Continuity mistake: Karen, Andy and Mike are shut in Karen's bedroom and Chucky has the opportunity of getting into the bedroom via two doors - a door leading to the hallway, or a door leading to the bathroom. The door leading to the hallway has a key in it, on the side of the door facing INTO Karen's bedroom. Yet later, Chucky runs down the hallway facing the outside of Karen's bedroom door, and first there is no key in the keyhole. Yet when Chucky smashes the door open, there is now a key in the keyhole on the outside of Karen's bedroom door. (01:17:20 - 01:18:15)

Continuity mistake: In the apartment, Chucky nearly transfers his soul into Andy, until Karen and Mike come and save Andy. Karen then takes off her coat and puts it over Andy, who lays on the floor. In a wideshot, when Mike gives Karen his gun, the coat lays about halfway up his body, yet when it cuts to a closeup we see the coat laying over his body all the way up to his neck. (01:13:10)

Continuity mistake: After escaping from the institute, Andy goes back to the apartment. When he gets through the front door, he picks the big blue rug up from the floor and tosses it to the right of the door in a heap, then drags a bench and pushes it against the front door. Yet later, Karen and Detective Norris arrive at the front foor, then smash through it. When they smash through it, Norris rolls to the floor and you can see the big blue rug now laid out perfectly in front of the door. (01:08:25 - 01:12:45)

Other mistake: Chucky emerges from the fireplace, engulfed in flames, walks to the couch and is seen crawling on the couch before falling to the floor and burning on the floor. And yet nothing else catches fire, and the few tiny flames that do drop, like on the corner of the wooden table, don't spread and put themselves out.

Other mistake: When Karen is fighting Chucky for the first time, she's holding him, but also pushing him away. At one point he's about arm's length away and she moves her hands so she's not holding him and he's not holding her, but he doesn't fall. In the next shot, his legs are up against Karen's body.

Andy Barclay: Chucky says Aunt Maggie was a bitch and got what she deserved.
Karen Barclay: Andy. How can you say such a thing?
Andy Barclay: I didn't say it, Chucky did.
