Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Corrected entry: When Victor is being chased by the creature in the arctic, Victor is pushed/slides down a hole, and conveniently lands on ice. When he gets up, the monster is already there - almost like he teleported. It is a physical impossibility for the monster to get down the hole so fast.

Correction: Victor is seen to be knocked out by his fall - there is even a short shot of the Creature picking him up and carrying him to the spot where he later wakes up.

Twotall

Corrected entry: When Victor makes the female Frankenstein he uses Elizabeth's whole head, so why are there scars on one of her eyes and her top lip when he didn't use other body parts there?

Correction: She has scars there because she was burned at the hotel. There was probably some reconstructive work that Victor did there which was simply not shown.

Audio problem: When the man with the peg leg is trying to resist getting a shot of anti-smallpox serum from Professor Waldman, he yells, "You're not sticking that in me. You're not sticking that in me." But if you look closely, you can see that his lips are not moving. (00:32:45)
