The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Grace notices the doorknob of the interrogation room unlock itself, she walks over and turns the handle to the right. But in the next shot the door opens to the opposite way it should have, judging by the direction she turned the handle. (00:35:40)

The Hitcher (2007)

Revealing mistake: When Jim and Grace are driving along in the stolen sheriff car, away from all the police cars and Ryder, the car's back window is shot and completely shatters and fragments. Yet in a following shot we see Jim look into the rearview mirror, and he gets a clear view of behind. The back window was shattered and cracked however, so he shouldn't have got that nice clear view.

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When we see the dead bodies of Harlan and the policeman laying in the office as Lt. Esteridge is looking at them, you can clearly see the "dead bodies" breathing. (00:40:50)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: From just after Ryder hits the windshield and is being kicked out of the car by Jim, to when we see him laying on the road, the size and position of the cut on his forehead (that he got from slamming into the windshield), changes. (00:16:10 - 00:18:00)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Jim is sitting in the back with the father of the family that Ryder murdered, the father is dying from his stab wound. During the entire scene, the amount of blood on his chin keeps decreasing then increasing back and forth, and the pattern of it keeps differing as well. (00:27:30)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Jim and Grace are in the petrol station, while Grace is using the bathroom, Jim is talking to the clerk. During the whole scene, the dampness of his tee-shirt keeps changing. In some shots it is completely wet, while in others the shirt only has damp patches. (00:08:45)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: Jim wakes up after his nightmare, sitting in the front seat of his car. In the first shot the wing mirror on his side is positioned perfectly straight. In the very next shot though, the mirror is suddenly angled upwards at the sky. (00:19:20)

Continuity mistake: When Jim is outside the petrol station standing by his car, he is eating a hotdog. In the first shot he takes a big bite and there is just a small piece left. In the next shot when he takes a second bite, the remaining hotdog is now bigger than previously. (00:09:45)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Grace runs into the diner bathroom, she pulls out several paper towels from the dispenser. After she has grabbed a handful you can see that half a paper towel is visible sticking out of the dispenser. In the next shot the paper has vanished and no towels are visible. (00:30:05)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: After Ryder has been kicked out of the car, in the shot as he rolls to the ground in the background you can see the car driving off - and you can see Grace grabbing the door to close it. But in the next interior shot, Grace is still in the backseat and she then proceeds to climb into the front seat and close the door, again. (00:16:30)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: When Jim and Grace start their car journey, Grace needs to go to the bathroom. During the conversation, as the shots change the position of the watch on Jim's wrist keeps changing, as does his head position (either looking at the road or at Grace.) (00:02:15)

The Hitcher (2007)

Factual error: When Jim is driving the car and slams on the breaks just before hitting Ryder, the car is thrown forward - during all these scenes, although it is very rainy and windy, the raindrops run down the windshield as if the car is stationary. If the car was driving at a very fast speed and it is windy, the raindrops should be blown upwards on the windshield.

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: As Ryder is grabbing Grace by the face and pointing his knife into her cheek, during the whole scene as this continues, Grace's hair is repeatedly either covering her face or is pulled back under Ryder's hand. (00:15:10)

The Hitcher (2007)

Continuity mistake: At the start when Grace is running across the campus to Jim, the items she's holding rearrange in her arms between shots (note the grey blanket which is over her left arm, then under her right.) (00:01:30)

The Hitcher (2007)

Factual error: There are two instances when Jim and Grace are not wearing seat belts and are involved in big car accident scenes, but don't even fly forward from their seat an inch. The first is when Jim slams the brakes on and sends Ryder headfirst into the windshield. The second is when their car goes flying off the side of the road after dodging the lorry. (00:16:00 - 00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: When Grace is getting changed in the car, she pulls on a pair of jeans and then pulls her blue shirt off over her head. In the first shot she is pulling it over her left side of her head. In the next shot she is pulling it off over the right side. (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: As Jim and Grace are driving down the road, a dragonfly splatters onto their windshield. Between shots the size and shape of the splatter changes, and continues to as Jim attempt to wash it off with a bottle of water. (00:03:35)

Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode when it shows Burke laying on the floor after being shot, there is a very large pool of blood with his glasses right next to the blood. But in the next shot there is no pool of blood anymore but it returns in the next. Additionally, the pair of glasses change position. (00:00:05)
