Halloween: H20

Revealing mistake: When Charlie turns and sees Michael after futzing with the garbage disposal, it's obvious that Michael's mask is a (rather poor) CGI creation. It looks very cartoonish and unlike the way it looks in the rest of the film. The scene was shot early in production with an original mask that eventually was tossed out for the final design when producers thought it didn't quite look right. Because Michael was in a medium-closeup shot and they didn't have time to reshoot the scene, they opted to (somewhat obviously) digitally replace the mask.

Revealing mistake: Visible wires holding up Will when Michael holds him in the air.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie Lee Curtis is teaching a class, just prior to the class trip, a shot over her shoulder shows on the blackboard 'W.B. Yates'. It should be spelled 'Yeats'. In a shot a few seconds later the spelling has been corrected.

Jimmy: Alright, let's not anyone mess with me here. I've been suspended five times this year already for getting a little crazy with the stick!

Trivia: Late in the film, before Laurie/Keri goes back inside to battle Michael alone, she tells John and Molly to "drive down the street to the Becker's". This is a reference to "Scream," in which Casey Becker's father told her mother to go "down the street to the Makenzie's", a line included in the original Halloween.

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.

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.
