Best horror movie mistakes of 2009
Continuity mistake: During the paper cut scene, when Bella is thrown against the table, there are 5 vases of flowers and 3 sets of candles. After she hits the table she lands against one of the vases and knocks the 2nd one to the floor, but the next shot shows only one vase left upright.
Continuity mistake: When Vaines takes out his gun whilst using the camcorder's night vision mode, the condition of his thumbnail in the close-up shot of him taking out his gun looks completely different to how it is in the close-up shots of him holding the camcorder. In the gun shot it looks dirty and unkempt but looks clean and pristine in the camcorder shots.
Factual error: When the group discovers the armoured truck in the woods, the officer says it's from the 1950's. After they open the door and are looking at the money, it looks brand new. Money sitting in the weather and heat would get mouldy and deteriorate after 50 plus years
Continuity mistake: After Esther suffocates Daniel in the hospital, Kate slaps Esther in the face. The hospital staff then hold down Kate and she drops her iPhone, screen down. The iPhone starts ringing, even though the screen is facing the floor. In the next scene, it is still ringing, but with the screen facing upwards.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, the doctor invites the two girls knocking on his door inside out of the rain because their car broke down. He gives them both water (laced with drugs). One of the girls knocks her glass over, spilling most of the water, which can be seen as the glass sits on the table. Then when the doctor leaves the room, while the two girls are talking, you can see that the glass on the table magically is filled again.
Continuity mistake: A spirit knocks Christine over and gives her a bloody lip. Her boyfriend tends to her lip, which is very swollen. As she sleeps, there is a close up of a fly going into her mouth between her lips that are not swollen at all. After she swallows the fly, she sits up and her bottom lip is swollen again.
Continuity mistake: In the bar, Jennifer stops to talk to Needy while carrying the special "9/11" drinks consisting of red, white and blue layers of liquor in tall thin glasses. Midway through the conversation the blue layer in the left glass gets about a centimeter wider when they cut to a different camera angle, then returns back to its previous level.
Plot hole: At the beginning there is an audio recording of Thomas talking to the police. He explicitly says 'They killed her! They Killed my sister, my mom!' or something to that effect and that Thomas was arrested for the rape and murder of his sister and he killed himself in custody. At the end, his sister is killed and the little epilogue says that the sister's body was found in her brother's arms and when their mother found out about the 'death of her children' she killed herself. That doesn't make sense logically. Thomas was alive when his mother was dead, according to the clip at the beginning.
Factual error: The scene where Princess and Steven are in Chrome Skull's truck, they are trying to dial 911. They are denied access because the phone is password protected. This would never happen. Even though there is a lock on the phone, it would be automatically deactivated for 911 calls. When you lock your cell phone to protect it from unwanted usage, the phone will deny all usage EXCEPT 911 calls.
