The Assassin picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Maggie goes to the restaurant with Bob, he offers her the case where the weapon is. Bob says, 'It's loaded'.

Maggie closes the case and says, 'I don't understand.' After Bob explains what she is to do, then leaves, Maggie opens the case again and suddenly there's a clip in the weapon (loaded) and another one beside it. The weapon was not loaded when she looked the first time.

Sliver picture

Revealing mistake: After Naomi is thrown from her balcony in the beginning, the blood on her face has beaded down her face and is staining her blouse. This is impossible being that the injuries she received happened less than a second before and she landed face down after going through the glass, so the blood couldn't have ran down her face in that direction.

Malice picture

Plot hole: Andy is interrogated by the detective after the latest rape, as evidence in this one points to him.

The Cover Girl Murders picture

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the film its revealed all the murders were a hoax and everyone was in on the plan to set up Rex (Lee Majors). Why then exactly were Rachel (Vanessa Angel) and Patrice (Adrian Paul) talking together and pretending like they were trying to find the killer. In one of the scenes Rachel believes she has caught a photo of one of the men who she thought might be a killer and is showing Patrice, but Rex wasn't anywhere around. Therefore why were they pretending to find a killer or keep up the illusion whilst Rex wasn't around?
