Revealing mistake: As the three babies fly towards Mrs. Waterhouse, when they land on her it is blatantly apparent that they're merely three dolls in this shot. She actually grips two from behind and the center doll is attached to her as she moves backwards. Also, in the shot facing the babies the center baby is in the bouncer seat with the rod attachment overhead, yet, in the shot facing Mrs. Waterhouse the rod attachment is gone.
Continuity mistake: When Frank returns home from the Lynskeys, he parks his Volvo right beside the outdoor fuse box post, with the box facing beyond the trunk of the car. However, after Frank goes upstairs, in the next exterior aerial shot the Volvo is 10-15 ft. away from the fuse box post and the box now faces beyond the front of the car.

Continuity mistake: At Frank's house, while Stuart rambles on about happy and productive ghosts, Frank pours himself a bowl of Jeepers Creepers yellowish color flake cereal. After Frank sprays Stuart in the face with the Shoo Fly, Frank eats cereal that are roundish dark-colored bits.
Continuity mistake: At the police station, when Dammers tells Lucy about the day that Debra died, there is a shot of the utility knife in Frank's toolbox and the initials F.B. are written in white on the knife. Later, when Lucy finds Frank's utility knife in Mrs. Bradley's bedroom, the initials are written differently.

Continuity mistake: The colours on the dial of the freezer Frank goes in changes between shots. When Lucy turns it down you can see the colours are light and dark blue. Later on in the wider shots and when she tries to open the door and Milton Dammers stops her, you can see it's blue and red.

Continuity mistake: When Frank arrives at the Lynskeys to take care of their ghost problem, he drives onto their lawn again. In the wide shot he takes down a piece of the picket fence, which falls squarely on top of the little statues, including little Bonzo's grave, and proceeds to drive toward the house. However, the next close-up is of the statues, who are still standing, and as the car runs over them the picket fence does not slam down on them like in the wide shot of the 'same' action.
Continuity mistake: After Frank 'bumps into' the hearse leading the funeral procession, he sees Ray's ghost running up the street towards him. In Frank's front close-up as he raises his arms in shock, the whicker baskets in front of the pet shop are on his left. As Frank hits the ground the baskets are beside him and they are arranged quite differently.
Continuity mistake: At the Gazette office, as Ms. Rees-Jones watches, Steven scrolls up the next front page of the Gazette on his PC and under the photo of Chuck Hughes it reads, "..dead at age 37." However, when Frank gets into his car after being kicked out of the cemetery, under the current Gazette headline it reads, "30 yr. old Chuck Hughes who died of a mysterious heart ailment..."

Continuity mistake: While Lucy is on the floating bed, only the floral blanket that Ray tossed is on the floor. After Ray helps Lucy off, they sit together across the room and in the next shot when the bed lands, the floral blanket and now a pink blanket are on the floor near the bed. When Lucy screams as Raggedy Anne pulls on her, the two blankets are visible across the floor and their positions differ.
Continuity mistake: During the dinner with Lucy, Frank goes to the lavatory to dry his pants and when he pulls on the paper towels more than a foot is left hanging out the bottom of the dispenser. However, in the following shots it's either nothing or a some of it sticking out of the dispenser.
Continuity mistake: After Mrs. Waterhouse says good morning to her children, in the wide shot she walks to the coffee table to get her mail. In the next close-up, a couple of things disappear from the table, as well as the pillow on the floor, which leans against the couch behind the table.
Continuity mistake: When Patricia is in the kitchen, the ghost wreaks havoc and when she gasps at the exploding stove the refrigerator is visible. In the next shot when things tumble down from the top of the refigerator as it moves away from the wall, the shadows on the wall are completely different. Then the corner cabinet door under the sink opens fully, however, in the shot from under the table as she dives under, the corner cabinet is closed.
Other mistake: When Frank first runs into Ray's ghost on the street, and they duck into an alleyway to talk, Ray accidentally calls Frank (Michael J. Fox) by his real name "Mike" instead of his character name "Frank." Ray says "I felt this vise-like grip squeezing my heart, and I couldn't breathe, Mike."
Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Frank's ghost pals haunt Lucy and Ray's house, Ray begins hitting a moving Raggedy Anne doll that is near them on the ground. Look closely - behind the doll you can see a black bar that is mounted to the ground, causing the doll to jump and move.
Visible crew/equipment: When Frank is walking down the street, after he walks into the pierced man in the grim reaper T-shirt (Peter Jackson in a cameo) when he walks across the street when he gets hit by the black hearse, the camera man, the camera and a few crewmembers are visible in the car door.
Continuity mistake: Running from the ghost, as Patricia crouches behind the couch at her home and shouts, "Please don't hurt me!", the throw on the couch and the pillows change positions between shots, before she falls onto the couch, as well as the pillows behind her head after she falls onto the couch.
Continuity mistake: When Frank reaches the chapel he places the urn down and there are scattered pieces of wood hanging over the edge of the bench. After Frank breaks through some of the wood on the chapel door he causes the pedestal to fall over on the bench and the wood is gone.
Continuity mistake: In the sanatorium, after Frank accidentally knocks over the statue outside the chapel, the pedestal falls onto the bench sending the urn flying above. In the overhead wide shot the urn flies upside down as it reaches the window, yet, in the next close-up the urn is right side up as it comes through the window.
