Continuity mistake: When Buddy gets on the radio to the marked cruiser to close off the bridge, the radio is in his right hand, yet the next shot while he is still talking shows his right hand on the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene with the kids in the street, they show Roy Schneider's car pass the kids who are scrambling to the sidewalk. From the far end of the street they show the cop killer's car, just as it begins to turn off the street. In the background, the kids are in the street, but Roy's car is not seen on the street. The car should have been on the close side of the kids.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the car chase after Buddy crashes into the back of the trailer, the truck driver comes to help him out of the car. In the first shot Buddy is stepping up on the driver's door as the driver helps him, but in the next shot he simply walks forward away from the car as the driver brushes glass off him. He never stepped down from the door to the ground.

Continuity mistake: As Tony LoBianco is approaching Richard Lynch near the water Lynch sticks his hatchet in a wooden post at shoulder level. After their conversation as LoBianco is walking away, Lynch grabs the hatchet which is now stuck in something at his waist level. He made no attempt during the conversation to move the hatchet.

Revealing mistake: When the Grand Ville turns onto the street where the children are playing, it clips a parked car as it makes the turn. This is the same car that later gets its driver's door ripped off by the Grand Ville just before the police give chase. It was repainted red for the second scene, but note the same dent in the right fender as before.
