The Texas Chainsaw Massacre mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Sheriff is wrapping the suicide victim's body, he has a roll of plastic wrap. He is shown with the box, then as he begins to wrap the head, he has just the roll, and in the next shot it is back in the box again. He presumably would have left it out of the box the entire time, since the box would only get in the way of trying to wrap the body. (00:33:00)

Continuity mistake: The blood stain on the rear window of the van is changing its size throughout the movie. One shot/scene, there is almost no blood around the hole, next shot/scene almost whole window is covered with blood. It happens before they have cleaned the van.

Factual error: This movie states that it is during the year 1973, yet in the beginning of the movie when they are driving in the van they are listening to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This song was not released publicly until 1974. (00:03:10)
