Best horror movie mistakes of 2003

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre picture

Factual error: This movie states that it is during the year 1973, yet in the beginning of the movie when they are driving in the van they are listening to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This song was not released publicly until 1974.

Freddy Vs. Jason picture

Revealing mistake: In the fight scene at the pier, after Freddy and Jason get thrown into the air by the carriage that smacks into them, they land on the pier in sort of slow motion. Watch Jason's left knee as he lands, you can see a kneepad.

The Haunted Mansion picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eddie Murphy is going into the crypt, he takes one of the lit torches. While they are trying to escape the skeletons, the door to the crypt closes and locks. When they show the shot of his son outside, you see two torches again. When he gets the doors open and they leave, you see one.

Gothika picture

Plot hole: In the scene where she goes to her house after escaping there is no police tape on the front door even though it is a crime scene. Earlier the police searched and taped her office it only makes sense that they would do the same to her house.

Jeepers Creepers 2 picture

Continuity mistake: When Bucky jumps on the hood of the bus to get back in, the Creeper flies from in front of the moon towards the bus causing all the kids to run away. Bucky can still be seen staying put on the hood when they run - however in the next shot of all the kids running you see him at the front of the pack which would have not been possible given that he didn't run right away.

Wrong Turn picture

Continuity mistake: When Chris talks to the cop and then the cop gets shot with an arrow, Chris runs into the truck and the man shoots another arrow. So altogether he shoots two times. The first one is in the cop's eye, so how come when he shoots the second through the truck window, there are now two arrows there, not one. He only fired two arrows and we see three.

The Gathering picture

Continuity mistake: When Cassie sits down at the table at the pub there is a menu lying next to her glass. When it cuts the menu has changed position.

Mortug
House of 1000 Corpses picture

Continuity mistake: When Karen Black shoots the sheriff, she puts the gun up close to the side of his head and fires. We see blood shoot out of the opposite side of his head but the side she shoots him on has not a scratch.

The House of the Dead picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the Zombies are chasing Greg in the woods, one of them leaps through the air. You can see the springboard he does it from.

The Order picture

Deliberate mistake: There is one scene in the movie where Heath Ledger reads a Latin sentence in a book. As he is translating the sentence, he goes over the words one by one with his finger. This would never be possible in a Latin sentence, because words in Latin are never - I repeat: never - in exactly the same order as in English. Words that actually belong together can be placed on opposite ends of a sentence.

Dreamcatcher picture

Continuity mistake: The cracks on Henry's diploma after the missed shot change between closeups and totals.

Cold Creek Manor picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Dennis Quaid has just rescued Sharon Stone from the devil's throat, they are running through the woods to get back to the house. Quaid says to Stone that they will take the Jeep. He is referring to the Jeep Grand Cherokee that he drives throughout the film. It's a newer model, possibly a Limited, with flashy star-shaped chrome rims. When they get to the house, they see that the Jeep is up in flames. The camera hangs on the vehicle for a solid 3-5 seconds. From this camera shot, it is extremely obvious that the flaming Jeep has rims that, although still star-shaped, are styled quite differently and are most likely the alloy wheel that was very popular on the older Laredo edition from the early to mid-90's.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in which Waldo & his co-worker are sorting parcels at the post office, an umbrella type photographic light diffuser can be seen reflected in a television set perched on a shelf in the background.

Vlad (2003)

Vlad picture

Factual error: How can a gun being *thrown at* a car window (as Adrian did with the thug's gun in the car chase sequence) possibly shatter the glass? No shots fired, no full body weight being thrown - just the gun.

Vampire Effect picture

Continuity mistake: When Helen puts the trashbag down, with the teddy on top, the teddy's scarf hangs down over its face. But when Gypsy picks it up, the scarf is no longer hanging over its face.

Hatchetman picture

Continuity mistake: Curtis is helping Molly seal the windows by screwing them shut. He hands the drill to Molly and she holds it up by her chest. When Claudia walks into the room Molly lowers the drill down in front of her below her waist. Then there is a quick cut back to Molly and Curtis as he says, " well that should do it", and the drill is back up in front of her chest again as she lowers it down a second time.

The Sin Eater picture

Factual error: There is one scene in the movie where Heath Ledger reads a Latin sentence in a book. As he is translating the sentence, he goes over the words one by one with his finger. This would never be possible in a Latin sentence, because words in Latin are never - I repeat: never - in exactly the same order as in English. Words that actually belong together can be placed on opposite ends of a sentence.

King of the Ants picture

Factual error: Sean is tailing his victim, taking photos with an old Polaroid camera (the kind that prints instant photos). In one scene, he is sitting on a bench and takes several shots. When he shows these pictures later, some are zoomed in on the subjects, when it would not be possible to zoom with this camera. He would have had to get up and walk toward them, thus giving himself away.

ZipWin
Shark Zone picture

Factual error: Throughout the film, most of the characters talk clearly underwater with the SCUBA mouthpieces in their mouths, which is impossible.

The Hitcher II: I've Been Waiting picture

Revealing mistake: When Maggie is chasing after the truck in the light aircraft what appears to be a "pasted-on" face in the cockpit, on closer inspection (with zoom feature on DVD players) is a male pilot flying the plane.

Add time

High Tension picture

Other mistake: When "the killer" is pumping gas, if you count the clicks associated with a liter going into the tank, they equal a total of 33 liters of gas, not 27 which is what the pump stops on.

Add time

Battle Royale II: Requiem picture

Deliberate mistake: When the teacher walks over the floor towards the blackboard, he walks through a lot of blood. However when it cuts, he leaves no traces of blood where he steps.

Add time

Mortug
Monster Man picture

Continuity mistake: When the monster truck rams the back of Adam's car the shot immediately after shows no damage at all to the back of the car. This happens in several scenes throughout the film until the car is eventually destroyed.
