Continuity mistake: At the end when all the ghosts are gathered, it shows them rotating. After the counting, some ghosts change position. The torn prince first stands next to the angry princess, but later they are a few places away from each other, just like the horrible child and the dire mother.

Continuity mistake: When Kathy is attacked by the Jackal, he claws at her right breast and it falls out of the bra. In the next shot her breast is back in the bra perfectly. (00:49:00)

Continuity mistake: Cyrus gets thrown onto the slicing wheels and his body parts scatter. We see where his torso is in an overhead shot, but in one side shot of the room his torso has vanished from the same spot. When this happens, not a single drop of blood manages to hit the kidnapped siblings, despite the fact that a man was just dismembered just a few feet above their heads. With nothing stopping such a bloody mess from happening, the pair should not be as clean as they are. The machine is also free of blood. (01:20:05)

Revealing mistake: When Arthur hits Cyrus at the end, Cyrus flies back and hits the floor. The floor is meant to be solid and sturdy, yet clealy wobbles when Cyrus hits. (01:18:35)

More quotes from Thirteen Ghosts

Trivia: While the Withered Lover is stated to be proactive for the side of good, two other ghosts are never seen actually attacking or scaring someone. The First Born Son is more of a taunter and prankster, though the Torso seems to be more or less harmless as he doesn't even hurt Cyrus. The Dire Mother is also seen as harmless by herself, but she is accompanied by her disabled son Harold who carries an axe for protection.

Question: At the end, is Cyrus a ghost or a real person? If he's a ghost, why can he be seen without the glasses?

Answer: He's alive. He faked his death at the beginning of the movie to get Arthur and his children into the house, because only then would he be able to force Arthur to engage the 13th Ghost. When Cyrus is seen at the end of the movie, he is disguised with the blood patch to make it appear that he is dead to a casual observer with the glasses (everyone is wearing them at this point) and prevent Arthur from being able to figure out his plan.
