Jigsaw picture

Plot hole: Spoilers. It's revealed that the barn game takes place at an old farmhouse owned by the family of Jill Tuck - Jigsaw's widow. It's public knowledge that she was married to Jigsaw and that buildings they owned served as the headquarters of several past traps, so the barn should have been investigated at some point in the meantime. Ten years have passed. It makes no sense that the barn was never investigated and that the bodies of the barn victims were never discovered.

Suggested correction: The game was unknown to police even 10 years after John died. Now they've found all his other games and his multiple lairs. There would be no need to continue the search.

Cult of Chucky picture

Revealing mistake: When Chucky's disembodied head tries to bite Andy in the beginning, watch closely. When the plaque he's mounted too leans forward suddenly as Chucky snaps at Andy, you can see a rod underneath of it, which was used to make it move and lean forward by the puppeteers.

Dismissed picture

Plot hole: It seems highly unlikely that Lucas would be able to "mess with" Mr. Butler's application for a professorship position, or be able to accomplish what he did in such a short amount time. Off-screen, Lucas went into Mr. Butler's briefcase (foolishly left on his desk in the classroom during lunchtime) and (correctly) assumed Mr. Butler's application was on his laptop. Lucas would have to be able to figure out Mr. Butler's password (something that could take forever), find the right file on his laptop, read or scan the application to determine what he could do to mess it up, write a new answer for "qualities that make me a good teacher", and leave the classroom before anyone saw him. Lucas would also have to assume that Mr. Butler would not notice the change when he printed the application, made a photocopy, and double-checked the application before inserting it in the envelope and mailing it.

Revenge picture

Other mistake: To stop herself from bleeding after removing the tree branch from her body, Jen heats the wrapper of a beer can and places it against the wound. Later it is revealed that doing this resulted in the logo being branded onto her skin. However, if the wrapper was placed on her skin and the logo was facing towards her, then the logo should have been mirrored, but it's not. (00:57:40 - 01:05:20)

The Recall picture

Factual error: When the astronaut is being questioned by a 3-star general, he keeps referring to the officer as "colonel", in fact the closed captioning does the same.

Revealing mistake: The bartender (Kateryna Korchynska) offers Ethan two lattes on the house. She hands them to him, and he walks out. No opacity from the liquid can be seen inside the plastic cups, and when he is moving away from the counter he leans forward quite a bit, showing the inside of the cups, squeaky clean. (00:08:00)
