Murder by Numbers

Factual error: When the kid is trying to get the girl to come into his car, he is listening to Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden, and the editing is terrible. It jumps from the middle of the recital from the book of Revelations at the beginning to the opening guitar riff and then far to early into the famous lengthly scream by Bruce Dickinson. (00:52:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cass first goes through Carl Hudson's file, she is looking at pictures of Jane Doe. The pictures on the tabletop completely change between the first shot and the second, but the same paperwork is visible at the bottom of the screen both times so it's not two different areas.

More quotes from Murder by Numbers

Question: Could someone please explain what the title means and what numbers have to do with anything? I'm not a native English speaker and I don't get it.

Answer: It's like a paint-by-numbers, where a picture is outlined on a board, and each little piece of it has a number corresponding to a different color of paint. You paint in the spaces based on what the numbers tell you. Murder by numbers refers to the boys following all the "rules" about how to create the perfect murder: choosing a victim at random, etc. They're murdering based on what they've been told is the right way to do it.
