Revealing mistake: The fight scene between Peter Kurten and Andy outside the gay bar is viewed from behind a metal gate. Peter smashes Andy's head into the gate twice. The bars of the metal gate bend towards the camera as if they are made of rubber.

Revealing mistake: Harry Connick, Jr. obviously has black ink or something on his tooth to make it look like his tooth is broken. You can tell while he's talking that what you should be able to see behind his teeth if there really was a gap is not there.

Revealing mistake: When Foley slits a cop's throat, the wound appears before he slits.

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.

Question: Who is Conrad? Harry Conick, Jr.'s character writes him a letter at the end, and there is a Conrad character listed in the credits, but I haven't been able to find him.

Answer: I thought that it was Peter Kurten (Foley) that broke in and left the book. However if it was Conrad, then he does not appear in the flesh in the film.

Alan Keddie

Answer: Conrad is the man that breaks into Helen's flat and leaves the book. Happens just over 1 hour into the film.
