Audio/visual unsynchronised 

For portions of Joan's instructions to Annie, as Annie is leaving Joan's apartment, the lips don't match the words, notably the comment that the husband and brother need to be 'in the house.'

While the son is at a party, he is seen smoking a water pipe (bong). This bong has multiple issues. The chamber is already filled with smoke as he lights it. His finger is nowhere near the usual location of the 'carb'. As he inhales, the smoke doesn't leave the tube into his lungs. We hear a bubbling sound (and see the water bubbling) AFTER the bowl has been removed. The bubbling sound happens while the user is lighting and inhaling to fill the chamber with smoke. We should have only heard an inhaling sound at that point.

Character error 

Steve's accent changes between American and Irish throughout the movie. In particular his Irish accent stands out when he is on the phone to Annie or when he is yelling. However, this is not necessarily a mistake, given that the movie never specifies the character's nationality. Steve may very well be an Irishman who's been living in America for a long time. Actor Gabriel Byrne has successfully concealed his Irish accent on multiple films before this one.

Continuity 

When Joan writes down her phone number, she folds the piece of paper before giving it to Annie. Later, when Annie looks at this paper in her workshop, there is no crease, indicating that the paper was never folded.

When Annie begins the seance with Peter and Steve, the candle on the table isn't lit but once the camera cuts away and comes back to the table, the candle is now lit with the flame clearly visible.

In the opening graphic of Ellen's obituary, her death is noted as taking place in early April. When Annie meets Joan, Joan says a few months have passed. Then we are shown the Seance flyer with a date of April 18.

Revealing mistakes 

In a close-up of Annie working on her dioramas, the lace strip on the hairline of her wig is clearly visible.

Charlie does not stick her head further out the car window than the sideview mirror, yet we hear the sound of the telephone pole colliding only with Charlie, and not with the mirror as well. In reality, driving so close to the telephone pole would result in the sound of the pole hitting the sideview mirror, and then the mirror hitting the car, before hitting Charlie. This is a very distracting mistake in what was supposed to be a key scene.
