Continuity mistake: When you see Donna, Jim and Rudy approaching the house to get ready you see that they are the only ones on that side of the house. You can tell because the wall is on their left side, but in the next shot you also see Bill on the same side. Where did he come from? (00:30:35)
Continuity mistake: When Deckard is at the party he goes up to the opening doors and tries to sneak in. Inside you can just see a lamp and a few bronze pots on the floor but when he enters the room you can see lots and lots of furniture and objects in the room. (00:36:15)
