Curtain Call - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: When Elsa is waiting in the lobby, she's wearing a dress which shows her normal, not wooden legs. It's very apparent when she is crying on the floor.

Continuum - S2-E12

Character mistake: When Lana and Kit are speaking in the cafe, the window behind them contains a spelling mistake. The window reads "Bolyston Cafe" when it should say "Boylston Cafe." (00:31:45)

Charles (Manson) in Charge - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: Kai applies shaving soap to his whole face, including his upper lip. In the next shot, there is no soap on his upper lip and he puts it on again.

Suggested correction: Not technically a mistake; unlike regular twins, conjoined twins are always identical in appearance, contrary to what movies/TV suggest. This could easily include mole patterns.

Do you have a source to prove this?

I looked up "conjoined twins" on Google images, and there are numerous photos of conjoined twins having freckles and moles in different spots. Notably on the Hensel twins, Brittany has a mole on her chin, but Abby does not. This disproves your suggestion that conjoined twins are always identical in appearance and could have identical mole patterns.

Curtain Call - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When Paul spits on the left side of Dandy's face you see Dandy get up and wipe the right side of his face. Also it appears the blood in his nose magically disappears between shots. (00:03:15)

Edward Mordrake: Part 1 - S4-E3

Factual error: Season 4 takes place in 1952. Elsa sings Lana Del Rey's Gods and Monsters. The lyrics say "living like Jim Morrison." Jim Morrison was not famous until 1960. He was born in 1943, which would have made him only 9 at this time.

I Am Anne Frank: Part 1 - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Lana Winters imagines receiving an award for her expose while in line for her medication, her mic pack is visible as she steps up to accept it. It is not visible in the high angle long shot before she gives her speech. (00:17:15)

Forbidden Fruit - S8-E3

Factual error: All the survivors save Ms Venables and Mead die from eating apples injected with snake venom. The show is confusing venom with poison. Venom must be injected into the bloodstream to be dangerous. Eating venom is harmless to humans. Unless all of the survivors had stomach ulcers, none of them should have shown any ill effects, nor should they have died.

Edward Mordrake: Part 1 - S4-E3

Deliberate mistake: After Elsa kicks Bette and Dot off the stage, Elsa looks at the sheet of music on the stand and you see the name of the song 'Criminal' and it also states it's by Fiona Apple which is true, but this season is set in 1952, and Criminal wasn't released until 1996.

Season 1 generally

Plot hole: It's been established that if you die on the property, you remain as a ghost for all of eternity. However, in Season 8, Moira's bones are retrieved and buried in a cemetery so that her ghost can escape and join her mother. However not all the ghost's bones are buried on the property, we know for sure that the Black Dahlia was not buried on the property and it's not likely Tate, Vivian, Ben or some of the others are buried on the property as well so they should not be tied to the house.

Afterbirth - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Stacy and Miguel (the new owners of the house), are making out in the kitchen, her shirt goes from off her shoulders to back on her shoulders across several shots.

Guy

Afterbirth - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Vivien and the maid are sitting in the kitchen, one shot shows the maid from the side with her hands in front of her on the table. The shot changes and instantly her hands are holding a coffee mug in front of her lips.

Guy

Piggy Piggy - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: The people that Tate murders at school have different wound patterns. Episode 5 they say what Tate did to them, episode 6 shows the attack. Episode 5 the goth girl says Tate asked her if she believed in God before shooting her - episode 6 he asked her nothing, instead just shot her. Episode 5, the guy in the letterman jacket illustrates his wound to be a single round to the head - episode 6 he shoots the letterman with a shotgun in the chest, not a handgun to the head. Episode 5 the cheerleader shows no apparent wounds of being shot - episode 6 Tate shoots her in the face with a shotgun.

Red Dawn - S9-E5

Continuity mistake: While Brooke is on the floor being tormented by Montana, a rug next to Brooke disappears and moves to another part of the room as the scene cuts.

Mr. Jingles - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: Xavier holds his flashlight low when he turns to shine it on the camp light that just went out, but the next shows him holding the flashlight higher, and closer to his ear.

Mr. Jingles - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: After Blake says, "Gay for pay, baby.", his left hand is up by his mouth, then by his side in the next quick cut.

Scott215

Camp Redwood - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: After Trevor scans the woods with the flashlight from the porch, he lowers it to his side, but the next shot of him from the woods shows him still holding the flashlight up and his arm extended.

Camp Redwood - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: As Margaret briefs the counselors on the rules, Xavier is positioned to the right of Ray's right shoulder, but when the shot is of the back view of the group facing Margaret, Xavier is now directly behind Ray.

Camp Redwood - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: Margaret plants the axe into the chopping block, but in the next shot when she greets the new counselors, the axe is now leaning against the chopping block.

Camp Redwood - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: The view of Ed is through the right front of the van's windshield when he says, "Did you say Redwood?", then the next shot of him shows he is further away from the van and not near the windshield.

Show Stoppers - S4-E12

Trivia: They pay homage to the original 1932 movie Freaks. In Freaks, Cleopatra gets mutilated and turned into a tarred and feathered bird for visitors to gawk at in terror. Hercules gets viciously attacked under the carnival vehicle. In this episode, Stanley gets cornered by all the freaks under the carnival vehicle and gets viciously attacked and mutilated to resemble Meep (a feathered freak who was killed by the cops in an earlier episode).

Halloween: Part 1 - S1-E4

Question: One thing I do not understand is this... "if" the souls of the deceased (that die within the walls of "Murder House") are trapped there for eternity then how does the maid get to go see her mother (obviously off premises) and Tate get to meet up with Dr. Harmon for coffee for his appointment?

AmberMac420

Chosen answer: Because on Halloween, the souls of The Dead are said to roam the Earth. That includes those souls that are trapped within the walls of the "Murder House".
