Deep Blue Sea picture

Factual error: Near the beginning when the boat pulls up and the guy on the boat tells the blond convict he's got a beauty 13 foot "Tiger shark" that's up in some sort of sling, the so called tiger shark is actually the same robot mako shark from the rest of the movie, just with stripes on it. Tiger sharks have a blunt rounded nose, not a pointed one like a great white. (00:07:35)

End of Days picture

Factual error: The priest says that St. John saw the number 666 in his vision, but it was actually 999 inverted. I'm not sure, but I don't believe St. John read modern Arabic numerals like we do. Didn't he read Roman numerals? I think if St. John saw the number 666, it would actually be DCLXVI. (01:05:40)

The Mummy picture

House on Haunted Hill picture

Factual error: In the scene where the cast find the guns in the tiny coffins, they mention that it is not possible to tell if they are loaded because the clips are welded. Being semi-automatic pistols, simply pulling back the slide & ejecting the first round would have easily determined whether live or blank rounds had been loaded.

Factual error: When Sheriff Emmett Kimsey (Lou Diamond Phillips) and Dr. Sheila Casper (Dina Meyer) enter the mine shaft and fall down into the cavern full of guano, they light a flare. The flame would have caused the fumes to ignite.

Silent Predators picture

Factual error: Whenever one or more of the mutated, super venomous snakes attack someone, you can hear a rattling sound because they evolved from rattle snakes. However, it frequently shows the tips of the snakes tails, and they are completely bare. How can they constantly make that noise if they don't have rattles?
