After Hedra kills Graham (or rather, thinks she has killed him), she comes back to Allison's apartment, and takes a shower. After the shower, she wraps herself into a large bath towel and goes into her bedroom, where Allison follows her. But, suddenly, about one second after she has entered her room, we discover Hedra wearing a night shirt and a sweater. Apparently Hedra is a better quick-change artist than the world-famous Arturo Brachetti.

Factual errors 

On Allison's pay record on the computer, the pay dates are stated as 1st and 15th August 1991. Mitch states that the 15th pay is overdue and it is a Friday. Both of those days actually fell on a Thursday.

Revealing mistakes 

As Allison falls to her knees to vomit in the bathroom, the toilet rocks noticeably as she grabs it, showing that it is a prop rather than a correctly installed fixture.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

After Hedy tied up Allie and Hedy leaves for the bank, Allie turns up her TV to alert the neighbors as a call for help. One neighbor opens his door and gets the landlord, all while Hedy is out. The neighbor and the landlord are at Allie's door, the landlord fumbling through the keys, yet Hedy comes all the way from the bank, walks back to the apartment building, waits for the elevator and takes the elevator up 12 floors, and the landlord is still trying to find the right key to open Allie's door.

When Allison is strangled in the elevator, there is a small hole in her shirt where she was shot a couple minutes earlier, but no bloodstain. However a few minutes later a bloodstain appears and her arm is fully functional to fight Hedy.

Plot holes 

Apparently, the huge NY apartment complex where Allie lives has only four tenants: Allie, Graham, the landlord and the neighbor who brought the landlord down to open Allie's door when she turned the TV up too loud as a call for help after Hedy had tied her up. Gunshots, broken items thrown about, violent struggles - all were not loud enough for the one neighbor to complain, but they do complain about a rock music video. No other tenants are seen in this highly desirable section of the city in which to live, and the building looks all but abandoned. Additionally, the ventilation system that Graham (Allie's upstairs neighbor) pointed out carried sound so well did nothing to alert other neighbors that perhaps somebody should call the police.

Revealing mistakes 

After Allie kills Heddy, she reaches down to close Heddy's eyelids with her hand. As Allie does this, Heddy's eyes close on their own.
