Zombie Lake

Visible crew/equipment: When the woman in the opening credits is taking off her clothes, she is about to take a blue shirt from her bag, but decided against it. As she does, you can see a crew member aimlessly wandering around in the bushes behind her. (00:01:40)

Continuity mistake: When Katya and the Mayor enter his study and sit down, in one shot Katya puts her hand up to under her mouth. In the next closeup it is down. (00:18:50)

Revealing mistake: When the father moves to close his dead daughter's eyes, the daughter's eyes close before the fathers fingers close them.

Revealing mistake: In many scenes and screenshots you can see that make-up was made sloppily: the faces of the undead Germans are rotting green, but their necks still retain a 'live' color. (00:52:20)

Continuity mistake: When one zombie attacks a woman who was adjusting her leggings, the woman's right black shoe falls off. In the next shot it's back on again. (00:55:55)

Visible crew/equipment: Thick cables which are clipped together, and thick ropes, are visible in many underwater scenes. (00:03:05)

Revealing mistake: After the ambushers says they will bury the German soldiers in the lake, one man kicks a soldier and he rolls down a small dirt hill. As he rolls, the 'dead' soldiers opens his eyes. (00:35:45)

Continuity mistake: One woman who is making some kind of a dough, puts it into a large metal bucket. The bucket has a large yellow handle on top. The woman puts the metal container in a wheelbarrow. The wheelbarrow also has a large wicker basket with no handle. When she turns the corner and then gets attacked by the zombie, the metal container is a different one, because the handle on top of the metal bucket has now completely changed. Also the large wicker basket now has an arched handle too. (00:09:30)

Visible crew/equipment: In the very first shot of the mayors study, the camera pans along. As it passes a large mirror, the head of a crew-member is reflected in it. (00:07:05)

Continuity mistake: When the German soldier zombies emerge from the lake to kill the two investigators, they are completely dry in all following shots. (00:51:50)

Other mistake: For corpses which have spent around a decade lying in water, the zombies' hair and uniforms are surprisingly well-groomed.

Continuity mistake: The zombie who attacks the woman who is making the dough has normal pink hands as he emerges from the lake. But when he jumps out at her and attacks her on the street, his hands are now green and rotting. (00:09:15 - 00:10:30)

Visible crew/equipment: During the ambush, one of the German soldiers gets shot in the eye. When he leans back you can see a transparent tube through which fake blood being pumped through it. (00:33:55)

Continuity mistake: When the German soldiers are thrown into the river, one soldiers boots are stolen, and he is thrown in with only socks on. In the movie, when all the zombies emerge from the lake, we see every zombie has boots on still.

Visible crew/equipment: When Katya and the Mayor enter the study and sit down, three cameramen, one holding a camera, can be seen wonderfully reflected in the oval shaped mirror behind the Mayor. (00:18:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Katya goes to visit the mayor for the first time, the power cables for the camera and lights are strewn across the mayor's living room floor. (00:18:40)

Revealing mistake: It's very obvious that all the "underwater" shots of the lake were shot in a swimming pool. During the first murder of the girl after the opening credits, you can see an exit sign through the water. Near the end of the movie, as the Zombies are rising to the top, we can see a bare pool wall. (00:03:55)

Continuity mistake: After the Mayor tells the story about the German soldiers to Katya, they stand up. The mirror behind Katya has a large black sheet covering it in this shot. It wasn't there before. (00:37:30)

Revealing mistake: The woman who was pushing the wheelbarrow, who is killed by a zombie in the street, is carried to a building and is laid on the floor outside it. In a side shot of her as her father grieves beside her, the dead woman's neck pulsates. (00:13:55)

Continuity mistake: In the end scene where the villagers have all of the zombies together in a barn and then set them on fire with a flamethrower, the scene starts in evening with the night getting really dark. But in shots you can see through the barns windows and doors, that the sky keeps alternating from dark evening, to bright day sky. Then after the zombies are killed by the fire, the sky has now changed to a permanent crystal blue day sky. (01:16:40)
