The Howling

Revealing mistake: When the two station reporters are investigating Eddie's room, as the female bends down to the table, she is scared by a dog. In one shot you can see a black wire on the dog. (00:14:55)

Revealing mistake: The final shot of the sex-scene between Bill and Marsha is very obviously a piece of (rather cheap-looking) 2D cell animation. The actors look like cartoons, the fire is simply the same few frames repeated over and over and the background looks obviously painted.

Continuity mistake: After Karen has a nightmare on the couch, Bill comes in and comforts her. Karen's grip on Bill's shoulders changes between shots. The position of her head changes too. (00:13:30)

Donna: Haven't you ever done Assertiveness Training? Before I looked into the Doc, I did it all - EST, T.M., Scientology, iridology, Primal Scream... I don't know, I figure another five years of real hard work, and maybe I'll be a real human being.
