Revealing mistake: Before Paxton is hit with the 3 prong instrument, you can see the bloody holes already on his shirt.

Continuity mistake: In the end scene in the train station, Paxton is tailing the Dutch businessman to the toilet. As he turns to go down the flight of stairs, there is a girl in a white jacket and blue jeans carrying a white bag and going downstairs behind the Dutchman. As the scene continues two seconds later, further down the stairs from the opposite angle, we see the same girl magically appear walking in the opposite direction going up the stairs.

Seujiro

Continuity mistake: When the main character has his fingers cut off with the chainsaw, you can see that three fingers (His pinky, ring and middle finger) get cut off. But in the next shot when you see his hand, and for the rest of the movie, he is only missing two fingers - his pinky and ring finger.

Continuity mistake: When Paxton & Kana escape the factory by stealing a car, he checks his rear-view mirror to see the car pursuing him - the road has a dividing dashed white line on it. When the angle changes to see them driving away from the camera, there is no line on the road.Approx. time code 1:20:00.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the guy's head is in the toilet, blood is spilling out into the water. When the shot changes to an overhead shot of the body, the water has no blood in it.

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie, the main characters are supposedly in Amsterdam, but everyone is speaking German, it's not just the main characters doing this.

Add time

Factual error: When Paxton arrives at the station at the end of the movie he is supposed to be in Germany, yet there is a sign on the platform which reads 'Praha'. Also watch out for posters and signs in bad german language like an add which reads 'Neu am DVD' (should be 'Neu auf DVD') and a sign with 'Dieser Bahnhof wird Video - bewacht' ('Dieser Bahnhof wird video├╝berwacht') on it.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Right after Kana opts for suicide by train, watch the security guard who starts running second from the left. He is having a hard time keeping a straight face and is obviously trying to hold off his laughter.

Daniel Garner

Audio problem: When the main character is talking to the American businessman near the end of the movie, when the businessman says "I mean did you do it real slow?" you can tell that his mouth does not match the words he is saying.

Add time

Factual error: In the beginning, the Amsterdam redlight district is shown. They have shown windows on which sex scene shadows appear. Actually, all redlight windows in Amsterdam have big red-colored thick curtains which are closed when any customer gets in with the prostitute. There is no way that shadows can appear and visitors can see it from outside. Doors are also closed from inside, so it is not possible to open it as shown in the film.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Paxton being tortured, when the German takes the ball out of Paxton's mouth, when the ball falls to the ground, the straps form a circle. Right before the German slips on the ball when he charges at Paxton with the Chainsaw, the straps are perfectly straight, 180 degrees.

Revealing mistake: When the lead character has his fingers cut off, you can tell the hand is just a prop, as it is completely motionless during the shot.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the Dutch Businessman has his fingers cut off by the lead character, you can tell the hand is a prop, as the skin tone does not match his hand in previous shots, and it moves unrealistically.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Paxton runs over the three Slovakian scammers with his car. Just when he hits them, you can see for a split second that the dark haired girl in the middle smashes on the windshield and "sticks" on it. But in the next shot she can be seen rolling over the car. (Slow-motion is not needed to see this.)

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the main character is being threatened by the man with the chainsaw, in one shot the chainsaw is being held near his face at about his mouth-level, but in the next shot, it is suddenly about 4-6 inches higher, right in front of his eyes.

Add time

Factual error: The amount of blood that comes out of the main characters hand when his fingers are cut off is too much to be realistic at all.

Add time

Factual error: When the girl has her eye cut off, pus begins to pour out, but realistically there is no reason for this to happen, nor would it even happen in real life.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the first scene at the disco, closely watch the two Asian girls. Right at the beginning of the scene, they are off to the right, dancing about a yard apart. Immediately in the next shot, they are standing right beside each other.

Daniel Garner

Plot hole: Theres no way Paxton could have took the bodies off the cart, laid them down, and stacked them back on top of him in the 3 seconds it took for the guy to open the door.

Continuity mistake: When Paxton follows the Dutch businessman down the stairs into the station, he passes a girl with jeans, crop top/jacket and carrying a white bag who is beginning to go down the stairs. When the angle switches (looking up the stairs at Paxton coming down) the same girl passes him going up the stairs.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Kana starts walking towards the train, the clock reads 12:53. As Paxton is leaving on the other train it reads 6:15.

Revealing mistake: Very obvious that Kana has a rubber prop and eye attached to her face. Especially when Paxton is getting ready to cut her eye off.

Plot hole: In the nightclub scene where Josh is drugged before his is taken to the torture factory, Paxton is drugged too. That means he was supposed to be taken there as well, but he ends up locked in a storage closet for the rest of the night. The two girls working for the Hostel pointed out where the bathroom was for Paxton, so they would have known where he generally was. Hard to believe that they or anyone in cahoots would not try to look for him.

Add time

Continuity mistake: We see a bloody hole on Josh's face which is obviously not made by the drill. This is in fact because part of the scene was cut where the torturer poked him in the face with a metallic object. Since no versions of that scene exist, it makes no sense for it to be there.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the kids throw rocks at the bad guys, there is blood on his head before he is hit.

Continuity mistake: The torturer crawls to get the chainsaw and as Paxton goes to shoot him he's sitting up.

Add time

amycamille1975

Continuity mistake: At the end when the man has his throat slit, there is a shot showing his hand by his glasses. In the long shot, his hand is further away.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: While there on the train from Amsterdam after Alex tells them where to go for the women if you look out of the window and watch the countryside you see the same road and tree at least three times.
