The hair on the werewolf's face. Some tight shots on the eyes show nothing but hair, but other shots show the werewolf's dark skin with hair further away.
The light from the fireplace in the film's ending. When the power goes out the room is dark, despite a fireplace having been lit. After the werewolf makes his entry- the room is fully lit again with the fireplace.
When Uncle Red is revealing the race car wheelchair to Marty, Marty's hair changes shape back and forth between shots.
A shopkeeper places a sign in his window announcing the availability of Remington shotguns in "single action" and "double action." Shotguns may be either single or double barrel, but they are never described as single or double action. Only revolvers and certain auto pistols are described in this way.
The newspaper date showed Friday, September 8, 1980. That date actually fell on a Monday.
The narrator of the movie says that the full moon in 1976 fell on October 31. This is incorrect as the moon was just past half on October 31, 1976. She also states that the moon had not set yet and that it was already 3:00 AM. Moonset for October 31, 1976, was at 1:42 AM.
When the townsfolk are in the woods hunting for the werewolf, they get attacked. Mr. Aspinall gets attacked and is drug down into the fog. When he comes up again, it is obviously a mannequins head that looks like half the face is missing to depict the werewolf's damage to him.
When Brady is flying his kite, a string can be seen above the kite holding it in place.
When Gary Busey is protecting himself from the werewolf with a crow bar, the bar bends in half. (It's a fire poker, not a crowbar.)
In the scene where the boys are successfully flying kites, not a single twig is moving on any of the trees suggesting that there is no wind at all.
When Jane goes into Reverend Lowe's garage, among the large pile of empty soda containers are some Diet Coke cans. Diet Coke did not exist in 1976 (the year in which the movie is set).
When the townsmen are reading a newspaper, the date on the paper says 1980. The film takes place in 1976.
The film is set in 1976. In various parts of the film, you can see automobiles from the 1980s.
When Arnie Westrum is killed at the first of the movie, the coroner concludes that he got drunk and fell asleep on the tracks; implying that a train took his head off. However, Arnie's track cart is parked only a few yards away on the same tracks that he supposedly died on and couldn't have died because of a train accident without causing a major accident. The cart, body, and tracks are all clearly visible.
Mr. Fairton was a witness to the massacre of the lynch mob in the swamp. He saw people being tossed around and ripped apart by something not human. He even saw the large, hairy claws ripping Mr. Aspinall's face apart. But still, people think it's an ordinary psycho killer when he can verify that it's not human. The only other time he's shown, he's acting calmly as if nothing ever happened. At the very least, he'd be scared enough to move or stay indoors.
The movie does not explain how Jane as the narrator knows about events that either she was not present for or had no way of knowing happened (such as Reverend Lowe's dream).
In the scene right after Marty shoots the werewolf in the eye and rides back to his house, you can very obviously see his legs moving when he climbs from his window to his bed, even though he is supposed to be paralyzed from the waist down.
