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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Visible crew/equipment: When the aliens chase the gang through the forest, the gang climb into the car. The aliens then shoot at the car, and then the gang drives away. As they drive forward onto the path, you can see a big pile of equipment, bags and other objects, and a camera set up across the road.
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.
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.

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank is listening to the alien leader and realizes the entire town is stuffed into the boxes, he goes back to the rest of the guys. When he closes the door, the shadow of the camera man is visible on the door. Shadows from crew members are visible in this same room several times.
Revealing mistake: When the collector gets into his car, he tries to close the car window. Robert puts his hand through the window. The collector manages to close it well enough to trap Robert's hand and takes off in his car. From a camera view outside the car, you can see the window isn't closed enough for Robert's hand to be trapped.
Continuity mistake: In the start of the film you see "the boys" driving in their car talking on a C.B. to another man in the group they are meeting. If you notice the one doing the talking spends most of the time with the CB backwards using the mounting notch by his face, but when the scene switches from inside the car to outside it is turned around the correct way.
Revealing mistake: When Barry has shot the alien in the head at the beach the camera is filming the aliens feet as the blood starts dripping. Then the camera start moving up and when the camera reach the alien's waist level you can see a sudden cut. This is done so the fake alien puppy with half its head gone can be used.
