Dellamorte Dellamore picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Francesco and 'she' are in the cemetery together and the little blue flame-beings gather around to watch them, you can see the wires they're suspended on several times. This is most apparent when Francesco sees the first one (moments before seeing 'she' at the fountain) and also just before they are all frightened away.

The Shadow picture

Continuity mistake: In the water tank sequence Cranston dives to the bullet holes to get air. When he dives down there is a camera shot looking up at him from the bottom of the tank showing that there is plenty of air left at the top, no doubt left there so that the actor would not drown. And; for the sealed tank to fill completely there must have been a way for air to escape rapidly from the top. When the tank was full water kept pouring in and would have escaped the same way. When Margo arrives there is no water coming off the top of the tank.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein picture

Audio problem: When the man with the peg leg is trying to resist getting a shot of anti-smallpox serum from Professor Waldman, he yells, "You're not sticking that in me. You're not sticking that in me." But if you look closely, you can see that his lips are not moving.

Leprechaun 2 picture

Continuity mistake: When the Leprechaun is telling his slave who tried to run away that it was his 1000th birthday. The scene is set a very long time before the first film, but in the first film he tells the cop that he is 600 years old.

William Bergquist
Scanner Cop picture

Plot hole: The reason given for the cop having psychic powers is that he has a well-developed hypothalamus - but that is the part of the brain responsible for homeostasis (maintaining a constant internal environment for the body). So even if you had a particularly well-developed one, you might sweat more when you get hot but how could it make you psychic?

Visible crew/equipment: You can see the strings on Pumpkinhead when they are killing him at the end.
