Corrected entry: In the scene where Barnabas has just been released from his coffin, he chases Daphne down the street and she gets into her car and just as she is trying to lock the passenger door, Barnabas opens that door and grabs her. There is only one problem: this is a man who only opened doors in the 18th century. How did he know how a car door opens and figure it out instantly?

Correction: A door handle is pretty easy to figure out just by looking at it, especially one which has a handle and plunger button. They also had latch-type doors since earlier than the 18th century, so he's familiar with the principle. Besides which, he could have also observed Daphne using the door to get into it.


Revealing mistake: Barnabas lives by candlelight in Collinwood's "Old House," a 200-year-old mansion supposedly never wired for electricity. But just before Barnabas throws Willie down the stairs, there's a light switch visible on the wall behind them. (01:04:30)

Professor T. Eliot Stokes: If I told the police that the creature they're looking for lives by night, and sleeps in a coffin by day... they might question my sanity.
