8mm

Corrected entry: Nic Cage tells the old woman on the phone that the company that provided the film for the snuff movie was discontinued in '92 so it had to be made prior to that, yet when he pulls Mary Anne's file from the police station, it reads that she'd been missing since '93.

Correction: That simply means they stopped making the film in 1992. The bad guys who made the snuff film may have had some left over. I still (as of 2011) have some 25-speed (ASA25) film left over that Kodak stopped making in 1998.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Nicholas Cage is watching the first of the 'snuff' movies he bought, he is smoking a cigarete. Disgusted by the film, he ejects the tape from his VCR and starts playing the second one. Now there is a shoot from above, showing him lighting another cigarette. He must be a really fast smoker.

Correction: It is actually the same cigarette, he is just re-lighting it because it went out while he was watching the snuff film.

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas Cage is being escorted to fetch the roll of film from his car, there are a few scenes where the accountant is holding a gun to Nicholas's head. When the camera is directed at the accountant, two hands can be seen grasping the gun, but when the camera is facing Mr Cage, initially there are two hands but after the next switchback there only appears to be the one!

George Higgins: You know the best part of killing someone? The look on their face. It's that look. Not when they're threatened. Not when you hurt them. Not even when they see the knife. It's when they feel the knife go in. That's it. It's surprise. They just can't believe it's really happening to them. She had that look, the girl, when she knew it wasn't just porno.
