Continuity mistake: Just after the doctor started the post mortem on that little girl, the front of his gown is covered with blood. Yet, a few seconds later, after the two other guys appeared, his gown looks better, with less blood. And during the whole post mortem scene, the blood spot actually changes its size a few times. (00:17:55 - 00:19:55)
Continuity mistake: When Buffy is out shopping for her dress and Pike is on his bike beside her, they stop to talk and have an argument. Buffy walks off and Pike turns his bike around to drive off, but as he does this, his bike suddenly moves a few feet away from the wall he was right next to in the previous shot. (01:01:05)
Revealing mistake: In the chase scene about an hour into the movie, Robert Loggia is shown entering the Liberty Tunnel, driving on a wet road. Note the vaulted round ceiling of the tunnel. Next, we see a series of shots of him in the tunnel, and then a shot of the sun rising over Pittsburgh as he is about to leave the tunnel. Here is the problem - the sunrise shot is taken from the Fort Pitt tunnel on a different day. Note the dry road, the barriers to the driver's left at the tunnel exit and the Fort Pitt bridge straight ahead. There is no place for the driver to make a left turn out of this tunnel. Also note that the POV is from the left lane. All the Liberty Tunnel shots show Loggia in the right lane. The next shot shows Loggia exiting the Liberty Tunnel and making a left turn from the right lane, causing a pile-up. (01:11:10 - 01:12:20)Kevin Hall
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the old lady comes out of the cafe and the children come out from behind with the remote control car, she shouts at them to get away. As she turns to cross the road the children turn to follow her. In the next shot when we see them out of the bingo hall they are walking ahead as if they had never turned to cross.
Continuity mistake: When Chet and Stanley asks Irene some questions (in the café, about 15 minutes into the movie) about the murder, the cigarette Irene smokes changes a few times between the shots. Most obvious is the length of the ashes. (00:16:13)
Revealing mistake: When the attorney Ms. Lawlor is being 'hijacked' by the ghost (we only hear his voice) Grubeck in her car, it is very obvious that a person in a black ski mask and black clothes is driving the car.
Continuity mistake: In the last scene, Tanya gets her arm cut on a piece of glass in the window by Charles, just before he turns to fight a cop. In the next shot the glass has disappeared from the window completely.
