Continuity mistake: Right after Bennett takes off in the plane, Claire throws a gun to Alice. Between the slow-motion shots, the gun switches position in mid-air before Alice catches it. In the shot of Claire throwing it, the barrel is facing to the right, meaning that it should be facing to the left in the shot of Alice catching it. But it still faces the right when she does.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene at the school, where Quentin and Nancy are talking by the lockers. Quentin is wearing a Joy Division shirt. The jacket he is wearing over the shirt keeps changing depending on whether it's a closeup of Quentin or a shot of both him and Nancy. You can easily tell, as the band's name is partially obscured during closeup and fully revealed when it's further away. This changes back and forth several times during that scene. Quentin doesn't move enough to warrant the jacket changing so noticeably. (00:18:15)Mercury
Continuity mistake: The chunks of ice in the asylum dunking scene appear and disappear. When Lawrence is brought to the surface, he has two chucks of ice on him that fall off leaving none, but when the shot cuts to him being raised and locked upright, there's a chunk of ice on his right arm. A minute later when he's lowered again into the tank, there's a large chuck by his hip but vanishes when the shot switches showing Lawrence's left side. (01:07:45)KYLE
Continuity mistake: After Dave stabs Ravi, the shot cuts to Kurtis running through the woods trying to escape. Ravi (in the clown costume) is seen among the ones pursuing him, but he's either dead or dying at this point, and, obviously, cannot chase someone while riding an ATV. It's a recycled shot from when Tommy was attempting to escape.Knever
Deliberate mistake: At the beginning of the movie while driving through town the old rusty horse trailer was facing from left to right. at the end of the movie as they were leaving town, they showed the same trailer and the picture was inverted, parked in same location,however it was facing right to left.sweet-pea
Continuity mistake: When Abby slaughters the bullies, we see most of the scene from Owen's underwater point of view. First, a decapitated head floats down, leaving a trail of blood. Then, more dismembered bodies splash into the water. We get the sense that the pool water around Owen should be pretty bloody. Yet, when he surfaces, the water around him is completely clear, with no evidence of any blood or bodies.imagine21
Plot hole: When Dylan enters the vampire Vargas's bedroom to interrogate him, Dylan frequently steps away from the door to let sunlight in to burn Vargas, so that Vargas will cooperate with the interrogation. Vargas is in his bed and could easily cover himself with his sheets to block the sunlight, but never does.footnotefetish
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Ray makes a call to channel one news, he is seen to press the dial button, but when he looks to see a fleet of super hybrids, his phone is displaying a picture rather than placing a call.
Factual error: When Luke puts the starting cables on the battery of the pick-up truck sparks fly from the connection. However since he hasn't connected the cables to anything on the other end yet no sparks should be visible. Next to that the battery is nearly dead so there is no power to give the sparks in the first place.lionhead
