The Relic

The Relic (1997)

5 corrected entries

Corrected entry: When Margo first explores the Superstition exhibit near the beginning of the movie, she has to step over a velvet rope blocking its entrance. However, when she runs out of it a few minutes later, she charges right through the entrance and down the stairs - the rope was obviously removed so she could run faster, but in reality, she would have either jumped over it or tripped and fell.

Correction: When she is running her arms are pumping but when she reaches the rope she raises them in a wing - like fashion as people do when they are jumping down. You can also faintly hear her shoes thud when she lands because she jumped the over the rope (which was only calf high) and the three steps.

Corrected entry: What happened to the Blaisedales immediately after the Kothoga killed Parkinson? The Blaisedales grabbed each other while gasping, and the Kothoga knocked McNally into a glass display case (thus killing him), and it loomed over Parkinson's body. There are no shots, sounds, or other hints as to what became of the Blaisedales. They simply are dropped from the film entirely at this point.

Correction: Most likely they were killed. At the end of the movie, an officer tells the police captain that there are two bodies inside the main exhibition hall. These could very well be the bodies of the Blaisdales. We might not have seen them get killed but it's a possibility.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Margo is running through the laboratory, knocking glasses and vials over to make the place flammable so she can kill the creature. She must have some strong feet, because there's all this broken glass all over the floor, and she's running around with only pantyhose between her feet and the floor.

Correction: When she knocks the jars and bottles over, they fall behind her. The floor where she is running doesn't have the broken glass on it yet. She'd only hurt her feet if she turned around and went back the way she came.

Corrected entry: When the Kothoga is running towards D'Agosta, Dr. Frock, and Margo, they go to slam the door shut, and there is the briefest shot of the dog, Pollux, that D'Agosta was leading - and that's it; no more is ever seen of the dog. There is no conclusion of if it was killed, ran away, or anything.

Correction: After Margo screams after seeing the Kothoga there is a scene that shows Pollux break free from the chain that D'Agosta is holding and run away.

Corrected entry: Penelope Ann Miller places Tom Sizemore's lucky bullet down her cleavage. She then has a very physical and athletic finale. At the end, she pulls the bullet out and gives it back to Tom. Considering she was wearing a small dress with straps, (no bra) and Ms. Miller doesn't have "much" down there anyway, that bullet should have dropped right to the floor.

Correction: As Margo is talking to Dr. Frock about the leaves from the crates if you look closely enough you can see that she is wearing a bra. The bra however is strapless.

Mistakes

In the end when the Kothoga is on fire and chasing Margo, it catches up to her in moments. However, everytime it dramatically changes angles, the Kothoga appears alot futher away than it was previously, but soon after catching up once again. Noting her progress in the room, this situation is NOT simply replaying the same scene from different angles. Plus when she gets to the water tank, she has plenty of time to spare to hit a lever, climb the device, and jump in before the Kothoga looms overhead.

Trivia

Producers Gale Anne Hurd and Sam Mercer wanted to film the movie at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. However, the museum's administration was afraid that the film would not only cast the museum in an unflattering light, but it would also scare kids away from the museum. They were given permission by the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to film there, because they loved the movie's premise.
