Revealing mistake: When Father Karras sprinkles holy water on Regan, they forgot to paint her ear lobes and it looks terrible. (01:32:30)

Revealing mistake: As Father Merrin speaks to another archaeologist in the beginning of the movie the clock on the wall stops between ticks and he turns around to look at it. It's easy to see that the clock pendulum has been pushed up against the window from behind in order to make it stop. (00:06:45)

Revealing mistake: As Chris walks around the attic to see what's making the noise the shadow of the candlestick appears on her face which is not possible as it's the only light source up there. (00:30:15)

Revealing mistake: As Father Merrin puts his hand on Regan’s head, nasty green vomit starts to come out of her mouth. If you look closely when she turns her head towards him you can see the hose under her ear that proceeds under a false cheek and into her mouth.

Revealing mistake: You can see wires in the scene where Regan levitates above her bed in the exorcism scene, lifting her up. The way they pull on her dress is also visible.
