Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the souls are coming out of Freddy's chest, in the first close-up on the bottom left of the screen you can see a man's hand holding a black stick to manuoever the little arms. It's real fast but noticable on standard play.

Revealing mistake: After her brother's death, there is a scene in which Alice starts practicing with her brother's nun-chuks. They never show the real actress doing the tricks; instead, they cut to an angle from behind her and show a double who has darker, shorter hair than the real actress and is a bit bigger.

Continuity mistake: When Dan is wheeled into the operating room, we hear a respirator machine going in the background. Yet he's fully awake and not hooked up to any breathing equipment when he's being brought in. A machine would not be going like that unless the patient was fully under and intubated.

Continuity mistake: When Kincaid's dog is getting ready to pee it has its tail between its legs. When it cuts to the fake dog peeing flames, the tail is standing up.

Other mistake: The 3rd movie takes place 5 years after the original, since Kristen is still in high school this one can't take place too long after that. How does Nancy's house get so run down in only 5 or 6 years?
