Best horror TV mistakes of all time

Hell House - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When Dean, Sam, Ed and Harry have just shot Mordechai, the cameraman's arm is visible on the right-hand side of the screen.

Curtains - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the camera pans out to see the dome now covered in a layer of black. Outside of the dome you can see nice green fields, a small forest area, little houses and everything looks rosy. However a few episodes back the military launched a MOAB (mother of all bombs) and and the surrounding area was wiped out completely.

Bad Blood - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 1-13 "Mourning After": The blood Ashe smears on her face changes its pattern and consistency several times as the shots change.

Welcome to the Tombs - S3-E16

Factual error: When Rick has given Andrea his revolver to end her life, he leaves the room with the others to leave Andrea and Michonne alone. The next thing you see is Rick, Tyrese and Daryl waiting outside the room. You hear the gun go off and then you hear a tinkle as a shell casing hits the floor (noticeably "lighter" than the sound the revolver would make when dropped). Revolvers do not eject a shell casing.

Escape Clause - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Walter crumples the prescription slip and tosses it onto the bed - but in the next shot, it has disappeared.

Jean G

Heads Of Beef / Klub Katz - S1-E11

Factual error: In "Klub Katz" the captian yells "Iceburg, Iceburg, on the starboard side." But when you see the iceburg and the ship, the iceburg was about to hit the bow of the ship.

Fringe (2008)

And Those We Left Behind - S4-E6

Plot hole: The very ending scene where Peter (in this version died in the ice as a boy so Walter's wife never met him) takes off some of the dust covers then picks up a toy airplane. The toy airplane he got as a child from ... Walter's wife when she was trying to placate him in an earlier episode for trying to run "home". This toy airplane wouldn't have been his as a child in this version of the universe.

Forward into the Past - S2-E4

Factual error: Nick tells fellow vampire Aristotle, "You still owe me for that time at the Battle of Hastings." Nick was brought across in 1228, or so the intro told us every week. The Battle of Hastings, as any British school kid knows, was fought in 1066, over 100 years before Nick's mortal birth.

Jean G

A Death in the Family - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: The shots of Doran from his left rear shows him a couple feet away from the wall while frontal shots show him backed up against the wall.

Hex (2004)

The Story Begins - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Cassie is in the headmaster's office, her red pencil case keeps changing position from being held up clutched to her chest with her folder, to being in her lap.

Tanith

Night Of The Living Dummy II - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After Slappy's head is smashed off, the position of the broken face on the floor changes.

Show generally

Audio problem: 1897: Quentin challenges Barnabas by pulling a decorative sword from a wall display and pointing it at his throat. Unfortunately, the display wasn't all that well attached to the set wall. Though the camera pans away, you can hear a loud clunk as the piece falls, followed by the loud crash of shattering glass as it strikes and breaks a table lamp. You can also see the actors struggling very hard to keep straight faces as they continue with their lines.

Chopper - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: The lit flashlight dropped on the floor by the soon-to-be beheaded victim disappears in subsequent shots.

Episode Twenty - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Audrey enters her father's office to find him in the middle of his Civil War recreation, a boom mic dips into the shot over their heads.

Cubs Fan

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When they first bring the girl to the house with the storm and lay her on the bead the there candles next to her. First the tallest one blows out then the middle one blow out then the shot changes and the middle candle blows out again.

Cold Ground - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Sookie is eating Adele's pie, the amount of pie on the fork keeps changing between shots.

Kylantha

Pineapple Chunks - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mike is reflected many times in people's sunglasses, especially Kylie's.

Haven (2010)

301 - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Duke is wearing an extra shirt, and his hair is longer then it was, despite continuing the scene from the end of season 2.

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Educated characters, including an eminent scholar, continually translate 'Lupus Dei' as 'Hound of God'. Even someone with the most basic Latin would know it actually means 'Wolf of God'.

Necrothesp

Anarchy in Royston Vasey - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Tubbs is urinating into the petrol tank, as Steve Pemberton moves away, you see a hand that was holding the can of 'urine' move out of sight behind the car.

Family Values - S7-E1

Revealing mistake: The eyes of the actor playing Gideon the robot can be seen through the eye slits of the robot mask in some shots.

Scott215

The Human Factor - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the lab equipment shorts out after the earthquake, the unconscious Major Brothers is lying with his head propped up against the wall. But when Hamilton reaches him in the next shot, he's suddenly lying flat and is nowhere near the wall.

Jean G

Cold Hard Truth - S3-E4

Factual error: When Johnny and Bruce are riding in the truck, listening to the 'shock jock', Bruce turns off the radio by turning the volume control on the left side of the radio. Johnny says he wants to hear it and turns the radio back on by turning the knob on the right, which is the tuning dial.

Check-Out - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Norman visits Caleb at the motel on his own, after hearing Norma and Dylan argue, he gets into an argument with Caleb. Norman then pulls a knife out high above his head, at which point you see it is a prop/rubber type knife. The handle aimed at Caleb but the force Freddie Highmore has used to pull the knife up and back causes the blade to bend and aim toward the ceiling.

So Close, Yet So Far - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Alicia is cleaning up Nick's vomit, she removes her gloves. When the angle changes, she starts removing them again.

Friday Night Bites - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode when Damon and Caroline sleep together Caroline's bra is dark pink, in this one when she wakes up her bra is blue.

I Am Anne Frank: Part 1 - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Lana Winters imagines receiving an award for her expose while in line for her medication, her mic pack is visible as she steps up to accept it. It is not visible in the high angle long shot before she gives her speech.

Foster

Chapter Eight: The Upside Down - S1-E8

Factual error: When Nancy shoots the creature the second time, she fires at least 8 shots from a 6-shot revolver without reloading. And that's assuming she reloaded after firing 3 shots at the creature the first time, even though the situation made it seem unlikely.

Bishop73

Scream (2015)

Revelations - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Kieran looks at his phone in the car, the image of Emma calling him is upside down. The image was added after the filming was done.
