Flight 7500 picture

Factual error: During the decompression the plastic water bottles crush. The opposite should happen, as a decrease in external pressure would cause the bottles to expand.

The Purge: Anarchy picture

Plot hole: Towards the end the Rich Purgers call for reinforcements, and Shane, Leo, Eva and Cali are hiding behind a wall. A guy somehow opens a door in front of them (without being seen by the three facing him), exposes himself and shoots only Shane, numerous times, to cause his death. He should have been spotted by the people looking in his direction. Also, if he was that well hidden he could have simply sprayed the entire group. He unloaded 5 or 6 shots to Shane's chest...when he could have taken them all out.

Annabelle picture

Factual error: The movie depicted the use of obstetrical ultrasound. While ultrasound was first "perfected" in the late 1950s, it wasn't used in British hospitals until the 1970s and not in US hospitals until well into the 1970s, well past the setting of the movie in the 1960s.

Continuity mistake: The girl that Jesse brought into the house, Penelope, was wearing a blue skirt with leggings when they arrived at the house. However when she walks around the corner to take off her shirt she comes back with just black leggings on.

Ouija picture

Factual error: In the first scene of the film the girls are shown in a flashback playing with the Ouija board. When one of them holds the planchette up to the other one, the underside of it has text saying "© 2013" molded into the plastic, even though the scene is based years before that. (00:01:20)

Tusk picture

Factual error: At the diner scene at the Gimli Slider, there's an ashtray with a lit cigarette on the table. Manitoba has had a smoking ban in all enclosed public spaces for over a decade.

Joy Ride 3 picture

Other mistake: When Jordan drops Rusty's truck into the compactor, the excavator and its claw seem just too small for the job. You can see the truck has been sawed shorter as the truck's rear axles stay on the ground while the cab goes in the compactor. There is no possible way for the truck to snap in half like that when lifted. This small excavator would just simply have flipped over trying to raise the truck by the engine compartment.

Revealing mistake: When the girl gets her head cut off with the barbed wire, when her body falls to the ground, her feet bounce around like rubber.

Extraterrestrial picture

Revealing mistake: At the end when April and Kyle are killed, they are thrown in a hole back first. When they are shown, they are neatly positioned beside each other. April even has her knees bent up and Kyle has his arm around her waist meaning they obviously positioned themselves for the final shot.

Stonehearst Asylum picture

Revealing mistake: When Millie is being carried away, her head remains completely upright as though under her own control. If she was dead her head would hang back.

Housebound picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where she accidentally stabs someone - she gets blood all over her from the stabbing and then in the very next scene is wearing the same shirt without blood stains.

Alien Abduction picture

Factual error: The alien drops the video camera out of the UFO from outer space and it falls to earth landing on the ground. This very far drop would certainly have busted it to pieces, if not ignited it on reentry, but when the guy picks it up off the ground, it appears only the screen is cracked.

The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the little boy is lying in bed looking up at a hole in the wall you see a creepy hand move, the while time, if you look closely, there appears to be a human hand with human fingers to the right of it in the darkness.

Continuity mistake: As the jeep with the killer goes over the cliff and smashes face down you can see nobody is in the jeep as it disintegrates the front part. (01:14:00)

The Possession of Michael King picture

Revealing mistake: Tortured by the demonic voices in his head, Michael King goes into a self-mutilating frenzy with a kitchen knife, except that he squeezes the handle of the bleeding-knife prop a bit too hard and it squirts fake blood horizontally across his chest.

What We Do in the Shadows picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene were Viago is showing the locket that his girlfriend, Katherine, gave him, he puts it on, and since it's silver, it starts to burn his skin. The smoke from his burning flesh is coming from something on the table in front of him, not from inside his shirt.

Backcountry picture

Factual error: Writer/director Adam MacDonald boasted that he studied black bear predatory behavior and black bear attacks on humans for years in preparation for making this film, because he wanted to depict a black bear attack in as factual and as authentic a manner as possible. But, at the most crucial point in this film (when the black bear actually does attack Alex and Jenn), factual accuracy goes out the window. As Alex and Jenn cower in terror, the bear lunges into their tent and bites into Alex's leg; whereupon, Jenn fires a can of bear spray (a stifling pepper-based chemical) point-blank into the animal's face. The startled bear retreats for a moment, but then lunges into the tent again, dragging Alex outside and killing him; thereafter, the bear continues pursuing Jenn for the remainder of the film. However, according to years of extensive study by the University of Calgary, no bear has ever attacked a human after the animal was sprayed with bear spray, much less resumed an attack, as depicted in this film. To date, the success rate of defensive bear spray is 100%. So, the factual accuracy of "Backcountry" was abandoned for the sake of cheap thrills.
