Children of the Corn

Continuity mistake: When Burt, Vicky, Job and Sarah arrive back to the corn-trashed car at the end of the movie, the corn stuffed inside the front of the car is no higher than the open bonnet, yet in the next shot corn is sticking out, up higher than the open bonnet. (01:23:20)

Continuity mistake: When we see the beginning of rebellion inside Hansen's Cafe, you can notice through the front window a building across the street with a sign saying something like "Stone Master Products". Three years later, when Burt and Vicky stop by Hansen's Cafe, the buildings that we saw before are nowhere to be seen - no rebuilding has occurred as the town is deserted except for the children. It is because the interior shots of the cafe were filmed in a different town.

Continuity mistake: When Amos is saying "I'm ready to celebrate my birthday", priestess is looking at him. After that, Isaac starts yelling and when the shot changes, she is suddenly looking towards Isaac.

Visible crew/equipment: When the two lead characters pull up to a stop in the car, the shot is dead-on from the driver's side, and you can clearly see the entire camera crew reflected in the side of the car. (00:30:10)
