Bad Taste mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the guy falls off the cliff and splats on the rocks below, if you watch it in slow motion, you can just see an orange bucket appear for a few moments which chucks the blood in the air. (00:23:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera pans alongside the blue van, which is shaking, because Derek is spasming on the ground you can see some sort of dolly or camera with small wheels being pushed along. (01:01:10)

Continuity mistake: The way that Derek's scarf is tied, and the position of it, and the way it hangs etc., changes between various shots throughout the movie. One good example is when he pulls the gun out of the stupid alien's body. (00:18:55)

Continuity mistake: When Barry is getting followed across the beach by the guy, Barry shoots him once and blood falls on to the floor, and also on to Barry's face. He shoots the guy a second time in the head, and the view is from behind as the guys head explodes. If you look at Barry during this shot, you'll see his face is clean of any blood once there, but then it returns in the next shot. (00:03:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the guys are getting the weapons from the car, in the forest clearing, the ground surrounding the parked car changes through the scene. At first, it is brown dirt with branches and twigs everywhere. By the end of the scene, when they exclaim "the bastards have landed," the ground is now covered with lush green grass. (00:39:05 - 00:40:55)

Continuity mistake: When the guys are in the forest clearing, getting guns from the car boot and changing their clothes, Frank says "Don't you forget Oz..." and he takes his white jacket off while he is speaking. But in the following shot Frank's jacket is now back on him again, zipped all the way up. (00:40:15)

Continuity mistake: In the car on the collectors passenger seat there's a pile of collection bags, and a heavy machete resting atop. However in the shot where he pushes the handbrake down, you can see the passenger seat has nothing on it. (00:29:30 - 00:30:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When the alien with the sledgehammer in his head falls to the floor in a shot from behind, you can see a black pad he's wearing, and a white hose which is running up his shirt, used to pump the blood. (00:22:20)

Continuity mistake: Robert drops a machete on the collectors lap when he has his hand trapped in the window, and the collector tosses it onto the passenger seat. in the following shot where he says "bye-bye," the machete is now repositioned. (00:29:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When the collector, and the guys are standing on the stairs trying to escape, an alien walks down the hallway, and then a shot from over the banister swings to follow him. You can clearly see two red shoes and legs wearing jeans, standing by the banister - obviously the camera operator. (00:52:05)

Visible crew/equipment: After Ozzy and Frank put the "Road Closed" sign up, the shot widens to follow the car, and the camera pans upward to reveal the "Kaihoro" road sign. On the floor beside the signpost, as the camera pans up, is an aluminum camera box and a Sennheiser microphone. (00:26:20)

Continuity mistake: When the guys are in the room eavesdropping on what the alien leader has to say, one alien holding a glass bowl walks in on them. In this shot, Frank's wolleen hat is off. Then in the shot when Frank punches the alien, it has reappeared back on his head. Cut back and it has gone again. (00:44:50)

Continuity mistake: When the chef swipes the knife, he hits another alien in the chest cutting him vertically. The cut is obviously not that long or deep, however in the next shot the alien is slashed right across his chest very deeply. (00:58:50)

Revealing mistake: When Derek falls and is rolling down the cliff, it is a very clear dummy. It's legs and arms are in a stiff seated position. (00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: During the shootout in the gardens, Frank is standing by a large green plant, which is in the middle of the gardens, with grounds, plants and paths behind it. In the next shot as he runs to the next plant, running behind the previous plant is a small wooden fence, which has suddenly appeared. (00:55:50)

Visible crew/equipment: When Barry shoots the alien following him, he hit's the axe head twice. Both times you can see a wire running up to the axe, probably to set of the shots. (00:02:50)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: In one shot as Frank is lying on his back, shooting, there are loads of leaves on the ground all around him, which suddenly disappear between shots. (00:56:35)
