Crimson Peak picture

Factual error: The 'Post Office' is nothing like an English one would have been, even in a remote rural location in Victorian times. It seems to have been transposed from the American Wild West.

Insidious: Chapter 3 picture

Deliberate mistake: When Quinn is texting the boy next door, he responds too quickly for it to be real. She sends the "So you think I can stop traffic, huh?" text and gets a response within literally two seconds. She then sends the "Did I wake you up?" text and gets two responses within five seconds. Texts usually take several seconds (at least) to be delivered and opened, so even with great service and lightning-fast fingers, this is obviously far too quick.

The Blackcoat's Daughter picture

Continuity mistake: Spoiler alert: About halfway through the movie, we see Emma Roberts coming out of the shower, and the camera focuses on the gunshot wound on her shoulder, with the round scar of the entry wound on her back, and the much rougher, ragged scar of the exit wound on her front. Then at the end of the movie, where it's revealed that Kiernan Shipka and Emma Roberts were actually playing the same character, just nine years apart, Kiernan Shipka gets shot by the police officer when he finds her in the room with the severed heads. Problem is: she was facing the officer. The scars on Emma Roberts are the wrong way around. (00:31:05 - 01:15:35)

The Final Girls picture

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension picture

Plot hole: How did they get the tapes from 1988? These were included in part 3 which came out in 2011. This movie came out in 2014 so they could not have had access to them.
