Deliberate mistake: In the lab, when Eddie is riding his motorcycle on the upper level in the wideshots, the stunt double is rather obvious despite the added padding, due to his slimmer face and non-chunky arms.

Deliberate mistake: In order to create the effect where Brad, Janet and Dr. Scott's bodies are turned into stone by Frank, casts were made of the actor's bodies, to create statues of them for the scene. The device turns their bodies into stone, but somehow a pedestal appears beneath both Brad and Janet - although this is obviously to make the statutes stand, where would the pedestals actually appear from in the story? Richard O'Brien, the screenwriter and writer of the original musical, referenced to the pedestals during the DVD commentary, expressing his dislike for them, but also questioning where they would have appeared from.

Factual error: The criminologist describes the events of the movie as taking place "on a late November evening". In the very next scene, Brad and Janet are driving in Brad's car, and President Richard Nixon's resignation speech is playing on the radio. Nixon resigned in August of 1974. (00:12:00)

Suggested correction: It is said by the writer of the movie that Brad taped the Nixon speech so he could listen to it later in his car, the movie does take place in late November.
