Jaws 3-D picture

Continuity mistake: When Dan walks down to a podium and looks over to see the dolphin knocking at the gate, the tee-shirt he is wearing changes from being plain white with a tag badge on his left, to a white shirt with a large blue stripe across it, with a tag badge being on the right.

Christine picture

Continuity mistake: When Christine is fixing herself after the guys smashed her up, her front end is shown to be perfectly straight for its entire width and the hood is missing. Near the end of the scene, the front end is shown crushed and unfolds again, and the hood appears from nowhere.

Psycho II picture

Revealing mistake: At the end when Norman is being stabbed at by Mary dressed up as Mother, Mary stabs Norman in the hand. You can plainly tell that this hand is a doll, as it is not a natural colour, it is stiff and is stationary, unlike Norman who is moving his hands.

Cujo picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the telephone rings, Cujo bounds over and begins barking at it. After he has finished barking, he lingers in the window frame, and then, you can see a crewmember's hand come in, and pull him down from the ledge.

The Dead Zone picture

Continuity mistake: Henrietta Dodd shoots Johnny holding the gun in her right hand. Sheriff Bannermann emerges from the bathroom and shoots Henrietta. The film switches to slow motion as she is shot and stretches both of her arms out to the sides as she falls. When she lands, her left hand is resting next to the railing of the stairs and is covered in blood. At no time did her hand come in contact with her wound or get any blood splattered onto it.

Nightmares picture

Visible crew/equipment: As the priest is loading his luggage in the car, a large light is reflected in the quarter panel. It is not the sun, as that is ahead to our right while the light is behind us to the left.
