Best horror movie mistakes of 2002

The Ring picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the main character is in the library on the internet, she goes to a couple of websites. When the shot shows the URL up top, it is C:\windows98\mydocuments\etc.html. Instead of actually searching on the web they used a premade html page and accessed it from their computer. It's simple enough to just not display the address bar in your browser, so I don't know why they let this one slip through...

Cabin Fever picture

Revealing mistake: When Bert is running in the woods, away from the local guys, he rubs blood on a tree to make them believe he ran a certain way. Look close, the tree already has red tint on it probably from previous takes that didn't wash off.

Halloween: Resurrection picture

Other mistake: After Michael kills Laurie at the beginning, he hands the knife to the inmate with the clown mask. The next kill is the cameraman for which he uses the tripod ends. A few scenes later they show Michael standing holding a knife with fresh blood on it. He hasn't killed anybody with this knife yet so where did the blood come from?

Ghost Ship picture

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning and especially at the end, Julianna Margulies spends extensive time in the ocean, wearing nothing but cargo pants and a T-shirt. Considering the movie takes place just off the Bering Strait, wouldn't she have quickly frozen to death?

Resident Evil picture
Resident Evil mistake picture

Other mistake: Near the beginning of the movie, Milla Jovovich reads a note that has been left on the desk. She didn't write it, as they demonstrate in the film. However, when they do show the person who wrote the note composing it, the handwriting is different from that in the note from the earlier scene.

Eight Legged Freaks picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the townspeople are fleeing to the mall there is a shot of the Deputy driving the car. You can see the top left hand corner of the windshield is covered in green goo, but when you see them parking the windscreen is completely clean.

Blade II picture

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film, after Snipes beats the crap out of a lot of vampires, Whistler throws Blade's sunglasses to him. They show him throw them in one shot, then in the next shot they show Snipes catching them. But look in the background at Whistler, he doesn't have the glasses, but is moving his arm like he is throwing them. The glasses must have been computer animated, and bad editing contributed to this mistake.

Continuity mistake: The chain and collar vanishes from Mailer's neck as he runs into the mansion.

Deathwatch picture

Factual error: The rifles the British soldiers carried in the film were Lee Enfield rifle No.4's, these did not go into production until WW2. They should have been using an earlier version of the Lee Enfield rifle.

May picture

Factual error: When May cuts her eye out with the scissors at the end of the movie, the fake eyeball used for the effect is perfectly round. A human eyeball is far from being perfectly round.

Shark Attack 3: Megalodon picture

Revealing mistake: When the megalodon attacks the yacht the party goers jump off the yacht, and some of them reach the large round safety raft. To the raft's right, there is a visible yellow line attached to it so it doesn't drift away for the shots.

My Little Eye picture

Revealing mistake: When Charlie is writing her letter we can see it through a hidden camera in the pen she is using. By watching the angle on how the camera would be attached to the pen we know that she would have seen the camera. Also her hand would be blocking the camera view, so we shouldn't be able to see anything at all.

xx:xx:xx

Mortug

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, when the girl in the red takes off in the white car her window goes up and down between shots. Also, when Roxanne is getting into the SUV right before she dies the door is locked, but then she just opens the door like it isn't, and the windows are up, but when the other runs up to the vehicle the window is down.

Below (2002)

Below picture

Deliberate mistake: As the sub rises backwards to the surface, the stern emerges from the water at a steep angle, then rises near-vertically so that the boat is virtually standing on the tip of its bow. Anything left loose on a countertop would surely fall off. But when the boat falls onto its belly, a close-up shows a pistol sliding off a sink counter into the hand of the Captain- because it's dramatic and cool looking, yet extremely improbable- especially considering that an open tin of shaving foam, its lid and a foam brush all lay on the same counter, undisturbed.

Continuity mistake: In the scene, at the end, where the girl is running away from the killer, You can see that she is wearing high heels. But when she's climbing the ladder, you can see she is wearing trainers, then high heels again when she's off the ladder.
