Phantasm

Factual error: Mike attaches a shotgun shell to a hammer to blow a hole in a door. This would be quite likely to kill him - in a shotgun blast, the explosive force, and hence the buckshot, is channelled along the gun barrel. Without a barrel to channel the force, the blast would send buckshot in all directions. (01:00:40)

Revealing mistake: You can see the stick making the finger move when it's in the box. (00:38:20)

Trivia: Angus Scrim, who played the villainous "Tall Man," really was quite tall in real life, coming in at 6'4." However, the director had him wear platform shoes to make him even taller. As seen in the film, he's about 6'7", or a full ten inches taller than the average man.
