When she gets back to her room to go to sleep, she checks her clock again. The time on the clock has advanced only TEN minutes. She did ALL that in only TEN minutes?

Gremlins picture

Plot hole: When Billy is talking to the Sheriff and his Deputy, he explains what the creatures are, and shows them Gizmo. The cops don't take Billy's story seriously and even mock him, even after the phone call about the Futterman's Snowplough "accident." Why didn't Billy simply tell the Sheriff about the dead Teacher or get them to call the Dr where Billy left his injured mother? The mere mention of a dead body should have to be investigated by the police, and the word of a local respected Dr should also be enough to back up Billy's story and give him the help he's need to stop the Gremlins.

The Hills Have Eyes Part II picture

Plot hole: When Rachael/Ruby is attacked by Pluto in the rafters, Cass, being blind, is able to hear her cry out. When she does, Cass calls out to her by saying "Ruby." However it was a couple scenes later when Rachael tells everyone that she is really Ruby. Cass is surprised to hear this. Therefore, not knowing that Rachael was really Ruby, she should have called out "Rachael" instead of "Ruby" when she was attacked because she didn't know the truth by then.
