One common criticism is that the hospital is too conveniently dead, even for a night shift, for Michael to be able to walk around unnoticed and kill the hospital staff. Rick Rosenthal said he based this off a personal experience he had with his wife where they once attended a hospital late at night and it was completely deserted, save for a few doctors and nurses and the patients.

(at around 1h 15 mins) When Loomis and the nurse are in the deputy's car, Loomis shoots out the window and the car makes a hasty reverse turn. On the road, there are at least 2 identical swerve marks. This would indicate the scene had been shot multiple times. See more »
Michael Myers (age 23) is listed in the ending credits. The film takes place in 1978 when Michael Myers is 21 years old, which is also stated by Dr. Loomis in the movie. See more »
A scene that was scripted and shot but not included in either the theatrical or TV version of the film had Robert Mundey and the WWAR crew traveling to Haddonfield Memorial to try to interview Laurie on the events of the night. They are met, however, by a stern Mrs. Alves, who warns them to leave before she calls security while Janet, Jill, and Jimmy watch on. See more »
One of the few film sequels that stands up to the original
Though the original Halloween was a remarkably better film, Halloween II manages to frighten us several times, and is much more enjoyable than any of its successors.
Halloween II works best when watched directly following Halloween, the first scene acts just like the last scene of Halloween, only from a different perspective. It works like the second half of the first film, only in a less interesting environment (a regional hospital).
If you weren't a fan of the original, then there's no reason to see part 2, but the movie still works quite well on it's own terms.
