Bad Taste mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Derek pulls the large knife out of the alien's foot and gets blood on his face he stands up and almost falls of the cliff. To the left in this shot you can plainly see a crewmember in a dark blue shirt, probably there to jump in if an accident should happen. (00:15:20)

Continuity mistake: When Frank nearly gets chopped by an axe-wielding alien, he grabs a knife lying near the chef (who is wearing a striped shirt) but when he finally gets the knife and swinging it upwards, the chef has now suddenly vanished. (01:05:45)

Continuity mistake: When Derek hits the alien with his blue van, splitting him in two, you can clearly see that no blood gets on the windshield. Yet in a following closeup the windshield wipers are clearing a lot of blood from it. (01:02:40)

Continuity mistake: On the cliff, Robert jumps out and grabs Derek. Robert punching Derek square in the chest is shown between two different angled shots. In the first shot, as Robert pulls his clenched fist backwards, Derek's scarf has disappeared. (00:23:00)

Continuity mistake: When the house is pulling the green sheet inwards, Frank is crawling away trying to get off it. In one shot he is crawling and there's planks and bits of wood scattered around and under him, but none in the next shot. (01:18:45)

Continuity mistake: When the collector gets hit in the head by the chef, he falls and slides down the stairs. He slides down about five steps, but when it cuts, it's only two steps. (00:32:40)

Revealing mistake: After Derek lifts up the carpet in the blue van after running over an alien, he punches in a code on what looks like a code entry panel to grab the chainsaw. Upon closer inspection, he's actually entering the code into a calculator.
