Running Scared

Continuity mistake: When Oleg falls out of the closet, there are no tools on the closet floor. After Teresa notices the DVDs behind the clothes, she looks down and all the knives and other tools on the floor have magically appeared.


Continuity mistake: When Joe and Oleg are in the hockey rink, the men shove Joe down on the ice, and the hockey players slap pucks into his face, causing him to lose a lot of blood. Problem with this is, the pool of his blood changes position a few times in the scene. It goes from right under his nose to farther down by his neck or shoulder.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the ice rink, when the mobster has the shotgun to Joey's chest, the mobster spots Oleg, who is pointing a gun at him. When the camera is facing Oleg, he is holding the gun with one hand. Then, the camera cuts to a shot of the mobster. In this shot, we can see that Oleg now is holding the gun with two hands. The camera cuts back to a shot of Oleg, and now he is only holding it with one hand again.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning part of the movie when Joey is driving in the car with Oleg, they come very close to hitting a man on his bike. At this moment, Oleg says, "We're gonna crash". Later, at the end of the movie, at this exact spot, Oleg does not say this. He should, seeing as this is basically a flashback of what had already happened.

The money that the two gang members are counting in the opening view of the hotel room scene is obviously fake. Notice how white the bills are, when they should be greener and have more of the random anti-counterfeit features.



Throughout the movie, references to the Grimm fairy tales can be seen everywhere. The 'pedophile scene' was supposed to be heavily influenced by the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale. The door mat is German for "Hansel and Gretel" in mixed up letters. Also, the name on the medicine bottle Oleg grabs is Edele Hansel. The prostitute is supposed to be the Blue Fairy, Oleg being captured by the homeless man is Little Red Riding Hood. Above all, the town's name, though never stated, is Grimley.
