Revealing mistake: When the mother gets into an accident after her tire blows, the ghost shows up. It is floating above her car. Notice the seam where the ghost is on the car. When the scene shakes slightly, the ghost shakes too indicating it was a poorly superimposed shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Louis goes to dig up Gage's body, the grave is covered with dozens of white flowers. A police car drives up with the lights on and Louis turns to look; after Pascow warns Louis not to cross the barrier because the earth is sour, then the camera cuts back to Louis, and the flowers are gone.

Question: Why is sematary misspelled?

Answer: Because in the book, the sign at the entrance to the "Pet Semetary" was written by some anonymous child. Clearly he/she couldn't spell that well yet.
