Best horror movie mistakes of 2002
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...
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?
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.
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: In the scene where Stallone is chasing and shooting at the killer in the factory, he bursts through a door and shoots the hanging body of the FBI/SWAT officer. In the first shot of the officer you can see his lips. The next shot of the body shows that his mouth is duct taped.
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.
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.
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.
