Running Scared

Plot hole: When Oleg calls Teresa from the pedophile's playroom, he tells her the address of their house: 1456 Owens Park Lane, Hoboken. When Teresa shows up, she tells the pedophile that he called from this apartment, 1456 Owens Park Lane, Apartment 303. Oleg never told her what apartment number he was in.

Revealing mistake: 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. (00:02:00)

Dez: Geez, Edele. It looks like we picked up a stray. Better get another ice cream cone.
Edele: I think you're right, Papa Bear.

Trivia: 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. Watch the credits for an animated visual.
