Halloween

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)

Suggested correction: Initially Laurie sends Lindsay across the street, back to the Doyle house to call the police. It's possible Lindsay gave the police the Doyle's address (since that's where she was calling from). Since that call was likely made before Laurie made her call, that explains why the police first show up to the Doyle's house (responding to Lindsay's call) and Bracket shows up minutes later at the Wallace's house (responding to Laurie's call).

Plot hole: Michael could not know that Laurie at 15 was his sister, nobody mentioned it, her friends just call her Laurie.

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

Question: From what I understand in this movie Michael Myers is some psycho kid that grew up to kill again. How is he surviving direct gunshots? Is he somehow bulletproof? I don't get it.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: In the original "Halloween" movie series, the Michael Myers character is evil personified. He is SO evil, in fact, that he is bulletproof and killproof. He survives all attempts to destroy him much like Jason Voorhees in the ALL the "Friday the 13th" a series.

Yes, but that is because of all that cult of Thorn crap that is revealed in part 6, The Curse of Michael Myers. In Rob Zombie's version, Michael seems to be a "normal," as in human, kid.

But the cult storyline wasn't in their wheelhouse when they made the original. Michael would have had to been a regular child before the murder of his sister. He wasn't regarded as super human in the first two movies. In the original and Rob's remake, Myers survives being shot multiple times.

Answer: He is still a human, but in John Carpenter's version he can't die because of the curse, and in Rob's version though, he's practically a tank.
