Continuity mistake: When Sidney is first going into the house for the end of the movie it is clear that she is not wearing the vest underneath her clothes and as she is walking around or when she is rolling on the ground fighting with her half brother you see her bellybutton but then she has the vest on and it goes over the belly button

Continuity mistake: When the killer and Sidney are locked in the screen room together and the killer slits the movie producer's throat, if you watch closely when he's talking to Sidney and waving the knife around that in the first shot there's blood on the knife and then it goes to Sidney and back on the killer and when it cuts back there is no blood on the knife. It then again goes back to Sidney, then back to the killer and the blood has magically reappeared on the knife. (01:36:00)
Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie when Cotton's girlfriend is being stalked by the killer, he stabs his knife through her bedroom door making a few large holes, especially with the first stab mark. Later, when Cotton finally gets to the house and is lookng for his girlfriend, he goes up to her door and there are now far smaller holes in the door, all in a nice pattern. When he smashes through the door, from the other side we can see there's no damage at all, then when his girlfriend emerges the stab marks are back, but in a different configuration. (00:07:35)
Continuity mistake: When Christine gets out of the shower at Cotton's apartment she has dried off, stood and walked on the carpet, and put on a nightie. When the stereo starts blasting and she walks down the hardwood floored hallway her feet leave very wet footprints which she slips in later when the killer chases her back up the hallway. (00:03:40)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, after Dewey asks Gale to marry him, she lays one on Dewey. She leans to the left of his face when they start kissing, and at a cut away long shot she suddenly is kissing on the right... then the close up is back at the left. (01:44:30)
Continuity mistake: When the actors, Gale and Dewey are hanging around in Jennifer's house, they realise a fax is coming through.

Continuity mistake: Gale and the killer go flying through the basement door, you see the door opens out, but when they crash through it, it opens in. Its not a two way swinging door, because you see the hinge at the top of the door to open it out, not in.
Continuity mistake: When the bodyguard finds Gale eavesdropping on Dewey and Jennifer, they soon confront each other and Tom is sitting in a chair with his left hand on the arm rest. In the next shot Tom is smoking a half finished cigarette with his left hand, but he had no time to change the hand with the cigarette in it between shots. (00:40:00)

Yet, when she opens the door, the car still makes that beeping noise that happens when you leave your headlights on or leave your ignition key in the ignition. (00:37:10)
