Corrected entry: In the beginning when Helen asked the boys to stand up, you can see Peter Kurten standing in the front row.
Corrected entry: Segourney Weaver is attacked in the bathroom at the beginning of the film. The attacker is already in the bathroom waiting for her. How could he know she was going to need to use the restroom? His whole plan of attack hinges on her going into the bathroom. Her going in there could only be to further the plot of the film.
Corrected entry: Reuben calls Helen after the "Berkowitz" style murder and tells her that they found a note in the payphone. He even reads her part of it. But later when Rueben and MJ are at Helen's apartment, Helen asks about a note, and if she was right about its location, as if she hadn't been told already.Ral0618
Corrected entry: Isn't it strange that the cops never thought to look in the local sperm donor banks for their killer? They were totally baffled as to where he got two samples.
Corrected entry: At the start of the film when Sigourney tells all the white males in the audience to stand up, there is a fairly confused looking oriental guy in the middle of the frame standing up.
Corrected entry: The serial killer is copying the style of murder of some of the most ruthless serial killers ever. He copies Jeffrey Dahmer's by drugging a gay guy at a bar, puts a bag over the guy's head until he suffocates, then saws off the head and disposes of the body in a river. This is not how Dahmer did it! Dahmer did not suffocate them and he did the killings at his home, not an alley. He also cannibalised the bodies and kept the skull in his fridge.
Corrected entry: The killer is trying to replicate Harry Connick Jnr's attack on Sigourney near the end of the film, but he forgot about the two pieces of toilet paper she put on the seat. It seems strange that someone who is such a stickler for detail would leave something like that out, especially since the filmmakers made such a big deal out of it originally (there were detailed close ups of the paper being put on the seat).
Corrected entry: Isn't it strange that Sigourney's character is meant to be agoraphobic (afraid of large spaces), but she lives in an apartment bigger than your average football field. It's only when she ventures into the (much smaller) corridor that she has a fit.
Continuity mistake: In the last scene on the roof when Holly Hunter shoots the serial killer, he falls backwards. The gun is in his left hand and the path is next to his left hand. The camera then goes to the rear of Sigourney as she walks toward Holly. Only now the serial killer is on the other side of the path and the left hand holding the gun is no longer next to the path.
