Factual error: The Song "Looking for the Magic" by the Dwight Twilley Band plays on repeat several times throughout the movie, however it comes up as track 1 on the CD player each time."Looking for the Magic" was never the first track on a Dwight Twilley CD - It was track 2 on the group's 'Twilley Don't Mind' album released in 1977. You can tell the disc is not a homemade mix CD by the printing on the top of the CD the first time it is placed in the tray.
Factual error: In Sam's premonition, when Isaac is still in the bus when it is falling down to the water, he is at the front of the bus. In reality the falling force should be pushing him to the back of the bus.
Factual error: The character Peter has a modern haircut that would not have been found during medieval Europe; his hair defying gravity despite being a time without hair gel.
Factual error: Jerry digs up a natural gas pipeline in the backyard and jerks it so hard that a pipe coupling in Charlie's house breaks, venting natural gas into the house for about 4 seconds. Then Jerry uses a cigarette lighter to send a flame through the pipeline, exploding Charlie's house like a fire bomb, catching virtually every room in the house on fire. In reality, it would take an hour or more for vented natural gas to accumulate sufficiently to blow up a house, for one thing. For another thing, Jerry broke the gas pipeline in the backyard in order to ignite it; so, while the broken pipeline leading to Charlie's house had no gas pressure, the pressurized side of the pipeline was still in the backyard with Jerry. Meaning, Jerry himself should have been engulfed in fire as soon as he sparked a flame.Charles Austin Miller
Factual error: In his crude attempt to replicate the Human Centipede surgical procedure, Martin employs several handyman tools, including a carpenter's staple gun (using T50 staples as sutures). Problem is, carpenter's staples would never join soft human body tissues, they'd pull right out with little effort (T50 staples only join to very solid base materials, such as wood). Martin's victims, hysterical as they were, could have freed themselves from the T50 staples almost immediately.Charles Austin Miller
