At the beginning of the film, a young Alan Hakman looks at the body of a boy who has fallen from a great height, lying in a puddle of blood. Later in the film, we revisit this scene in a flashback and learn that the puddle is actually a can of red paint that Hakman has knocked over. But in the first scene, the puddle is already there before Hakman approaches the body, and we never see him knock over the paint.
