The House of the Dead

The House of the Dead (2003)

31 mistakes

Visible crew/equipment: When the Zombies are chasing Greg in the woods, one of them leaps through the air. You can see the springboard he does it from.

Revealing mistake: When Casper is pulled through the window with zombies hacking and chewing on her legs, her stumps end up as two clean cuts.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The rain comes and goes from moment to moment. This is especially noticeable during the extremely long shootout sequence where it is alternately raining/not raining between cuts.

Add time

Revealing mistake: In several scenes of the zombies swimming under water, they are obviously holding their breath. Would a dead zombie need to do that?

Other mistake: When they are all on the beach and Simon kicks the zombie, which flips over and spits in his face. It hits his whole face, and some of his chest, yet later in the movie he has just one cheek effected by the "acid".

Revealing mistake: In the laboratory, one of the supposedly gray, rotting, skeletal zombies lying on a table has a very visible pink, healthy nose sticking out of its skull.

Plot hole: When the main bad guy is being hung as a normal human character, he speaks as he is being hung. However people cannot speak when they are being strangled.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rudy shoots the powder keg he is restrained by a zombie reaching through the door. The close-shots have him there, and in the far-shot he is gone, then he reappears in the close shot again.

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the 12-minute shoot-out, the camera pulls away from the group of protagonists in slow-mo. At the bottom of the screen, you can see the dolly-track that the camera is riding on.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the end, the main monster is wearing Greg's face. When he pulls off his hood you can see a full head of hair and no creases, but seconds later when he pulls the mask off the mask only consists of the front half of the head, there is no hair attached at all.

Add time

Revealing mistake: During big gun fight to the house, if you watch in slow mo, a lot of the Zombies aren't attacking anything or anyone. They just appear to be running around randomly, or standing there like they're not sure what to do.

Add time

Audio problem: Kirk's accent changes throughout the film. Sometimes it's American, sometimes Irish, and sometimes Russian.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Rudy fell on the bridge it was his right hand that was injured by a nail going right through it. But in later scenes when they are back inside the house, his left hand is bandaged instead of his right one.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the boat shootout, the same zombie (with the net on his back) is killed four or more times.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Note the final battle scene in front of the "house". That is, the house that was blown up earlier by a keg of gun powder.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Depending on what the zombies are trying to accomplish they either move veeeery slowly or at top speed, for example, when Kirk is on the boat, they swim with deft ability through the water but when they get on the boat and are ready to attack they move with stiff limbs.

Add time

Plot hole: When they are in the "house" they find a ships journal neatly typed out. It wouldn't be typed, it would be written by hand.

Continuity mistake: When the swimmer-girl notices that her boyfriend disappeared and she walks back to the beach leaving the water, her back and chest are already dry.

Add time

Continuity mistake: As they are walking up to the house for the first time with all sorts of guns, the type of gun changes between them quite a lot.

Factual error: When the zombies are about to over-run the house, one of the ravers sacrifices himself by shooting a keg of gunpowder to blow up the building. The problem is that gunpowder is not an impact explosive, you could shoot that keg all day and all it would do is put holes in it. Just shooting it would not cause an explosion.

Add time

Factual error: Within minutes of encountering the dead, the survivors are handed out guns and artillery and immediately know how to use them without any training. Considering the size and caliber of some of the guns they use, I doubt they would be so proficient, or calm, after less than a few minutes of using guns.

Add time

Factual error: When shooting several zombies approaching his boat, Captain Victor Kirk uses a Desert Eagle pistol and fires 13 times in a row without reloading - a Desert Eagle clip can hold only 7 to 9 rounds, depending on the caliber.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Captain Kirk commits suicide, his dynamite blows the door in allowing the zombies to enter the house. Then when Simon is grabbed he uses his gun to blow up the barrel of gunpowder and that explosion causes the door to get blown off once again.

Visible crew/equipment: When Cynthia is shot by Casper, the impact sends her flying. If you look closely you can see a harness under her skirt and over her shoulders (under her blouse).

Add time

Continuity mistake: Kirk leaves his ship and appears on land shooting at the zombies in the water. Yet he is not wet at all.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the characters are shown in bullet time in the long shootout scene, they are all wearing different clothes than in the previous normal time scenes.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the swimmer girl is walking through the forest looking for her missing boyfriend, at first she is only wearing her thong. In the next shot of her, she's wearing all the clothes she had on before she jumped in the water.

Add time

Other mistake: The entire time Captain Kirk is on the boat in the pouring rain he only gets a drop, maybe 2, of rain on him.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The guy who gets sprayed with acid in the face is holding a bandage on it shortly after getting sprayed and has a silver watch visible. The shot jumps from him to some one else and then back, where he has no watch visible, then back to some one else then back to him with his watch back but sleeve covering part of it.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Simon has been covered in acid, he is leaning against a tree, and in one shot we can see Liberty standing up. But in the next shot she is kneeling down, and then in the next standing up again.

Add time

Other mistake: When the three rave survivors are hiding in the house, they don't even barricade the door. Alicia just opens the door and walks right in. You'd think they would have at least but the wood across the door like later in the film.
