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. When Kevin Bacon and the other guy figure out to use it, the camera pans around and the tractor and trailer are 60-100 feet apart.

Joseph Greene

Continuity mistake: When Val's bomb gets spat back to the rock and scatters the gang, three of them wind up far away from the rock - too far to have made it in the time of the scene.

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. In the next shot, from the front view, it is greenish leather. This scene takes place after Rhonda's near miss with the graboid but before the first guy, old Edgar, is found dead.

Revealing mistake: When the graboid starts pulling Jim underground, his wife hands him a board to keep him above ground. You can see the thick board bend rather easily while his wife hands it to him. Also when Jim is sucked under ground it bends quite easily as well, as if it were styrofoam.

Revealing mistake: When Earl and Rhonda are being chased into the store and they're running along the little boardwalk, the boards are forced up like a wave by the snakeoid. But the ground under the boardwalk is perfectly flat.

Visible crew/equipment: As the camera pans up to the roof of Bert's house, a film crew member is reflected in the window.

Movie Nut

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

Revealing mistake: When the graboid goes to launch out of the side of the cliff, you can see the wall is fake because it moves in and out right before it breaks through.

Revealing mistake: Given that the store is a set to move up and down to simulate the graboid attacking it, we can actually see the store's brick walls bouncing in the shot before the effect was used.

jerimiah

Revealing mistake: After the lawnmower flips over, the camera angle from behind it shows the steering mechanism that's attached to the front wheels would not be on a normal one.

jerimiah

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

Earl Bassett: What kind of fuse is that?
Burt Gummer: Cannon fuse.
Earl Bassett: What the hell you use it for?
Burt Gummer: My cannon.

Trivia: When Mindy is getting her picture taken next to one of the graboid's tongues, look at the shelf of movies behind her when the camera zooms out its farthest in that shot; in the second row down (I think it's the in the second row down), if you look really closely, you can see that one of the movies is Tremors.
