Bride of Chucky picture

Plot hole: In the end of the film it is heard the police want to exhume the body of Charles Lee Ray from his grave site in New Jersey. Now when Chucky and the crew get to the grave site they find and kill a coroner who is digging up the body. He is the only one there at 1am, by himself, a lonely coroner without any police officers, after all this is a police investigation and I doubt the cops would have him there alone. Then right at the end the Detective who is hunting them arrives. Now he is a cop from Lockport, about six states away. A. Why did he drive all that way to see the body? B. A cop from all the way down there shows up but no new Jersey cops are at the scene?

Halloween: H20 picture

Continuity mistake: When Jamie Lee Curtis is teaching a class, just prior to the class trip, a shot over her shoulder shows on the blackboard 'W.B. Yates'. It should be spelled 'Yeats'. In a shot a few seconds later the spelling has been corrected.

Vampires picture

Other mistake: When Daniel Baldwin carjacks the guy at the gas station (director Frank Darabont in a cameo) we can clearly see that his car is a Cadillac. However, in the end credits he is listed as "Man with Buick."

Hamster
Phantoms picture

Other mistake: When the main characters are in the motel and they hear the moth flying outside the window, Stu, the creepy deputy with the glasses, picks up a shot gun and racks a round into the chamber. In the next shot of all of people firing at the moth through the window, Stu is now holding his revolver and fires with it. When he runs of out ammo with the revolver he picks up the shotgun again and before firing racks the pump again. Since he already did that the gun should have ejected the unfired shell that was already in the chamber from earlier, but no shell is ejected.

Continuity mistake: When Vivo finds Pantucci snooping around the cargo, he throws him to the middle of the mercenaries, and they all get around him, including T. Ray who smiles at him; when T. Ray smiles at Joey he is standing up, but when he gives the first kick he is sitting down.

Ringu (1998)

Ringu picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end (DVD), when Sadako comes out of the TV, you can see where her finger extensions have been placed (you can see the join between her real finger and the fake one).

Phantasm IV: Oblivion picture

Continuity mistake: When Mike and Jodi are walking through the "deserted" town, supposedly everyone in town has been killed by The Tall Man, when the Tall Man walks down the middle of the street you can see an old lady pushing an empty shopping cart, and a car driving around a corner in the distance.

Species II picture

Factual error: During the Mars-flight, the way the spacecraft uses the rocket thrusters is unrealistic. For example when they are nearing Mars, they should be using the rockets against their movement, to slow down the speed. But in the movie they are using the rockets towards Mars.

Strangeland picture

Continuity mistake: During the scenes where Detective Mike Gage is trying to track down Captain Howdy in his car via laptop and cell phone modem, he keeps looking at a certain driveway with a dog in it. Each time they cut back to the driveway, the dog is in a different place. The newspaper is also picked up and taken away by a man, and returns several times, each time in different spatial relation to the dog.

Psycho (1998)

Psycho picture

Deliberate mistake: When the CA. trooper is at the front of her car, the Arizona license plate is shown. In 1989, Arizona began issuing a single license plate and that plate is always on the back of the vehicle. This is deliberate, as the remake follows the original movie shot by shot, and there the trooper checks the front license plate.

Dennis Gannon
Devil In the Flesh picture

Continuity mistake: First, we see Mr. Renaldi put both arms above his head while lying on the bed. Then in the next shot, he has them both down. His arm changes continue for the next two shots.

The Last Broadcast picture

Plot hole: During David Leigh's narrative about Jim's court case, you are shown a number of newspaper headlines concerning the murders. One shows a shot of Locus looking at camera, with the caption 'Did Locus see his killer?' That shot was on the missing film which was found by David Leigh AFTER the murders were forgotten. So how did the paper get the picture?
