Sacha
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the souls are coming out of Freddy's chest, in the first close-up on the bottom left of the screen you can see a man's hand holding a black stick to manuoever the little arms. It's real fast but noticable on standard play.

Hamster
Beetlejuice picture

Continuity mistake: When the fly lands in the cemetery, the ground is some sort of spiked rubber. When the camera is flying in, we see the cemetery is actually dirt and sand glued to the board.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II picture

Revealing mistake: Any time when the two girls are in hell's corridors and running around, you see these corridors as stone walls, yet whenever they back up against one of these walls, you can clearly see they are merely rubber sheeting overlayed on a framework as the rubber sheeting bends and contracts very clearly.

Big (1988)

Big picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tom Hanks goes back to his mother's house when he's "BIG", he tries to convince his mother it's him by telling her his birthday: November 3rd. However, in the scene (with John Heard and Elizabeth Perkins) showing the milk carton of Tom Hanks "missing" as a young boy, his d.o.b. is shown as 1/20/75.

Vibes (1988)

Vibes picture

Factual error: At the end, when Cyndi Lauper touches the glowing pyramid, goes into a trance, and starts translating the inscription, Jeff Goldblum pulls her off and she doesn't finish it. One of the bad guys says that what Cyndi already said will be enough to help him decode the rest and that it's just a matter of "cartography" now. He should have said "cryptography" (skill of decoding secret writings) and not "cartography" (which has to do with making maps).

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the storm, the ship moves in the sand. Look at its front and you'll be able to see a wire that moves the ship. It's very visible.
