Suggested correction: We only see 4 fence posts fall over in total. Considering there are probably 50+ fence posts there, I don't see how this can be an error.

Continuity mistake: When Val and Earl are relaxing with a couple of cold ones after they bury the trash, Val's recliner chair changes. From the side it is a brownish-rust color cloth material.

Continuity mistake: Reba gets out of their truck at the compound and looks through the binoculars - in the foreground you see the tractor and trailer they use to escape are very close together, or are attached already.

Audio problem: Right after Bert kills the second graboid he gets on the radio and says "we killed that mother-humper". Val replies "...be advised there are two more mother-humpers". However Val's lips don't seem to be saying "humper". This occurs even in unedited versions of the film. (01:01:40)

More trivia for Tremors

Question: I know the movie is called Tremors, but are the monsters called "tremors" or "graboids" or "snakeoids" or something else?

Answer: They officially name the creatures "graboids", as that's also what they call them in later films. Tremors is just a clever movie name, and "snakeoids" was just one of the potential names the chinese guy and the kid were thinking of naming them.
