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 or at least try to remove it since he was obviously (in my opinion) aware of its presence at that point. My biggest concern was that the authorities didn't remove the mask at the scene nor before loading him into the coroner van. Suspish.

Continuity mistake: Although I understand the fact that H20 didn't want to include the Halloween 4, 5 and 6 timeline, Michael was burnt to a crisp by Dr. Loomis in the epilogue of Halloween 2, so he should have a fully burnt body. Also Michael was shot twice by Laurie in Halloween 2... He would have at least had scars/damage to his face in H20.

Suggested correction: This is addressed and left unexplained in the film, as Laurie's son doesn't believe Myers could have possibly survived the events of 'Halloween II' but apparently has anyway. We are left to speculate whether 'Halloween II' had truly ended the way we had seen, or if the recent killings were not actually by Myers but a copycat stalker, or if Myers is supernatural, etc. Viewers are free to consider this a bad or stupid choice if they wish, but strictly speaking it isn't a mistake.

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.

More trivia for Halloween: H20

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.
