Revealing mistake: When the lawn mower the heroes send off as a diversion crashes you can see a wire pulling it.

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 "snake-oid" pushed up through it.

Revealing mistake: When the horse is lying on the ground with the tentacle wrapped around it, you can see a wire to the left of the screen attached to the horse.

Revealing mistake: As the last Graboid falls off the cliff at the end, just before it hits the ground, you can see its skin has already been cut up for the "blood" to gush out of upon impact.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bert kills one of the monsters in his place, the shot goes to Val and Earl they congratulate Bert over the radio. When the shot goes back to Bert, pause the dvd or go to slow motion, and look at the window as it pans up, you can see a man with a red cap just standing there.

Continuity mistake: When Val and Earl are being chased by the graboid in the first shot it appears that the graboid is going perpendicular to the fence (you can see this because of the wires that cross it). But in the next shot the graboid appears to be going parallel to the fence.

Continuity mistake: When we see Rhonda placing a sensor to the ground we see her throwing her cap to the ground. When it cuts the cap has moved closer to the hole in the ground.

Continuity mistake: When they all are trying to lure the graboids away from Val, Rhonda looks down the pipe running down the from the water tank. A piece of cloth soaked in water is tied around the pipe and water is dripping from it. When it cuts to Rhonda climbing down the water has stopped dripping.

Continuity mistake: When Rhonda, Earl and Val are pole vaulting from rock to rock, if you look closely you can see that the poles are a lot longer than when they first picked them up off the ground.

Continuity mistake: When the snakeoid is chasing Val and Earl after they lose their horses, they run along a fence and the monster causes all the fence posts to fall over backwards. But shortly after, all the fence posts are seen to be upright, although some are tilted a little to the right.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Jim and his wife are backing away from where the generator was, you can see them moving towards the car behind them. When it cuts, they are now facing the car.

Mortug

Factual error: Throughout the entire film Burt holds all of his rifles' butts underneath his armpit, rather than against his shoulder. A trained "survivalist" such as him would surely know better. Holding the "elephant gun" in such a way would most likely break his arm, wrist and hand when it fired.

Continuity mistake: In the movie, Earl's last name was Basset, but in the credits, his last name was Bass.

Revealing mistake: When Valentine grabs Mindy off the pogo stick, you can tell it's been stuck into the ground so the actress can stand on it and be ready for Kevin Bacon to grab her (as opposed to Kevin Bacon grabbing her while she's bouncing). After she's grabbed, you can see the pogo stick shake back and forth without falling over.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Valentine and Earl gets to Chan's, you see Heather packing some stuff into a box. She then takes a ketchup bottle in her left hand and a spray box in her right hand. When it cuts she is holding the ketchup in her right hand.

Continuity mistake: When Val finally gets the truck moving after being held by the graboid, you can't see any of the remaining tentacle holding on to the differential. When they get to town, it's now there where you should have been able to see it.

Continuity mistake: At the end, as Val and Rhonda are talking, Val's hat brim is flat. Rhonda walks off, and Earl slams the hood of the truck. When they show Val again, the brim of his hat is curved upwards.

Movie Nut

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.

Mortug

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.

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end, just after Kevin Bacon says "this one's not falling for it," watch for a boom mike right at the top of the screen.

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: 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.

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 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.

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.

Revealing mistake: After the law mower 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.

Skrypto

Continuity mistake: When the "graboids" are testing the buildings, they test the house with the mother and daughter on it. Watch the sky in the background. It goes from sunny to overcast, then back to sunny in a matter of seconds.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Jim and his wife are backing away from where the generator was, you can see the ground behind them is flat. When it cuts, there is suddenly a pile of sand on the ground. This pile is hiding the hole that Jim falls into.

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.
