Phantasm II

Visible crew/equipment: Crew and cameras can be seen reflected in the silver sphere numerous times, especially as the sphere is embedded in the crematory henchman's hand and back. My personal favourite is when the silver sphere flies into the Tall Man's head, in a frontal shot you can see two crewmembers standing by a large grey camera, reflected in the silver ball.

Revealing mistake: As Reg fights with one of the baddies with the chainsaws, as the baddie take a swing with the chainsaw he misses and cuts into the wooden door. You can clearly see that a vertical cut has already been made in the wood though, to help the chainsaw get in and cut. (01:17:55)

Reggie: The Tall Man? That story about me blowing up my own house because it was infested with midgets. Mike, that wasn't real. Your doctor said that it was your own paranoid delusions caused by your brother's death.
