The Thing

Character mistake: The last time Doc tries the defibrillator on Norris, he uses it on the abdomen instead of on the chest.

Character mistake: When MacReady is giving the blood test, the scalpel they are using is not properly sterilized after each person cuts themselves (shown when Nauls cuts himself, then when Windows goes next: all he does is wipe the scalpel on his pants). Using the same scalpel seems like an extremely stupid thing to do as Fuchs told MacReady that even a small particle of the Thing could take over a person.

Trivia

The TV edit of this film includes lots of footage that was purposely left on the cutting room floor, such as when the dead Norwegian on the table blinks, and so on. The TV edit also has narration. This version is edited so much that director John Carpenter has publicly stated that he finds the TV edit embarrassing and a disgrace to his movie.
