Other mistake: The DVD release was created with a "pseudo widescreen" as various scenes cut off major action. The most obvious is in the beginning of the film when the main character meets the crazy girl. Her head is framed bottom right but the widescreen completely cuts off the crazy girl's head. This can be explained by the enormous aspect ratio of the original film, which is bigger than standard (USA) widescreen, that or a bad transfer.manthabeat
Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie, Cottonmouth Joe's horse changes from a tan Arabian to a black Clydesdale during attack sequences.
Deliberate mistake: When Brody confronts and then flees from the Headless Horseman, the horses never break into full gallop (it's little more than a stiff-legged canter), which is odd for a life-and-death chase with the bloodthirsty Headless Horseman in murderous pursuit. This was probably done on purpose, for safety reasons, since the actor playing Brody was performing his own stunt riding at night. To cinch the illusion of a real chase, audio was added of a 4-beat gallop.Charles Austin Miller
