Other mistake: After Michael kills Laurie at the beginning, he hands the knife to the inmate with the clown mask. The next kill is the cameraman for which he uses the tripod ends. A few scenes later they show Michael standing holding a knife with fresh blood on it. He hasn't killed anybody with this knife yet so where did the blood come from?
Halloween: Resurrection (2002)
Directed by: Rick Rosenthal
Starring: Jamie Lee Curtis, Sean Patrick Thomas, Bianca Kajlich, Busta Rhymes, Brad Loree
Plot hole: When the first security guard, who stayed back to get something to eat, hears something in the laundry room, he walks over to the washing machine where he finds the head of the other security guard inside. He turns around screaming and trips over the security guard's body on the ground with no head. Wouldn't he notice the dead body on the ground when he first entered the room?
Continuity mistake: When at his house, the first crew member Michael kicks with a camera. He puts that camera on the ground, tripod closed and laying down. When the people first walk into the house they switch to a camera view that's up the stairs and you can see that the camera that was laying on the floor is now propped up against the wall.
Trivia: Rick Rosenthal, the director of the film, makes a cameo as a professor.
Trivia: Throughout the entire film the screams you hear from the girls in the house are exactly identical.
Laurie Strode: You failed, Michael. Want to know why? Because I'm not afraid of you. But what about you? Are you afraid of me? Are you afraid to die, Michael?
Rudy Grimes: Don't distract me.
Jenna Danzig: Oh, I can't help myself. I am distracting.
Jim Morgan: Say something smart.
Donna Chang: Existence precedes essence.
Jim Morgan: God, you're sexy.
Question: Why did Michael hand the knife to the patient with the clown mask after killing Laurie at the beginning of the movie? Was he trying to frame him for the murders at the institution, or was there a deeper meaning I might have missed?
Chosen answer: Michael handed the knife to the guy in the clown mask so it looked like the guy in the clown mask killed Laurie, not Michael.
He actually handed the knife to the guy as a memento, not to frame him.
Question: It was revealed that the person who Laurie thought she killed wasn't Michael but somebody who Michael had subdued and placed his clothes and mask on. Why would Laurie be sent to an institution for this? She wasn't aware of the fact that she killed the wrong person until the mask was removed, and since the staff seem to know about her connection to Michael, wouldn't they consider letting her go since she was only trying to stop Michael's rampage?
Answer: At first impression, Laurie was catatonic not only from the shock of killing an innocent man, but also from a lifetime of being chased down by her murderous brother. She obviously knows from past experiences that nothing she does (including faking her own death) will stop Michael from finding her. It is later revealed she has been faking her mental issues (think when she has been hiding her regular meds in the raggedy Ann doll) and is committed only to stopping Michael, no matter what the cost. She may have also been trying to protect her son and the only way to do that is to allow herself to be institutionalized in order to lure Michael there.
Answer: It's not properly explained (nothing in this stupid movie is), but the implication is that she went a little crazy due to the guilt of killing an innocent man and was institutionalized.
Question: What happened to Josh Hartnett's character after H2O? They never mentioned him in Halloween 8.
Answer: I read somewhere that he changed his name to Zeke, or something. Relocated to Ohio, or somewhere. And started dealing drugs at a high school. He also had a thing with his English teacher, she bore a startling resemblance to a Bond henchwoman. He didn't seem to be dating Molly.

Answer: Or maybe he's thinking that his mission to kill Laurie is done. He's been trying to kill her for a long time and succeeded. No need to continue, but when those kids invaded his house, the killing began again. No one goes into his house, but him.
