Hallowed Ground picture

Factual error: When the cop saves the girl from the mob of locals, his car tires squeal as he accelerates away, but the car is on loose dirt, which makes the squealing impossible.

Premonition picture

Continuity mistake: The beginning of the movie was set on Thursday, the day after Jim died, and Bridgette's face was just fine. Later in the movie, on Saturday, Bridgette was at the funeral with cuts and stitches on her face. Then, the movie goes back to Tuesday, the day before Jim died, and they show Bridgette running into the glass door and cutting her face. So if it happened on Tuesday, the first scene of the movie (Thursday) should have shown the cuts on her face.

Halloween picture

Other mistake: Michael kills the truck driver and takes his clothes. Everything fits him perfectly, despite Michael being taller and bigger than the other guy.

Suggested correction: This is incorrect, the truck driver's overalls look obviously baggy on him when shown wearing them, and although Michael is definitely taller than the truck driver within this remake, there's no doubt in my mind that they are about as big as each other in terms of shoulder width, body width. In reality it would fit Michael perfectly.

The Reaping picture

Continuity mistake: When the car door is ripped off by the cow, it shows the truck with the door intact.

The Hills Have Eyes 2 picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, just after the war exercise, when the Sergeant begins yelling at the recruits you can see the outline of his microphone under his T-Shirt. (It's not his dog tags because you can see the shape and dog tags are not shaped like that.)

Saw IV picture

Other mistake: In Saw II, Jigsaw shares a story with Detective Matthews about how he attempted suicide after his cancer diagnosis by driving his car off a cliff. We then see Jigsaw pulling a metal rod out of the left side of his stomach. However, no puncture wound/scarring is visible on Jigsaw's stomach when his autopsy is being performed.

Aliens vs Predator: Requiem picture

Continuity mistake: The birth of the Predalien in this movie is completely different than it was in the first AVP. The lights on the table are different and the Predalien bursts out differently than in the first film.

Resident Evil: Extinction picture

Plot hole: When L.J. Is bitten he manages to suppress becoming a zombie for 1-2 days. When Carlos is bitten by L.J. he is infected so quickly and talks about it "being too late for him" (whereas in the previous film he had 3 hours before getting the antidote). Why is this different now and why is Carlos not still carrying the antidote in him?

Suggested correction: The t-virus was modified by her blood, as explained in the latter part of the movie. Therefore his blood would have no natural immunity, and this would explain why it infected at an accelerated rate.

Wrong Turn 2: Dead End picture

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Nina is tied up around the wrist with razor wire and Dale shows up to rescue her by putting his knife in the wire to free her, suddenly the wire has changed and is extremely loose. Before it was bigger and tightly tied around her wrists.

1408 (2007)

1408 picture

Continuity mistake: As Mike scrolls through the microfilm, we see his view as the pages scroll from right to left. The shot then reverses to show his face through the scrolling film, but while the film is now properly reversed, it's still moving right to left in our view. But this reversed angle should show it moving left to right.

Hostel: Part II picture

Continuity mistake: When Miroslav is massaging Whitney in the hot springs, the amount of body scrub cream on them drastically changes during shots.

BloodRayne 2: Deliverance picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, in the scene where Rayne finds two bodies near a small house, she takes out one of her blades. Firstly, she grabs it in a wrong way (the tonfa-like blades should be held under the arm), but when the camera angle changes she holds it properly.

28 Weeks Later picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Doyle is talking to the helicopter pilot at the park, you can see another pilot on the left side of Doyle's head for a split second.

The Messengers picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the mother, Denise, is finally beginning to believe their house may be haunted, and is questioning Ben as to whether or not he can see them, Ben points out the window. When Ben points, you can see that the curtain is over the window. When Denise looks back, the curtain is wide open so she can see the barn. When she looks back to Ben, the curtain is again closed.

Ian Mugford
The Haunting Hour picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the dance, where the pumpkin pours cockroaches all over Priscilla, she falls over onto the cake. When she first falls onto the cake, she's just wearing tights and no shoes. In the next shot, she's wearing black shoes.

Add time

The Mist picture

Factual error: There is a scene near the beginning of the movie when the mist has just begun. A firetruck roars by, and has Caddo Parish Fire Dept. on the side. This movie is set in Maine. Louisiana is the only state with parishes. All others, including Maine, have counties.

Straightheads picture

Continuity mistake: The next morning after they have been attacked, the car windscreen that was smashed is now untouched.

Grindhouse picture

Continuity mistake: Mike avoids colliding head-on with a pickup by swerving off the road into a farm field. He does this after passing a tractor and flatbed truck to his right. The shot changes and he is turning off the road into the field between the tractor and truck.

The Hitcher picture

Continuity mistake: Right after Jim has his nightmare while sleeping in the car, he looks around for Grace, who is standing outside the car looking at scenery. When Jim sees her, she has her arms crossed over her chest. The next shot, with Jim walking around the car, she has her arms by her side, and immediately after, the shot with Jim approaching her, she has her arms crossed again. All this took place in about 2 seconds, not enough time to drop her arms and recross them exactly the same way as the first shot.
