Revealing mistake: Mac and Dillon go after the Predator. The Predator is sitting in a tree, and Mac points him out to Dillon. They both agree that they see it and take position. Mac crawls underneath the alien and is killed by his laser. The Predator then sees Dillon and lasers his arm off. Dillon's arm falls to the ground with the gun firing. Quickly Dillon turns and reaches for the machine gun around his neck. When he turns you clearly see his bloody right stump and his right arm sticking out the bottom of his jacket. [Note: As far as I can work out, this has been cunningly edited out of the UK DVD version].
Continuity mistake: Near the middle of the film we see that Michael has a transparent reflection in a mirror because he is a half vampire. Yet, earlier in the film when the other vampires, who are full vampires, are in the video store, their reflections can be clearly seen in a glass counter. (00:12:10)
Continuity mistake: When the two cops pull the stripper over, their car stops in the middle of the road. When Beck and Gallagher pass them later, however, their car is closer to the pavement. Their car moves yet again when Beck looks back at them out of his window. Also notice that three headlights are now on, including one that the stripper blew out. (00:51:30)Daz
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the 3 women are being pursued in the mansion by a morphing Jack Nicholson, Susan Sarandon falls over a balcony and is about to hit the marble floor below. Cher and Michelle Pfeiffer begin to laugh and urges Susan to laugh also as doing this causes them to float. Susan begins a nervous laugh and just before she might hit the floor she begins to float above it. Right here you can clearly see the two wires that are holding her up.
Revealing mistake: Toward the end, after Ricky decapitates the old Mother Superior, a young nun assumes she is alive and taps her shoulder. Mother Superior's head falls off and to the floor. There is no blood whatsoever. The old woman had just been decapitated moments earlier, and there isn't even a drop of blood, not even on the white part of her nun outfit at the neck.
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene near the end of the movie when Judy's father is smashing up the doll maker's work and fighting with Mr. Punch, a crew members hand is very visible working Mr. Punch.
Continuity mistake: When he puts the pins in her eyes, evey time it is shown it's different - sometimes they are all covered in blood, sometimes only some of them or one, and sometimes there's no blood at all.
Other mistake: Despite the noise of the demon in the house, the tornado clouds outside, the flashing lights from the demon exploding and the fireworks in the sky - not a single neighbor is anywhere to be seen. Even after daylight breaks the neighborhood is a ghost town as we pan away from the actors.jerimiah
