The Return of the Living Dead

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning when Frank is giving Freddy the office tour, you can see camera shadows on the shelves as the camera goes across the aisles following the two men - just after they pack the female skeleton.

Visible crew/equipment: When Tom, Frank and Burt are trying to kill the first corpse they cut its head off and it runs around decapitated. There are a few shots where you can see its head.

Visible crew/equipment: When Burt calls the number on the side of the canister he gets transferred to the general, who was asleep at the time. When the general is taking down the information Burt gives him, behind the headboard is visible the hair and forehead of a crew member.

Other mistake: When Trash first comes back to life as a zombie there is a shot of rain falling and smoke swirling. The shot plays forward, then reverses for a second or two before playing forward again. The rain falls up and the smoke reverses direction.
