Corrected entry: On their way to babysit, Annie and Laurie run into sheriff Brackett who's investigating a recent break-in at the local hardware store. He reveals to the girls that the only things taken were "a couple of knives, some rope, and a Halloween mask." First, how can it be a break in if it's the middle of the day and the sign on the door says "OPEN"? Second, if we're to assume that Michael was responsible for stealing such a fine selection of items, why wasn't the break-in reported in the morning when Michael was already shown wearing the mask?

Corrected entry: The Myers' house is close enough to be walking distance from where Laurie lives. Yet at the end of the movie when Loomis notices the station wagon right down from the Myers' house, Loomis himself is a mere walking distance from the houses at which Laurie and Annie were babysitting. This is impossible since we were already told the street where the babysitting was taking place at was on other side of town from where Laurie lived.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Michael is stabbing his sister, the point of view camera is on his sister. But because the audience can't see what he's doing, the camera pans to the right to show the knife. Someone actually stabbing a person would not look away from the victim to watch the stabbing motion of the knife.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film when they show the different scenes in stills, the knife is shown on the floor by the sofa. Laurie had dropped it earlier after stabbing Michael with the knitting needle. He then has it again upstairs when she's in the closet. He drops it after being stabbed with the hanger. She picked it up when she stepped over him getting out of the closet and dropped it by the bed. How did the knife get back downstairs on the floor for the final stills?
Corrected entry: When Laurie spots Michael standing behind the clothes line the shot goes from Michael, to Laurie, and back to the empty spot where Michael was standing. However, Laurie never actually looked away from the area, only the camera did, so why is she so frightened when he is gone. She throws the window shut and back away, surely she saw him walk away... (00:26:35)
Corrected entry: In the opening scene, after young Michael comes out of the house with the bloody knife and his parents see him, they only utter the words "Michael?" and stand there, staring at him with their hands in their pockets. Don't you think they would be curious as to why the knife is bloody and go inside? They don't seem disturbed at all. (00:06:30)
Corrected entry: In the part where Michael Myers is driving down the street, watching Laurie and her friends walk home from school, the camera is supposed to be filming from Michael's point of view. However, they shoot it from the backseat, looking out the window. (You can see the metal grill seperating the front and back.) If Michael is driving the car how can he be sitting in the backseat?
