Revealing mistake: When Henry Futterman is attacked by the winged Gremlin, most pedestrians just pass by, only glancing occasionally at Dick Miller's frantic performance, since the Gremlin was only inserted. Only when Futterman smashes the pest into the wet cement, the Gremlin is the 'real' thing. (01:02:35)
Deliberate mistake: The elevator operated by gremlins starts ascending at around 5 stories per second, based on the floor readings. Yet when the elevator suddenly stops dead, Kate does not fly into the air caused by the huge speed change. (00:50:05)
Continuity mistake: When Billy and Kate return to the Clamp building as the Gremlins hatch, look closely - Kate is wearing beige/tan colored pantyhose/tights in the first scene of them running to the building. ("How long do they take to hatch?", "Not long enough, come on!") Almost immediately after arriving, Kate is told to begin her duties as a tour-guide, and thus doesn't have time to change her outfit. However, in one of her next scenes, she is suddenly wearing brighter cream-colored pantyhose/tights. (And given her fairly consistent screen time as a tour-guide, it's clear she didn't have time to change this one part of her outfit).
