Continuity mistake: When Annie and Laurie leave the hardware store to go to their babysitting jobs it is broad daylight. When they reach the houses apparently just a few blocks away, it is already dark.
Six year old Michael Myers murders his sister on Halloween night in 1963. He is then taken to a mental hospital where he is studied by Doctor Loomis. Then, in 1978, he escapes from the hospital, and on Halloween night he returns to the town where he murdered his sister, so that he can do harm to a baby-sitter and her friends. Halloween 1978 is the night HE came home.
Dr. Wynn: Now, for God's sake, he can't even drive a car.
Loomis: He was doing very well last night! Maybe someone around here gave him lessons.
Question: Where did all of the kids' parents go that required babysitters for the entire night? Seems like a small town such as Haddonfield would not have many options.
