Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when the pods and vines start growing all over the lounge, there is one shot of a green vine crawling towards a carpet, and then slithering under. Watch closely, near the carpet, and you can see the wire attached to, and controlling the vine, because the light shines on it, exposing it rather well for a second. (00:48:40)Hamster
Visible crew/equipment: Near the start when the young Alan goes to open the door and there is a close up of the handle you can clearly see the reflection of the camera man. (00:12:05 - 00:15:10)
Continuity mistake: When the earthquake begins, the floorboards start to break in two, and Alan starts falling so Sarah holds onto him. Watch the small circular window in the wideshot. (the window that the mosquito flew out of earlier in the film) To the left of the circular window are some empty wooden beams, but no items. When it then cuts to a closeup of the window breaking in two, items have appeared on the beams, and there's a banjo hanging up etc. (01:25:30)Hamster
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Alan is trapped in the quicksand, and the others are giving him items to hold onto, you can see behind him, to the viewers right of the blue chair in the background, a small stack of newspapers. But in later shots, such as after Peter runs out of the attic to go to the shed, and we then see Judy crawl over and grab the wooden music stand, to hit the spiders, the stack of newpapers has vanished, and a few other items change position, like the tennis racket.

Continuity mistake: As Mrs. Thomas is being taken from her car, after being bitten by the mosquito, the men put her on a pedestal and you can see she is wearing long green boots that nearly reach up to her knees. Yet when they are putting her into the ambulance, she has black heeled shoes on. (00:37:50)Hamster
Continuity mistake: After Sarah and Alan have been embedded into the floor by the quicksand, she rolls the dice with her teeth onto the board that's been propped up on Alan's face. The next time we see the board, when Peter's fighting with the spiders, the board's completely flat on the floor, when Alan's head should be propping it up. There's no angle between the main board and the two halves that fold out, but they are bent downward in the previous shot. Also, after Alan moves the board, at first it's relatively perpendicular to his face. Then, a few shots later when the spiders are retreating because of the impending earthquake, the board's rotated 45 degrees and moved farther away. It wasn't moved by rumblings from the earthquake- this is before the ground actually begins to shake. (01:28:15)Chris Moyer Grice
Revealing mistake: During the monsoon scene, Sarah has both her feet aginst the jaws of the crocodile, and so Alan jumps from the chandelier, and dives into the water. As he dives into the water, watch Sarah's feet, and her left foot slips into the crocodiles mouth, and his upper jaw slams down on it! The crocodile has a row of sharp teeth on at the front of it's mouth, which come down onto her shoe. That would be painful, yet she doesn't scream/limp/complain. (01:17:55)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When the monkeys are in town looking at the electronics store TVs, there is no sun in front of the store. Once the angle changes to a front view, the sun is now shining where the monkeys were standing in shadow before. (01:05:15)
[Alan is explaining to Sarah why Van Pelt is chasing him.]
Sarah: Well, have you ever thought about sitting down and talking about your differences?
Alan: What are you, crazy? The man has a gun.
Sarah: Don't ever call me crazy, Alan. Ever. Because everyone in this town has been calling me crazy ever since I told the cops you were sucked into a board game.
