Halloween

Other mistake: Michael kills the truck driver and takes his clothes. Everything fits him perfectly, despite Michael being taller and bigger than the other guy. (00:53:00)

Suggested correction: This is incorrect, the truck driver's overalls look obviously baggy on him when shown wearing them, and although Michael is definitely taller than the truck driver within this remake, there's no doubt in my mind that they are about as big as each other in terms of shoulder width, body width. In reality it would fit Michael perfectly.

Factual error: Federal institutions have strict rules for inmates or patients based on the reason for their incarceration, including substituting metal utensils with safer plastic ones. Despite being convicted of brutally killing his family, Myers is still trusted with a sharp metal fork - resulting in the nurse's death.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when Michael removes the knife from the drawer, you can see the blade bend.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Michael puts the mask on with bloody hands yet he gets no blood on the mask.

Suggested correction: This entry is completely wrong. The last person in the remake that Michael Myers murdered was in fact Joe Grizzly AKA the dark skinned truck driver, and this was on the same night in which Michael had escaped the mental institution. When Michael finally makes his way into Haddonfield once again, it's daylight, indicating that it's a new day, which is Halloween, so the blood from killing Joe would have dried up, obviously. Therefore no wet dripping blood would have stained the white mask.

Continuity mistake: When Michael Myers busts into the bathroom stall occupied by the truck driver, the glass on the framed advertisements on the opposite side of the stall is broken and we hear glass hitting the floor. When Myers leaves the stall, the glass in the frame is still intact.

Continuity mistake: Near the film's end, Myers crushes Dr. Loomis' skull with blood protruding from several parts of his face. In the following shot of him being dragged into the house dead, his face and head are perfectly fine.

Factual error: When Laurie, Annie, and Lynda are walking home from school on Oct 31st, you see the "fall" leaves on the ground, however the surrounding trees are as green as can be. (01:04:15 - 01:05:30)

Continuity mistake: Laurie's hair changes from curly to straight frequently in the Myers' house.

Revealing mistake: In the rape scene, the guard hits Michael in the back with a baton. It leaves an indent in the material of the suit he's wearing underneath his robe.

Factual error: There's no way a body can be pinned to the wall with the tip of a butcher's knife.

Character mistake: When Sheriff Brackett is talking to Loomis at the food stand, he calls him Don. His name is Sam. Even says it in the subtitles. (01:19:35)

Continuity mistake: When Michael beats the kid in a park with a stick, the attack only lasts a minute yet the new blood on the kids face is dried up, presumably from earlier takes. The dry blood effect is seen in more scenes throughout the movie.

Continuity mistake: 10-year-old Michael has just returned home from trick-or-treating and is eating candy in the kitchen. The black handle of his pumpkin basket is raised in close-up shots while down in other shots.

Character mistake: The title card shown after Deborah's suicide states that Michael's escape from the asylum takes place "Fifteen Years Later." Yet the night after the escape, Sheriff Brackett refers to her suicide having been seventeen years ago. (00:38:40 - 01:29:00)

Plot hole: Laurie calls the police from 1987 Winchester drive, and gives them that address. Yet the police responding to the call go directly to 1960 Winchester drive - where Laurie has run to and is now hiding - even though it's on the other side of the street and several houses down. (01:31:30 - 01:33:40)
