Best horror movie factual errors of 1992
Factual error: When Mina is with Dracula within Dr. Seward's room, she is wearing a white nightgown through which, at times, you can see her tiny underwear (more visible when he confesses to be Dracula and she is upset about him having killed Lucy - turning her into a vampire), in a fashion that would not be likely to be worn by women in the late 19th century.
Factual error: When Marlene goes to the greenhouse and is killed by the falling glass, this would never have happened. It is a federal law that all greenhouses, skylights, and entry-ways are to be made of safety glass. The glass would have to have been made of either a Tempered glass, which breaks in a thousand pieces, like a car window, or Laminated glass, which cracks but does not fall apart, like a car windshield. Neither one of these glasses would have killed her. Surely, law abiding citizens like Clare and her Husband would have followed the zoning laws that came along with building their greenhouse.
Factual error: Ron Pearlman plays a state police captain named "Captain Soames". On his uniform he has both captain's bars on his shirt collar and sergeant's stripes on his upper shirt sleeves. He would not hold both ranks and would not keep the sergeant's stripes on if he had been promoted to captain. He also would have gone through the rank of lieutenant (one bar) prior to becoming a captain, so he would have had plenty of time to take the stripes off his uniform.

Factual error: When all is back to normal and Ash is back at his job at S-Mart, a witch shows up and starts trashing the place. Ash is knocked behind the sporting goods counter, where there is (of course) a cabinet containing guns. Ash then jumps up and blows the witch away, firing 37 times. He's using a .38 caliber Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with a "Trapper" loop lever. It only holds 9 rounds.
