Revealing mistake: In the beginning when Michael crawls out of the mine shaft that was just bombed he floats downstream. You see that he floats up to the old man's dock. If you look at him you can clearly see that he is wearing a black lifejacket. The filmmakers didn't even try to hide it under his suit, it is clearly visible on the outside of his jumpsuit.

Plot hole: In the beginning, Rachel and Loomis are referring to Rachel's mother as being Jamie's step mother and Rachel refers Jamie as being her step sister. Rachel's mother is Jamie's foster mother and Jamie is Rachel's foster sister as said in Halloween 4.

5

Audio problem: When Tina is in the car with who she thinks is her boyfriend but is really Michael Myers; watch her lips when she says the line "Nothing Mike, that's what I get, Nothing." It is obvious that this line was dubbed in over something else as her lips do not match that particular line. (00:42:55)

More trivia for Halloween 5

Question: Up to this point in the series (and even in the next film), Michael is portrayed as a remorseless killer with no emotions. However, in this one, he takes his mask off at Jamie's request and even sheds a tear. He becomes enraged when Jamie tries to touch him, reverting back to the remorseless personality. What was the point of this sudden, and brief, display of emotion?

dewinela

Answer: Director Dominique Othenin-Girard made the puzzling decision to try and humanize Michael in this film by showing he still had some traces of emotion that could be momentarily reached. Thus when Jamie talks to him, he briefly recovers his humanity, takes off his mask and sheds a single tear. Othenin-Girard felt that this made Michael more frightening, because his evil was so great that even if he still had regular emotions that occasionally emerged, the evil inside of him would eventually take over. But it does kind of come out of nowhere and contradict the other films... hence this idea was more-or-less ignored in future sequels.
