Corrected entry: When the killer stabs a newspaper picture of Harry, the rubber knife blade bends.


Correction: It's not a rubber knife. It's a boning knife, which is designed to be flexible. When the killer is slicing the newspaper with the knife, he puts so much pressure on the knife that the blade bends as it should (although most rubber knives aren't sharp enough to slice up newspaper as he does).


Corrected entry: After Rook kills the cameraman and goes after the reporter, when she is sitting in his chair, you see that his knife is now clean.

Correction: Rook could have cleaned his knife at any time after killing the cameraman.

Visible crew/equipment: In the radio control car chase scenes over the humpy streets, camera equipment is visible in the rear seat area of the lead car.

Trivia: When the film was released, Axl Rose told the crowd at Hilton Coliseum, Ames, IA, on 27th July 1988, not to waste their money and see "The Dead Pool," despite being in the film. Confirmable by listening to the show.
