House of Wax

Continuity mistake: After having shot Bo with a stolen crossbow, Carly and Nick search the Sinclair house for help. When Carly comes across a drawer filled with newspaper clippings and childhood photographs of the Sinclair brothers, Bo and Vincent are seen on these photos as having very fair, almost light brown hair, and yet in the film, the adult brothers both have very dark black hair. It is possible that they could have dyed it in the past, but considering one is a deranged psychopathic killer and the other his simple-minded disfigured sidekick, this seems very unlikely (admittedly, hair color can grow darker over the years, but not the the extent of changing color completely, and the photos of Bo and Vincent show them around 5 or 6 years old, not toddlers).

Audio problem: When Vincent is trying to stab Paige in the warehouse, he slashes her foot and she falls down. As he's trying to stab her through the metal grate, she's screaming but her mouth is closed.


Continuity mistake: When Wade and Carly first enter the church and think they have 'interrupted' the funeral, we see a close up of the priest's face. He looks like a real person just standing very still. Later in the film when there are more prolonged shots of the priest (when Carly hides under his clothes from Bo), you can see he is now a lot more 'waxy' and fake.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene when Paige and Blake are alone in the tent, there is a shot of Blake's cell phone sat atop a CD case, with the top line of the display showing the date and time and "NewVoiceMessage" below it. When the music stops and Blake runs out of the tent, the phone is seen in a different orientation on the CD case but still has the date/time as the top line. After Blake restarts the music, he then picks the phone up, which is still in its new position but no longer has the date/time displayed on the top line. (01:08:10 - 01:09:45)

Carly Jones: This Vincent guy is quite the artist.
Wade: Yeah. I think this Vincent guy needs therapy.
