Continuity mistake: When the postcard gets splattered with blood, she never cleans it off. When the kids are cleaning the bathroom, the kid who gave it to her goes in her room and sees it. No blood on the postcard. He would be able to see the blood because he is a child. When her dad shows her the card before she kills him, it has blood on it from her point of view.

Factual error: When Stanley is at synagogue practicing for his Bar Mitzvah, and the Rabbi tells him to close the book, he does so - and a clear shot of the book cover from Stanley's left shows that the book (in Hebrew) is upside down. Hebrew books read right to left - the cover should be on Stanley's right, right side up.
