The People Under the Stairs picture

Popcorn picture

Plot hole: When Toby is checking everyone to make sure their costumes work, wheelchair-bound Bud is shown standing in a coffin-fixture. Since he was in the coffin costume, there was nothing there to be "holding" the character in a standing position, and he was obviously not in his wheelchair, as he is at standing height with everyone else.

Cape Fear picture

Plot hole: Cady's plan to get revenge on Bowden includes raping and assaulting Lori. This part of the plan, however, hinges on Lori not reporting Cady to the police, which he had no way of knowing that she wouldn't. If she reported him, the investigation would have created huge problems for Cady. He bit off a chunk of her face, so the wound could have been matched to his teeth, as well the chunk of skin he bit off and spit out most likely would have had traces of his saliva on it. Not to mention evidence that could have been gathered from a rape kit and eyewitnesses that could have placed Cady at the bar with Lori beforehand (the bartender, for example). In all likelihood, he would have been arrested, tried and convicted. Lucky for him, Lori was too ashamed to report the incident.

Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare picture

Plot hole: The pipe bomb that Maggie uses to kill Freddy is the same one that was found in Spencer's room earlier in the film. It's already been established that Freddy was erasing the people he's been killing from existence, so that pipe bomb wouldn't be there to use on Freddy.
