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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: W.E brings a big part of a door into the kitchen and says "look at what your brother did to this door," and then he places it down so it leans up against the other door. Then moments later the big section of the door is now lying on the floor. It is leaning back up again a few seconds later.
Continuity mistake: When Leatherface is chasing Heather, he breaks through the door, and a large portion of the door breaks out and falls to the floor. But in the next shot, the same part of the door that fell out is still broke off, but is now half hanging from the door and then falls off again.
Continuity mistake: When Vilmer lights the girl's back on fire as she's passed out at the table, she gets up and starts stumbling towards a wall covered in keys. As she stands up, there is no visible fire on her back. In the next shot as she is up against the wall, her back is on fire again.
Continuity mistake: Between shots from when Vilmer leaves the kitchen (and throws the big broken part of door at the wall) and then when W.E leaves the kitchen seconds later, the trash over the hallway floor and the kitchen floor (cardboard, wood, paper) drastically differs position and location, and additional trash appears too.
