Continuity mistake: When Max and Allison rescue Dani from the witches' house, they turn on the car lights to trick the witches into thinking it is daylight. After they get in the car and drive off, the same light that was supposed to have come from the headlight is still shining after they have left.
Factual error: The Sanderson House had been turned into a museum complete with a gift counter. The museum had been closed for years (note the dust and spider webs). The fluid in the lighter Max gets would have evaporated after a few months as Zippos are not airtight like a plastic disposable lighter would be.Robert Sullinger
Continuity mistake: When the witches take Dani back to the museum, the rope they use to tie her up with changes from shot to shot. First it's up around her neck, then it's around her chest.
Continuity mistake: When Winifred turns to stone in the graveyard, her fingernails rip shreds of cloth off of Max's sweatshirt (you can see them when he falls). Exactly one minute later, when he is lying down next to Dani and talking to her, it is clear that his sweatshirt is merely ripped, not shredded. (01:28:35)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, after the witches suck the life out of Emily, Winifred looks in a mirror and says, "Well...younger," and her green cape with a hood is on her in the closeup. In the next shot, when she says, "But, it's a start," she is not wearing her cape at all. (00:07:00)
Other mistake: At Allison's party after she gets Max and herself a drink, one shot shows her going to take a drink but in the next shot from behind she takes up the cup again and drinks.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Max summoned the "burning rain of death," when they're in the graveyard, Max's hair and jacket are completely dry after he was soaking wet only five minutes prior.
Revealing mistake: Right before the witches burst through the roof of Max's house, after they retrieve the book, you can see the charge used to set off the explosion in the window just below where they exit.
Continuity mistake: When the Sanderson sisters get on the bus, the headlights on the bus are on because it is dark out. They are visibly on at that point and as well as when the bus runs over Binx but, when the sisters get off of the bus, the lights are not on (it is still dark out and it is only a few minutes later). If the bus was merely letting them off (which it was, it drove away a few seconds later), why were the lights turned off? (00:48:06)
Other mistake: Winnie could not have known that Max said, "It's just a bunch of hocus pocus," considering the three of them were still dead at that time. (They couldn't have been ghosts, because she didn't know who lit the black-flame candle.)
