Near Dark

Visible crew/equipment: When Caleb punches the driver guy in the bar, the guy (who has now been replaced by a stuntman) goes flying backwards and lands on the pool table. When this happens, a wire can be seen on the stuntman, pulling him back and guiding his movement.

Continuity mistake: As Jesse, Diamondback and Homer try to black out the windows on their car (to protect themselves from the sunlight) Homer spray paints the window next to him black. The camera angle switches to a wide shot as the car drives by. At this time, the back window (which was just blacked out) has not been spray painted yet. It is totally clean again.

Visible crew/equipment: A cable is visible attached to the car during the explosion.

Plot hole: In the morning at the motel, the vampires have a big shoot-out with local law enforcement, which results in one at least one cop being killed. But when they escape, the police don't bother pursuing them or even giving them a another thought. Even for an 80's film, this is beyond ludicrous.
