The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Factual error: This movie states that it is during the year 1973, yet in the beginning of the movie when they are driving in the van they are listening to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This song was not released publicly until 1974. (00:03:10)

Continuity mistake: When the girl shoots herself her body is still sitting upright in the backseat, but when the van hits a bump in the road and the body falls onto its side. When the van stops in the next shot the body is sitting back up again without anyone moving it.

Continuity mistake: When Erin and Pepper are trying to hotwire the van, the window is rolled down. After Erin starts the van and twists the wires together, the window is rolled up.
