Continuity mistake: At the very end, when Sid finds out who the killers are, they are all standing in the kitchen. When Billy and Stu stab each other take a look at the blood stain on the left side of Stu's jumper. It starts around his shoulder and vertically goes down towards his waist. When Sid is fighting him in the lounge she gets up and goes behind the TV. In the shot looking straight down on Stu from a birds eye view, notice the blood stain is now horizontally across his stomach. You'll have to look closely for this one.

Continuity mistake: When Stu & Billy are in the kitchen after Sydney has escaped them, she calls Stu's house phone. Billy gets pissed and throws the receiver at Stu. It bounces off him and lands on the floor, yet when Stu picks up the receiver to talk to Sydney, it's on the table.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Stu and Sidney begin tumbling (right before he gets killed) there is a bench in the background with a bag of ruffle potato chips facing upwards, in the next shot it is lying down.

Continuity mistake: Pay attention to the scene where Randy gets the call that the principal is dead and the rest of the group races off to try to see the body before they cut it down. Five or so people get up and run towards the door. When they are shown in the exterior shot running from the house to the car it is an entirely different group that are not even dressed similarly. This was due to the fact that the group were made up of actors whose contracts were by the week. The exterior shot was the only thing they didn't get during that initial week and to bring them back for that one shot they would have had to have been paid for an entire new week, which was too expensive for one shot. They just used extras instead.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Casey is cooking popcorn on the stove. When she peels the top off, you see her peel the side away from the handle, and she's using her left hand, but when the shot changes, she's using her right hand, and is pulling from the other side.

Continuity mistake: The Halloween scenes in the movie don't match up. For example, Randy is watching the part where JLC first discovers the bodies. About ten movie minutes later in Halloween, she's hiding from Michael Myers in the closet. Then Billy gets the idea to search for Sidney, because that's the scene currently playing. Too much time occurs between scenes for this to occur.

Continuity mistake: When the killer sneaks up on Randy, Randy is lying back against the sofa. When Ghostface raises the knife Randy is lying back, relaxed with a tired look on his face. On the delayed footage when the killer raises the knife, Randy leans forward and is practically on the edge of the seat, his mouth and eyes wide open.

Continuity mistake: When the whole gang is watching Halloween, they see the scene in which Michael Myers impales a victim with a knife, which suspends him from the wall. Just before Randy pauses the movie, Michael Myers is standing and admiring his handiwork. When Randy pauses it, the frame is of Michael Myers raising the knife, which of course, happened 10-15 seconds ago.

Continuity mistake: How come everyone including Randy had their jackets on and appeared to be leaving the party and yet Randy was the only one left at the party at the end, before the bloodbath? The answer to this spawns another goof itself: Randy said he'd stay behind to check on Billy and Sydney, which is why he didn't leave. However, the goof is that he didn't actually go upstairs to check at any time, because he'd either have seen them having sex, or else found Billy's body. Of course, another explanation is that we're made to think that Randy must be the killer, because he's the only one who stayed behind. We just don't know.....

Continuity mistake: When all the guys are sat outside of the school talking about who (a male or a female) is the murderer, Tatum's leg is behind Stu's leg. In that same action, we go to a close up and suddenly Tatum's leg is in front of Stu's leg.

Continuity mistake: When Randy is explaining the rules of a horror movie to the people at the party he pauses the movie and says "Jesus Christ you don't know the rules?"

Continuity mistake: Sidney is on the roof trying to escape from the killer and she falls off. When she gets up she sees the dead body of Tatum in the cat door and her left arm must be behind her because you can't see it but this isn't what happened when you saw her die. Her left arm was inside the garage and was beside her. Unless if fell off, it should be next to her body.

Continuity mistake: When the cameraman is watching the 30 second delay footage and the ghost face is about to kill Randy who is on the sofa, he walks into the room in a different way on the delayed footage to on the actual film footage.

Continuity mistake: After Courtney Cox runs to the van when she's being chased, she hops into the van and throws it into reverse, guns it, then slams on the brakes, and the body falls down onto the windshield. Slamming on the brakes after going in reverse would cause the body to fall the other way, toward the back of the van.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Sidney is in Dewey's police car and the killer is there, she opens the door and falls out but the door is still locked. In some cars you can open the door when it is locked but the lock always pops up after you open the door, and this one didn't.
