Corrected entry: Just after the towns-people have hung the three witches, you can see the executioner walking away. The outfit he is wearing is leather and has some sort of metal spikes on it. This outfit is too modern for that particular time.
Corrected entry: Just before The Sanderson Sisters put the two bullies in the cages, the blonde boy says, "why is it always the ugly girls out late?" In the background you can see a crew member run out and adjust something on the lawn.
Corrected entry: Binx is shown pouring hot liquid from a cauldron that is over a flame, the iron would be too hot for him to touch without getting burned.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when the boy runs after his sister to save her from the witch, it is morning and it is light outside. After he looks in the window of the Sanderson house, it is dark outside.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Max lights the black flame candle and the Sanderson sisters return from the dead, Dani tells the sisters she lit the candle. However, later in the graveyard Sarah Sanderson calls Max the virgin who lit the candle. She could not have known it was Max and not Dani who lit the candle.
Corrected entry: When the sisters are about to be hanged, the lynch mob can see that Winifred is casting a spell to allow them to come back to life, yet the mob just politely allows her to finish the spell before finally hanging them. Bear in mind that this scene takes place at a time when people genuinely thought witchcraft was real, so the townspeople had no reason to let her recite a spell.Phaneron
Corrected entry: When the witches follow Mary into the alley after singing I Put A Spell On You, Mary Sanderson said she smelled Scrod, a bottom feeder that would be good with margarine. 300 years prior to that, butter would be the topping of choice as margarine hadn't been invented until the 1800s, when the sisters were dead.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, Binx the talking cat speaks with a British accent. The movie is set in Salem, Massachusetts. I know he is supposed to be from 1693, but I don't think many Americans were speaking with British accents. Even if he was originally from England, I'm sure after 300 years he would lose his accent. But seeing his father at the beginning of the movie spoke with an American accent, I doubt he's from England. So where did the accent come from?kxj918zz
Corrected entry: When the children go to the old Sanderson house, Allison shows Dani Winifreds spell book. It is in a glass box. After the black flame candle has been lit, Winifred comes and pokes it and talks to it. Later on, Max has to smash open the box to get it out. The glass disappears and reappears.kaisha
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Max's teacher tells the class the story of Binx and the Sanderson sisters (shown as a flashback). Later, Allison talks to Binx and says, "so the legends are true." If no one ever knew what happened to Binx, how did the story get passed down in the first place?tayero_diggular
Corrected entry: When the Sanderson Sisters first return to the house, Sister Sarah reaches up and finds her lucky rat tail just where she left it. It's been 300 years; the rat tail would have decomposed in that amount of time. It has been suggested that since she is a witch, she could have put a resistant spell on it. But we did not see her do that in the movie, and if we do not see it, we cannot use it to explain away the mistake. That "logic" could be used to explain away many of the mistakes caught by the audience.Robert Sullinger
Corrected entry: Thackery Binx switches between a British accent and an American accent throughout the movie.
Corrected entry: When Billy used the knife to open up his mouth from the stitches, he has no teeth, or any he does have are black. However, in the scene where Max takes the potion, the first shot of Billy after that shows him with clear white teeth. Then they disappear, until after Winifred blows up, and Billy says "Yea" it shows him with white teeth again.
Corrected entry: When Max first hands Allison the note with his name and number on it, his name and number are spaced apart. When Allison later returns the note to Max, you can see that it is indeed a different note.
Corrected entry: The zombie gets his fingers chopped off by the motorcycle but he is never shown missing fingers at any time in the movie.
