Visible crew/equipment: When Derek plunges down the cliff, he lands on a rock, but if you watch carefully it's very apparent that two hands belonging to a crewmember throw a pair of fake legs over the rock. (00:23:25)

Visible crew/equipment: In one shot where the camera is following alongside Robert with his hand stuck in the window, who is now running alongside the driving car, you can see, in the reflection of the collectors car windows, the top of the black car which is driving alongside, filming the shot. (00:29:50)

Continuity mistake: When we see Derek land on the rock after taking the fall down the cliff, behind the rock he landed on there is grassy hills and then some big rocks. Later when they say birds were the only thing he can relate to, it shows a shot of Derek covered in gulls, but now the huge rocks in the background scenery have gone, and in addition, the position of his legs have changed too. (00:23:25 - 00:25:55)

Continuity mistake: As he rolls down the cliff, one of Derek's shoe fall off, but they're both back on when we see him land on the rock. (00:23:20)

Continuity mistake: In close-ups, the gun that drops from Barry's pocket is sitting on a piece of wall plaster that fell off when he got attacked by the aliens in the shed. However the gun isn't there in any wide shots. (00:07:10)

Visible crew/equipment: When the collector is checking his map, you can see a crewmember reflected in the small window and the shiny sliver window edge. (00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: As Barry puts the body of the alien into the grass, his right shoe is clearly visible with no blood on it. In the next shot though, he says he should ring his strides out, we then see his right shoe covered in blood. (00:04:10)

Revealing mistake: Derek skids to a stop (on a road which is covered in gravel) - you can see a set of white tire tracks (kind of white skidmarks in the gravel, if you know what I mean) in the exact same place where he screeches to a stop. Multiple takes anyone? (00:59:15)

Revealing mistake: When Derek awakes on the rock, he obviously headbashes a gull made of wood. It is very fake, may be deliberate (This could be a "deliberate revealing."), but is a mistake nonetheless.

Continuity mistake: When Derek is holding onto the rope at the cliffs, we see the alien cut the rope. Later we see Derek holding onto the rope again. (00:21:30)

Audio problem: When Barry realizes he is out of bullets, he runs away. It cuts to the aliens running after him. You can see one of the aliens fire at him, but you can't hear any gunshot. (01:04:55)

Mortug Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Derek is lying on the ground by his car, his scarf is tied down to his crotch. When it cuts, it's tied down to his chest. (01:01:10)

Derek: I'm a Derek and Dereks don't run.
