The Mothman Prophecies

Revealing mistake: When John goes to close Gordon's eyes, as he lowers his hand, you can see him close his eyes on his own.

Audio problem: When John rips the phone out of the wall, when it hits the floor it makes a bell sound even though its a cordless phone.

Other mistake: John explains to his friend Ed that, within the last two weeks since the accident, Mary has undergone brain surgery to remove the tumor in her right temporal lobe and that she is undergoing chemotherapy. This surgery alone would necessitate shaving at least half of Mary's head, and the chemotherapy would prevent her hair from growing out again for months. But, in the immediate next scene, we see John at Mary's side as she recovers in the hospital, and her red hair with natural hairline is as full and lush as in the beginning of the film.

Trivia: There is something red in every scene.

Trivia: While "The Mothman Prophecies" is a work of sensational fiction only loosely based on a few unrelated facts, it is odd that the film makers chose to actually reduce the number of people killed in the Silver Bridge collapse. In real life, 46 people lost their lives in the Ohio River that night, while only 36 were killed in the movie.
