Audio problem: When the Scarecrow says "You see, it's very tedious being stuck up here all day long with a pole up your back," his mouth is saying something else. (00:33:50)

Continuity mistake: When Nancy is by the door, listening to the racket going on whilst Tina's being killed, her boyfriend sneaks up on her, and she says "Oh my God. You scared me." and she grabs her cheek with her hand, and starts to brush her forehead. But in the consecutive shot her hand's down by the wall. (00:17:20)

Audio problem: Nancy is watching 'The Evil Dead' in order to stay awake, but the audio of the film heard doesn't match with what scene is playing on the TV. (00:33:10)

Visible crew/equipment: Right at the end of the film, when Nancy's mother is pulled through the front door window by Freddy, you can easily tell it's a dummy! (01:25:10)

Labyrinth (1986)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah first sits by the worm, and the worm says "'Allo" you can see that all the bricks of the wall are the same dark brown colour. But a bit later in one wide shot when he says "Yeah at's right" the brick behind the worm has changed to a dark yellow colour. (00:19:30)

Continuity mistake: Just after Hoggle pulled Sarah up, away from the Fireys he is standing by the rope he used to pull her up. In one shot as Hoggle says "Down, go away" the rope is hanging down off the ledge, but in the next shot, all the rope is pulled up, away from the ledge, and is in one big heap. (00:52:30)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is running, just before she reaches the pond Hoggle is peeing in, you get a wide shot of her running. You can see that the Fairy spray beside Hoggle's feet is not there at that point, but appears a few shots later. (00:14:25)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is telling the story to Toby, she stands in front of the mirror, and puts Toby's stripy hat on. In one shot, she pulls it to the back of her head, but in the next shot, it's pulled down on her head, as normal. (00:07:40)

Labyrinth (1986)

Revealing mistake: When in the oubliette, Hoggle lights one candle, and it's flame seems to be able to light up the whole of the oubliette very brightly, much like studio lighting. (00:21:25)

Continuity mistake: Through the song "Chilly Down," a tree branch is seen, as one of the Fireys hangs on it. This branch is short in close ups, but much longer in wide shots. (00:49:10)

Visible crew/equipment: While falling through the well of hands that lead to the oubliette, wires are visible attached to Sarah. Mostly noticeably when one hand says "Would you like us to let go?" and as she is dropped, wires are seen attached to her arms. (00:27:50)

Labyrinth (1986)

Continuity mistake: As Hoggle pushes the head of the big metallic robot off, it lands close to the left foot of the robot. But when the goblin is thrown out of the robot, the metal head is now by the right foot, nearer to the spikes. (01:13:55)

Trivia: This is only on the DVD. As Hoggle walks off saying "There's one thing for sure, she'll never get through the labyrinth" look at the top left corner of the screen and you'll see the face of Jareth (David Bowie.) You see his face again, when Sarah and friends are walking through the forest, and Sir Didymus says "We should reach the castle well before day." Look at a tree to the right of the screen and you'll see the face.
