Continuity mistake: When Elvira is cooking dinner for Bob, she takes the spoon out of the pot, sets the spoon aside, then says her dish looks like "cocka-doodie." When the camera cuts back to the food it looks different, and the spoon is back in the pot. When Elvira puts some spray cheese on the food, the spoon is back where she set it aside earlier.

Continuity mistake: Gonk's left ear is the one with the ring on it. When Vincent yells at Elvira for not being able to find the cookbook, Gonk growls at Vincent. For that one shot only, the ring switches ears.

The Craft (1996)

Question: In the scene where Sarah is in the bathroom during the time when her three other covenmates are torturing her, she walks by what looks like a paper towel dispenser kind of high up on the wall that has some writing on it. What do those letters mean?

Sarah Van Winkle

Chosen answer: It says "Gustav Klimt", the name of an artist in the 1800s, and the paper towel dispenser is actually one of his prints. In the shot where Robin Tunney is walking out of the shower, you can see the bottom of the painting, although the full piece is never visable.
