Revealing mistake: When Natalie is in the old building and she is looking around, she opens the door and Parker's dead body falls out onto the floor. When it cuts to a close up of his body, you can clearly see the side of his neck pulsating although he is dead. (01:19:50)

Revealing mistake: When the killer calls Parker, when we see the phone it's not showing details from caller ID, it's just showing the address book.

Revealing mistake: When Natalie discovers Tosh's body, a close up shows Tosh visibly blink her eyes.

Revealing mistake: In the chase sequence, we get a shot of who is supposed to be "Brenda" driving, but we see the eye of a man, not a woman. Brenda doesn't have bushy eyebrows, and her eyes are a different shade of blue. (01:20:05 - 01:24:20)

Plot hole: During the end the murderer is thrown out the front window of the building. The students leave the building through the front door, but yet there is no body, and that doesn't seem to bother them!

Question: I do not completely get the whole "Gang headlight" thing at all,I've seen the film more than 10 times but it still is confusing.

Answer: For another, film centric, explanation, the Kevin Bacon film - Death Sentence features the gang high beam initiation. It's really what starts off the whole film plot and vigilante revenge storyline.
