Continuity mistake: Likewise, when Carol Anne is being sucked into the closet vortex she clearly lets go of the white wicker headboard of her bed. In the next shot, the child (actually a dummy or a stunt double) is seen sailing into the closet, grasping a sizeable section of the now broken headboard.
Continuity mistake: When they put Diane and Carol Anne into the bath tub, near the end of the film, look at Carol Anne's face. The red gunk changes in pattern every time we look at it.
Continuity mistake: When Diane sees the creature in front of the door and yells "No - don't hurt my babies!" she crosses in front of it and falls down the stairs. When she's in front of it you can easily see the creature's eyes and mouth through her, on her shirt.
Continuity mistake: When the mother falls into the muddy swimming pool, and the bodies are popping out from the ground,she was drenched and covered in mud. By the time she runs upstairs, she is almost completely dry and there is very little mud on her.
Continuity mistake: When the dog jumps in the back of the cab, he gets in the right side and Robbie is nowhere to be seen. It cuts away very briefly, and when it cuts back suddenly Robbie is very much on the right side of the seat and the dog is on the left- not enough time for them to have moved and settled in.Krista
Revealing mistake: When the chair moves across the kitchen floor, Craig T. Nelson goes to investigate it (after it has stopped moving). He goes up to the chair and flips it over. If you look closely, Craig almost hits the camera with the chair's legs. You can tell this has happened because the camera moves up very quickly and Craig looks straight at the camera crew with very big guilty eyes. This is more easily visible on the widescreen version of the film. (00:33:30)
