Halloween 4

Continuity mistake: When the sheriff's daughter is killed she goes from wearing a T-shirt to a flannel shirt.

Plot hole: Toward the end, when Jamie and Rachel are being taken to safety by the vigilantes, Michael suddenly climbs over the back of the truck and slays all the guys one by one. There is no way he could have been 'hiding' under the truck as he was still deep inside the school when the truck sped out of the lot and down the road. Obviously added for dramatic effect at the end.

Continuity mistake: When Michael throws Dr. Loomis out the window at the school, the next shot shows him being thrown through a glass door.

Revealing mistake: Dr. Loomis fills his tank, and when the camera changes it is not Donald Pleasance. (00:18:30)

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

Trivia: Due to an impending writer's strike, the script was completed in only 11 days by writer Alan B. McElroy. McElroy cracked the story, and managed to complete a final draft in this short period of time, reportedly turning it in only a few hours before the strike began.

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).
