The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Continuity mistake: When Jenny is hiding in the trees all out of breath, after Vilmer drives off in his truck, the left shoulder strap of Jenny's prom dress is up on her shoulder but then in the next shot it has fallen down her arm. In the following shot it is back on her shoulder! Also there is a flowery corsage on her dress which is on top of a bow which is part of the dress; but in the next shot the corsage is under the bow, then back to being on the bow in the final shot.

Continuity mistake: When Leatherface grabs Heather on the porch, he pulls her towards the door and then rams into the door with Heather in his arms going into the door first. However when it changes to an interior shot of the house, and they come bursting through the door, Leatherface comes in first with his back to the door. (00:26:10)

Continuity mistake: Jenny wears a white silk scarf loosely around her neck, as part of her prom outfit. As Leatherface chases her through the muddy river, the scarf falls down her body to her waist. In the next shot though, it's back round her neck. But oh no, the fun doesn't stop there. After this, she removes the scarf from her neck and throws it in the river, not one, not two, but THREE times between shots. (00:36:25)

Continuity mistake: After Jenny yells "It's fucking pathetic" to Vilmer, Vilmer gets mad and throws a book across the room, and then grabs Darla and throws her to the floor. The chair next to Darla has three bones on the top of it as 'decoration.' As Vilmer grabs her and throws her down, the tall white bone on top of the chair falls to the floor. But in the next shot as Vilmer whacks W.E with a hammer, the bone is back on the chair. (01:05:35)

Continuity mistake: When Leatherface is putting Heather in the freezer and then when he runs out of the room, the rate at which the lightbulb on the cord swings differs between shots through the scene. In one shot it's totally still, but it is swaying violently in the next shot. (00:27:15)

Continuity mistake: As Jenny is climbing up a big aeriel on the roof, Leatherface swings his chainsaw at the aeriel. In shots of him swinging the chainsaw, Jenny has disappeared from the aeriel. You can almost see the whole aeriel, and she isn't there! (00:38:40)

Continuity mistake: When the motorbike rides by, Jenny runs after it yelling "No, wait." In this shot Jenny has the flashlight in her right hand and the big red rose as part of her prom outfit is on her left breast. But the next shot is obviously flipped, as the torch is now in her left hand and the rose is on her right breast. (00:19:25)

Continuity mistake: When Leatherface gets Heather in the house, he grabs her and drags her down the hallway, as he enters a room, Heather grabs the sides of the doorway, to pull herself away from him. In the shot, you can see the wall to the right of the doorway has a mirror on the wall, nothing else, and on the counter below is a few lone lightbulbs and a coke can. However in the next shot, so many objects appear. There's now meathooks, chains and belts hanging on the wall either side of the mirror, and the counter is now covered in canisters, metal barrels and boxes. (00:27:05)

Continuity mistake: When Jenny is standing at the open door of Vilmer's truck, asking him where Sean is, she has her left hand resting on the truck door. In the next shot it's her right hand resting on the door, and then her left again in the next shot. (00:31:20)

Continuity mistake: The cut above Jenny's left eye differs in various scenes. For instance, in the kitchen scene it is at least a centimetre above her eyebrow, but then in the scene where Vilmer holds the knife up to her throat it is right above her eyebrow. (00:51:20 - 00:54:30)

Barry: Once, I kissed her once! God, it's like I can't talk to my friends anymore, I can't believe how posessive you are.
Heather: Oh right, I guess that's why you were feeling her up?
Barry: Look, guys need sex. It's bad for you if you get all worked up and then not get it, you can get "prostrate" cancer. Is that what you want?

Mistakes

When Leatherface is chasing Jenny, she gets into a couple's caravan. After Leatherface tries to get in, it cuts to an exterior shot and as Leatherface is running along with the caravan, in the window behind him you can see a crewmember with a cap on, running behind him off-screen.
