Lord of the Flies

Continuity mistake: When Ralph is running from the hunters at the end and he finds the pig's head on the stick, he stops with his arms spread out a bit. In the next shot, even though you only see his head and shoulders, you can tell that his arms are now straight at his sides.

Continuity mistake: After Jack places the pig's blood on Roger's cheek, he then places it on his own. Look at the amount of blood on Jack's index finger. It goes from a little to a lot.

Revealing mistake: When the boys use the glasses to start the fire, there is smoke coming from under the wood they are lighting. This wouldn't happen. It would come only from the focused point of light made by the glasses.

Continuity mistake: When Piggy is killed, in one shot there's only a bit of blood on his head, but in the very next shot it's all over his face.

Revealing mistake: When the three boys are sitting by the fire the footage is repeated. At first the fire is normal, but suddenly the flames starts going downwards. (00:34:50)

Ralph: Face it Jack, you fucked up! We could've been rescued.
Jack Merridew: Back off man! I'm sick of your shit and so is my gang.
Ralph: Your gang. What's that supposed to mean?
Jack Merridew: What it means colonel, that no ones good for you and stop trying to run everything.

Trivia: Ralph wears his arm in a cast for the first part of the film. This is because Balthazar Getty broke both wrists just a couple weeks before filming began, but director Harry Hook liked him so much in the role that he just wrote the injuries into the part.
