Plot hole: In the end, when Charlie is advancing on Emily while turning his light on and off, the final time he turns it on, Kathrine is in front of Emily. How could she get there so fast without being heard? There's at least 4-5 inches of water that would make sneaking very hard.

Venom picture

Continuity mistake: Sean is standing by a window when Ray throws a chain through it and the chain wraps around Sean's neck. The following scene has Sean being pulled through the window, breaking away all the glass and the wooden dividers. When the scene cuts to the outside and the kids looking at Sean being pulled away, two broken wooden window sections have managed to regenerate and are visible from both the right and left sides of the window frame.

Alien Express picture

Factual error: Throughout the movie, as the train speeds through the starry night, the constellation Orion is recognizable (presumably rising) on the horizon. Oddly, Orion never rises any higher as the night progresses. Also, at the latitude of the southern U.S., the constellation would not rise (or set) vertically as shown but would be tipped at a considerable angle.
