Continuity mistake: When Melanie is walking up to the counter in the bird shop she has a black purse in her hands. In one shot she is walking to the counter with her purse in her hands, but in the following shot, her purse is laying on the counter and is now taking off her gloves. (00:02:25)Hamster
Continuity mistake: Annie's body changes position on her front steps. At first her head is on the edge of the sidewalk and Mitch doesn't move her. Then after he runs to get Cathy he comes back and covers her with his jacket and her head moved about six inches from the edge of the gravel sidewalk. (01:30:20 - 01:31:35)????
Continuity mistake: When Lydia first looks into Mr. Faucet's room she sees a dead bird smashed up against his window. If you look at the drawing of the backdrop outside the window it's a bright sunshiny day but when Lydia was just outside, and again when she leaves, the sky was overcast. (01:00:20)????
Continuity mistake: The shadow of the statue on the right of the piano changes between shots. When we first see it in this scene the shadow falls right in the center of the picture of father then as they all sit waiting for the attack the shadow falls on the right side of the picture.

Continuity mistake: As Melanie sooths Kathy she has a towel in her right hand that she drops on the green pillow to the left of the couch. We catch a glimpse of it lying there as Mitch runs to put wood in the fireplace. Melanie never touches the towel again but the next time we see it it's in the middle of the couch. (01:40:50)????
