Hide and Seek

Plot hole: In the end, when Charlie is advancing on Emily while turning his light on and off, the final time he turns it on, Kathrine is in front of Emily. How could she get there so fast without being heard? There's at least 4-5 inches of water that would make sneaking very hard.

Continuity mistake: When Emily is on the merry-go-round, she has permanent front teeth, but later in the film she still has baby teeth.

Continuity mistake: When David is writing about Emily needing more time, etc. you see three lines in the close-up of him writing. When he picks up his hand and notices the spot on his palm there are 5 lines of writing on the paper. (00:17:45)

Trivia: During the opening credits, there are hidden messages within the names of the people who worked on the production, which are bolded out in red within the person's name. There are five of them, the words 'man', 'cat', 'see', 'red', and 'me'. All these have relevance to the plot.

Trivia: The tagline is "Come out, come out wherever you are." This is (arguably) also De Niro's most famous line from Cape Fear.

Question: Would it be possible for someone to explain something to me? What is the significance of the time 2:06? Obviously it's when David wakes up in the middle of the night, but why?

Answer: That is the time the he supposedly woke up to find his wife dead in the beginning of the movie, so now he has nightmares and wakes up at the exact same time.

Question: During the climax, as Charlie is walking down the hall, he is saying something that sounds like quiet chanting. This is after he has finished singing 'Daddy's gonna buy you a Mockingbird'. Does anyone know what he's saying?

Answer: He keeps singing "mockingbird" over and over, but it is more of a mumbling by this point. Turn on the subtitles and you can see this.
