Ghost

Other mistake: When Carl has received the Nassau bank account number from the drug dealer on the phone, afterward you see him typing in "Rita Miller" on the computer. If you watch closely, his left hand pinky never touches the "A" key on the keyboard, yet the "A" in Rita comes up just fine and out of sync with the clicking sounds of the keyboard.

Other mistake: When Molly and Sam are "dancing" to the jukebox playing Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers, the tone arm is shown dropping onto the record at the start of the music. When the song finishes, the arm is still at the beginning of the record and then lifts off, as if the reject button was pushed before the record played.

Other mistake: At the time Sam is shot his soul separates from his body, indicating that he dies, but in the next shot the ambulance is carrying him to the hospital in order to help him.

Suggested correction: If paramedics think there might be a chance to save someone they will continue treatment until a doctor has made the call to stop. Just because the paramedics continued to try to save him doesn't mean he hadn't already died, just that they were not yet willing to give up.

I've seen Emergency Medical Technicians and County Coroners call "dead at the scene" many times, without any attempt to resuscitate. In Sam's case, in this movie, he certainly seems to be dead, just a moment after the gun discharges.

Continuity mistake: Where Swazye and Moore are at the pottery wheel, seconds after their hands and arms had been smeared with clay, they're clean.

Question: Did the subway ghost commit suicide or did someone push him on the train tracks?

Joey221995

Answer: He tells Sam he was pushed and takes exception to Sam's incredulous response, adding that he didn't jump nor did he fall.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: He killed himself by jumping in front of the train. During his conversation with Sam, he's offended by any suggestion that he committed suicide. Soon afterwards, he forgets who Sam is, which indicates that he has mental health issues. He then jumps in front of a train.
