The Return of the Living Dead

Factual error: After trying to devise a plan to get rid of the "evidence", Burt runs up metal stairs and peeps out the window looking over in the direction of the cemetery and confirms Ernie Kaltenbrunner is still working. The lights in the funeral home were all off except for the embalming room where Ernie was working. As seen through the entire film the cemetery main gate seems to be the primary entrance onto the Resurrection Funeral Home property. In order to carry the evidence on a stretcher to the funeral home Frank, Freddie and Burt would have had to walk though the cemetery in order to get to the embalming room entrance and would have run into the punks and their party.

Suggested correction: They do run into the punks. The preppier looking guy and girl are sitting alone just after the grave yard dance. She asks "is that Freddie?" He responds "no, why would Freddie be going to a mortuary?"

Continuity mistake: When Freddy pours the popcorn out of the box at the beginning of the movie he sits the box down at an angle with the flaps open. But when he and Frank come back up stairs from the basement the box is back in place and the flaps are closed.


Suicide: You think this is a fuckin' costume? This is a way of life.
