries could ever repair) given that Michael was not only burned but completely incinerated in fire at the end of Halloween 2.

Correction: Michael Myers has been shown to have super natural type powers during this entire series.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie when the orderly is escorting the two doctors up to take Michael away, he talks to them about the happenings of ten years earlier, and tells them that Michael's doctor (Loomis) even shot him 6 times. That really is inaccurate, considering at the end of Halloween 2 right after Michael walks right through the glass doors at the hospital, Loomis fires off another 5 rounds at Michael, hitting him at least 4 more times.

Correction: Maybe the orderly just didn't know. Character mistake.

Corrected entry: At the very end of the film when Meeker and the 4-5 other state troopers are gunning down Michael, it is very clear that half the shots or more fired by the troopers aren't even hitting Michael, in fact they are WAY OFF. Now we must take into consideration that this is a movie, plus, shots will miss when that many are fired, but in reality, Michael wasn't that far away, and real state troopers are trained to have near pin-point accuracy for situations like this, and therefor should have nailed about 98% of their shots.

Correction: My brother in law is in the RCMP, and has extensive firearm training. Even with all the training, there is a huge difference between shooting a paper target, and shooting a human being. The news often has reports of shootings where the police hit the person maybe 4 or 5 times, but there were over 40 0r 50 shots fired. My brother in law tells me a 98% accuracy rating is unheard of, most people in a stressful situation don't even hit a non moving paper target that often.

Corrected entry: When Jamie is in the store, she finds a red and white striped clown costume. It shows her looking in the mirror and she sees a young Michael Myers in the same style costume, but in the original Halloween, Michael's clown costume had more colours on it.

Correction: It doesn't necessarily have to be a reflection of Michael's costume. I think the intent was to show the link between the two. She changes to him, but none of the other surroundings change. The link is helped by the fact that she willingly chose the clown suit. But it doesn't have to be the same one.

Corrected entry: During the scene when Loomis and the others arrive at the Sheriff's home, when Loomis opens the car door, you can see the reflection of a stepladder in the car window, obviously used by the film crew.

Correction: We don't know it's obviously from the film crew. I've got a stepladder that's been standing outside my shop for at least six months, and I haven't used it all this time. Sometimes things are just left where they are if they're not required.

Corrected entry: Myers got a coat hanger completely rammed into his left eye in the first movie and then shot in both eyes in the second movie, how is he able to see in this movie? He was blown up after that and his face burned horribly, he can't just grow new eyes in a burned skull while in a "10 year" coma. The doctors had no reason to implant eyes, even if they could do it back then, how can he see anything?

Correction: Myers is very well-known to regenerate even from injuries like that. Obviously, it didn't make him go blind but nothing is saying that his vision is as good as it was before he got those injuries.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jamie is in the closet, looking at a photo of her mother (Jamie Lee Curtis). The photo looks exactly like the scene where Laurie is sitting waiting for Annie on the ledge in the ORIGINAL Halloween.

Correction: This is a reference to the first film (or even a tribute), not a mistake.

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Dr. Loomis and Sheriff Meeker are scared by the Halloween pranksters with Myers masks on, as soon as they pull out and Meeker starts talking on the radio, there is a car parked behind them. Then the camera pulls out and shows Michael Myers standing behind them, notice the car on the left is gone.

Correction: The car in this scene is not gone, in fact it's still in the same place. In this scene they shoot from both sides of the street. As Meeker pulls away, he heads in the opposite direction to which Myers faces 2 seconds later. The car never moves. (Note the steps at the sidewalk.)

Corrected entry: How can Jamie have nightmares about her uncle if she never met him, for that matter never seen him in his Halloween outfit?

Correction: This is not a plot hole. In fact, this idea is integral to the plot of this overlooked horror movie. Jaime and Michael Myers are have a psychic link. This is how he finds her. This is how he is ever even aware of her.

Corrected entry: Dr. Loomis told the sheriff that he has seen 6 bodies on his way to Haddonfield. In actuality, there were only 5. The ambulance had 4 people INCLUDING Michael, so only 3 bodies there. In the gas station, there are only two. So where is the 6th body?

Correction: Not true. There are two paramedics driving in the front of the ambulance and two doctors in the back with Meyers. They, plus the two killed in the gas station equals six.
