Let the Right One In

Continuity mistake: When Oskar shows his Rubik's Cube to Eli and explains how it works, one side is all white except one square, which differs from being red vs. blue between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Oskar intercepts Lacke's plan to kill Eli in the bathtub, Eli kills Lacke and drinks some of his blood, leaving some blood on her lips. She then kisses Oskar, which in turn leaves some blood on his lips. In the cut right after that the blood is gone from his lips. Later on it appears again, when he tastes it with his tongue.

Plot hole: After Eli's guardian is hospitalised for acid-burning his face, Eli hears on the radio that they can't ID him because of his facial wounds. When we see him in the hospital however, only half his face is injured, the other half is fine which would make a mirror composite easy for lab techs.
