How would Laurie even know what Michael looked like?


When Michael's tricking her and she says "I just have to be sure" and she starts to take his mask off to see if its really him, how the fuck is she gonna be sure? She has no idea what Michael even looks like.

I didn't get that either

She had been a patient in that mental hospital for...maybe two years at that point? Feeling very guilty and crazy all that time alone.

She was just paranoid and crazy. Maybe she also just wanted to see what Michael's face looked like too before killing him. The look he had could convince her that he was her brother (so that she finally knew he would die for good). They are related, they have to look somewhat alike.

Unlikely, but, the killer could've been a copy cat killer that wanted to kill Laurie because they worshipped the idea of Myers, doing what he couldn't. See Friday the 13th Part 5.

Either way, rationally, she should've just killed him without touching the mask. I guess unveiling Michael before killing him would feel like a prize though at the same time. Like stealing his soul/identity before taking him out.

Actually she saw what he looked like in the first film. At the end of the original she got his mask off. She could have noticed one distinguishing feature being that one of his eyes was severely damaged

Yes, she does know because of this. She took off his mask in Halloween 1978. In H2, when it is disclosed [spoiler] she is his sister, you see a scene where she is visiting in the asylum, while they are both kids, and he turns around to see her.[/spoiler]

Seeing him once over 30 some years ago when he was a kid, and then seeing his face for a brief second 23 years ago in the dark in a panic isn't gonna be enough to know its him. And the hanger mark in his eye is dumb, if thats there then where are his burns scars from being set on fire in part 2?

reply

just as he disappears after falling over 20ft from a balcony, so do his burn scars vanish.
