Character error 

(at around 21 mins) When Loomis and Meeker are talking down at the station, Loomis recalls the events of the first movie saying "my memory goes back 12 years." Since Halloween 5 is set in 1989 and the events of the first movie were in 1978, he should have said "11 years."

(at around 36 mins) Outside the Quick Food Mart where Spitz works, Mikey, who is wearing round sunglasses, is polishing his black Camero. Tina attempts to surprise him by putting a mask over his head. Annoyed, he pulls the mask off and tosses it into the back seat of his car; he is still wearing his sunglasses. There is a jump cut to a POV on the opposite side of the car. Mikey is no longer wearing his sunglasses. As he sits down into the driver's seat he grabs his sunglasses from the backseat near where he tossed the mask and places them on the dashboard of his car.

As with the previous film, Sheriff Meeker and his men are shown working at the Haddonfield Police Department rather than the (Warren) County Sheriff's Department, which are two separate law enforcement agencies. The station itself, patrol cars and uniforms all incorrectly refer to "police" rather than sheriff. While in reality the town could have both, it is clearly established in the film (and those before it) that Meeker is in sole charge and thus there should only be a sheriff's department.

Plot holes 

We see the police, along with Jamie and Dr. Loomis, set up a stakeout at Michael Myers' house. But a few scenes later, we see that Michael Myers has an attic full of dead bodies. Why didn't the police find these when they searched the attic before the stakeout?

Although it is supposed to be Halloween it is obvious that it was filmed in the spring/summer because all the trees are in full bloom.
