Tremors

Continuity mistake: When Walter names the monsters Graboids he puts his hands down. When it cuts he holds both arm against his waist. (00:45:05)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: At Dr. Jim's when he is standing by where the generator should be, you can see several items around. When it cuts all the items has moved. (00:22:40)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When Val is getting the fuse lit on his bomb to throw to the last Graboid, we see his hands separated, one holding the bomb and one holding the rope. The camera angle changes to a close up of his hands, where they are now both holding both the bomb and rope. (01:24:50)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, watch Kevin Bacon's hair when they're driving in the truck. In some camera shots, his hair is blowing in the wind. In others, his hair is not moving at all. This happens several times.

Videl

Continuity mistake: The green fuzzy dice in the guys' truck change over and over. Sometimes they're stuck up behind the rear view mirror, sometimes they're hanging down. Granted, they could fall and the guys could stick them back up again, but in one scene when they're behind the mirror, the faces of the dice that are visible from the front change.

Krista

Continuity mistake: When all pole vault, Fred is holding the pole in his right hand palm up. Then he goes 1/2 the distance and returns to the start but his right hand is palm down. (01:00:00)

Continuity mistake: When Val is climbing up the electrical tower to get Edgar down, at first the sky is blue, then suddenly it's overcast. (00:13:40)

Krista

Continuity mistake: After Burt reports on the radio that he has killed the graboid in his basement, there are shots of the towns people celebrating. The sky behind all of them is different, specifically the mother and her daughter. In other shots there is blue sky. In these shots there are darker clouds.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walter is being attacked by the Grabbloid, the blood coming from his nostrils, and blood on his upper lip, changes between the first and second shot. (00:51:20)

Skrypto

Continuity mistake: When Val, Earl and Rhonda are on the rock and decide to pole vault off, Rhonda's backpack is flat when she scrambles down the rock, but appears full once she reaches the bottom. (00:40:20)

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Val, Earl and Rhonda are way off the rocks after the blast. When the monster comes up out of the ground and Val takes off, you can see the "ground" bounce. It's definitely a false ground so they can get the "graboid" pushed up through it. (01:24:10)

Earl: Damn it listen to me, I'm older and I'm wiser.
Val: Yeah well, you're half right.

More quotes from Tremors

Trivia: Reportedly, star Kevin Bacon was at a rough patch in his life during production and didn't understand the appeal of the film or the light-hearted comedic elements. (Even once breaking down in public and exclaiming in frustration "I'm in a movie about giant underground worms!") And thus, he chose to have no involvement in the sequels. It wasn't until some years later that he decided to re-visit the film and give it another chance after it became a massive cult-hit, and discovered that he actually really loved it. Bacon has since gone on record saying one of his dream projects would be to reprise his role of Val McKee in a future film.

Question: Wouldn't Burt and his wife get in trouble for having all the weapons in their house? Even in later movies, there is no sign they got in trouble and Burt continued to have all these big weapons on hand.

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: No, there's nothing illegal about any of the weapons they owned. Some of them may have required a Class 3 firearms license, but even this is not difficult (just expensive) for a law-abiding citizen to obtain.
