Best horror movie mistakes of 1995
Factual error: Fitch, who professes qualifications in biology, genetics and biochemistry, says that they made Sil female because she's a natural predator and so she'd be more docile. He should retake his finals. In every single species of predator on earth - every single one - the females are the hunters, aggressors and killers. The males may be socially dominant but they are the 'docile' ones. There are no exceptions - and no human DNA was used to create Sil - they used synthetic DNA based on the instructions transmitted to them.
Continuity mistake: In the last scene on the roof when Holly Hunter shoots the serial killer, he falls backwards. The gun is in his left hand and the path is next to his left hand. The camera then goes to the rear of Sigourney as she walks toward Holly. Only now the serial killer is on the other side of the path and the left hand holding the gun is no longer next to the path.
Other mistake: Even when not referring to his own emotions, The Collector can't say the word "love" when he is trying to seduce Jeryline at the end. He tries very hard to say it, but is simply incapable of using the word. Earlier, when The Collector was tempting Cordelia, he used the word several times without issue.
Continuity mistake: When the school janitor jumps from the roof then falls on a parked car, his head is turned to the right and it's obvious that it's a dummy. Two shots later, when Dr. Chafee puts his hand on the neck to take a pulse, the head is turned to the left and the body has changed position.
