The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Other mistake: During the "Hellfire" sequence, when Frollo is singing "God have mercy on her, God have mercy on me...", his shadow against the wall behind him rises as he backs up closer to the wall. However, when he turns around to press against the wall, his shadow ends up far above his body when it should have become level with his body by that point - like the very next close-up shot of Frollo shows, which is itself a continuity error.

Factual error: During the song "A Guy Like You," one of the gargoyles trips the trapdoor on Quasimodo's miniature hangman's scaffold. Trapdoors weren't used on scaffolds until the 18th century.

Frollo: And look what else I've caught in my net. Captain Phoebus, back from the dead. Another "miracle", no doubt. I shall remedy that.

Question: I'm not of the Catholic religion so I have a question. During Frollo's fireplace song he sees those faceless people wearing the red cloaks and then on the wall there are shadows holding crosses and stuff like that. Are these any specific objects of the catholic religion or just your average devils and angels?

Answer: They are representations of good and evil.
