Pet Sematary

Revealing mistake: When the housekeeper hangs herself, you can tell the rope isn`t even around her neck. It is obviously connected to a harness around her torso.

Revealing mistake: When Lewis is trying to get Gage off him, as he's struggling with the scalpel, you can plainly see its not really Gage but a dummy made to look like him. Looks like a doll.

Revealing mistake: When Lewis gets out of the tub and has a towel around him, you can see he has underwear on.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Louis goes to give Gage the shot if you look closely you can see that the needle doesn't leave a puncture mark.

Continuity mistake: There is no knife on the table when the wife enters the kitchen at the very end, however, she walks straight to Louis, hugs him and then magically a knife appears at the edge of the table which she picks up and uses to stab him (implied - the movie actually ends at that point).

Question: Why did Louis kill Church at the end? He only planned on killing Gage if he came back like Timmy Baterman did, and he could have just walked in after distracting Church with the meat.

Chosen answer: Church's behavior had changed after being buried. He was now violent (and working with Gage) and needed to be put down before killing anyone.
