(at around 46 mins) When Mark dangles from the hole in the floor, he's holding onto the edge with his left hand, with his right hand free. When Alice runs to pull him up, she offers her right hand, and Mark can be seen reaching to her with his right hand. In the close-up shot that follows, it's Mark's left hand that grabs hers, and at an impossible angle. (Her right palm faces the screen, the top of his left hand also faces the screen- only possible if they were facing the same direction.) when the camera shifts position once again, his right hand is still not grasping the ledge, and she's pulling him up by his left hand.

(at around 1h 7 mins) After Mark is pulled into the comic book, and the whole place collapses a drip of blood falls on his head. In reality blood isn't that thick, and after Mark checks what it is the amount of blood on his cheek changes from the closeup to the wide shot.

And the second time Freddy puts something in her mouth the amount and color changes from the closeup of Freddy to the closeup of Greta.

(at around 1h 16 mins) Near the end, when Freddy is holding Jacob's hand, you can clearly see Robert Englund's normal hand at the bottom of the glove. Freddy was completely burned so there should have been scar tissue instead of regular skin.
