Visible crew/equipment: When Henry helps pull Mark onto the treehouse at the beginning of the film, if you look very closely to the left you can just make out a crew member dressed in black helping him on to the platform. The crew member then ducks back under the platform.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene towards the end of the movie where the mother/aunt is holding onto Henry (Macaulay Culkin) and Mark (Elijah Wood), as they are dangling over the cliff, if you look closely at her holding onto Mark's hand, you can see a wire extending from under the sleeve of his coat to his aunt's.

Visible crew/equipment: When Henry pushes Susan off the cliff, look closely at her left side. You can see a wire attached to her hips when she falls.

Revealing mistake: When Henry throws the dummy off the bridge, watch the rear window of the gray car; it explodes before being hit.

Trivia: For the treehouse sequence, young Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood made the 30-foot climb up the tree themselves, with no safety nets or wires. However, the tree was mostly surrounded (everything outside of the camera frame) with elaborate scaffolding, sufficient to support all the camera crew and equipment, so the boys were always within arm's reach of an adult.
