The Dead Zone

Continuity mistake: Henrietta Dodd shoots Johnny holding the gun in her right hand. Sheriff Bannermann emerges from the bathroom and shoots Henrietta. The film switches to slow motion as she is shot and stretches both of her arms out to the sides as she falls. When she lands, her left hand is resting next to the railing of the stairs and is covered in blood. At no time did her hand come in contact with her wound or get any blood splattered onto it.

Revealing mistake: The stunt dummy that falls from the balcony in John's stead is pretty obvious. Its blank face is even visible briefly as it falls, and again when it lands.

Visible crew/equipment: When Sarah drives away from the clinic in tears after seeing Johnny, the side of her car shows us two banks of studio lights, a reflector panel and part of the camera crew.

Factual error: When the milk tanker detaches from the truck hauling all of the side lights remain lit. The lights are powered from the truck through cables that would definitely disconnect in this scenario.
