Halloween

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Aaron is pumping gas, the display on the pump is blank. When he's finished, the display suddenly shows the amount dispensed and the amount due.

Other mistake: The officers working at the Smith Grove Sanitarium have "police" on their uniform patches. When Michael Myers was boarding the bus to be transported to a different sanitarium the bus had a Corrections Department decal. Since corrections officers run prisons and jails along with sanitariums, the uniform patches should have said corrections, not police.

Audio problem: At the babysitter house, her boyfriend Dave goes out and finds a motorcycle in the garage to the side of the house. He goes in and starts it, revving up the engine loudly. Several shots while he's doing this show the babysitter and the boy sitting in the boy's room reading and they are unable to hear the motorcycle that's blasting its engines loudly. However, moments later when Michael stabs her in that room and she screams, he is able to hear her scream through the house, through the closed front doors, through the yard and into the garage where he was trying to pick the motor cycle back up. How was he able to hear her scream through all that but they couldn't hear the bike which was considerably louder?

Trivia: Allyson was seated in the same place in the classroom as Laurie was in the original, and even looks outside in the same way, this time seeing her Grandma instead of Myers.

Trivia: This will be the first film in the franchise with direct involvement from series creator John Carpenter since 1982's "Halloween III: Season of the Witch." Carpenter will serve as an executive producer on the film, in addition to writing the film's musical score. Carpenter, dissatisfied with the prior sequels and the 2007 remake, sought out to return to the series and guide the direction this film went in.

Question: Does anyone know which scenes Nick Castle is playing Michael Myers? I know he is Myers when Laurie tries to shoot him through the window and the after credits breathing was his. But is it him any other times?

Gavin Jackson

Answer: Based on multiple things that I've heard, those are the only two times Nick Castle is on screen. He was mostly just there to help James Jude Courtney get the mannerisms down.

New this month Question: The last we saw of Michael Myers he was trapped in a basement with a fire that started, and wasn't shown making any attempt to escape. I know he is never shown dead, except nothing in the movie gives any valid evidence that Michael Myers used a Houdini to get out of the basement. Nothing shows or implies that he escaped, but a sequel is in the works. If he survived during a fire then how the hell did he escape the basement?

New this month Answer: This is meant to be ambiguous on purpose. We are not supposed to know how he got out... if he got out.
