Other mistake: 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, which wasn't photographed at the time, it's clearly a still from the movie.
9. 1/10. Possibly one of the best sequels of the franchise. The atmosphere matches the original in being chilling as it seems like Myers has a ghostly presence on Haddonfield. If anything he can be there in spirit enough to frighten people. Danielle Harris plays Jamie Lloyd well here. She really seems to be the embodiment of frightened child being chased by the Boogeyman.
Earl: Martians could land on Ben's doorstep and all he'd do is spit once and get himself a shotgun.
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."
