Halloween: H20

Plot hole: Since this was to be the last Halloween movie, there is still a major plot hole with the way things went to make Halloween Resurrection. Yes, Michael switched outfits with the paramedic. In Resurrection, one of the nurses says, "Well, why didn't the paramedic say something?" She responds that his windpipe was crushed. Yes, this prevents him from speaking, but it doesn't prevent him from taking off the mask, proving it's not Michael.

Suggested correction: He was thrown through a windshield, hit by a van, and pinned between a tree and the same van. The fact that the mask was on his head might not registered right away. It's not surprising that it would never occur to him to take the mask off if he's groggy from the ordeal.

He was reaching for the mask, as if surprised he was wearing it, while pinned. I do understand your point, but I wonder why he didn't point to his face or at least try to remove it since he was obviously (in my opinion) aware of its presence at that point - and unable to speak due to his larynx being crushed. My biggest concern was that the authorities didn't remove the mask at the scene nor before loading him into the coroner van. Neither did Laurie/Kerri. Suspish.

H20 was meant to be the last film in the series and Michael was supposed to be killed off for good. The problem was created when they made the next film. So if anything, the mistake should have been included on that film's page, not on H20's.

Plot hole: At the end of the film all the police and ambulance vehicles manage to get into the school, but earlier Keri/Laurie smashed the mechanism that opens the gate.

Continuity mistake: When John dives out of the window after first seeing Michael, there is no way he can land on his feet. He dove out head first.

Question: If Myers switched with the paramedic (as shown at the start of the next movie) and the medic couldn't speak because his larynx was crushed, why didn't he take the mask off to show Laurie it wasn't Myers? At the end you can see that he was able to have full use of his arms and hands when he got out of the body bag, then got up after he got hit by the van and when he was pinned he raised his hands to her.

Chosen answer: There is no answer to that. Its simply bad work by the writers. They never tried to explain that. You could perhaps assume shock had prevented the paramedic from immediately taking the mask off. Unlikely though,.

Answer: Because they didn't think there'd be another movie, as this one appeared to be Myers' swan song, as it should've been.

Rob245

Answer: And seriously, only a Michael Myers could survive all of that trauma. It was a Hollywood ending that could go either way and if the ratings and the income was savory enough, the paramedic dies! So yes, maybe this paramedic was a Myers relation.
