Continuity mistake: Shortly after the scene in which the killer pulls Randy into the van, Gale and Dewey run to the van and see the blood. Right before they open the door, there is a camera shot from inside the van through the window. You can see that the window is not broken: it is obvious that there is some sort of white fabric over it.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning where Jada Pinkett Smith is stabbed in the back, you see a white girl to her right look down at her arm as Jada's blood lands on her.

Continuity mistake: When Gale is in the theatre and gets shot and falls from the stage, she has blood stain on her left breast (above the place where the shot wound appears). Yet later, when she climbs back to the stage, she has no blood stain, only the shot wound. (01:37:20 - 01:45:45)

Revealing mistake: When the killer is attacking Cici on the balcony, you can see blood on Cici's back before she is even stabbed and both times she is stabbed, the knife that comes out of her back has no blood on it. (00:33:20)
