Tremors

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 Burt and Heather are fighting the graboid in their basement, shortly after Heather yells "Magazine!", one of the large revolvers between them falls off the rack but is replaced in the next shot.

BaconIsMyBFF

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)

DavidRTurner

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)

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.
