The Howling

Other mistake: At the end after the barn fire, Marcia is at a tavern, ordering a rare steak. While it is believable that she escaped the barn fire, it is unbelievable that she is in the tavern wearing the same dress and necklace she wore prior to her transformation in the barn. All of her attire would have been rended in the transformation and lost in the fire. Unless her wardrobe consists of duplicates of the same clothing.

Continuity mistake: After Karen has a nightmare on the couch, Bill comes in and comforts her. Karen's grip on Bill's shoulders changes between shots. The position of her head changes too. (00:13:30)
